Tips and Ideas For Bathroom Decorating a Budget

Contrary to what some people may believe, you don't have to spend hundreds of dollars to transform the appearance of your bathroom. As long as you are willing to invest some of your time and energy, you can successfully redecorate it with a fresh new look. Simple accessories and homemade furnishings will give the decor a unique element that works to bring everything together. In fact, when it's done right, most people won't even be able to tell your bathroom was done with such a minimal investment. If this is something you are interested in doing, keep reading and we'll reveal some essential tips and ideas for bathroom decorating on a budget.

New Towels

Okay, I'll admit that there's no easy way to get around buying new bathroom towels. It's a necessary expense that you are must cough up money for. If your current bathroom towels are faded, torn, discolored or simply look old, you should invest in new ones. However, you can still save some money by purchasing them from a place like Wal-Mart or Target instead of the expensive department stores at the mall. They are just as durable and look equally nice, but they also come with a lower price tag.

While you are shopping for new bathroom towels, keep your eyes peeled for matching hand towels as well. It's a common mistake for homeowners to purchase new large towels while forgetting about the smaller hand towels. As a result, they are left with mismatched towels in different colors and designs. The fact is that you never know when a manufacturer is going to discontinue a certain style or when the store will stop selling them, so go ahead and purchase the entire set at once.

Clean and Protect Against Mildew

Have you noticed mildew spots popping up in the shower or bathroom? This is a common problem that homeowners continuously battle with. Not only are mildew spots unattractive and "dirty," but they can also lead to respiratory problems. If you take the health of your family serious, then you'll want to eliminate any signs of mildew. To do this, spray down the problematic areas with a solution of diluted vinegar and allow it to sit for 2-3 minutes. Once the diluted vinegar has soaked into the walls, use a scrub brush to clean them. When you are through, rinse the walls with fresh water and you should then be left with a sparkling clean surface.

Inexpensive Bathroom Wall Decorations

The walls are one of the most overlooked placed in the bathroom when it comes to decorating. So, what are some items to use here? Instead of going with expensive paintings, you should consider hanging some photo collages of your family. Half a dozen cheap, dollar-store 6x9 picture frames is all it takes to create an elaborate collage with real sentimental meaning and value.
