When a full bathroom remodel isn’t possible due to financial reasons or timing, you can upgrade your bathroom on a budget if it’s feeling outdated and in need of a little TLC. These affordable bathroom updates are easy to do on your own, require minimal effort and invasiveness, and are fun ways to refresh a space you and your family uses constantly.
A fresh coat of paint can completely refresh and sometimes totally change a space. You can choose to use the same paint to refresh the walls and hide scratches, stains and scuff marks or experiment with an entirely new colour for a much needed change.
This also involves painting over your outdated wooden cabinets. It can add a new vibe to your bathroom and make it look like you replaced your cabinets and drawers entirely.
Go ahead, take the old knobs off your drawers and cabinets and go to the hardware store for new ones! This will add little modern touches to your bathroom without the costs associated with prebuilt cabinets. It is also very easy to do on your own.
Wallpaper is an entirely new world on its own, with a variety of available patterns, colours and textures. You can go colourful, bold and fun or neutral, contemporary and modern. The options are endless!
Older houses and apartments can have very outdated lighting fixtures. No one wants those crystalized chandeliers! Head to the hardware store and find one that suits the style youre going for best.
Everyone loves accessorizing their bathroom with fun little additions. You can customize the style and colour scheme in your bathroom even further with things like shower curtains, toothpaste/toothbrush holders, rinse cups, towels and even countertop storage like bins and baskets.
