Are you looking to update your bathroom but need to do so on a budget? Use this list of bathroom renovation ideas to inspire your next DIY project.

1. New Paint

The quickest way to give your bathroom a refresh is by simply giving it a new coat of paint. However, don’t be mistaken into thinking it will be an easy DIY project. Your bathroom is full of nooks and crannies that you’ll have to paint around (such as toilets and showers). When choosing colors, stick with earth tones for a spa-like feel. If you want to give it modern twist, choose an accent wall to make a bright color that really pops.

2. Add Wall Decor

Just because it’s a bathroom doesn’t mean you can’t feature some cool wall decor. Hang up some paintings or mirrors. If you have the space, add a couple shelves for plants, frames or even signs. The possibilities are endless.

3. Replace the Mirror

Swap your same old boring rectangle or square mirror for a fun shape! It can be a circle, or even a collage made up of a couple mirrors. You’d be surprised at how much different a room can feel by making just this one change.

4. New Hardware

Give the hardware in your bathroom an update. Replace your faucet, knobs, light fixtures and towel racks. Give your shower head an upgrade. If it’s in your budget, consider replacing your sink entirely.

5. Update the Vanity

Don’t let your tight budget hold you back. Rather than replacing the entire vanity, repaint or stain it. This will make it feel like new without draining your wallet. If you do want to replace it, don’t buy new – upcycle! A vintage table or dresser might require some work but will be well worth it!

Giving your bathroom a makeover doesn’t need to be costly. There are plenty of bathroom renovations you can do yourself. If you are looking for a larger-scale remodel, there are several financing options available.
