4 Updates You Can Make To Your Bathroom Without Going Broke

Installing the latest trends in a tired bathroom can be an exhilarating experience for a homeowner but it can quickly become expensive. If you’re looking for ways to create an impact on a budget, small changes and swaps let you work with the space you have while still making your bathroom feel trendy and fresh.

Here are some affordable bathroom update ideas that reflect today’s trends.

  1. Focal points for small spaces — A major trend of 2019 calls for using statement pieces in small spaces. Changing the décor of your bathroom is an easy and budget-friendly option that will make a big impression in such limited square footage. Artwork and photography are statements that provide a focal point while adding sophistication and a personal touch. If a painting overpowers your compact space, try incorporating large-scale wallpaper to make a similar artistic statement.
  2. Swap mirror shapes — Swap out your round mirror for the next evolution of reflective surface — a rounded rectangle. In a compact size, this unusual shape can work well for your vanity and offers way more design style than a simple round mirror. Check out our transitional and modern mirrors for ideas for your next bathroom remodel.
  3. Matte black accents — Who said affordable modern bathroom ideas have to be ho-hum? Go bold with matte black. This popular trend can be utilized in a variety of ways and price points. You can exchange your old vanity, light fixtures, faucets or shelving for new, dark-toned ones. Going with black in a bathroom creates a sleek, sophisticated look against a light wall and works well in a modern or traditional setting.

Add drama to your powder room by exploring our or integrate dark stackable shelves as an inexpensive storage alternative. If you’re hesitant to use black as a bathroom accent, try experimenting with gray. This hot hue can serve equally well as a fresh backdrop for existing elements or as new cabinetry. By the way, painting cabinets can be one of the cheapest ways to update your bath space.

  1. Industrial metals — Incorporating metals like brass and polished nickel can be another low-cost option you can use to modernize a bathroom. Simply swapping your drawer pulls or knobs with these metals of 2019 can create a unique, high-end look. Polished nickel has a warmer tone than chrome, while brass is a bolder, and increasingly popular, choice. Another good place for metal to shine is as edging for a shower enclosure, where it provides an industrial flair. We offer a wide selection of bathroom accessories, including hardware in polished nickel and two finishes of brass.
