Pick A Color, Any Color

Painting your walls is perhaps the most affordable way to update a room. If your color is dated or is showing it’s age, why not give your walls a fresh coat of paint? A gallon of washable bathroom paint will run you between $30 to $50 dollars, depending on the quality and brand of paint you buy, with the average sized bathroom taking at least two gallons. With that said, many stores run specials on paint during the summer months, so keep your eyes peeled for those holiday sales!

Mirror, Mirror On The Wall

A simple way to add style to a basic bathroom is with mirrors. Not only can they add a much-needed bit of pizazz, but also mirrors can magically make a room appear larger (by reflecting light and giving the illusion of depth). Whether you need one mirror over a single vanity, or two over a double vanity, look for something snazzy that compliments your bathroom cabinetry and fits the style of your home.

See Things In A New Light

Dated and dusty lighting fixtures can make a bathroom seem drab. Simply swapping out old light fixtures can make a huge difference — both in style and quality of light in the room. Choose attractive, affordable fixtures for the ceiling, and for above bathroom vanities, and be sure to use energy-efficient bulbs to save money!

Razzle Dazzle ‘Em

Small details like new bath hardware (such as toilet paper holders, towel bars, and shower rods), or shiny new cabinet pulls, can help pull the eye away from the uglier details of your dated bathroom. Take down dark and heavy curtains, and add a Roman shade or simple valance over windows. Then add a pretty shower curtain, fresh towels, shiny soap pumps, bath mats, baskets, and tasteful new décor for an updated look.
