Are you ready to give your bathroom an upgrade but on a tight budget? Don’t worry because in this article you will get simple and fun ideas for decorating your bathroom in a frugal way. One thing you shouldn’t do is move around the furniture in your bathroom because this drives renovation prices up. Another affordable way to renovate your bathroom is to exchange the old vanity for a budget-friendly new one. Here are some other tips for renovating the bathroom on a budget.
Paint Over Drab Bathroom Walls
This is an inexpensive way to achieve a new look for the bathroom. Choose a bold color as this adds flair to the bathroom overall. Visit the local paint store and look over a few palettes with your spouse. If you and your spouse disagree on the paint color, come to a compromise and pick a color that you both can agree on.
Pump Up the Accessories
Small and elegant accessories work wonders for inexpensive bathroom decor. Decorative soap dispensers and soap holders, tissue racks, and small multicolored or floral area rugs can all be used to make your bathroom look lovely. Just make sure that you don’t clutter the bathroom with too many accessories.
Reuse Items from the Bedroom and Living Room
This keeps you from having to buy new decorations for the bathroom. Take the old silk gold curtain that you used for the bedroom and use it in the bathroom. Or if you have a side chair that you no longer need for the kitchen, take this and use it in the bathroom.
Refinish That Tub
Instead of buying an expensive tub, why not refinish your current one? If you’re not skilled in doing this, watch some online videos about the task, and you can also get some help from relatives or close friends.
Replace the Faucet and Other Fixtures
Another thing you can do is purchase inexpensive faucet and other bathroom fixtures. This immediately adds a new style to the bathroom. For example, you might decide to purchase chrome knobs for your new brass faucet for a two-tone look in the bathroom. Or you might decide to install wooden fixtures for a more rustic look.
Switch the Lighting
Over time your contemporary lighting gets old and dull. Thankfully there are inexpensive and stylish light fixtures that look fantastic in the bathroom. Track lights, wall sconces, and pendant lights are all complimentary for the bathroom.
Get a New Toilet
Thanks to the array of sales that home improvement stores offer on toilets, it shouldn’t be too hard to buy an affordable yet beautiful and energy-efficient toilet. Ask the salesperson which brands are the best and why.
Stack Towels on a Ladder
If you have an old ladder in the basement, take it out and use for stacking towels neatly in the bathroom. You can even spray paint the ladder in a color that complements the bathroom’s theme. For example, if your bathroom has a Tuscan theme, you can paint the ladder a dark red color.
Regrout Tiled Floors
Sometimes minor repairs are needed in inexpensive bathroom remodeling. Once you give the grout new life, your bathroom’s tiled floors will look brand new, and you won’t have to get new floors.
Install Decorative Wallpaper
Another quick and affordable way to update your bathroom is to install decorative wallpaper on the bathroom walls. Today’s styles of wallpaper look a lot better than the wallpaper of decades past. And you can choose from a variety of patterns and colors.
Consider Using Larger Tiles for Flooring
Large tiles are neat for small bathrooms because they make the bathroom appear larger. Don’t just go for plain white or large gray tiles. Consider other neat colors such as teal, burgundy, black, or even metallic gold or silver.
In conclusion, these ideas will help you renovate your bathroom without breaking the bank. Get inspiration from home decorating magazines, suggestions from others, and your personal style when renovating the bathroom. When guests see the new bathroom, they might be inspired to do their renovation.
Most importantly, you will have a relaxing haven where you can get relief from the stresses of the day.
