Bathroom quick fix

smarouJanuary 27, 2013
We moved into a modular home for the winter months and unfortunately it comes with this standard outdated tile surrounded countertop and tub....how can I fix this up w/o a lot of money invested...this is not a permanent home!
Should i take off the shower doors and put a curtain in?

As it is not a permanent home, I don't think I would go to the trouble of taking off the shower doors. I think the biggest difference you could make in this room would be to paint the walls. While it is a lovely color of green, it clashes with the blue. I would paint the walls an off-white or perhaps even gray color. Another cheap, temporary fix would be to cover up the vinyl counter and tub facing (it looks like the same material as the counter?) with contact paper (leaving just the tile edge exposed). I once knew someone who did this in an apartment rental and it made a huge difference. Obviously, not a long term solution but it would work while you are staying there. Instructions are readily available online. New decorative knobs on the cabinet doors might be a nice touch as well.
