We think paint is by far the cheapest and easiest way to update any room – you can do it yourself in just a weekend and the results are fabulous. You could just freshen up your bathroom with a coat of white paint or you could be bold and try a new colour. For advice on how to paint a room head to our guide. 

We love plaster pinks at the moment, they are a nice grown-up take on millennial pink that everyone still seems to love. It’s also still quite neutral so is a nice backdrop for prints, house plants and patterned tiles. Our favourite dusty pink is Farrow and Balls Pink Ground.

2. Paint bathroom furniture too

And don’t just think about painting the walls, paint your furniture too! If you have a basin unit that’s looking a bit tired, give it a fresh coat of paint. It could be a great way to start a new colour scheme in your bathroom. You can paint your bath too – whether it’s the bath panel or your whole roll top bath.

If you are after a guide to how to paint furniture, we have a really easy to follow step by step and find the best paint for furniture in our guide too. 

3. Makeover a bathroom with wallpaper

How cool is this bathroom? We love wallpaper in a bathroom and it works even if you have a small bathroom too because it will blur the edges of the room. Don’t just wallpaper the walls either, create a really statement space by wallpapering the ceiling too.

You be aware that wallpaper works best in a bathroom that’s well ventilated, and you might want to seal your wallpaper to stop any moisture damage too. If you love the look of this wallpaper, check out Etsy, they have loads of budget-friendly options. 

4. Cover a tired floor with tile stickers

We have ranted on about tile stickers many a time, but they seriously are such a quick, cheap and easy way to cover up old bathroom floor tiles. You install them yourself and all the instructions come with the pack so you know exactly what you are doing. B&Q actually make a vinyl tile sticker that looks exactly like the floor tiles above and they are only £16.90 for a pack that covers 1.3m². Bargain.

Etsy also sell loads of tile stickers that would be great for updating splashbacks as well as flooring.

5. Get your bathroom decluttered!

Maybe all your bathroom need to feel new is a good declutter and the best way to do this is invest in practical but stylish storage. Ikea stock fab bathroom storage that’s designed for smaller spaces and is really affordable too. But you don’t need to buy pieces of furniture, even just picking out some small storage piece can make such a difference. We are so in love with the Kungsfors net bags! They look fab in any room but are ideal for storing toiletries you need to keep accessible.

6. Switch up your bathroom accessories

We LOVE these cow print towels, and guess where they are from? ASDA! Yep, they are super stylish and super cheap – prices start from just £4 and a massive bathsheet is only £9.

In fact George at Asda are smashing the affordable bathroom accessories right now, they have loads of cool towels and this textured bath mat looks way more expensive that just £9! Make sure you have a good browse over there for cheap ways to update your space. 

7. Hang up new prints and mirrors

Bathrooms do tend to be the smallest room in the house, so we are all about expanding the space and creating the illusion of a bigger room. Of course, the easiest way to do this is with mirrors. You might already have a mirror above your sink, but look to the other walls to see if hanging a large mirror would work to bounce more light around the room. 

Or if you don’t have room for a second mirror, switch out your current one for something larger. We love how this simple HUGE mirror works to stretch the space in this gorgeous, but diddy bathroom.

Our fave place to shop affordable mirrors is Argos – plus it’s great because you can click and collect on the same day so you don’t have to wait to start your bathroom update.

8. Add some more surface space with an Ikea stool

Yes, just a stool. You must have seen the Ikea Bekvam stool on Instagram? If you look closely, it’s always creeping somewhere in the corner of seemingly every Instagrammer’s room. It’s not surprising, really, as it’s a super versatile piece, looks stylish and is only 20 quid. You can use it as a stool, a step ladder or, as seen here, bathroom storage. It just adds a handy bit of extra surface space for storing toiletries or keeping folded towels. Plus you can soo easily paint it to match your room.
