Budget-Friendly Bathroom Updates

Updating your tired old bathroom and giving it a new lease of life really doesn’t have to mean a costly renovation. There are a number of budget-friendly updates that can and do leave your bathroom looking as good as new, and possibly even like a completely different space.

Here are some of the most frugal bathroom updates for you to try:

Update the Fixtures

A very frugal way to give your bathroom a new lease of life is by changing the fixtures like the faucets, cabinet handles and shower head. You can buy some really pretty fixtures, which have a more ‘designer’ look than standard, and they really do make your bathroom look more expensive, more modern and a lot fresher.

Update the Lighting

If your bathroom’s lighting fixture is old and tired, just replacing it with one of the many low-cost chandeliers you can purchase now will make a big difference. Replacing fluorescent lighting or old bulbs that give the room an unpleasant yellow glow, will also help to improve the look and feel of your bathroom

Create Your Own Vanity

If your vanity is in need of being replaced, but you don’t have the money to buy an impressively modern new one, why not turn an existing piece of furniture that you no longer need into one. You might need the help of a plumber to install it, but once that’s done, you’ll have a unique piece. If you don’t have any unwanted furniture, sites like Craigslist are eBay are a great place to source them on a budget.


If you don’t want to spend any money at all, the simple act of decluttering your bathroom can work wonders. Once you’ve thrown out all those old shampoo bottles, hidden your lotions and potions away in cabinets and on shelves, and given the room a good clean, it will look just like new.

Don’t Underestimate Accents

Sometimes, it’s the little things that make all the difference, and this is especially true in the bathroom, where a new set of colorful towels, a pretty soap dish and a handful of feature tiles can make your bathroom look like it’s been interior designed by a professional.

Give Your Tiles Some Attention

If you can stretch to buying new tiles and hiring a tiler, tiling the bathroom is probably the best way to update it to your style. If you can’t do that, then respraying your tiles a new color, or even just redoing the grout, will give the place a big lift.

A New Shower Curtain

Shower curtains cost very little, but replacing them can work wonders because, as you will probably know, they get dirty pretty quickly, and because they take up a fair amount of space in the bedroom, replacing them with a new one, with a different design can be quite transformative.

Frame Your Mirror

Adding an elegant frame to your mirror will make it look more expensive and as a result, elevate the res of the bathroom too.

Even just doing one of these things will make a major difference to the appearance of your bathroom, do them all and your bathroom will look brand new without you breaking the budget!

DIY Table Revamp - Guest Post

Hi all! I'm Tiffany from This Motherhood is Brought to You by Xanax and I am so excited to be a part of the Guest Post Swap and to be Amanda's swap partner! I love love love her idea on how to make indoor snowballs with egg cartons. I am definitely going to have to try that with my kiddos since my smallest one has decided that it has to snow for Christmas. Poor baby doesn't know snow is hard to come by in Alabama :( For my guest post I wanted to share a little DIY with you guys that involves duct tape! A few months ago my daughter's little chair that goes with her table she sits at every day tore and she made it worse by pulling all of the stuffing out of the seat! What started out as a quick fix turned into a great idea. She loved her seat so much that she has now decided that her table has look cool too so being the smarty pants that she is, she tore her table!


While shifting to your dream house, you may face a mountain of pre-move work, including downsizing, packing, hiring moving trucks, and other help. When you already have a list full of tasks, home improvements for the new house might be the last thing. However, handling the new house renovation before moving in is convenient for you in many ways. Planning home improvement is exciting and stressful both. If you are moving to a house that is not entirely ready, you have massive things to do. To make things smooth, create a list based on priorities. If you are shifting to a freshly build house, you do not need to make a lot of renovation, though you can add a little personal touch to it. When you make house changes before moving in, you can save your floor and furniture from paint spills. You will have an open space to plan the house interior. You can protect yourself and your family from hazardous odors and dust. There are several home improvements like removing popcorn ceil
