How to Makeover Your Bathroom on a Budget

List: Posted: 01/31/12

When it comes to home improvement projects, the kitchen and bathroom are known as the most expensive rooms in the home to makeover.  With costly fixtures and plumbing to consider, a bathroom can seem to be an expensive home improvement endeavor. 


However, there are many low cost solutions that can give you an dramatically improved bathroom, making it possible to include this room in your home improvement wish list. 

Shower Curtains


Like all rooms in the home, the bathroom can be made over with the creative use of colors.  Wall paint colors, linens, and even fixtures, can be replaced at a fraction of the cost of a full remodel.  If you're on a tight budget, start with the shower curtain in making this home improvement project a reality.  Find a quality shower curtain that will help you transform your bathroom into one you can really love.


Wall Color


Once you've found the ideal shower curtain, it's time to move on to the wall color and linens.  Since most bathrooms are small, most people think dark colors are impossible, but the fact is a rich wall color such as burgundy can be ideal in creating a warm bathroom.  You can also look for bold wallpapers with trendy and modern patterns to set the feel and theme. 




Finding matching towels and rugs will also enhance the appeal of your new bathroom.  Opt for modern pictures with thick frames to hang on the walls, which will enhance the appeal of the bathroom.  Realistic fake plants such as a potted orchid will give your bathroom that final touch of luxury.


Light Fixtures


It's easy to find paint and linens at a low cost by visiting a big box store or home improvement warehouse.  You can also find low cost light fixtures and places like this, which will freshen up your bathroom.  With a quick paint job and a newly hung shower curtain, your bathroom will look brand new.
