5 simple ways to update your bathroom this weekend.


Trying to find ideas to update your bath? The search ends here! There are so many small ways to update your bath without tearing out walls. Here are some tried and true ways to change up your bathroom this weekend without breaking your wallet or your back.

1. Paint. An easy way to update your space for less than $100 while making a huge change to your room is to simply change the color of the walls. Paint color can give a room a dramatic look, peaceful aura or even make a room appear larger or smaller. That can of paint has a lot of power over your home so choose your colors wisely and when in doubt use paint swatches on your wall before starting your project.

Paint color was used in this space to give the bathroom a more "coastal beach" feel. By changing the color of the trim and closet door to white the room has been brightened, this was much needed due to the lack of widows and available sunlight.

These colors are available at your local Lowes. This space was repainted for less than $80 with left over paint to spare. Check out www.lowes.com for more color inspiration!

2. Add or change wall features to enhance the space.

From changing out your toilet paper holder to updating your towel rack. Cohesive changes to style your room can make it elegant, straight lined or even rustic.

This towel rack was made from a piece of rustic lumber from our local Lowe's ($6.77) That can be found HERE.

The hooks are available at Hobby Lobby on sale for $2.49 (regularly 4.99 a piece) HERE.

For less than $20 this small wall decor adds function and style to the space.

These wall pocket sets from Magnolia are a great addition to your bath. Available for $54 HERE. We love their look and function.

3. Replace your mirror.

It may seem like a small thing, but the placement, style, color or size of your mirror can make a huge change for your room. Choose a mirror that compliments your room but maybe adds a fun pop of color or interest to your wall. We love the Atlas Pivot Mirror from Magnolia. Available HERE

For $88. The clean lines and simple style make this mirror friendly to bathroom designs across the board.

4. Change Your Light Fixture. A dated light fixture can bring the entire style of your bathroom back to the 1980's. We love this elegant light fixture from Shades of Light. The simple lines and curved glass give a timeless feel with a rustic flare the bubbled glass is the icing on the top. Available HERE for $135.

5. Update Your Vanity.

A new vanity and sink can dramatically change your bathroom. Our local Lowe's,Home Depot, and Menards frequently have sales on their bathroom materials. Right now this vanity is available at Lowe's.

We love the pop of color, straight and elegant lines with the classic white sink. This vanity is design friendly and would be a great style to incorporate into almost any bathroom. Available HERE currently on sale for $249 (regularly priced at $429)

Our local Lowes had a sale on this vanity for $199. This simple and inexpensive update made a dramatic change in this room.
