You’ve found your dream home and it’s everything you could hope for. Still, you want to make a few small tweaks to stamp your style on it. Your attention turns to the bathroom, but you don’t want to make any serious changes. Can you upgrade your bathroom without making big renovations or remodels?
Yes - and it’s rather easy too. Here are four very cheap bathroom upgrades that’ll improve this space without needing loads of work:
Fix up the grouting
The grout between tiles can make a bathroom look pretty old and worn. White grout gets dirty very quickly, so consider cleaning this for a start. Already, you notice a difference and the whole room seems fresher.
But, go one step further and use a grout colorant to change the grout color to something else. This makes maintenance easier but it also alters the interior design and makes your bathroom look much nicer.
Add hanging storage
Bathrooms don’t come with lots of storage space outside of vanity cabinets. This means the bath or shower is littered with shampoo bottles and all sorts of other stuff. Adding in some hanging storage will negate this, cleaning up your bathroom and improving its overall look.
It’s really easy to do this - just bang a nail into the wall or find a hook you can stick to tiles. From here, get baskets or shower caddies and you have more storage around the room. You can even hang plants in baskets to further improve the interior appeal!

Repaint your bathroom
Sometimes, the easiest way to upgrade a room is by repainting it. This is a low-cost task that shouldn’t take long in a bathroom because some of the walls will be covered in tiles. Consider switching things up and picking one of the best bathroom paint colors for this space.
If your bathroom is originally white, think about moving to a blueish-gray or subtle aloe green. A paint change immediately alters your bathroom’s appearance and will be a huge upgrade.
Swap out some bathroom fittings
Of all the ideas, this one requires a bit more work. Here, you take some of the bathroom fittings - like faucets or shower heads - and replace them with something new.
It sounds harder than it is - most replacements can be done within half an hour at most. This is a chance to upgrade the fittings to modern designs, which will enhance the look and feel of your bathroom. It also helps you get rid of any moldy or rusty fittings, so you can start afresh.
As an extra bonus, a new shower head fitting could improve water pressure and bring more functionality to your bathroom!
In conclusion, there are loads of ways to upgrade your bathroom without undergoing extensive renovation work. The ideas above can all be completed within a day, and you won’t need to knock walls down or remove massive parts of your bathroom. It just goes to show how small changes can have a very big difference in a room’s interior design.
