5 Ways to Upgrade Your Bathroom on a Budget

Does your bathroom need a makeover? Even if you don’t have the budget for a full remodel, you can still update your bathroom with these 5 easy tips from Harkraft.

1. Paint the walls.

One of the cheapest ways you can instantly transform your bathroom is to give the walls a fresh coat of paint. Use a light-colored shade of paint for small bathrooms to make them feel bigger. Lighter colors also make your bathroom look bright and fresh, especially if you have sunlight coming in through a window.

Since the bathroom is a small area, it doesn’t take long to paint the whole room, and if you decide you don’t like the first color you chose, you can always paint a second coat in a different color.

2. Update the bathroom mirror.

Bathroom mirrors are a focal piece of most bathrooms. You can make your bathroom mirror look more stylish and dramatic by adding a frame to your existing mirror.

Do-it-yourself bathroom mirror frames are easy to install, and they come in a wide variety of colors, materials, and sizes. Add a metallic frame for a contemporary look or a paneled wood frame for a more traditional look.

You can also replace your bathroom mirror with a framed mirror or hire a contractor to install a custom bathroom mirror, if your budget allows.

3. Install a custom shower door.

If you want to upgrade your bathroom but don’t have the budget for a full remodel, consider installing a custom shower door. Glass shower doors give your bathroom a “professional remodel” look without the steep price tag. You can choose between framed and frameless options for your custom shower door.

4. Update your décor.

You’d be amazed at how much of a difference accessories make in setting the tone for your bathroom. Details like framed art, plants or dried arrangements, decorative jars, mirrors, and other elements can give you the style you want even without a full bathroom renovation. Use texture and color to add dimension to your bathroom, and group similar items together.

5. Give your bathroom cabinets a fresh look.

Besides painting the walls, you can also give your bathroom cabinets a fresh coat of paint. Brighten up your bathroom cabinets with a neutral color. Then add new cabinet hardware for a new look without the cost of replacing your cabinets.
