5 Bathroom Decorating Ideas on a Budget
You visit your bathroom several times a day, shouldn't it be a nice experience?
Small bathrooms need love too! The average person sees the inside of their bathroom more often than their bedroom (because they're sleeping), yet it seems bedrooms get more attention when it comes to decorating. I say we fix that!
1) Hang a candle sconce on the wall for ambiance.
There's nothing like the ambient glow while soaking in the tub after a hard days work. Choose scented candles to keep your bathroom smelling fresh.
2) Trade bathroom decorations with your friend.
People spend lots of money buying shower curtains, rugs, decorative trashcans, toothpaste holders and more simply because they're bored with the design. Oftentimes these items are still in great condition and gets stuffed in a closet or sold in a yard sale. Why not ask your friend to trade and help each other out?
3) Switch the medicine cabinet for a decorative mirror.
Removing the old medicine cabinet is usually easy as removing a couple of screws and pulling it out of the wall. The new mirror should be large enough to cover the hole. You'll be surprised how such an easy change will liven up a small space.
4) Use over the toilet shelving to replace your medicine cabinet.
Over the toilet cabinets range in price, but you can get one for as little as $30 brand new. They are more stylish than medicine cabinets and usually store much more. Several of them have at least one open shelf as well as a flat space on top. Place a few knickknacks or a decorative basket or two for your smaller items to fit in to add style. If there's enough clearance between the top shelf and the ceiling, consider placing a candle on top. Place your best towels on the shelf for added design.
5) Give them something to read and without wasting space and have fun.
Place a cork board or piece of plywood on the wall near the toilet. Wrap it in a solid color of wrapping paper. Each week clip your families favorite comics and place your favorite page on the board with thumbtacks.
Use your imagination and dress up the corners with tiny bows or flowers.
