Bathroom upgrades using overlays

  1. Bathroom upgrades using overlays

    If you're considering a bathroom update, you're probably familiar with the typical approaches, such as replacing a countertop or toilet, or removing all the fixtures and finishes to complete a floor-to-ceiling renovation.

    However, there is another, far less expensive way to make an older bathroom look brand new: using overlays.


    An overlay is simply a new surface applied over an existing one. For example, instead of replacing an old and worn bathtub – which is costly – you can purchase an overlay system (called a tub liner) that fits on top of the existing bathtub. It's a little like giving your tub a facelift!


    You can do the same thing with your bathroom countertops and floors.


    Overlays come in a wide variety of styles and finishes – some of which can make your bathroom look significantly more upscale. Compared to a major renovation, the installation of overlays is relatively straightforward. A tub liner installation, for example, can be done in a day.


    You can learn more about overlays at your local home improvement centre and at specialty bathroom showrooms. 


    Until next time,
