Redecorating your bathroom doesn’t have to be as complicated as an episode of  Grand Designs. So get ready to DIY your bathroom from tired to terrific in just a few hours.

If you have a small bathroom, you may feel like the walls are enclosing in on you, leading to a lack of inspiration about what to do in such a small space. However, small bathrooms can be the coziest and most calming rooms to unwind.

Here are our top suggestions for small bathroom ideas on a budget.

4 Bathroom Ideas on a Budget

1) Add a Spa-like Feel with Essential Oils

It is easy to focus on the visuals and practicality when considering how to redecorate a bathroom on a budget. However, it’s worth pampering all your senses, and using aromatherapy oils is a great way to instantly create a relaxing haven in your bathroom.

Not only can you use certain smells to signal your brain that it is time to decompress, but you can also switch up the scents depending on your mood for reducing stress, energizing, or maybe playing up to the nostalgic smells of a festive season.

Lavender essential oil is excellent for soothing and relaxing your mind. Add it to a diffuser or oil burner. Or, simply drop a few drops of the oil on a paper towel and place them on your bathroom radiator for 30 minutes. Soon your bathroom will feel like a home spa!

2) Switch to Reusable Toiletry Bottles

If you have ever flicked through an interior design magazine, you may have noticed that you will never see branded bottles on show in any bathroom. Swipe this idea and switch out your liquid soap, shampoo, and conditioner bottles into aesthetically pleasing reusable bottles that match the theme of your small bathroom.

Uniform toiletries can help you achieve a polished bathroom without breaking the bank. You may even be able to save money in the long run by switching to buying your products in bulk or refilling your containers in a zero-waste shop rather than buying individual bottles.

3) Swap Out Tired Towels

To achieve that luxury hotel bathroom feels you have always dreamt of, consider if you need to swap out your towels.

No one likes the feel of an old crusty towel when they are leaving a relaxing shower, and switching to new soft towels that feel like clouds on your skin is an easy way to elevate your bathroom decor.

4) Declutter Your Space

After all this talk of what to add to your small bathroom to improve its appearance, we can’t fail to mention that you should consider doing a declutter.

You may choose to take an entire Saturday morning to follow the KonMari method of decluttering, where you pull everything out of its place and then evaluate each item individually. Or you may simply go-round with a bag cleaning up the empty bottles and mess. However hard you decide to tackle your declutter, reducing the number of items in your bathroom is essential for small bathrooms with less storage space.
