A Budget Bathroom That Is Bang on Trend

You may worry that you can’t have a chic and up-to-date bathroom because you just don't have the money to pay for it. But I'm here to tell you that giving your bathroom a makeover isn't as expensive as you might think. Read on to find out more.

DIY--

The first thing you can do to make sure that your bathroom is a bang on trend and on budget is to do the work yourself.

It's best to keep it simple and do the walls with moisture resisting paint, instead of tiling. As this can be both costly and time-consuming if you don't have any prior experience.

You will also need some professional help if you are changing the suite in your bathroom as it will need to be plumbed in properly.

But remember, you don't have to swap the bath and sink to improve your bathroom. Just pick a color and decor scheme that compliments the one that you already have.

Shop Around--

The next thing that you need to do to ensure that you bathroom makeover stays on a budget is shop around for the items that you will be purchasing.

Make sure to compare the process of bathroom furniture online before you buy anything. So you know you are getting the best bang for your buck.

Craft Your Decor--

Something else that can really help you to keep the cost of your bathroom makeover low is to craft your own decorative items. There are thousands of boards on Pinterest dedicated to this. Which you can check out for some inspiration.

Why not try making your own candle in dishes that you already have, in colors that match your new bathroom scheme? You can even add in some essential oils so your bathroom will smell lovely when you burn them, too.

Or, what about making your own rope wrapped mirror for a more nautical theme? It’s very easy to do all you need is a circular mirror on which to fix the rope. Go all of the way round the outside, and then leave longer handle to hang it with.

Simple Works--

Also, it can really pay to go for a simple, minimal bathroom design. Plain towels and accessories are often cheaper to buy. This can help you keep the costs low but still, provide you with a restful, chic space.

Going minimal also means you will have fewer items to buy, so it will cost you less, as well as being way easier to clean and maintain as well.

Use Things From Nature--

Lastly, another great idea that can save you a buck when you are renovating your bathroom is to use items that you have collected yourself from nature.

It may be a thing like shells or driftwood that you have picked up on the beach during your last family holiday. Or, it could be a stone that you have found while out hiking.

Items like these look great in a bathroom and don't cost anything at all. So they are perfect for providing that chic finishing touch and making sure that your bathroom is bang or trend, without going over budget.
