The first thing you could do related to make your bathroom over cheaply is by adding color creatively. Paint your walls if you can afford it. If not, try scrubbing the walls of your bathroom. No kidding, it will surprise you how much brighter the paint on your walls will look.  A new coat of paint is one of the most basic and inexpensive ways you can change the appearance of your bathroom, no matter what the size. Painting your bathroom is something you can do even if you have no experience, and light colors give the impression of more space. However, don’t stop there. Once your top coat of paint has dried, add decorative stencils to liven up the room. For example, add stencils of cheerful objects that you’ll like seeing, such as sailboats, sunflowers, bows, seashells or country hearts. If painting your wall is extremely hard for you, you can try to watch for sales on “borders” and purchase enough to go around the top of your walls next to the ceiling. It will change people’s focus in your bathroom.

The next tip to give your bathroom a different focus, feel and look, you can try making a false window. Find an old window with panes. Either paint the panes with outdoor scenes or fit pictures in the panes. Hang on the wall and put a curtain on it. This can cover a blemish in your bathroom wall and it can divert attention away from other flaws in your bathroom.

The other way to change the look of your bathroom is by paying attention on your bathroom sink or vanity. Some sinks are stand alone on a column or attached directly to the wall. To give your sink a pick-me-up, take cloth and attach it to the bottom of the sink. Measure it long enough to reach to the floor. This will cover the pipes and/or column that you are tired of looking at. You can attach the cloth by using Velcro. Glue Velcro to the bottom of the sink and attach Velcro to the cloth. The sink curtain is easy to attach and easy to wash. Co-ordinate the colors of this sink cover to new rugs and you have definitely given your bathroom a facelift.

While vanities can be expensive, you can use an old chest of drawers that you had and turn it into your bathroom vanity. Simply take the drawers out of dresser and measure the bottom side of the sink. Cut hole carefully. Most sinks have a “lip” on them and when you set the sink in the hole, it should fit snuggly.  You will probably not be able to use the first drawer or two, as this is where the pipes will be. But the bottom drawers should be functional. You can paint the dresser any color you want and change the color anytime you want. You will want to caulk where the sink meets the dresser top. And you will want to put a few coats of something to waterproof the dresser top.

This not only gives your bathroom a great makeover, it also is a conversation maker for years to come. These are excellent tips for inexpensive bathroom makeovers. You don’t have to spend a lot to give your bathroom a fresh new look.
