10 Budget Friendly Ways To Transform Your Bathroom

Adding Wall Panels

These can fit perfectly over pre-existing tiles and do not require any grout. With a 30 year warranty, shop our panel kits, including tile effect panels, and find your nearest retailer.

New Towel Rack 

Upgrading your towel rack in your bathroom doesn’t need to be expensive. At a low cost, you can reuse old items such as a wine bottle holder or an old coat hook. Provided there is airflow, to avoid damp and mouldy towels, anything with a hook will be perfect! 

Decorative Window

Window stickers are a great way to upgrade your frosted window without buying a whole new panel. Available to buy from Amazon for under £10, add a cool design for a simple and elegant upgrade. 

Transform Your Tiles

There are a few things to do to transform your tiles. It’s always good to start by removing any grime and dirt from the tiles themselves and the grout. Adding paint to tiles is also a good way to add a fresh colour to your bathroom or you could add tile stickers. Transport your plain tiles into ones with vintage and cool designs. 

Adding Plants

Adding plants, real or fake, can add some more colour to your bathroom. Because a bathroom can be quite a damp environment, a large amount of plants can thrive. Great options for bathroom plants include Bird’s Nest Fern, Tillandsia and Staghorn Fern. 

Upcycle Old Cabinets and Cupboards

If you are looking to get new cabinets in your bathroom, upcycle vintage or old ones. These can be found on sites such as Gumtree or Facebook Marketplace. Also, adding a wood preserver will help to protect and prevent any damp, rot or decay on your cabinets or cupboards. 


If your bathroom has a large amount of products on the counter top, in cupboards or drawers, try to declutter. Clearing out some of the older products allows your bathroom to breathe and for nice features to be seen more.

A Fresh Coat of Paint 

A fresh coat of paint can do wonders. Whether you go for a neutral colour or a bright one, a fresh coat of paint can make any room look new and clean. When painting a bathroom, choose a bathroom specific paint. This can help to avoid any mould and mildew. 

Upgrade Your Mirror

A usual centre piece of any bathroom is the mirror. Whether you use a vintage or simple one, a mirror can help to transform a bathroom. Upgrading to a bigger mirror can make your bathroom look bigger and brighter. 

Switch Up Your Shower Curtain 

Changing out your shower curtain is a great way to add colour to your bathroom. With so many different colours and patterns to choose from, a new shower curtain can add a small transformation.
