9 Easy Ways To Update Your Bathroom on a Budget!

Hey beauties! Hope ya'll are having a great week! I can't believe Summer is wrapping up already! I'm so sad, because Summer is my FAVORITE but I'm also a bit excited because when the seasons change I get antsy and a bit motivated to tackle ALL the projects I've had on my to do list FOREVER! 

One of the things I've been wanting to do for a long time, is spruce up our downstairs powder room. I have to tell ya'll I h a t e the tile in here with a passion, but when we installed it a few years ago we had it leftover from another project, were on a budget and working with what we had. While I hope to change it sooner, rather than later, I'm learning to work with what I have and work around it. With other the other projects we have to tackle right now, this one is totally on the back burner and not a priority. However, that doesn't mean it still can't be pretty and full of things I love! 


So I hit up Wal-Mart in hopes of finding some new goodies to spruce up this space on a budget. I love Wal-Mart lately for their decor & prices! Everything is super trendy and affordable. It's a great place to shop if you're in the market for new decor but don't want to spend a ton of money! 


Today, I really wanted to share some ways you can update your bathroom on a budget and doing projects that don't take a ton of time. So today I'm going to share some tips & some ways you can make a space feel fresh and new again! 


Tip #1- Replace that ugly soap bottle with a pretty dispenser.



I used {this one} from Wal-Mart and absolutely LOVE it! It comes in a few different color options and it's one of the easiest ways you can make your bathroom feel "prettier".




Tip #2- New Towels.





This is something that always excites me, okay? Don't ask me why. I just really really like new towels. Usually white ones. But here I decided to go with a cute pattern. It's subtle. I like it! Wal-Mart has a GREAT selections of super inexpensive towels if you're searching! 


Nothing is worse to me than an old, tattered towel. It's such an easy fix! So I always keep some simple freshly laundered hand towels on hand in the bathroom, but I also always love a good print when needed! The gray and white is a simple contrast and I love the simple yet, fun pattern for an update! Opt for floral in the spring, and a pop of color in the Winter months to brighten your cloudy wet, and snowy days! :)


Tip #3- Add a new rug in a fun print or color.



I have been LOVING this coral color lately and when I saw this pretty rug I knew it would be perfect in our little corner powder bathroom! I love the round shape and the dainty crochet detailing. It's very "boho chic" and I'm here for it! A rug in a fun print or pattern is really cute too! 




Tip #4- Update your Wall Decor.





This piece I have hanging on the wall isn't for sale anymore, but I did find some cute signs on the Wal-Mart Site that would be ADORABLE in a bathroom! Like this one.  Wal-Mart has a huge selections of wall art and signs!




Tip #5- Curtains. 





If a space is feeling blah, or drab, adding curtains always helps. I like the look of sheer white curtains but a pattern can be fun too! especially if a room is especially "plain"- floral prints are also a great way to add dimension and personality to a room! 



Tip #6- Lighting.






Lighting can make or break a space for me and it's honestly the MOST important. Add a fun chandelier or a new vanity light! Don't be afraid to mix metals in this case! Lighting should be fun and show your personality and your homes style!


Tip #7.- Updated mirrors.



I always love using interesting or fun mirrors in my my home, especially in the bathroom. This one is great because of the wood tone. But I also like that it adds a little texture and visual interest. 




Tip #8- Update a Vanity by adding new hardware.




New hardware is probably the most inexpensive way to spruce up your space! You can often find knobs for under $10 and it's just a fun way to add personality so a space! I don't think anything in our home has the original hardware we bought with it. 



Tip #9- Sink Fixtures.

You don't have to buy new sink fixtures to get yours to feel new again! I like using some spray paint to update hardware and fixtures when I want a new look but don't want to spend a ton of money. This is a super simple project that doesn't take a ton of time or cost a lot of money! 


So there you have it friends! 9 ways you can easily update your bathroom on a budget! I hope this post helps you a bit and reminds you to love the home you HAVE! It doesn't take a ton of time or cost a ton of money to create pretty spaces that make you smile. Sometimes it just takes a little creativity to get the ball rolling! I'm linking up some of my favorite recent Wal-Mart finds for you all to take a peek at!
