Easy DIY When You’re Stuck at Home
With many of us still stuck at home, there is one question on our minds. What else can I do to occupy my time? You’ve already binge watched your favorite TV shows and perfected the latest TikTok dance. You’ve cleaned your house a dozen times, tried cooking those new recipes and re-organized your furniture, again. So now what? Now it’s time to finish that DIY project, and there’s no better place to start than the bathroom.
(That’s right, it’s time to roll up your sleeves and get your DIY on.)
Humans beings are interesting creatures. When we’re hunkered down at home, we get creative. We get inspired. DIY projects are fun, exciting and it’s rewarding when they’re complete. But, they can also be time consuming.
What is one of the easiest DIY updates to do in your bathroom? Just look up. It’s your bath fan. And chances are it’s dusty, dingy and needs a face lift.
When a typical do-it-yourselfer decides to update their bathroom, they start by applying a fresh coat of paint. Quick and easy, right? On average, with prep time, it takes 8 hours to paint a bathroom.* Next up is the mirror, towel bars, and maybe a new light fixture. (Deep breath and sigh.) The fact is, it takes time to make these updates, and maybe even an electrician.
How long does it take to update your bath fan? Less than five minutes, thanks to Broan-NuTone’s new bath fan upgrades. It will take longer to grab your ladder than it will to install one of these upgrades.
Here are 4 easy DIY upgrades you can make right now:
- Refresh your fan with a universal cover.
Easily revitalize your dingy, discolored bath fan grille with the Broan-NuTone Universal CleanCover™ upgrade grille. This fresh, stylish grille/cover is designed to fit virtually any Broan or NuTone ventilation fan. It has a crisp, bright white finish that matches the most popular white ceiling paint colors. The cover’s low profile blends into the ceiling and is sized just right to conveniently cover existing ceiling cuts. This is the perfect project for DIY'ers who want to improve the look of their bathroom.
- Easily add an LED Light.
Wish your bath fan had a light? Look no further. Easily add an LED light to your current bath fan with the Broan-NuTone Economy Series LED Upgrade. This grille is also designed to stay cleaner longer with less louvers (slots) for dust and dirt to get trapped in. Installation can be completed in a matter of minutes thanks to a quick-connect plug. No wiring is needed, making this upgrade a no-brainer.
- Add a Bluetooth Speaker.
The new Broan-NuTone Sensonic™ Bluetooth Speaker upgrades are the perfect way to add your favorite music, podcasts or audiobooks to your bathroom. Enjoy crisp, clean audio while showering or getting ready in the morning. This upgrade also features a bright, efficient LED light and a quick-connect plug to make installation a breeze. Offered in two different styles to fit your bathroom décor.
- Make your fan quieter and increase air flow.
Is your fan loud? Does it sound like a jet engine with a few loose bolts? If so, this is the upgrade for you. The Broan-NuTone QuicKit™ upgrade is a motor and cover combo. The QuicKit™ reduces the sound level of your existing bath fan by up to 50% while improving air movement by up to 20%. No rewiring or new ductwork required. Simply pop out your old motor with a flat head screw driver and snap the new motor in place. This upgrade takes less than ten minutes!
