5 Ways to Update Your Bathroom on a Budget
Do you ever feel embarrassed to have guests over because your powder room screams the ’90s? Thankfully, bringing your guests and your bathroom into the next century doesn’t have to be expensive or time-consuming. Your bathroom can look modern, updated, and like new with a little creativity and elbow grease. If you’ve been wanting to add a little pizazz to your home but don’t have a large budget or enough time to devote to a renovation, here are five ways, you can update your bathroom without much effort.
1. Add New Wall Decor
One way to bring your powder room to life is by painting the walls or by adding some updated decor pieces. The right paint color can brighten your space or even make it seem bigger. Swapping out older artwork for new contemporary pieces can also change the whole look and feel of the room. Using vintage bathroom decor pieces such as vases, light fixtures, or signs also adds a unique flair to your outdated room. Open shelving is another great way to create a refurbished look on a budget. Adding shelving allows you to display other pieces of vintage wall decor authentically.
2. Update Bath Mats and Rugs
Not only do rugs and mats contain water and prevent slips, but they also can create a space that seems lived in and beautiful at the same time. Maybe it’s time to ditch the long shag rug you got from your grandmother as a wedding gift 20 years ago, and replace it with a fun new patterned mat.
3. Swap out Hardware and Replace the Faucet
Shiny brass hardware is a thing of the past and can date your space quickly. Updating the hardware or faucet in your bathroom is both simple and affordable. There are many different finishes to choose from that will liven your bathroom in minutes. Delta and other suppliers offer the following finishes in multiple dark or light varieties.

4. Spice up the Backsplash
If your bathroom doesn’t have a backsplash, it’s easy to add one—no need to stress about grout lines and cutting tile. Adding a stick-on backsplash is easy and can be easily removed with the heat from a hairdryer. Tic Tac Tiles stocks all kinds of styles that are unique and eco friendly.
5. Fake Tile for Less
Patterned and geometric tile is growing in popularity. However, it can be expensive, and installing it can be challenging if you don’t have the experience. Updating your space with vinyl flooring is generally less costly and simple to position. You can still get the fresh look you want without the price tag.
You don’t need to be embarrassed about having guests when your powder room is both functional and beautiful. Transform your dingy bathroom in minutes with a few new wall decor or accent pieces. It doesn’t take too much time to swap out old artwork for new. Painting the walls and updating flooring are simple and affordable ways to brighten up and modernize your space.
