We're sharing our most favorite DIYs to refresh and update your bathroom space without embarking on a major renovation.

We're currently renovating our late-80's west coast style home,  and I have been itching to get started with a bathroom refresh in our master bath!  While we're not quite ready for the full renovation quite yet, I have been planning some styling updates to warm up the space.


Create a luxurious bathroom on a budget without having to call a contractor. Here's How:

 1. Paint

A new coat of paint can do wonders to a space! It is the quickest way to transform a bathroom on a budget. Don't forget to use a primer and think of color theory when picking our out your color palette - what kind of emotions does this color evoke in you?


2. Declutter and Get Organized

Take some time to declutter and organize your bathroom! Even if its fairly clean and organized, chances are you've got a few things that could be rearranged, or purged completely!

3. New Plants 

Add a new plant to your decor! New plants are a fantastic inexpensive decor idea. Small bathroom? Consider adding a hanging plant with a gorgeous macrame pot hanger.

4. New Shelving

Mount some new shelves on the wall. Open wood shelving is still a bathroom trend for 2023 and doesn't seem to show any signs go anywhere anytime soon. Switch out seasonal decor to refresh the space!

5. Repurpose

Repurpose an old vanity or mirror. Find an inexpensive old vanity or dresser on marketplace. Refinish the piece to your design taste! 

6. New Linens

 Change out your bathroom linens. Just like paint, new bathroom linens can really give your bathroom a facelift! If you usually go with white or taupe why not try a pop of color?! We're loving emerald green and waffle towels are definitely still trending for 2023.

7. Bathroom Accessories

The easiest way to make your bathroom feel luxurious! Just like linens and paint, new bathroom accessories can really elevate your bathroom. Look for vintage or handcrafted pieces and find something unique for your space.
