Great Ways to Spruce Up Your Bathroom

ways to spice up your bathroom

Remodeling your bathroom can give you a headache.

Sometimes you have a limited space to work with, a modest budget, or just don’t feel like doing extensive construction works.

However, a simple improvement or changing just one thing can do a lot for space.


To give you an idea, here are some great ways to spruce up your bathroom — big and small.

1. Create a spa area

One of the best things about bathrooms is that they can turn a simple daily habit, like showering or beauty routine, into a relaxing experience.

Start creating your spa environment with some plants placed high and low in your bathroom.

If you lack natural light, high-quality artificial greenery offers convincing choices that you won’t know the difference from the real ones.

Those with space to spare can make a room for a dedicated spa area. A lounge chair, side table, and stylish rug are enough to have some ‘me-time’ in your bathroom.

Don’t forget to put magazines and scented candles nearby to truly enjoy your in-home wellness retreat.

2. Build a walk-in shower

If you are not scared of some construction work, replacing your tub with a shower may be the best for your bathroom.

Besides being more practical, a walk-in shower allows you to create a new ambiance and control the appearance of this space.

In particular, you can choose the tiles, dimensions, and type of enclosure.

A transparent glass door will make space look bigger and cleaner, while an overhead shower will bring in detail of luxury.

Those who are already blessed with a walk-in shower could only change tiles and make no structural damage.

White subway or marble are trendy, sophisticated, and go well with any design in the rest of your bathroom.

Moreover, you won’t even have to spend a lot if you shop at salvage yards or online resale.

3. Repaint the vanity

An old vanity can be the reason why you feel uncomfortable in your bathroom.

While renovating the whole area is terrific, it can significantly stand out from the rest of your bathroom design.

However, it may be that all your vanity needs are fresh paint to shine again.

To completely reinvent the look of your vanity, change the hardware for something modern, like brass.

If you can spend a little more, change the taps with models that go well with this new style and invest in good lights.

4. Add something new

There are so many improvements you can do that can change the use of your bathroom without extensive renovations.

For example, most of the questions about bidet regarding where to find extra space to fit the fixture or how much will the additional plumbing cost.

The truth is that you can get a bidet seat that is installed directly on your toilet without breaking any tiles or walls.

Replacing your one-sink vanity with a two-person can be just a small remodeling if you are practical.

Depending on your budget, you can just replace the countertop and add another sink, with some minor re-piping work.

Or, you can throw out the vanity altogether and just install two pedestal sinks for a more minimalistic and cleaner look.

5. Put up wallpaper instead of paint

While paint may be the easiest way to breathe in a new life into an old bathroom, it may not be the most creative one.

To truly wake up the walls opt for fun wallpapers around the vanity or bathtub to make it pop.

If you are into DIY projects, you will enjoy doing this for your bathroom and hardly making any dent in your budget.

Bold patterns and colors are perfect to glam up your sink area without having to tear down anything.

Black and white prints are in style and a wonderful choice for people who want to keep it elegant and alluring.

To choose the right pattern for your bathroom, take samples from the store first to better visualize how they will fit.

Sometimes mixing two different motifs can create just the vibe you need for doing your makeup or relaxing in the tub.

All in all

Fining budget-friendly ways to spruce up your bathroom is challenging, but these tips offer practical and affordable ideas.

Before you start hammering, declutter your space first. It may be that all it needs is some tidying up, different decorations, and a few upgrades to be as good as new.
