Easy bathroom décor makeovers

Turning your bathroom into a gorgeous retreat doesn't have to mean gutting the whole space and starting over. There are plenty of easy makeover ideas that you can follow to instantly breathe new life into the room.

According to Good Housekeeping, the easiest and least expensive way to create a new look is to swap your old towels for fun pieces with bold patterns. Hand and body towels don't necessarily have to match either - just choose a color or a pattern that will create a cohesive collection. Additionally, towels don't have to hang either - purchase an inexpensive woven basket and simply roll your towels to create visual appeal next to the bathtub or shower.

For penny pinchers that don't have the budget for a brand new bathroom vanity, the news source also suggests using shiny and quick-drying latex paint to update your old furniture. Add a splash of bright colors to the cabinet doors and drawer fronts and replace old hardware with contemporary hinges and knobs, and you get a brand new bathroom vanity at the fraction of the cost and in half a day's work.
