How to upgrade your bathroom on a budget

Whether you’re looking to update your home for your own enjoyment or you’re prepping it for sale this year, upgrading your bathroom is a great way to add equity to your home! Take a look at the samples below for tips on how to upgrade your entire bathroom for under $500!

Paint goes a long way and it is an affordable way to update the entire feel of your bathroom. In the green bathroom below, we decided to keep the trendy green color on the walls, but update the fixtures and repaint some of the trim that had been red! We painted the towel hanger and toilet paper hanger trim black (as seen below). If you really wanted to finish the look, paint the vanity to match, update the lighting fixture, and add a modern round mirror (see photo 3 below).

Adding a new mirror is a fun way to add a hip, modern twist to your bathroom. Check out the after photo of another one of our bathrooms we updated! The round mirror completely transforms the space!

There you have it! Throw a fresh coat of paint on the walls, update the hardware and lighting fixtures, and add a fun new mirror to turn your outdated bathroom into a fresh, modern one that you and potential homebuyers will love for years to come! And the best part- it all cost less than $500!
