The most important thing you can do to keep the stress and time it takes to upgrade your bathroom low is decide what you want. Far too many of us make the mistake of thinking that when it comes to improving our homes, it’s a good idea to start before knowing what we really want. Whatever you do, don’t do this. As it will only make things more stressful and time-consuming. Before you do anything, take the time to think about what you want. Look at your bathroom and decide what you want to keep the same and what you would like to change. Make sure to take the needs of your family into account when doing this, to ensure it remains a functional space.
Think about the best ways to keep the update simple
Once you’ve decided what you want, the next step is to think about how you can keep the update as simple as possible. This means thinking about the easiest ways to achieve the look you want - the ways that come with the least stress. For instance, instead of repainting the entire bathroom, perhaps you could refresh the space by adding an accent wall. Get creative and you can make it much easier and less time-consuming to spruce up your bathroom. If you need quick update ideas, have a browse online.
Plan out every detail
If you want to make upgrading your bathroom easier, the most important thing you can do is plan out every detail. The reason that updates sometimes take longer to complete than they should do is because we fail to plan properly. Once you know the updates you want to make and how you’re going to go about them, you need to start planning the process itself. This means thinking about the exact style of bathtub you want, to choosing the right basin. There’s a lot that needs to be thought about and planned out, and it’s important to take the process seriously. Put together a plan that contains every update that needs to be made. Including what materials are being used and when each update will be made.
Get a helping hand
While you probably can’t stretch your budget as far as hiring a contractor to update your bathroom for you, that doesn’t mean you can’t get help. Ask any DIY-loving friends or relatives to give you a hand updating your bathroom. Explain that while you can’t pay them, what you can do is treat them to a delicious dinner or night out. Getting a little extra help will make the updating process much quicker and less stressful. Plus, if you get help from anyone who’s a DIY whizz, you can ensure that the upgrade is done to a high standard.

Many people underestimate how much of a difference small changes can make. However, that shouldn't be the case. If you can upgrade your bathroom mostly with small updates that are quick and inexpensive to do, do it.
