How to Redecorate Your Bathroom on a Budget

Aug 18, 2007
There are a lot of different ways to decorate your bathroom, so sometimes it's difficult to choose the perfect bathroom decorating idea. There are so many different themes to choose from that it can feel overwhelming. Keep in mind that since it's your bathroom that you're decorating, you will be able to make the final choices as well as be the one who has to live with the final results.

So take your time and think carefully about what you pick. And if you can't decide still, here are some lovely bathroom decorating ideas.

Try Out the Retro Look

A sleek retro look can give your bathroom that vintage flair that makes your bathroom a room to talk about in your home. A pedestal sink and the black and white tiling can really help to bring this bathroom decorating idea together. There are website, magazines and local stores that can to help you to make your bathroom decorating idea become a reality. Don't forget the fixtures, either! For a great art deco bathroom, make sure to get highly polished fixtures to add the shine this look needs to really make it pop!

A Relaxing Day at the Beach

If art deco is not to your style, perhaps a bathroom decorating idea with a nautical flair will be more to your liking. This design is actually quite easy to implement, using light colored paint and the right towels and drapes to fit your theme. Try a sky blue color on the wall, or go for a neutral, sandy sort of brown, the lighter the better. Add a little art to the walls, something subtle like a picture of a boat or an actual beach photograph, and then use aqua marine towels to help bring the theme together. For an added touch for this bathroom decorating idea, try to find a window treatment that has some sort of light wood tone to it, adding to a natural look that gives an outdoor feel while still seeming open.

Try the Simple Touches

For apartment dwellers, bathroom decorating ideas are a little harder to come up with, since landlords usually won't let you repaint the room, and there's little sense in spending a lot on fixtures to increase the resale value of someone else's property. If you fall into this category, or for those looking to decorate on a budget, try to purchase bathroom accessories and pictures that will accent your bathroom.

The chances are that you'll have a bathroom that's plain white, so you'll have a lot of choices. For instance, buy a bamboo trash can and other bathroom accessories and give your bathroom an Eastern feel, or add green towels and a potted plant, whether real or fake, to give your bathroom an organic sort of look. If possible, add art to help bring the look together without making permanent changes. White and neutral color bathrooms really make a great palette for you to accent.

With the large or small projects, work with an idea to unify your bathroom's theme. Then you will have something you can enjoy for a good, long time.
