Easy and Inexpensive Ways to Give Your Bathroom a Makeover 15 Cheap and Easy Ways to Makeover Your Bathroom


If you feel that your bathroom could do with a new look, but are concerned that you do not have the budget for it; then you have come to the right place.  Often, the easiest and most effective way to change the look of a bathroom is by having a clear out, adding a splash of paint or just investing in some well-chosen accessories, the likes of which you will be able to find at Allure Bathrooms.  In the following post, you will find some of our favourite hints and tips for giving your bathroom a makeover on a tight budget.

Replace Counter Top Accessories

Instead of spending money that you may not have, you can find new countertop accessories by looking through items that you already own.  A small plate or tray could be used to display your cosmetics, while an attractive jar, vase or mug can be used for your toothbrushes and toothpaste, and a cute bowl can be repurposed as a soap holder.

Have A Clear Out

Look at what you currently display on your countertops and think about things that could be stored elsewhere to give it a fresher look.  For example, Chanel and Gucci glass perfume bottles will always look classy.  However, painkillers and shaving gel should probably be kept in a cabinet or drawer.

Change Your Mirror

Another easy way to add a different look and feel to your bathroom is by changing the mirror.  Instead of looking for one in the bathroom department of your local homewares store, you could take that antique one or quirky one that you have in one of your other rooms and put into the bathroom.

Change the Shower Curtain

This is perhaps one of the simplest and cheapest, but you’d be amazed how much life a new shower curtain will give to your bathroom.  Along with the shower curtain, change the bathmat and remember to think outside the box.  There is no rule that says you have to choose a bathroom-specific rug; look instead at runners, kitchen rugs and ragged rugs to give your bathroom a truly unique look.

Fresh Coat of Paint

It may sound too simplistic, but adding a fresh coat of paint, even if it is a new coat of the same colour can change the look of your bathroom walls and ceiling.  If you have cabinets or shelves in your bathroom, you should also consider repainting these as well.

Wall Decals

If you think the tiles or walls in your bathroom are too plain and want to add an extra dimension of texture and design to them, you should look into buying some wall decals.  These are easy to put up and are not permanent, so when you want to change them eventually, it is very easy to do.  You don’t have to choose things like dolphins and other nautically themed decals – think about the colour scheme and the kind of atmosphere you want to project in your bathroom and choose decals that will achieve this.
