Your bathroom should be a pleasant space where you can prepare for whatever the day may bring you.
However, a complete remodeling of a bathroom may be out of the question for those looking to save money.
Luckily, you can make your bathroom look luxurious on a budget with a minimal amount of your funds,
energy, and patience. You are sure to see results immediately if you follow our simple tips and tricks that cater
to anyone’s aesthetic, needs, and wants.
Find your aesthetic
It’s essential to consider your personal style and preferences when designing any room you’ll use on a regular
basis. If you aren’t planning on selling your home, you may undoubtedly create a bathroom that is unique to
you and makes you happy. If you plan to sell it, though, you might want to go with a mainstream style.
Having a general sense of the style you want in your space can aid you in creating your own version of luxury
and a bathroom in which you will feel pampered on a daily basis. If you’re in need of some inspiration, find
ideas on the internet, choose a color scheme that suits you, and then move on to the remainder of our helpful
Choose marble when possible
One of the simplest ways to spice things up in your bathroom is to use marble. Marble, which is associated with
elegance and sophistication, can be used in a range of ways, including vanities, showers, flooring, and
containers that rest neatly on the sink. Don’t feel obligated to spend a lot of money on real marble—there are
many low-cost tile solutions that will suffice.
Get affordable pieces of furniture
Do not feel like you need to splurge on brand new expensive items in order to make your bathroom look
luxurious. There are countless inexpensive solutions that may drastically remodel your bathroom. Look for
sales, shop for second-hand items and try and strike a deal on key items. For example, a big and unique mirror
will with one simple step make your bathroom look more put together and luxurious. Furthermore, such abstract
mirrors can act as a centerpiece. You can also replace your basic lights with vintage ones that feel luxurious but
aren’t too expensive. With a few simple luxurious looking items you are sure to see a difference.
Refurbish what you already have
You can certainly get by with the items you currently have on hand. On the other hand, these items may require
a little more attention to appear luxurious. You can repaint old furniture in a color that complements your
chosen scheme. You may even put marble vinyl on the top to make it look even more lavish. Why not turn
outdated shelving into open shelving that will not only look great but will also function as a focal point? Since
most high-end bathrooms have some type of seating, transform an old armchair and add it to your bathroom.
Don’t worry; even the bulkiest furniture, once transformed, can fit into the style of your choosing. For example,
if you’re moving and wish to bring your washing machine and dryer, you still may make such items fit your new
luxurious bathroom. A simple wipe down, sticking beautiful decals onto them, or placing decor on top of them
will make even such bulky items fit the aesthetic. So, hire movers for this task, and save yourself the trouble of
carrying these heavy items by yourself.
Place unappealing items away from the view
Nothing ruins the look of a bathroom more than clutter, containers that don’t match, and general disarray. We understand the bathroom is home to necessary but unappealing items. There is, however, a simple solution:
store them in cupboards or suitable containers. For example, your liquid soap or shampoo may look lavish in a
glass container with a dispenser. These containers do not have to be expensive, but to achieve a luxurious look,
you may consider matching them or their characteristics, such as the brass hue. Remember that you can
improvise with such containers by using jars, vases, or trays that were made for other purposes. The
minimalistic approach will surely make your bathroom look luxurious on a budget.
Rethink your bathroom necessities and accessories
There are tried-and-true ways to make other necessities, such as towels, rugs, and shower curtains, complement
your new luxurious aesthetic. Pure white towels are by far the most extravagant-looking, and you may further
enhance their appearance by folding them using simple techniques. Choose bath mats that complement your
aesthetic while still being soft and made of high-quality materials. You may switch out your traditional shower
curtain for actual bedroom curtains if you place an inexpensive shower liner underneath. Additionally, you can
replace your old hooks with more interesting ones. Even your trashcan and toilet brush may look lavish if you
choose the appropriate container and look. The sky’s the limit with such items.
Bring the outside in
The bathroom is probably the last place you’d think of bringing the outside in. However, some plants flourish in the bathroom! It’s also one of the best shower remodel ideas for making your bathroom look even more
luxurious. Fresh-looking plants strategically arranged throughout your bathroom will add a little pop of
greenery and color. Furthermore, hanging plants can draw attention upward, making a small bathroom appear
larger. But what if you don’t have a green thumb or don’t want to devote the time and effort required to maintain
such plants? If so, you can purchase fake ones that have a similar effect.
Create a beautifully scented bathroom
Let’s face it: the bathroom isn’t typically the most aromatic place in the house. And masking odors with sprays
with a strong synthetic scent will simply worsen the problem. Candles are much better substitutes. They are
also a great way to make your bathroom look luxurious on a budget. Purchase candles that come in beautiful
containers into which you can place a tea light once the candle has burned out. If you’d rather not have
something burning in your bathroom that you have to keep an eye on, invest in some attractive diffusers to keep
your bathroom smelling fresh. When it comes to the scent of such products, choose ones that smell luxurious to
you and make you happy.
