Redo Your Bathroom For Less
With these few simple tips you can take your bathroom from dull and tired to bright and inviting with little cost.
Start off your bathroom with a nice deep clean, and sort the things that you need and throw away the stuff that you do not use. Getting rid of clutter doesnt cost anything! You can find great clear plastic boxes, bins, drawer dividers, and clear cosmetic bags for things out of sight. (available at any discount store, craft stores, major retailers, etc.) For the items that will stay in sight put them in nice decorative storage containers to help with the decoration of your bathroom.
Tip: If your tile still looks dull and dingy try re-grouting it, fresh grout can make your tile appear new and is unbelievably less expensive to do rather than putting in new tile.
Add a little color to your space with a nice bright semi-gloss made just for bathrooms and kitchens. These semi-gloss paints are not only easy to clean, but the ones made for your bathroom are also mold and mildew resistant.
Tip: Try neutral colors for warmth, or try to match the color with the patterns and fabrics you already have.
Third, add new towel bars. Towel bars discourage piles of used towels on the floor. You can hang them behind the door or behind the toilet.
Tip: Decorative hooks work if you do not have the space for a towel bar, they do not take a lot of space and keep things off the floor.
A regular window curtain backed with a shower liner looks luxurious and very rich looking. Discount stores and department stores almost always have curtain sets that are reasonably priced.
Throw rugs, bath mats, soap dishes, lotion dispensers, and pictures are easy and low cost add-ons for any bathroom. Candles in assorted sizes are very attractive and also low cost.
Tip: Scented bath soaps not only smell good but have a luxury feel to them.
If your on a budget it does not mean it has to look cheap. No one has to know how much it costs, as long as your bathroom is bright and fresh.
