Bathroom Updates That Won’t Break the Bank


A Fresh Coat of Paint

Paint may be the cheapest way to make over your bathroom in one weekend, especially if your walls are primarily tiled and you have a small area to roll or brush. Bathrooms also are great places to take a chance on bold colors that you might not be willing to use in main living spaces: In small doses, a bright emerald, rich purple, deep gray, or jewel-toned red can add interest without feeling overwhelming. You can also add wide horizontal stripes, a modern geometric stencil pattern, or a vibrant accent wall for an added pop.
