Low Cost Upgrades To A Small Bathroom

We all want to upgrade our bathroom to make it look cleaner, beautiful and comfortable. But, Money is always a problem. So, To deal with this problem, I am going to share some ideas on low cost upgrades to a small bathroom. When I moved into my small rancher home that was built in the ’70s, I discovered an older outdated tiny bathroom. I quickly had to do some serious consideration about how I was going to make this work for my family and me. I was faced with a boring, outdated, and tiny bathroom and knew that it would be a mission of mine to make this work for us. Since I was on a tight budget, I knew I had to come up with ideas to update our bathroom at low cost. Well, with a little brainstorming and a lot of paint, I think I came up with some neat ideas to take our bathroom functional and cute. I decided that if I was going to save money, I would need to work with what I had and not to remodel at the time of moving in. Here is what I ultimately was able to achieve with my tiny bathroom for less than $300.

 I went with a color theme for the bathroom. You can use any colors you want but try to tie everything together. For me, it was a soft gray, pink, and cream color that I used as a theme, along with a tad bit of florals in that very same color scheme. So that you can see how far this bathroom has come, here is what it looked like when we first moved into the house. Tons of outdated wood, drab walls, and zero characters.

Upgrade Bathroom At Low Cost


I wasn’t deterred though, as I knew there were things, I could do to improve this little space. So, let’s talk about what I accomplished!


Things I Did To Improve My Bathroom

  • Kept the color theme that I mentioned above.
  • Painted our outdated trim and cabinetry white.
  • Then, I painted the walls and added a gray wallpapered accent wall to a very small section of the bathroom.

Doing all of this totally updated the space and saved me tons of money by not having to replace the items that were already there. Replacing the old hardware on the vanity with modern brushed silver pulls did a miracle upgrade. We were able to leave the flooring alone since the tile was in good shape, but I’m going to come back to this room later and paint the grout as I did in the kitchen and master bath. For all who have asked, that awesome rug was from Marshall’s, @marshalls We also gave the bathroom some privacy with a by hanging soft linen roman shade and replaced the towel rod with a sleek modern version. The towel ring was also replaced. One of my favorite updates was removing the builder-grade mirror and replacing it with an ornate silver mirror that I found at Homegoods, @homegoods.


I understand that taking on a bathroom upgrade, even if you have a small or large budget can be scary if you don’t do this every day.
