Improving Your Bathroom on a Tight Budget

Have you thinking about renovating your bathroom? Ah, but that’s an incredibly costly idea, and I bet you’re wondering how to avoid it. That might have been how you found my blog in the first place! There are ways to improve your bathroom without spending a small fortune. With these thrifty tips, you can change the way your bathroom looks and feels. You can make it more useful or just make sure it’s less prone to being damaged. Let’s look at some of the best ways you can do this, keeping spending as limited as possible.

Repaint the Walls:

If your bathroom is looking a little shabby, a little bit of paint could do it a world of good. But, you will have to make sure that you choose the right color. For instance, yellow walls aren’t going to match if all your furnishings are made of black leather. However, that doesn’t mean that certain shades can not clash beautifully. If you do have black furnishings, you could simply paint your walls a lovely cream. This contrast will make the room look both stylish and contemporary.

Add Some Wall Decorations:

You can also think about adding some wall decorations to the bathroom to give it a little more life. For example, you could buy some cute pottery pieces to hang on the wall. Or, you may even want to put up some family photos, maybe even a collage? This is a great way to give the room a litte character while not letting it look tacky.

Thrifty Ways to Avoid Maintenance:

If you have kids, the bathroom can end up turning into a complete mess. Toothpaste marks might be on the walls and floor. There might be wet stains on the rugs, and they may even have picked away the caulk around the bath. It’s a home nightmare, but you can avoid it without spending too much money. Using metal Centria panels you can keep your walls safe and make them a lot easier to clean. The style and design of the panels can also add to the modern (almost futuristic!) look of the room.

Make Your Floor Shine:

If you have tiles or marble flooring in your bathroom, you may want to change it for a new style. This will cost a lot of money, and it’s something you probably want to avoid. Not just because of the cost but also the time it takes to replace. Instead, you can improve the flooring that you already have. You can put down a layer of epoxy resin. Once dry, this will make your bathroom floor shine like never before! You might even mistake it for being made of liquid.


Finally, if you want a cheap, effective way to improve your bathroom, add some candles and incense. Or what about a bowl of potpourri? These accessories will add some gorgeous scents and smells to the room, making it a place you want to spend hours soaking in the tub.

I hope you’ve found these ideas helpful and have fun improving your bathroom on a budget.
