Update Your Bathroom on a Budget: Here’s How!

There’s no need to spend a fortune on updating your bathroom when you can do it just as well on a budget. Take a look at some of these ideas to see if they can help you:

Add New, Affordable Accents

Does your bathroom need a bit of an update? It’s easy for this room to begin looking a little wors

You can add new, affordable accents like mirrors and ornaments to jazz the space up. You can find lots of mirrors that look way more expensive than they are, so you can create a really grand feeling in your bathroom. You don’t need to go anywhere fancy for your accents. There are so many budget stores that sell dupes, so you can make your bathroom look brand new for a fraction of the price you’d normally pay.

Add a Stain or Coat of Paint

Consider adding a stain or coat of paint to the elements in your bathroom to freshen it up. Add a stain to wooden elements to make them look brand new, and there will be no need to replace them at all! A fresh coat of paint can freshen up the walls and other accessories you may have that look tired. Do a good job and nobody will realise that you’ve just updated your old stuff!

Replace Your Toilet Seat

A new toilet seat can make the toilet look brand new in an instant. This is one thing I’d invest in if I were you. Toilet seats can become discoloured and cracked over time, but if you buy a good one it’ll last longer.

Make a Feature Wall

A feature wall adds personality to your bathroom, and can be made a number of ways. You could use tiles to create a really cool patterned, colorful feature wall. You could even use water-resistant wallpaper, or paint. There are no rules to creating your feature wall, so simply think of the kind of look you’d like to go for and go from there.

Shop at Flea Markets

Flea market shopping is a fabulous way to get new things on a budget. You’ll get plenty of unique things here for your bathroom, and I bet you’ll receive lots of compliments on them too.

Go for a Patterned Shower Curtain

A patterned shower curtain doesn’t need to be tacky. In fact, you can make your bathroom look far more designer this way. Patterned curtains can make cheap showers look way more expensive. Plenty of designers use pattern to give a professional finish to a room, so keep an eye out for a great looking shower curtain.

Wall Decals

Wall decals are simple to apply and look professional. They come with simple instructions, so you can update your bathroom in no time and with a very small budget. They can even look like you painted them on yourself!

Have fun updating your bathroom and leave any of your best budget tips below! See you again soon!

    Can’t beat a funky shower curtain! I have have a set of towels in a few different colours and every so often I change them around (obviously I WASH THEM normally, too!) so I go from a pink theme to a grey, for example.
