Decorating Your Bathroom on a Budget

Description: Frugal, creative tips for updating your bathroom on any budget.
Maybe you’ve just moved into a new house and you need to make your new bathroom bearable, or maybe you just need a new look for your old bathroom. Either way, it is possible to completely redo your bathroom while on a budget.
First of all, you may be surprised by how improved your bathroom can look just by getting some brand new bath towels and accent towels and bath accessories. And if you have a little extra money, a new coat of paint is nice, too. You don’t need to completely remodel your bathroom to make it look great – you may just need to redecorate.
Fabric can make a big impact on your bathroom. If you have a bathtub, a shower curtain can really add some character and disguise an unseemly bathtub. Window curtains can also improve the look of your bathroom. If you are crafty, you can even go out and buy fabric and sew your own shower curtain and window curtains out of the same fabric – then you just need to buy a shower liner to seal the deal, so to speak. And before checking out the fabric store, you may want to consider using a basic bed sheet – hey, you could even buy the same sheets for your bed and tie the two rooms together!
Fabric can be used in other ways, too. If you have a sink without a cupboard beneath, you can get instant storage space by gathering some fabric and attaching around your sink with something as simple as Velcro.
You can even get some Modge podge and decoupage pieces of fabric to containers that hold your cotton balls and tissues, etc. Of course, you may not want to use that same fabric on all of these items. Sometimes just having a few items that match can be enough – you don’t want the décor of your bathroom to be overwhelming or gaudy.
You can always add a plant to your bathroom, too. You can replace hardware and knobs or faucets.
Changing your light fixture and properly lighting your bathroom can make a huge difference, too. Or maybe you want to focus on getting a beautiful mirror. Even when shopping on a budget, there are some items that are worth splurging on.
You probably can not afford to make all of these changes while decorating your bathroom, but even making a few changes can make a big difference.
