Upgrade Your Bathroom With These Budget-Friendly Ideas


These fresh takes on wainscoting, tile, flooring, and more make it easy to trade up to one-of-a-kind style.

1. Subway Wall

Create an accent wall with tile in a warm neutral color, like this soothing gray. Taking the tile all the way up to the ceiling will make the room appear taller.

2. Salvaged Shutters

Forgo pricey shades and dress up a window with painted shutters instead. Louvered-on-top designs like the ones here offer privacy without blocking light, and the adjustable slats let you direct the sun’s rays.

Similar to shown: Check out etsy.com for salvaged shutters, starting at about $25 each.

3. Mixed-Material Floor

Add some variety underfoot by combining textures—in this case, wood planks and pebble tile—for an unexpected twist that brings the great outdoors inside.
