5 Simple Ways to Make Your Bathroom More Luxurious Without Blowing the Budget


Everyone wants to feel like their home, especially the rooms they use frequently, is stylish, luxurious, and expensive-looking, but few people have the budget to actually go all out on remodeling a space like their bathroom. Still, that doesn’t mean that you have to settle for a subpar space that you won’t enjoy using, or that there’s no way for you to achieve the bathroom of your dreams! There are plenty of ways for you to spruce up a sad bathroom and turn it into something that feels like it belongs in a five star hotel, all without breaking the bank. Here are a few of them!

Matching Hardware

If you want any room to look cohesive, chic, and like it was designed by an interior decorator, there’s one thing you should always keep in mind– match your metals. Pick a metal type or tone that you’re going to use throughout the entire room, be it silver, gold, oiled bronze, black, gunmetal, or anything else that suits your style. Then, make sure that all of your fixtures and hardware are in that metal tone, including your faucet and showerhead, cabinet handles and drawer pulls, doorknobs, door hinges, and so on. The effect will be very subtle but very powerful, making your bathroom look good in a way that most people won’t be able to put their finger on until you point it out.

Exciting Lighting

Nothing makes a bathroom look sadder than bad lighting, be it harsh fluorescents or dim, dirty bulbs. Not only will it bring down the look of the entire room, but it will make you look worse when you glance in the mirror– not something that will help you enjoy being in your bathroom! Something as simple as changing out your lightbulbs for a different color or warmth can be very transformative, but if you want to take things to another level while still staying on budget, updating your light fixtures can seriously revitalize a space.

Large Showerheads

If you want every shower to feel luxurious, indulgent, and rewarding, you’re going to need to pick the right showerhead, and once you do, you’ll feel its impact immediately! Large showerheads with a big spray will allow you to get wet all at once, stay warm, and enjoy the feeling of the gentle massage of the water streams. Rain showerheads are a popular option, but if that doesn’t sound quite your speed, look for a more traditional style in a larger size, and try to find something that prioritizes water pressure to allow you to get the most out of your shower experience!

Tile Regrouting

If there’s something that just looks “off” about your bathroom to you but you can’t quite put your finger on why the room feels dirty, outdated, or tired, take a closer look at the grout in your shower stall, backsplash, or floor. You might find that it looks like it’s seen better days! Dirty, worn-out grout is something that can really take away from a bathroom’s appeal, but luckily, it’s not too expensive to fix! The most budget-friendly option would be to put in some elbow grease and clean the grout yourself, but it’s still relatively inexpensive (and far easier) to have your tiles regrouted for a perfectly fresh look.

Heated Towel Racks

Yes, you can. Sometimes luxury is about life’s simple pleasures, and few sensations measure up to the feeling of wrapping yourself in a deliciously warm towel as you step out of the shower. Heated towel racks make this a possibility, bringing your towel up to toasty temperatures while you’re under the water, and they’re surprisingly practical features to have in your bathroom. They can also act as a gentle way to dry delicate clothes, and you can use them to heat up socks, gloves, and scarves before heading outside in the winter or blankets before bed. They can also be fairly cost-effective to install, especially if you’re already in the process of remodeling your bathroom.
