Yes, renovating a space can be challenging and expensive – but it doesn’t have to be. The price can range from a few dollars to six figures. However, if you are smart about spending, you’ll save a lot of dollars. The trick here is to choose upgrades that match your lifestyle and daily routine.
However, to streamline the bathroom remodeling process, here we have curated a list of top upgrades that promise to give your bathroom a luxurious touch on a budget. Curious to know what these are? So, let’s get started:
Declutter Your Space
Initiate your remodeling journey by decluttering your space. This is one of the best DIY methods, requiring little professional help or expensive equipment. Bathrooms are the smallest rooms which are usually the messiest. Also, these small rooms are easy to declutter.
When decluttering your space, only keep the important things for you, such as toothpaste, brushes, soaps, shampoos, etc. On the other hand, get rid of unnecessary items, including medicines, makeup brushes, nail products, decor items, etc.
In short, decluttering your bathroom is usually more a matter of clearing out unnecessary products and items.
Spruce Up The Walls
What’s the first thing you notice when you enter any room? The walls, right? You might have seen pictures of luxurious bathroom decor ideas on magazines or Pinterest. You may notice stylish tiles in the bathroom. While investing in stylish tiles is worthwhile, it can be pretty significant. Thereby, you can consider getting a fresh coat of paint on the wall with some geometric patterns, colorful wallpaper, etc.
The color and the design patterns you choose can instantly lift your space. However, if adding design patterns is not an option, you can paint your walls with a matte color. It is wise to know that matte finish works best for bathrooms as it absorbs moisture quickly.
Replace Your Fixtures And Fittings
One of the best ways to give your bathroom a makeover is by replacing the fixtures and fittings, such as taps, bathtubs, washbasins, etc. There are tons of budget-friendly bathroom items available which are stylish and surprisingly affordable.
While decluttering your space and painting the walls is easy for DIYers, replacing your fixtures and fittings requires professional help. Thereby, calling a professional plumber to update the fixtures can be a good option.
The experts will help you streamline the remodeling process by providing a range of fitting designs, colors, and styles to give your small bathroom a more refined look.
Add That WOW Factor
Make your guests say “WOW” after entering your bathroom. And one of the best ways to do that is by replacing your old mirror with a new one. After all, who loves to get their reflection in a rusty or old mirror?
When choosing the correct mirror for your bathroom, you can go for brass, rose gold, and chrome – as these are the new trends in home decor. However, you can also go for a black finish, which gives a high contrast to lighter spaces.
Also, don’t forget about the mirror shape! Look for interesting shapes, vintage detailing, or a big size to add plenty of light.
Keep Storage on the Top Of Mind
A storage space plays a crucial role in storing your bathroom essentials. After all, where will you store all your favorite soaps and shampoos?
Here are some of the best ways to maximize storage in your bathroom:
- On your walls: When it comes to storage space on your walls, you can add a floating shelf, a mirror cabinet, towel hooks, etc. However, it depends on your style and how much space you want.
- In the shower: Storage is limited in most bathrooms, especially smaller ones. Thereby, a built-in shower slot is necessary. Just make sure it’s big enough to store your essential products.
Use the storage space to put your essentials, such as soaps, cotton wool, etc. Also, mix in more decorative elements like candles, plants, and folded towels.
Give Your Bathroom A Spa-Like Feel
Everybody loves a spa as it helps us to feel better, relaxed, and rejuvenated. So, how about giving that sp-like feel to your bathroom?
Giving your space a spa-like vibe can be challenging, but it doesn’t have to be. You can quickly turn your dull bathroom into a spa with a few modifications.
For example, you can experiment by adding natural decor to your space, such as indoor plants, fresh flowers, etc.
Another best way to get a spa-like feel is by placing a tray of beautiful candles and decorative potpourri. This is one of the best and easiest ways to give your bathroom a more refined look.
Also, upgrading your toiletries, adding rugs, installing a new showerhead, and installing reflecting surfaces are some other ways to give your space a spa-like feel.
Don’t Settle For Basic Lighting.
When it comes to renovating a space, the lighting gets neglected. Investing in good lighting is worth it as it can make your small bathroom look bigger.
Surprisingly, there are endless lighting options to choose from. They are affordable and can instantly uplift your space. For instance, you can hang a chandelier over the tub to see your space transform with just a little effort.
When it comes to revamping a space, there’s a lot more you can do. Experimenting with wallpaper, changing the floor, enhancing the ceiling, and placing accessories are some other ways that contribute a lot to improving your space.
To sum it up, try experimenting with these tips and give your bathroom a more luxurious look without breaking your bank.
