Get Rid Of The Mess! Talk about cheap bathroom ideas! And this is the one to do first. Take that stuff off the vanity and the toilet tank! Store itinside the vanity or go buy one or two inexpensive small boxes with hinged tops. Make sure you have the room on the vanity, but interesting boxes look great on the toilet tank. Buy them at a thrift store, even. It makes ahuge difference!
Lighten Up! Here’s one of the cheapest of the cheap bathroom ideas you’ll find. The lighting is that first impression, and if your bathroom is not well lit or your lights look old (and not that “Wow, those look cool” old), your guests’ (or potential buyers’) first impression might be “something’s wrong here.” Many styles of fixtures—including the images (right)—are everywhere for around twenty bucks each! Make sure you match your sink and tub hardware.
Give Your Fixtures A Facelift! There’s nothing like a new bathroom sink faucet, shower faucet or bathtub faucet to liven up any bathroom!
Replacing your faucets might cost a little more than $20, especially if you choose new low flow units, but with all of the discount faucets on the market (usually under $100) you should have no problem keeping on budget and giving your bathroom that much needed facelift!
Accessorize! Add distinctive toothbrush holders, a soap dish and even miniature soaps or bright folded hand towels. Personal touches and accessories (a few) pull the room design together.
Get A nice Shower Curtain. Don’t go overboard, but agree to spend maybe twice what you’d normally spend on a shower curtain. And, coordinate (not match, coordinate) the towels, rugs and shower curtain.
Paint to sell! This is the absolute cheapest of the cheap bathroom ideas by far. You can find returned gallons for $5 at the Big Boxes! These maybe were too wild or satin instead of semi-gloss, and they came back. Choose a subtle color and a wild one. Pick an accent wall for the wild one and go for it. The best choice is semi-gloss or satin for bathrooms.

Add Some Art! Most guests see the kitchen, but every guest sees the bathroom. Carved wooden wall hangings, interesting metal art, paintings (oils or latex) and plastic or silk flowers could look great in there. You can find fantasticcarved and sculpted things for a few dollars at thrift stores, second hand stores and even antique stores.
One or two works of art in a bathroom could make more of a difference than you may think! Garage sales and estate sales are resources, too. Sometimes really funky items are almostgiven away at garage and estate sales. Here’s one of the cheap bathroom ideas that could be free. If you’ve purchased something, ask if they’ll throw in that funky thing for free (like “Froggy” above). Its worth a try.
