Do you feel like your bathroom decor could need some help? Whether your bathroom is old or new, there are some very inexpensive ways to update any bathroom decor.
Sometimes we feel like if we decide to tackle a bathroom decor project, that we have to eat the whole elephant all at once. Have you heard that prase? How do you eat an elephant? One bite at a time. Now, tackling a whole bathroom renovation project can seem daunting, time consuming, inconvenient, and expensive! I know. I have done a few. When I did a complete master bathroom remodel, it was a whole elephant, and I felt like I was eating the whole dang thing all at once!
Now, if only we could all be able to create our dream bathrooms, with the perfect bathroom accessories and bathroom ideas! If we were all experts at bathroom interior design, wouldn’t that be just dandy?
I have found so many sources for bathroom inspiration, and obviously I love to peruse Pinterest, and other design sites like Houzz. And sometimes seeing those beautiful bathroom layouts, with their incredible finishes and bathroom accessories can make you feel a little inadequate. But that does not have to be the case.
There are easy solutions that can get more life out of a drab or unfriendly bathroom, and they are easier and less expensive than you think.
These 5 inexpensive ways to update your bathroom decor are exactly what I used to create a more updated bathroom for my son and daughter. I wanted something that would be good for both girls and boys. A more neutral pallet is what I was looking for. Their bathroom used to be very gender specific and had bright blue and green accents that I had used when the kids were small. But they had outgrown it.
Now having a teenager in the house, I thought it time to give it a more grown up look. This look is grown up and also fits my homes decor. Check out the 5 things I did to change this bathroom decor without breaking the bank.
5 inexpensive ways to update your bathroom decor:
Paint is the easiest and most effective and dramatic way to update bathroom decor without breaking the budget. A gallon of paint can range anywhere from 20-50 dollars depending on the quality of the paint. I would recommend using a good quality paint, since you will get more for your money. Generally a good quality paint will have better coverage and go on better.
Even if you have an ugly tile, or maybe a vintage pink or green tile you dont love and want to do something about it, by adding a complimentary color or lightening up the space with a neutral color, you can add some style to the space without tearing the whole thing out. You can get more mileage from it this way.
- Shower curtain
This may seem obvious but changing out a dingy shower curtain for a more stylish one can be a great way to update your bathroom accessories and bathroom decor while staying in budget. Can you believe I found this black and white shower curtain at Walmart?
They have definitely upped their game and are bringing some pretty great products to their stores. You can find so many different options for shower curtains and they are a great way to update drab bathroom decor
Check out these great shower curtain options:
- Towel hooks
Believe it or not, simple bathroom accessories are important to the overall look of a space. Adding a decorative towel hook can add style to a bland bathroom. Sometimes by adding focus to other parts of the bathroom can take the focus away from the parts that may not be so pretty. I create this simple peg towel hook rack the same way that I did my new entry peg hat rack.
Here are some that I love:
- New towels
I cannot say enough about what new towels will do to a space. A fresh set of white towels can brighten any space.
I love to display my towels on my open shelves or over a towel rod. If you can find a towel with some texture or design that can be even better.
Here are some of my favorite towels:
- New Rug
Just like new towels, a new rug can totally transform your bathroom decor. You can choose a bright patterned design or a simple white or jute rug.
Check out some of these rugs that I have picked out:
There are also some inexpensive DIY projects you could do in your bathroom to update it without breaking the bank.

We installed board and batten in this bathroom and it immediately created more interest in the bathroom decor. There are so many different things you can do to update an old bathroom decor without tearing out the whole space. I just wanted to share a little bit of how I do it.
