Budget-Friendly Design Ideas for Your Luxury Bathroom Renovation

Bathroom renovation is not something you do every day. You want your upgrades to provide comfort and luxury for years to come – without draining your bank account. Use the following bathroom design ideas to get a good mix of luxury and economy for your next remodel.

Change Your Faucet Fixtures

One of the most affordable things you can do to make the biggest impact is changing your faucets. You might not realize it, but these go a long way in the look and feel of your bathroom. You can do something as simple as going for a new finish, such as stainless steel or brass, or completely changing the style. There are numerous types of faucets available, from single-hole to wall mount. You might even opt for a hands-free faucet for a futuristic look.

Update Your Showerhead

The days of your leaky, low-pressure showerhead are over. Instead, upgrade to a modern piece of equipment that can provide multi-function capabilities for a more relaxing shower. You might even consider a showerhead with a flexible hose to allow you to take complete control over the stream of water. But why stop there? Add on some body sprays or a rainfall showerhead for a spa-like feel in the comfort of your own home.

Rethink Your Tile

Tile plays a big part in the aesthetics of a bathroom, so choose wisely. You'll want to find a style that's timeless but still express your personality in some way. Currently, white or black subway tiles are a huge bathroom trend, as they offer a clean and sterile surface that you can easily customize with other accessories. However, don't be afraid to add a pop of color for a little more excitement.

Paint Your Cabinets

Don't have the money for all new bathroom cabinetry? No worries, as all you can just repaint them to completely revitalize the space. If your cabinets were already painted, all you'll have to do is clean and prime the surface before adding on a new coat. If they are wooden, you might have to sand them down before painting for the best results. Choose a neutral color for more flexible styling, or go bright and bold to make a statement. For more ideas, check out Annie Sloan’s chalk paint colors for inspiration.

Update Your Hardware

Are the handles on the bathroom drawers broken? Does the towel hook sag? Upgrade these elements to turn even the shabbiest bathroom into one that shines. Some of the things you might consider swapping out for more modern counterparts include toilet paper holders, shower rods, sink knobs, and more. Anthropologie has a great selection of bathroom accessories including toilet paper holders, towel bars, cabinetry hardware.

Decorative Storage

Instead of just throwing your towels in a corner or having your toiletries spread across the sink, get creative with your storage. Make use of baskets and bins, utilize cabinet space, or even add some shelves so you'll have room for all your possessions without making the space feel cluttered.
