Beautiful, Easy and Budget-Friendly Ways to Update Your Bathroom

Today’s bathrooms are all about beauty, convenience and, of course, a little pampering. (O.K., maybe a lot of pampering.) It may not be your favorite room in the house, but it is definitely one of the most used. So, why not make it the best it can be?

As part of our continuing series of beautiful, easy, and budget-friendly ways to update your home, Granite and TREND Transformations offers, for this month, some stylish and clever tips to transform your bathroom into a beautiful, well-appointed sanctuary.

Upcycle for more storage

We could all use extra storage space, especially in the bathroom. Moving an unused nightstand or small dresser into the bathroom is a clever and budget-friendly way to upcycle what you already have while gaining storage space at the same time. Try refinishing the piece or painting it a fun color to add character to the room.

A touch of nature

Bringing a touch of nature into your bathroom is an easy way to add beauty and freshness to the décor of this space. Whether you pick flowers from your own garden or plant your favorite greenery in a small decorative pot, this budget-friendly decorating tip can bring a sense of cheer and tranquility to your bathroom.

Touchless soap dispenser

It’s time to ditch the soap dish and go touchless. As a partner to touchless faucets (featured in an earlier blog), the placement of a touchless soap dispenser is an easy way to restrict the spread of germs by keeping the sink a “touch-free” zone. Additionally, it’s a more fun and decorative way to display and use your favorite soap.

Self-closing toilet lids

Self-closing toilet seat lids may finally put an end to the time-tested question, “Who left the toilet seat up?” This clever product idea not only eliminates the spread of germs in the bathroom but is easy to install. It is sure to become one of your favorite bathroom conveniences.

Elegant lighting

Chandeliers are finding their way into more unsuspecting places, as today’s homeowners are exploring their “fancy sides” and decorating out of their “traditional” boxes. Hanging a chandelier in the bathroom is becoming one of today’s hottest design trends, and you can see why. This touch of elegance not only illuminates the bathroom in style but adds sophistication to a room that is typically “all business.”

And, when it comes to other types of bathroom lighting, design experts agree that the placement of sconces on either side of a vanity mirror is one of the best ways to add light where you need it most.

New showerhead and hardware

If you’re looking for a spa-like experience, then look no further than your showerhead. Today’s showerheads are like waterfalls for your soul. Not only will they elevate your shower experience but some of today’s brands offer energy-saving features that can help you save money on your water bill. And, if your budget allows, you may want to update your shower faucet, too!

Refresh your vanity

Whether you choose a slick, trendy look or prefer a more charming, farmhouse appeal, painting or refinishing your vanity is a beautiful and budget-friendly way to update your bathroom’s appearance.
