Ideas for decorating a bathroom on a budget
Decorating your bathroom is one of the most exciting and fun projects you can undertake. While it can be costly, there are a few ways to go about decorating your bathroom space on a budget. You only need to add some personal touches to make it stand out, which adds beauty and style, and adds functionality to the space. Let’s look at some quick and easy ideas you can consider if you would like to change up your bathroom.
- Affordable bathroom wall art
Wall art adds some character to those empty walls, and the good news is that it does not have to be expensive. You can create canvas prints on your custom printer and laminate them for water resistance. DIY paintings and artwork or a wall gallery of favorite objects can also work well as bathroom decorations. If DIY projects are not your cup of tea, you can shop some pieces that reflect your style from budget-friendly stores.
- Change up the lighting.
One way to give your bathroom a rich look is by changing the lighting. The outdated lighting fixtures should be replaced with more modern-looking fixtures from ferm living which do not have to be expensive. Some of these changes are DIY projects that you can do with a bit of guidance but leave anything major to a professional electrician. Hanging a pendant or chandelier over a vanity can give a sophisticated look, and inserting can lights that dim brings a whole new feel to your bath time.
- A DIY fresh coat of paint
This will probably come as a surprise, but a fresh coat of paint can transform your bathroom completely. Light colors have a way of making a small space look bigger, while dark colors add a touch of drama to any bathroom regardless of the size. To avoid mildew, you can ask the paint shop to mix in an additive to matte paint. Don’t forget to paint the cabinets as well to give the entire space a new and fresh look.
- Upgrade your hardware
Change the hardware in your bathroom, including towel bars, sink faucets, toilet paper holders, and cabinet knobs. Ensure your budget covers these replacements to give your bathroom a completely different look or do some of the things yourself if your budget is limited. Some of the changes are as simple as unscrewing and popping off old hardware and adding the new pieces. Consider adding pieces that are stylish and showcase your personality.
- Update your rugs and towels
One of the other things you can consider when decorating your bathroom is changing your rugs and towels. While this is not a necessity, it is a great way to complete the decoration process, and you can get some beautiful affordable pieces at your local store. You don’t have to throw out your old pieces but can add an accent color or pattern to add a modern touch to the overall design.
