For a smaller guest bathroom or half bath, switching out a freestanding vanity can quickly transform your space. For larger bathrooms with built-in vanities, consider replacing, refacing or renewing the existing cabinetry and countertops to update the focal point of the room.

• Replace: Give your bathroom a brand new look with a cabinet or countertop replacement. Cabinet and countertop replacement allows you to change the style and overall feel of the space. Replace an outdated countertop with fresh granite or add more cabinets for maximum storage space.

• Reface: Cabinet refacing is an easy way to makeover the bathroom without undergoing a full remodel. A cabinet reface will keep the existing layout intact, but allows for a change in hardware, door style and color. Cabinet refacing allows you to upgrade plain cabinets to doors with intricate detailing or raised paneling.

• Renew: A cabinet refinish makes a big impact for little time and budget. Swap out hardware and coloring to completely change the look and feel of the bathroom. Lighten up a dark bathroom by refinishing the cabinets in a lighter hue. Add a fresh coat of paint to the walls for an instant mini-makeover.
