10 Budget Friendly Bathroom Updates

If you’re fed up with how your bathroom looks and dream of a change, but can’t afford a major revamp, these 10 budget friendly bathroom updates from BigBathroomShop.co.uk will give you plenty of inspiration.

10 ways to update your bathroom on a budget

Replace the shower curtain

An old grubby shower curtain that’s covered in mould and mildew, won’t do your bathroom any favours. So, you can either wash it to freshen it up, or replace it with a new one for a quick and inexpensive bathroom update.

Shower curtains come in an array of prints and designs, and they provide a great way to add a splash of colour or pattern to the bathroom. To ensure a coordinated look, choose a shower curtain that contains some of the colour that’s in the towels and bath mat.

Fit a new mirror

A new mirror with a decorative frame will add a little luxury to your bathroom and transform it in an instant. For an on-trend look and to create a stylish feature, choose a round mirror rather than a standard square or rectangular design.

Bathroom wall stickers

From nautical designs to inspirational quotes, bathroom wall stickers provide a fab way to restyle your bathroom without breaking the bank. Wall stickers can be applied to almost any smooth surface, and are surprisingly easy to apply too.

Add a basket or two

A couple of baskets dotted around your bathroom helps to keep the space organised and tidy. Providing a low cost way to update the bathroom, baskets are perfect for storing towels, toilet roll and other bits and bobs. Place larger ones under the basin and smaller ones on a shelf.

Upgrade your towels

A new set of inexpensive towels and a bath mat has got to be one of the easiest ways to revamp any bathroom. Bright towels are perfect for adding a pop of colour to a plain white bathroom suite, while neutral colours create a spa-style vibe.


Fitting a shiny new toiler roll holder, towel bar and soap dispenser will give your bathroom a lift with little effort. Choose accessories from the same collection for a matching bathroom scheme. Candles, room diffusers, ornaments and a real or artificial plant will also give your bathroom a much needed boost without the need to spend a fortune.

Declutter and tidy up

If your bathroom looks like a bomb has hit it, having a good declutter and tidy up will work wonders, and best of all, you don’t have to spend a penny (no pun intended!). Have a good clear out and throw anything away that hasn’t been used in a long, long time. Only keep what you need in the bathroom on a daily basis and store toiletries away out of sight in a bathroom cabinet or vanity unit for a super organised space.

A fresh coat of paint

A fresh coat of paint will breathe a new lease of life into any bathroom that’s in need of a makeover. You don’t have to stick to neutral tones, instead get creative and use darker colours in a small space to add a sense of luxury and drama, or use pastel colours to create a calm and serene space.


If your bathroom walls are looking sparse, spruce them up with a couple of framed prints from Pixa Prints. Go for oversized proportions for visual impact, or add a personal touch by framing your favourite photos. You could even use objects such as shells and starfish to decorate your bathroom wall.

Replace the light fixture

Replace an old light fixture with some stylish spotlights to brighten up your bathroom. Make sure to choose LED lights to save money on electric bills, and as they have a super long lifespan, you’ll spend less on bulb replacements. You could also attach LED striplights around a mirror and underneath shelves to cast an ambient glow.
