Quick and Easy Bathtub Trim
If your bathtub face boring and flat like mine, do this! For under $10 and an hour you can elevate the look of your bathroom with PVC box trim. This project requires no power tools! My favorite projects are always cheap, easy, but impactful!
Here is my tub BEFORE. I’m using PVC trim which is waterproof and very inexpensive. These pieces were less than $3 each at my local hardware store.
All you need is: PVC trim of choice, Liquid nails, caulk, scissors, a level, and measuring tape. No powertools!
I’m measuring and cutting my trim at a 45 degree angle for a cleaner mitered corner. You can cut this trim with a good pair of scissors as well as a utility knife with the “score and snap” method.
Using liquid nails, simply glue the trim to the face of your tub. The key is to make sure each piece is level as you go!
Next, caulk any gaps or seams. I’ll caulk around the inside, outside, and where the corners meet to creat a more seamless or “built-in” look.
Thats it! Ta daaa! This simple update gives a bathtub new life and makes it feel so much more complete!
