Another great place to look for upcycled bathroom accessories is Etsy. What can you find there? You’re only limited by your imagination. For instance, one Etsy artist takes brightly colored vintage Tupperware and turns them into cool hanging lamps. These could be fun and funky hanging in a bathroom! Another Etsy artist creates awesome, upcycled metal shelving that looks like a check mark. These could be fun for stacking folded towels. You can easily find upcycled bathroom accessories on Etsy by searching with keywords like “bathroom” or “upcycled.”

Determine how much you can afford to spend on your remodel to determine the extent of the changes you can make. If your budget is on the low end (i.e. $1,000 or less), you’ll want to stick to cosmetic changes, such as new fixtures or a new sink, and new paint. If you have more to spend, you can focus on larger changes, such as adding tile, a bigger shower, or a window. Again, it all depends on your budget.

Right now, one of the biggest trends in bathrooms is also one that budget DIYers can pull off with style. The trend is using old dressers as sink pedestals. You simply cut out the top of the dresser to accommodate a sink insert, cut into or remove interior drawers as necessary, and cut holes in the back for plumbing. These “dresser sinks” can sell for thousands of dollars in retail stores, but you can easily make your own with a budget dresser, some patience, and the right tools.

By using a modest color palette with just a pop of color from the red chair, this bathroom demonstrates simple elegance in a small area.

For a budget bathroom update, Patti Wagner and her husband replaced the damaged green floor tiles with inexpensive hexagon-shaped white tiles in their Minneapolis home. “The white floor really makes the room look bigger,” says Wagner, a senior product designer for Target. They also maximized the small space by keeping the existing pedestal sink and large medicine cabinet. Towel hooks also are great for small bathrooms, because they don’t take up much space and you can place them anywhere, she says.

For less than $500, HGTV fan nesting completely changed the look of this bathroom. Beadboard wainscoting, a crisp, white tile countertop and several gallons of paint are to thank for the makeover. In her own words, when you’re on a budget, “paint is your friend.”

With a DIY mind-set, the owners of this small master bathroom created a personal sanctuary on a budget. This Asian butcher table, found at an antiques shop, was repurposed for the vanity.

Inexpensive shelves from a home center transform the wall above the toilet to provide a storage spot for bathroom essentials. Throughout the bathroom, a simple light-and-dark scheme helps the space appear larger, and the same scheme was applied to the vignette above the toilet. The dark tones on the shelves, picture frames, and art contrast with the white towels, photo mats, and bud vase.

Make a tile “area rug.” If you’re already switching out the tile on your floor, adding this decor detail doesn’t cost you any extra — but it can go a long way toward bringing you the stylish bathroom you want. Although this is a large bathroom by Atlanta designer and builder Nancy Keenan, the technique she used can add visual interest in a smaller space as well.

Another thing to consider is the moisture. Since mold and mildew develop easily in a bathroom, and humidity and temperature change often, it’s a good idea to invest in high quality paint with a satin finish. You may also want to go over the ceiling with a special bathroom paint that helps resist the growth of mold.

Want another idea? Find three cool, vintage tin cans. Drill the tin cans side by side into a 2 foot piece of old plank. Then, drill the plank onto your bathroom wall (pictured below from laissezfaire). You now have a super cool way to store bathroom necessities like toothbrushes, toothpaste, combs and brushes, and Q-tips. You can even keep fresh flowers in one of the cans!

I’ve recently thought about redoing my own bathroom. My house was built in 1900 and I have one very small bathroom. Thanks to an unfortunate paint color choice, the walls look as if they were hosed down with Pepto Bismal. In other words, it really needs some work and repainting is number one on my list.

A great way to draw attention away from the small size of your bathroom is to create a focal point or a place in the bath that immediately draws your attention. It could be a window, like in the bathroom pictured, or it could be a unique vanity or other fixture.

When decorating, it is hard to use restraint. (I often struggle with it myself.) The more-is-better philosophy just feels so right, but in this mini bathroom, it would feel so wrong. The decor in this bath comes from the strong design and color, and adding much else would make this bathroom feel overdone. Often in small spaces, less really is more.

When designing or decorating your small bath, place storage needs at the top of your list. In a half bath or guest bathroom, you may not need much. The rule of thumb for bathroom storage is that the more you use it, the more storage it will need.
