When it comes to remodeling, your bathroom is often on the top of your list, but it’s also the most expensive to change up. Messing with plumbing and lighting is intimidating to do on your own, so your bathroom often stays the same while the rest of your home gets new decor. Luckily, if you want to fix up your bathroom and give it a facelift, there are some very affordable and easy DIY projects you can take on to give your bathroom a new look. Here are some suggestions for how to remodel your bathroom.
Unless you’re fortunate to have a really large bathroom, storage is probably an issue. Bulky cabinets and stuffed closets only go so far, and add nothing to your bathroom’s looks. Floating shelves are an easy and affordable way to add more storage without taking up more floor space. You can get the wood cut for you, or cut it yourself if you’re more handy. There are tons of floating shelf DIYs online, so simply choose the one that matches your skill level and get building! You can personalize the shelves with unique stains.
Wooden basket towel holders
For another storage idea that involves zero building, you can mount wicker baskets on the wall for holding rolled-up towels. This is a great way to free up floor and closet space, and keep all your towels in the bathroom for more convenience. The wicker gives the bathroom a rustic, comfy feel, and you have a lot of options about basket size.
Miscellaneous storage ideas
For more storage options for smaller items like cosmetics and so on, experiment with miniature painted flower pots, mason jars, and even spice racks. These are all very affordable and customizable, and add elegance and style to your bathroom. Mason jars come in a variety of sizes and designs, and can be painted or even mounted on a wooden plank. Spice racks are great for nail polishes, and flower pots add a summery feel to your decor.
Spray-painting faucets and doorknobs
For changing up your actual bathroom appliances, you don’t have to go through the hassle of actually replacing anything. By spray-painting faucets and doorknobs, you can add subtle changes to your decor that make a big impact. There are lots of spray-paints designed just for metal appliances and come in colors like antique, gold, chrome, and so on.
