Easy ways to update your bathroom for under $1000

Learn these simple ways to freshen up your space while staying under budget.

Renovations are expensive and can be interruptive, especially when working on bathrooms. But they don't have to be. If your bathroom is in need of an update but budget is holding you back, Wesley Sinclair, Brand Specialist of Highgrove Bathrooms provides some simple solutions that will instantly refresh your bathroom and won't break your bank. 

Round mirrors

While square mirrors may be functional, they may not be adding to your space. Wesley states that choosing a round mirror, and more recently - oblong mirrors - conveys sophistication over modernness.

"It softens the overall look of your bathroom with its curved edges and is a simple way to create some depth," he explains. For an added touch of luxury, Wesley recommends installing LED integrated mirrors to  significantly brighten up the bathroom and will create the illusion of more space. 

Themed fixtures

Wesley reveals that installing fixtures with a consistent theme is a budget-friendly way to bring all the elements together. As he explains, "Upgrading the tapware and drawer handles is an easy way to make your vanity pop and give it a fresh new look, especially if you can get your hands on a matching shower head or rail," says Wesley.

He also suggests making eye-catching, yet elegant choices. "Brushed brass or matching matte black styles embody the modern elegance that withstands the test of time, so your bathroom will have a brand new but classic and luxurious look," says Wesley. 

Go green

Most notice greenery in living rooms and bedrooms, but putting a bit of life back into your bathroom is a cool, elegant way to freshen up your space. Plus, it's good for you! 

As Wesley explains, "Plants are a great way to liven up your bathroom without having to splurge too much; it can also improve and purify the air quality as well as increase oxygen. For a splash of colour, add some fresh flowers by the mirror or maybe pop some succulents by your window to ensure they have plenty of sunlight."

Elevate with colour

If your bathroom is feeling a bit dull, liven it up by adding a pop of colour. "Colours are the key to elevating the ambience of your bathroom," Wesley tells. "Give the space some personality and add some vibrancy through your accessories such as your towels, rugs, soap dispenser or toothbrush holder. While cost-effective and easy to do, you’ll be able to switch up the colour palette of your interior as the seasons change for a brand new look and feel every couple months."
