DIY Home Bathroom Decorating for Under Fifty Dollars
Does your bathroom look like a sterile hospital bathroom?
I love color and I think looking at colors makes you happy. This bathroom décor I will be showing you is very inexpensive and adds a punch of color when you walk into it. You bathroom will go from drab to awesome with these few decorating tips.
Before Pictures of Bathroom
Black and White Bathroom
You can see from the photos that this bathroom is drab. It was also hard to photograph because it is 9 feet x 8 feet, with the walk in shower(behind the entry door) and whirlpool bathtub taking up most of the floor space on the left hand side. This bathroom also has double sinks on the right hand side with a huge mirror to enhance the actual size of the room.
There were no throw carpets and a clear shower curtain that added to the boredom of this space. There are great amenities but no pizzazz.
Bathroom Shower Curtain and Bathroom Carpets
Cheap Bathroom Makeover
The shower curtain I purchased was clear with huge colored flowers on it. I don't like to feel closed in when I shower so the print on clear works for me.
I choose big flowers and red shag carpets because I love the old retro look of the 1970s. The carpet in the bedroom is also red so I wanted to follow into the bathroom with the same color.
I shopped at Walmart.
- The shower curtain was $10.00.
- The shag carpets were $14.95 each on sale from $19.95.
- carpet seaming tape $4.95
I needed 2 carpets 5 feet x 3 feet 4 inches. These two carpets were bound on the edges so they won't unravel. The first carpet in front of the toilet fit nicely in place lengthwise without cutting it. The second carpet I turned and cut six inches off of the length of it, that, fit nicely in the hole above the other carpet in front of the sink.
I used carpet seaming tape to joint all the carpet pieces together so they wouldn't shift when you walked on them.
I added red baskets to hold the things we use everyday along with other red accessories and a pink towel set I already owned that looks great. I would like red towels so maybe in the future that will happen.
- TIP: If the seam between the two carpets bothers you, buy a throw rug to cover it.
- Putting red accessories around the bathroom gives the impression the bathroom is red without painting the bathroom red.
Flower Shower Curtain
- How do we do Pizzazz? Take your bathroom shower curtain and copy the flowers with your copy machine. It doesn't matter if the whole flower copies or not.
- Cut out the flowers.
- scotch tape them to the wall to form a pattern you like.
- You can fasten them on wall with wallpaper paste or a paste you make with flour and water.
TIP: I just used scotch tape so they can easily be remove to change the pattern if I wished.
This bathroom was hard to photograph to see the whole room but I think you will get the drift of this decorating idea. You could even cover an entire wall this way or have fish or seashells floating around the ceiling with a seascape shower curtain. You can have fun with any pattern shower curtain you have. Thank you for reading and have a great day!
