You Won’t Believe How Much a Few Dollars Can do with These Thrifty Bathroom Design Tricks| 06/18/2015
If only money grew on trees, you know you’d splurge thousands of bucks to get the perfect bathroom you always dreamed of. But money is a big issue to most people. And so, for real people like you and me, even a small bathroom project could be a financial challenge. But smart people can find ingenious ways to achieve what they want without having to worry so much about the budget. Here are some amazing ways of transforming your bathroom the inexpensive way.
The more tiles you use, the more money you spend. To save some money without compromising the design, you could choose some paint colors to apply on low-impact areas like the walls. If you really want to tile the whole bathroom, you could go for plain and cheap tiles and use a few expensive and stylish tiles to accent the floor and walls. The presence of a few expensive tiles will have a big influence on the overall look of the bathroom.
As previously mentioned, paints can be used on walls instead of tiling the entire room. But even if you’re not planning to install a new set of tiles, repainting the whole bathroom can be your quickest way of giving your bathroom a whole new, fresh look. Just make sure that you take as much time as the careful painting job requires. Just because the bathroom is the smallest room in the house does not mean it’s the quickest to paint. You’ll have to slow down and be extra careful or you’ll be dripping unsightly splatters all over the sink, tub and fixtures.
Bathroom Accessories and Fixtures
Sometimes, changing only a few tiny details in the bathroom can make the whole room a lot nicer. Updating your fixtures, towel racks, sink faucets, storage, shower caddies and even the bath rugs would help you give your bathroom an impressive makeover. You don’t have to buy every single one of them. You may play with your creativity and recycle other things at home. Say, mounting some pretty jars on the wall to use as small bathroom storage. You can also repaint an old ladder to replace cabinets and shelves.
Themes and Accents
There are lots of bathroom accessories in the market which come in different themes and harmonized designs. You don’t have to change the basic, most expensive parts of the bathroom to upgrade its design. You could just pick the theme that works for you and buy a set of rugs, shower curtains and other small accessories. These small items won’t cost you so much but they can definitely transform the whole bathroom. Using subtle accents in your fixtures can also do the trick. For example, you could pick a metallic color and find bathroom fixtures and accessories with that accent.
Get one Expensive Item
You probably didn’t expect this one. Even if your bathroom looks plain and cheap, putting just one expensive item in it will transform the whole room. You can splurge on something, say, a really nice shower door and then the rest would benefit from its presence in the room.
