3 Ways To Update Your Bathroom on a Budget

3 Ways To Update Your Bathroom On A Budget

Depending on your morning routine and self-care regimen, you can spend anywhere from 15 minutes to an hour in the bathroom each day. Keeping your bathroom updated and fresh is an obvious priority with such a time investment in one place. However, your attention to detail doesn’t have to break the bank. Modernize your bathroom on a budget with three easy fixes.

Keep Clutter to a Minimum

Be careful with decor. While you do want a bathroom that extends the style of your home and smells nice with candles, still be cautious not to overdo it with items crowding the counters. If the bathroom is used for getting ready, prepare a space underneath the sinks or in the closet for styling items used in morning routines.

A streamlined, clutter-free space is ideal for clearing your thoughts and unwinding from the day. Taking a bath in a tub filled with shampoos, body washes, lotions, and scrubs is not ideal. Take the time to organize your items and declutter the spaces in your bathroom to provide clarity and serenity each time you enter the room.

Update Lighting and Mirrors

Lighting and mirrors prepare you for the way you face the day or get ready to wind down at night. While brightly lit LED lights with cooler tones were once popular, warmer and dimmer lights are now preferable. Mirrors once spanned the entire wall, but you can modernize your space by installing a round or irregularly shaped mirror.


Finding the proper lighting for your space can be challenging. Most people want bright and natural lights in the morning but soothing and warm in the afternoon or evening. A simple solution to this problem is to install smart lighting or lighting with a dimmer. With either lighting choice, your bathroom lighting can be adjusted based on your mood and purpose in the bathroom. Handyman Connection professional remodeling services in Saskatoon can install new lighting and dimmer switches, and ensure that current wiring is up to code.


Mirrors can be tricky. When choosing a mirror at the store, shop with a partner to ensure that the image you see in the reflection in one that is accurate. Some mirrors are not made with great effort or accuracy when mass-produced and can also be damaged in shipping. Having a mirror that accurately displays your image while preparing for work or a night on the town is essential for looking and feeling your best.

Replace Vanity and Fixtures

While some vanities come with mirrors and fixtures attached, others do not. When updating your bathroom, be sure to consider the other fixtures in the room and decide if mixing metals is right for you or if you want to replace all of the fixtures and not just those on the vanity.


Replacing your bathroom vanity is the easiest way to update without significant renovation. In many cases, the new vanity will already be prepped and painted, ready for use; the corresponding fixtures to match the vanity are often included in the package. You can create additional space in the bathroom without knocking out a wall or rerouting the plumbing. Alternately, choose a vanity with more drawers and cabinets to decrease clutter and add storage solutions.


Suppose you like your vanity, and you just want to spruce up some old fixtures or mix metals in the bathroom, a very on-trend move right now, consider adding new fixtures. You can modernize your bathroom with black matte fixtures that contrast with gold towel racks. Consider brushed silver knobs with antique bronze faucet and handles. Just a little new shine goes a long way for less in bathrooms.
