We all have those restless moments when we want to do something different with the décor when the timing and budget just couldn’t be more wrong. Sometimes, however, you just need to do something different so that you don’t end up pulling your hair out. If you want to make some changes to your décor, but you’re on a strict budget, there are still some small and simple tweaks that you can perform to make your bathroom feel like it was given a significant upgrade. Upgrading the décor doesn’t always mean replacing the big hardware, like showers or vanities. Instead, you can choose to make simple decorative adjustments that will still change the room’s appearance and give it a new vibe without taking everything from your budget.
Repainting is one of the simplest and easiest ways to give your bathroom an upgrade. When you paint, it doesn’t just have to be on the walls or other common painted areas. Consider painting your vanity a new color, repaint your floors if they are made of wood, or paint another piece of furniture in the bathroom. The new color along with the touch up will make your bathroom feel like a completely new room and it will be a big change with a small impact on your wallet.

Invest in New Hardware
By hardware, we don’t mean all of the bathroom’s biggest appliances. Sometimes, some of the basics will do the trick. A new towel rack, toilet paper roller, soap dispenser, etc. will make the room feel enlivened. Changing the cabinet and vanity handles can also help to give the bathroom an upgrade. These things tend to look pretty dingy and rusty over time, so having some new hardware to replace them could ultimately become the upgrade your bathroom needed all along.

Sometimes, the biggest deterrent in a bathroom is the amount of perceived clutter and mess. This is especially true of small bathrooms where storage is limited and additional storage may be either too costly or too impractical. If you have even the smallest room for additional storage, consider using old wooden crates for additional storage. These can not only make great small, compact storage bins, but they can also be a decorative and stylistic statement for your bathroom.
