Bathroom Decorating On A Budget
Giving your bathroom a completely new look might seem like an expensive proposition. But with a bit of careful planning and selective shopping, you can remake the room affordably and effectively. Here are some bathroom decorating ideas that won't break the bank, ranked for specific budget constraints.
The Limited Budget
While buying all new bathroom cabinets and storage units might seem like a very costly option, themed sets can bring the expense down considerably. There are also lightweight yet sturdy pieces made for easy mobility as well as a lower price point. And look around at other rooms for old bedroom cabinets or display cases that may be only a paint job away from being suitable for your bathroom.
The Very Limited Budget
If your budget is too tight for full cabinetry, consider shelving or stands with metal supports and bases, and a single wood or plastic surface. Over-the-toilet shelves, towel holders, and entry tables are among the more popular kinds of these eye-catching units. They often feature cutout or scrolling designs that let the color of your bathroom walls and light from the windows show through.
The Very, Very Limited Budget
Themed bath linens
Coordination can be accomplished easily with a shared pattern on your basic bathroom linens. An attractive shower curtain, pulled fully shut, makes an instant focal point for the look of the room. Matching or complementary bath rugs and hand towels add to the shared style. You can even create a perfect baby bathroom with child-friendly designs and some floating toddler toys nearby.
Seriously, Did I Tell You My Budget Was Limited?
Accessories for the sink and tub
OK, so tough times have made it impossible to follow the suggestions above. Well, take a cue from the fashion world: when you can't re-do it all, accessorize what you already own. For the bathroom, that means sink accessories like soap pumps and toothbrush holders, or cute decorative accents for the side of the tub. Items of this type can be found with adorable designs for just a few bucks.
