Easy Tips and Ideas to Update Your Bathroom On a Budget

Firstly, let’s start with the basics.

An easy way to start is with a fresh coat of paint on your bathroom walls.  

It can work wonders for any space, and the bathroom is no exception.

It’s a simple and affordable way to give your bathroom a new lease on life.

Be sure to choose a color that will complement your fixtures and fittings.

During he bathroom renovation, I added the woodwork and painted it it my favorite color, Alabaster by Sherwin Williams.  

It adds a lot of character and charm in such a small space.  

Good lighting is a must-have in a bathroom.  

I get a lot of natural light in this bathroom with a sky light, which I love, especially beings it doesn’t have a window.  

However, having the right light fixtures in the right areas really matters.  

Overhead lighting, vanity lighting and lighting in the shower/bathtub area are a must.

Replacing your old towels with new hand towels and bath towels, can make a huge difference in the overall look and feel of your bathroom.

Not only will they look better, but they’ll feel better too.

Try opting for neutral tones or patterns to keep things looking modern and timeless.  

Why not change out your towel bars and towel racks while you’re at it.

It is a cost-effective way to make a big difference in a small space.
