Small Bathroom Renovations You Can Do in an Hour
Renovating your bathroom adds a lot of value to your home — typically more value than you put into it. But don’t let the word “renovation” scare you away. There are plenty of small renovations you can do in your bathroom that won’t send your budget spiraling out of control and won’t take up much of your time.

Other finishes include chrome, copper, nickel, and bronze, which can be brushed, polished, oil-rubbed, or matte.
