The bathroom is one of the first rooms in the home to show aging. As bathroom fixtures get older, they can make your home look outdated, even if the rest of your house is beautifully modern and in great condition. Luckily, however, the bathroom is also one of the easiest and most affordable rooms to remodel. Often simple improvements can make a huge difference and bathrooms are typically small in comparison to other rooms in the home. Additionally, the materials needed to fix them up can cost less. If you're looking to modernize your bathroom, make sure that you look into these five must-haves. In no time, your bathroom is sure to look like new.

1. New Shower Door

Many modern homes include frameless shower doors rather than shower curtains or outdated glass doors. A frameless design is great for a minimalist look that is very easy to clean. You can also have your shower door customized to fit your bathroom perfectly. By taking measurements, you can even order your custom glass shower door online.

2. Improved Shower Head

Shower heads can have a big impact on your comfort, your utility bills, and make or break the design of your shower. Luckily, new shower heads don't cost much and you can easily install them yourself if you are experienced with hand tools. Look for a shower head that is designed to conserve water and that offers different settings for ultimate comfort and savings.

3. Different Drawer Pulls and Cabinet Knobs

If you're looking for one of the fastest and cheapest ways to improve the look of your bathroom, consider investing in new drawer pulls and cabinet knobs. You can purchase these items in many different styles, colors and price ranges at your average home improvement store. Drawer pulls and cabinet knobs can provide an instant face lift for your bathroom. Plus, you can install them yourself if you have a screwdriver and a few minutes to spend.

4. New Sink Faucets

Older sink faucets can look extremely outdated and can be a major pain to keep clean. Swap yours out for new models to enjoy a fresh, modern look. Plus, newer sink faucets typically help conserve water.

5. Brand New Toilet

If your existing toilet is older, buying a new one is a smart idea. A new toilet will be easier to clean and will look fresh and new. You also might find that it conserves more water than your existing model.
