Bathroom lighting Fixtures
Lighting is an important feature and today most bathrooms use Pot lights or lights that are attached to the wall or a combination of both.
If you already have lights that are attached to the wall, you may be able to replace them yourself with a new light fixture. If electrical wiring is not present, you should hire a professional electrician. The same is true for pot lights. Just remember the most expensive part of bathroom remodeling is the labor not materials. Thus, if you are operation on a small budget, it would be a wise idea to replace existing lighting fixtures instead of paying an electrician to run new wires to different locations.
Bathroom vanity is an absolute mark of any modern bathroom. Make sure that you shop around as prices can vary quite a bit. Check online to see if any store is advertising a wholesale. For just a couple of hundred dollars you should be able to find a very elegant vanity.
