When was the last time you redecorated your bathroom?
Redecorating and remodeling different rooms in your home can instantly give your house a newer, fresher feeling. Nothing compares to the feeling of walking into the same old room you walk into every day and experiencing it brand-new.
Something as simple as repainting a room can completely change how the room looks and feels, not to mention that updating certain rooms in your house can go a long way in increasing its value and helping you make more money on it when it comes time to sell.
When you’re moving and preparing to sell your house, remodeling jobs will help substantially raise your home’s value once it hits the market.
Exterior and kitchen remodeling jobs are typically the most expensive projects people undertake when looking to spice up the appearance of an older home. However, one room that many people overlook is the bathroom.
Despite usually being the smallest room in the house, the appearance of your bathroom is significant to potential buyers. A good bathroom remodeling job can bump up the value of your home almost as much as a good kitchen remodeling.
The best part about this is that you can significantly improve the appearance of your bathrooms for a fraction of the cost it would take to remodel a larger room, like the kitchen.
We’ll provide you with some easy-to-follow redecorating tips that you can use to redecorate and remodel your bathroom for cheap, without breaking the bank. So grab your paintbrush, and let’s get to work!
Redecorate With Some New Art
Hanging art on your bathroom walls probably isn’t the first thing you would think of when you’re redecorating your bathroom. However, art can make your bathroom feel luxurious and exceptional.
One of our favorite hacks is to use some pictures from an old calendar for a bathroom. Pick out several calendar pictures to use and then buy frames at the Dollar or a second-hand store. You can cut the images to fit into the frames.
You just want to be sure to laminate them before framing them to prevent any moisture damage. Then, hang the pictures on the wall in an artful design. It will look spectacular when you are finished, especially if you choose photos with a similar theme.
Redecorate With A New Paint Job
Often, bathrooms are subject to some of the most frequent usage of any of the rooms in your house. And things like leaky sinks and cracked shower tiles can be quickly and inexpensively repaired.
While you might have to spend thousands of dollars on upgrading an older kitchen with new and flashy appliances and granite countertops, you won’t have to put that much money into a simple bathroom redecorating project to achieve a similar effect.
For example, a thorough paint job in a soft and neutral color can quickly transform your entire bathroom overnight and give it a completely new and fresh look.
Compared to other, more extensive remodeling projects, giving your bathroom a new coat of paint is inexpensive and can fit just about anyone’s budget.
You can cover up the boring white walls you’ve grown tired of over the years and add some color to your bathroom in just a few hours. You’ll be surprised at how different the entire room will look and feel after a simple paint job.
Try Other Paint Designs When You Redecorate
While we’re on the subject of paint, how ’bout some yellow stripes? It looks really impressive when finished, but it DOES take a long time to accomplish. Measuring out the lines for the tape and then placing the tape can be a challenge.
It isn’t something we would suggest in a bedroom, but a small bathroom would be perfect. You can also try other techniques, like putting the paint on with an old sponge or rag.
If you choose something like that, practice on a piece of cardboard first to know how you want it to look. Also, if you do want to put up the paint with a rag, you will want to have just one person do it.
It’s amazing how different this technique can look depending on the person applying the paint.
Focus On The Ceiling When Redecorating
We have always been amazed by what a difference painting a ceiling can make in a bathroom. When we’re talking about painting a ceiling, we’re not suggesting you paint it an ordinary white. You should pick a paint that has a pop of color.
I once saw a bathroom ceiling painted hot pink! It may sound extreme, but with the pale pink walls, it looked fantastic. Now, we’re not saying you should do the same, but you can choose your own colors to work with.
To paint the ceiling, all you have to do is lay some old sheets down to prevent paint splatter. It actually isn’t that hard, especially since a bathroom is a small space.
Consider Some Stencils When You Redecorate
Don’t you just love the way stenciling looks on walls? The only downside is that it’s a bit time-consuming, and it isn’t something we would recommend you do in an ample space.
However, bathrooms are generally small, making them the perfect place for stencil opportunities. There are so many different styles of stencils to choose from.
We like the fleur de lis stencils. But for a different look, try stenciling around your mirror or where a chair rail would go. Both of these options give you a slightly different look than the traditional border stencil.
Redecorate With A Fancy New Mirror
Instead of having that old medicine cabinet above your sink, hang a grand mirror. It’ll make your bathroom feel exceptional within an instant. If you’re worried about where to put your toiletries, you can purchase space saver shelves and hang them above the toilet.
They’re effortless to put together and will hold everything you need. Many of them have cupboards, so you don’t have to worry about people seeing your stuff. Once you have that taken care of, you can focus on your wonderful mirror.
Redecorating a bathroom can be really fun. The small space is easy to work with and allows you to do things you might not have done in a larger area.
A Few More Budget-Friendly Ways To Redecorate
Giving your bathroom a fresh coat of paint isn’t the only inexpensive way in which you can redecorate your bathroom and give it a new look that will benefit you and your family.
In fact, some simple home decor tips and a little flair can add a lot to a bathroom in a very inexpensive way. Here are a few simple and affordable things you can do that will give new life to your bathroom without costing loads of cash:
- Replace The Shower Curtain: Replacing an old dirty shower curtain with a brand new one, especially with a design or color that matches your walls, or your other bathroom decor, can go a long way in making your bathroom feel like it’s brand new.
- Install Some Glass Doors In Your Shower: If you’re sick of seeing shower curtains and want to take things in a completely new direction, consider installing glass doors in your shower to transform your space. While this upgrade is a little more expensive than some of the other modifications we’ve suggested, it’s still much cheaper than completely remodeling your bathroom and replacing your shower entirely. It will make your bathroom not only feel bigger but also newer as well.
- Replace The Towel Rack And Faucets: These two small changes to your bathroom can be done for relatively little money and can also go a long way in transforming the look and feel of your bathroom. A shiny new towel rack and new faucets will create the feeling of a brand new bathroom.
