There are those who may be bored or just generally dissatisfied with the state of their bathroom decor but assume they'll have to spend a lot of money to do anything about it. Their situation isn't nearly as dire as they think. There are plenty of ways to boost the quality of ambiance in bathrooms without draining a bank account.
Bathroom additions that only cost about buck
For example, Nebraska-based newspaper the Journal Star scrounged up some thoughts on how you could spruce up your bathroom for only $1 or thereabouts. Specifically, the news source points to retail outlets specifically designed for people trying to avoid depleted their finances. You might not find a worthwhile contemporary bathroom vanity at Family Dollar, but the Journal Star points out that such chain stores could be good places to look around for minor items such as shower curtains or towels.
Not unlike thrift stores or even record stores, the journey can be its own reward when it comes to wandering around large stores for budget-conscious shoppers. The source notes that going in to a shopping mission while knowing exactly what you want and where to find it isn't as much fun as having a vague idea that leads to lots of searching.
Organization may be key to improving bathroom
Then again, some practices that could make your bathroom feel more spiffy don't necessarily need to cost a dime. In fact, they don't even require you to leave your home. SheKnows.com encourages individuals trying to amp up the decor of their small bathrooms to, first and foremost, focus on making the best use of space, organization and not leaving clothes or empty shampoo bottles or other clutter in a bathroom.
While you could meet this goal with a little time and elbow grease, the source notes that it might not necessarily hurt to reexamine how you use your vanity and whatever shelve space is available. If you're already planning on replacing your vanity, for example, think about grabbing one with more shelves.
Also, changing up the lighting arrangement could be a big plus for a small bathroom. Decrying "dull ceiling light[s]" that were popular during the 1970s, Sheknows.com advises installing a more contemporary track lighting fixture. If that sounds out of your price range, consider making better use of light already coming into the room by putting up new curtains.
