Updating your bathroom can seem nearly impossible when you’re short on money. In fact, the average cost to remodel a bathroom is around $9,000. But if you’re not ready or willing to invest a small fortune on a renovation, there are plenty of ways to cut the cost by decorating your bathroom on a budget. Here are a few ideas to help you get started.
Slap on a fresh coat of paint
Bathrooms, especially older ones, tend to be dark and drab. You can change that by brightening your space with a few coats of paint. Using white paint on the ceiling serves double duty; it will make your space more cheerful and appear larger. When it comes to the walls, stick to fun, animated colors to add some personality.
Revamp the vanity
Installing an entirely new vanity can run up your costs dramatically. Instead, stick to the bare minimum by simply swapping out the mirror. A mirrored medicine cabinet placed over the sink can keep you (and your bathroom) looking great, and you can store your essentials inside at the same time.
Tailor your space to your needs
Part of remodeling the bathroom is customizing it to fit you and your family’s preferences. Investing in a few cheap bathroom decor items can ensure your space is both organized and functional. Some decor ideas include touchless soap dispensers, hand washing valets and shower dispensers.
Renovating, organizing and decorating your bathroom on a budget is possible — especially if you use one or more of the ideas above. Try them out for yourself and see how little effort (and money) it takes to refresh and revitalize your space.
