Bring Your Bathroom Back to Life without Hurting Your Budget

Vintage Bathroom

You can achieve that “spa-like” space without burning holes in your pockets. Here are some simple bathroom renovations that can make a big difference—from choosing the best flooring and the right furniture, to selecting high-end finishes. Achieve the best possible results at a price you can afford.

1. Go vintage

Create a vintage look by matching the pedestal sink with a wooden washstand. Instead of getting an expensive dresser, you may also install wall mounted shelves and mirrors. Maximise the space and make it look more convenient. This is your best bet when aiming for a his-and-hers vanity without spending a fortune.

2. Prioritise the most visible features

Of course, you cannot expect to spend less than $10-$20 dollars on every item. This is why Bathroom International strongly recommends using expensive materials in the most visible areas. For example, you can add granite tile border to enhance inexpensive wood bead-board. The key here is to create a perfect symmetry by combining different materials when installing or adding new fixtures.

3. Get colourful

Design a creative pattern or pop out mesh artwork and add colourful accents. You can also try some DIY mosaic designs for more style. Materials may only cost you $7-$10 per square foot. If you’re creative enough with recycled items, you don‘t even have to spend a dollar!

4. Install outdoor-shower panelling

While glass sliding doors have become popular, another option you have are wooden horizontal slats. You can install the frame nods vertically to create more space. This also gives you an instant open-air shower enclosure. Your safe bet here is to use Mahogany items in wet baths.

These are just some things you can do to improve your bathroom. Again, you don’t need to spend a lot. Do your research and visit different thrift stores. Be creative and resourceful, and make your bathroom as personal as possible.
