Achieving the bathroom of your dreams doesn’t mean you have to spend an enormous amount of money. Some small, simple changes can make all the difference so you can feel excited and happier about your space. Sometimes it’s not about completely remodeling the entire space; you can create a new space with a whole new vibe with some small additions and changes.
Vanity & Accessories. Do-it-yourself projects can be an excellent way to update your bathroom on a small budget. These projects usually require some problem-solving and some elbow grease, but you’ll be so happy with the results and the price tag. One popular DIY project is creating a new bathroom vanity out of a used cabinet. This can be done by getting an old cabinet you want to reuse in a new way or by picking up a piece at a thrift store. You can then sand and stain the piece.
While you’re at it, change out your bathroom’s accessories. This is an inexpensive way to make the bathroom feel new and to update to a more modern style without switching out big items, like entire bathtubs, showers or toilets. First, think about changing out your shower curtain and your faucets. Then, take a look at the lighting and decide if it’s time for an upgrade. At this point, add some new decorative pieces, such as paintings, vases, a stand-up toilet paper container and candles. You can search for these items at garage sales or dollar stores.
Tile. Cleaning your tile and re-grouting your tile can make all the difference, and you won’t have to replace the tile. You can even paint over old tiles if you want a big change.
Paint. Changing the paint in your bathroom can make it look like a whole different room. You may just want to freshen up your white walls, or you may want to go with a trendy color. You can always repaint it later when the trends change without breaking the bank. Pick a color scheme and stick to it when buying your new accessories.
Organization & Storage. Remodeling your bathroom is the perfect chance to de-clutter the entire bathroom and add more storage. This will make it more organized so you’ll be happier in the mornings while you’re getting ready, and you’ll realize it’s easier to find things and the space looks cleaner. Remove everything from the bathroom, clean the room from the top to the bottom and put back everything you want to keep. Throw away anything you never use; it’s just unnecessary clutter.
Next, make a list of the storage problems you experience on a regular basis in your bathroom. Are you having trouble finding a space for your hair dryer, your makeup or your cleaning supplies? Now you can find a solution for each of these problems. First, you can purchase a holder for your hair dryer that mounts on the wall or behind the vanity door. Secondly, you can purchase more draw organizers and create pull out drawers for the small items.
We wish you luck and hope you can enjoy a new bathroom without having to over spend.
