Update your bathroom by Megan McKissick

Have you been thinking about redecorating your bathroom for a while, but it seems like a big task, or you don’t have the spare cash for it? Have no fear! You can update your bathroom yourself and still get a fresh, new, stylish look! Furthermore, it doesn’t have to break the bank! Read Megan’s tips below..

Update your bathroom on a budget by Megan McKissick

You don’t need to rip out walls or install new plumbing to give your bathroom a fresh new look. Here are five simple ideas that won’t break the bank

  1. New Towels

It’s not necessary to buy a whole new set of towels. Buy a new colour of hand towels or flannels that complement your existing colour palette. Roll them up and place them standing up in a basket for a colourful and interesting accent. Try incorporating several colours already in your bathroom, or go with all one colour.

  1. Frame Your Mirror

If you have a basic mirror on the wall behind the sink, jazz it up by framing it. Cut your choice of molding to fit around the mirror as a frame and paint it. Use neutral colours or a brushed gold or silver. Attach the molding to the mirror with liquid glue. Voila! You have a ‘new’ mirror.

  1. Paint

Paint your bathroom in a fresh new colour. Your tiles don’t have to dictate the colour you select, but they should complement each other. You would be amazed at the fun you can have with your existing tiles. If you have lime green tiles from the 1950s, paint the walls in a pale yellow. If you have a dark bathroom with black or white tiles, brighten it up by painting the walls sage green.

  1. New Shower Curtain

A new shower curtain for under £20 with unique shower hooks can make a big difference. If your bathroom is small, use a clear shower curtain or one in the same colour as the bath to give the illusion of a bigger bathroom.

  1. New Accessories

    • Buy an inexpensive bowl and fill it with sample-size toiletries for your guests
    • Try out a few coloured soaps to spruce up the sink
    • Buy candles in your selected colour palette and place in a grouping on a shelf
    • Buy a new soap dispenser and matching wastebasket
    • Add a small glass vase with fresh flowers. It’s always a nice touch

What do you think? I’m sure you’ll agree there are some great ideas above to help you update your bathroom. We will certainly be trying some of these, thanks Megan!
