How to Decorate Your Bathroom on a Budget
Is your bathroom an outdated mess that you prefer to get in and out of as quickly as possible? If so, you deserve a bathing space where you can relax and enjoy preparing for the day in the morning or winding down in the evening. But what should you do if you can’t afford to tear out your existing bathroom and start from scratch? Many budget-friendly decorating options could provide the aesthetic boost you’re looking for.
Here are a few ideas to consider:
You’d be surprised by the difference a coat of fresh paint can make for a drab bathroom. Whether you’d like to go all white or add a splash of color, your options are many. You could even avoid having to replace ugly cabinets by painting them.
If your bathroom lacks coordination, you can install new polished brass or oil-rubbed bronze hardware throughout. Hardware options include faucets, towel bars, lighting fixtures, toilet handles, cabinet knobs, and more.
Your outdated bathroom probably includes unfashionable light fixtures—both in the ceiling and above the vanity. Whether you prefer minimalist, modern, or antique, you can make a significant upgrade by swapping out your light fixtures for something new.
Install Waterproof Paneling
Think of the aesthetic difference it would make if the lower half of your bathroom walls were covered by beadboard paneling or wainscotting. You can use natural wood with waterproof paint or low-maintenance PVC.
Add Rugs or Window Treatments
If you’d like to add some classic character to your bathroom, you can install stylish café curtains and round out the look with a complementary rug.
Wallpaper Your Cabinets
Replacing cabinets can be costly and often unnecessary. If your bathroom cabinets are organized well but ugly, you can transform their inset surfaces with peel-and-stick wallpaper.
Add Some Plants
An especially inexpensive way to freshen up your bathroom is to decorate it with some potted plants. Consider a larger plant in the corner, some flowers in a vase on your vanity, and a succulent on the windowsill.
Tile a Wall
An accent wall can pull attention away from a less-than-attractive tub or shower. Consider floor-to-ceiling subway tile to achieve a big splash while making the room seem larger.
Add Wall-Mounted Cabinets
You can never have too much storage space in a bathroom, and if you have an empty wall to work with you can add the perfect place to stash towels and washcloths with a wall-mounted cabinet that won’t take away floor space.
