Although a bathroom is an essential component of any modern home, it can malfunction and become outdated with age and frequency of use. An older bathroom may have fixtures that aren't functioning like they used to. In fact, toilets may not flush properly, and faucets may become leaky with frequent usage. Considering the latest innovative and affordable bathroom fixtures on the market, the old fixtures might be costing you more money to maintain.

Your bathroom doesn't require a complete overhauling to make it more efficient and increase its ROI. Just changing a few components in the bathroom can improve the aesthetics and functionality of the space. Here are some of the outdated bathroom fixtures that should be updated as soon as possible.

Bathroom Fan

A noisy fan in the bathroom is the first sign that it needs to be immediately replaced. Although most homeowners don't think of it often, an older fan may use more energy than necessary. Hence, updating the bathroom fan can help save on your energy bills every month.

Bathroom Sink

If your bathroom is quite old, chances are the sink is too. If the sink has green, yellow, or pink hues, it is an indicator that the sink is too old for the bathroom. Check for any visible cracks and damages in the sink. A modern sink can instantly transform the look and feel of your bathroom. Your budget will play an important part in deciding on the best type of sink for the bathroom. Many home construction companies say that a replacement can, straightaway, improve the functionality and appearance of the bathroom.

Bathroom Faucets

If you are not in a position to replace the entire sink in the bathroom, you should at least consider replacing the bathroom faucet. This is quite an easy upgrade that will give your bathroom a whole new look. On the other hand, an old faucet may not have the latest innovative water saving features such as a new faucet. Hence, upgrading the faucet in the bathroom can help save money in the long run. Make sure the new faucet has a WaterSense feature and meets the EPA standards.

Replacing the Toilet

Older toilets are more prone to flushing and clogging issues. Hence, they may not function well today. Although you can mitigate such issues using temporary solutions, they aren't long-term solutions. On the other hand, an old toilet uses more water per flush - at least seven gallons per flush - compared to the latest ones. This is not good for the environment, and it costs a lot. That is why you need to consider upgrading the old toilet. There are numerous water-saving toilets on the market today. In fact, WaterSense certified toilets use only 1.28 gallons per flush - which is even below the federal standard of 1.6 gallons per flush. Hence, a toilet upgrade is the best way to save money, the environment, and improve the functionality and looks of your bathroom.

Replacing Light Fixtures

Old bathrooms have large light fixtures that are outdated today. That is why you need to replace the old fixture with a modern light fixture to make your bathroom look new once again. There are many lighting fixtures to choose from - such as mirror lighting and overhead track lights - to improve the look and feel of your bathroom space. Adding a dimmer switch is a great addition to the new bathroom lighting fixture. You can control how much light you require in the bathroom with such a switch. You won't find glaring lights when you wake up in the morning that way.

Replacing the Showerhead

A new showerhead can improve your bathroom space quite significantly. Cleaning a rusty, stained, old showerhead may not do the trick. That is why you need to consider replacing it altogether. Don't worry, it is budget-friendly and you can DIY just in a few minutes.


There are numerous budget-friendly upgrades to improve the look and feel of an outdated bathroom. It helps improve the functionality of the bathroom and your ROI as well. That is why you need to consider replacing the older fixtures in your bathroom ASAP.
