Inexpensive Ways to Perk Up Your Bathroom in a Weekend
Give your bathroom a lift this weekend without breaking the bank. Use these style-savvy suggestions and start the new year with an inspired and refreshed space.
High Class Hardware
Have dated and worn knobs and pulls? Consider swapping them out for chic, shiny new ones. Fast and inexpensive, this tiny project has the ability to completely transform your bathroom’s entire aesthetic. Especially glamourous: bright, brass hardware paired with a white and black color palette.
Give your bathroom a powerful punch by pairing trendy and traditional. Simply install cool, classic wainscoting to the bottom half of your walls and then apply either an unexpected paint color or a bold, removable wallpaper to the top.
Snow White Linens
Nothing says fresh like all white linens. Go through and purge your bathroom of all those mismatched, ratty towels and washcloths, and replace the whole lot of them with ones that are cloud-white. You’ll be thrilled with the result — a uniform, clean aesthetic that is spa-worthy.
Inject some fresh style into your bathroom, as well as a little bit of cohesiveness, by adding matching storage containers. Try sleek acrylic boxes or wire baskets for a more modern look, or go with wicker baskets to create a more textured, earthy feel.
Whether your preferred style is sparse or ornate, rolling out a new carpet will instantly give your space a fresh new look, as well as bring invigorating color and comfort. For a quick change that’s easy on the wallet, consider recycling your hallway runner to your bathroom.
Floor-to-ceiling drapes are a window treatment that is wow-worthy. When in doubt, go with elegant ivory and create the perfect relaxation place — you’ll never want to leave!
Give your vanity center stage by rolling up your sleeves and brushing on a few coats of your favorite bold color. It will completely change the look of your bathroom, taking it from drab to fab.
Create High Contrast
Looking for a show-stopping upgrade that costs next to nothing? This is the one for you. Simply apply black paint to your bathroom’s window trim for an undeniably cool, high-contrast effect.
Shed Some Light
Get rid of those outdated light fixtures and ceiling fans and replace them with ones that are packed with pizzazz. The more sparse your bathroom design, the more bold your fixtures can be, as they have the ability to elevate simple spaces.
Peel & Stick Wallpaper
Do you have a hall bathroom that has been overlooked and neglected over the years? You can bring it up to date with just a few hours and your choice of removable wallpaper. For a bold-yet-classic look that will turn heads, consider a simple black-and-white floral.
