Gearing up for a bathroom makeover? Since many of us are spending more time at home, we love the idea of turning our bathrooms into a spa-like space. A place where we can retreat, relax, and wind down. No matter the size, no matter the budget, it can easily be done. How? By getting into the DIY spirit. Below, we're highlighting our favorite products we discovered at Walmart to help you get started on your bathroom redesign.

Easiest way to give your bathroom a new look in (almost) an instant? Add a fresh coat of paint. This cream hue called Swiss Coffee offers just the right hint of color while keeping things clean and bright.

If you want to make your space feel cool and calming, may we introduce you to this gorgeous color called Platinum Ring. A touch of gray, a hint of blue — it's perfect.

If you decide to use wallpaper, this design will put you in a tropical mood. The flowers, palm fronds, and banana leaves makes us feel like we're on an island oasis. One can dream, right?

We are huge fans of the Flower Home line! We can absolutely see this charming wallpaper on display in a powder room or half-bath. You might want to pair it with ...

Ever see something and you can't stop thinking about it? This sink does it for us. This blue color paired with the brushed brass hardware is just so lovely. Imagine this paired with the Flower Home Gingko Blue wallpaper. If you love this look but want something neutral, the sink also comes in Rustic Gray or White Wood Grain.

While this white vanity will work against any background, we love the idea of pairing it with the Swiss Coffee paint color for an ultra-relaxing spa look. A neutral palate is a Zen palate. Note that a faucet is not included, but we've got a perfect pairing for you ...

Not only is this faucet sleek in design, it's also a WaterSense labeled faucet, which means that it uses less water without sacrificing performance. Now that's something we can get behind. Also comes in Chrome and Matte Black (but we recommend the Brushed Nickel with the Design Element sink vanity).

A matte look for a modern bathroom. If you're adding this faucet to your sink, pair it with the Amerock Glacio Cabinet Pulls (featured below) for a cohesive look.

Want to makeover your current cabinets? A quick DIY you can do is to change out the hardware. We love the combo of these clear pulls with several choices of metals, depending on your style, from black bronze to champagne to nickel.

If you want your spa bathroom to feel elegant in it's simplicity, may we suggest that you include these gorgeous gold accessories. Included are robe hooks, a toilet tissue holder, a towel holder, and a towel rack. As long as you have a screwdriver, these are so easy to add.

It features an elongated design and is high-efficiency, but let us not forget that it's so pretty. Is that weird to say about a toilet? We stand by it.

If your bathroom is on the smaller side and the elongated design of the above Woodbridge toilet doesn't quite fit the space, consider this standard style.

We highly recommend adding a bidet to your bathroom. Trust us, you'll find yourself saying over and over, "That was a really great purchase." Suddenly toilet paper will become less important. What we like about this is that you can add it to your existing toilet for an easy upgrade.

If you don't like your bathroom floor anymore, consider laying down vinyl planks that look like wood. For a spa vibe, we recommend choosing the Aged Driftwood (seen here), Dunes, or Whitewash.

Wouldn't these peel and stick floor tiles (hello, easy!) look so beautiful with the white vanity sink? Keep things simple on the wall by pairing with the Swiss Coffee paint.

Nothing says "spa" quite like bamboo. This shelving unit is ideal for when you need some extra storage space, and works so well in a smaller bathroom. Use it to display ceramic containers, a candle, or some pretty towels.

Have we mentioned yet that we love the use of shelves as a way to create more storage space in the bathroom (or really, any room of the house.) This design features closed cabinets plus open shelves, so you can decide where to place your nice-to-haves and your need-to-haves.

You know what they say in the DIY world: You're only as good as your tools. For a successful renovation or refresh, arm yourself properly before you get started. A high-quality hammer is a must.

If you're adding paint, of course you'll need these.

And, don't forget your drill!

So, now that you see that a DIY bathroom makeover is totally doable, what are you waiting for? There's no time like the present to get started your journey to creating a relaxing new space. With the help of Walmart, you'll do wonders.
