Revamping your bathroom may seem like a costly undertaking. But by planning ahead and getting a little creative, you can pull off a remodel that won't break the bank. From pretty powder rooms to modern master baths, these 12 beautiful makeovers prove you don't need a big budget to execute a high-style transformation.
1. Play up contrasts.
You don't have to spend a ton to transform a space. A fresh coat of jet black paint — such as Downing Street by Valspar — creates eye-catching contrasts between the walls and existing tile in this bathroom makeover by Kimberly over at Swoon Worthy. The wood floor laminate and a few potted plants infuse the room with a warm organic feel.
2. Even starting from scratch can be done with a budget.
We get it, the idea of a gut job is daunting. But sometimes starting from scratch is the right move. Mandi from Vintage Revivals completed this bathroom redux for less than $1,000! Instead of trying to find items to fit into an existing setup, you can be in control of the layout and the materials.
3. Instead of the whole room, focus on a few pieces.
4. Opt for a statement-making patterned tile.
5. Mix high and low pieces.
In this master bathroom transformation, Elsie Larson from A Beautiful Mess splurged on these stunning sconces above the vanity, but saved by DIYing her ceiling fixture. She purchased a decorative ceiling medallion on Amazon and paired it with a $7 LED light (in lieu of a chandelier) to cut costs. Genius!
6. Swap out the shower curtain.
7. Maximize space with a sliding door instead of a swing door.
8. Prioritize storage.
Jenny from Little Green Notebook showed this loo some major love. Instead of installing pricey built-ins, she opted for a blue vanity with plenty of storage that looks super chic and helps to keep clutter at bay.
