How To Improve Your Bathroom On A Budget

The bathroom is the most personal room in the house, so it’s no surprise that people are willing to spend a lot of time and money on making it beautiful. But, if you’ve never remodeled your bathroom before—and particularly if you’re working on a budget—it can be daunting to think about taking on all those projects at once. Fortunately, there are plenty of small changes you can make that will go a long way toward improving your space without breaking the bank. In this post I’ll share some simple tips for upgrading your bathroom with small (but impactful!) improvements: from installing shower panels to adding floating shelves and more!

  • Install a Shower Panel
  • A shower panel is an acrylic enclosure that surrounds your shower and makes it more private. The benefits of installing a panel include:
  • Privacy – Because the enclosure is clear, you don’t have to worry about anyone peeking in on you while you’re showering.
  • Soundproofing – Soundproofing can be done on either side of the panel, which means that noise from outside won’t carry into your stall (or vice versa). This will help keep things quiet during those times when people need some peace and quiet!

Upgrade Your Lighting

If you have a bathroom that’s dimly lit, you’ll want to upgrade your lighting. A dimmer switch will allow you to easily adjust the brightness of your lights without having to reach over and flip up or down a switch on the wall.

Put in Some Floating Shelves

Floating shelves are a great way to add storage and style to your bathroom. They’re easy to install, and you can find floating shelves at any home improvement store.

Create a Focal Point in the Room

When it comes to your bathroom, the focal point is the most important part of the room. This can be anything from a prominent artwork on the wall to a large mirror that reflects light into your eyes. The purpose of this is to make sure that when people enter your bathroom and look at themselves in the mirror, they are able to see themselves in an appealing way—and then get excited about their appearance!

Add a Statement Mirror

  • A mirror can be used to create a larger feel, reflecting light and creating a focal point.
  • You can use mirrors to reflect the view outside your bathroom.

If you’re looking for ways to improve your bathroom on a budget, consider these easy solutions:

  • Install new tiles. New tile can be expensive—but it’s worth it if you’re going to upgrade anyway. It’s also time-consuming and takes some skills (and tools) to install yourself, so don’t try unless you have experience with this type of project!
  • Add lighting fixtures near the mirror so that there are no shadows when applying makeup or shaving in front of it; this will keep things looking bright and clean-cut instead of dull or dark!  This is especially true if someone else lives in the house with young children who might otherwise trip over something while playing outside during playtime.”


The most important thing to remember about improving your bathroom on a budget is that you don’t have to spend a lot of money. You can take advantage of free or cheap DIY projects, like adding floating shelves or installing a shower panel, which will give your bathroom an instant facelift. And when it comes down to it, you should always prioritize what you want from each room in the house over how much you spend on it. That way, you can get great results without spending too much time or money!
