You don't have to take out a second mortgage to breathe new life into your outdated or drab bathrooms. With a bit of elbow grease, some creativity, and fixtures from Maykke, you can give your bathroom the facelift you've been dreaming about. Whether you want to keep it simple or include a posh new LED bathroom mirror and double sink vanity, Maykke has products to meet your creative needs and keep your wallet happy.

Here are 7 budget-friendly bathroom remodeling ideas to get you started:

1. Paint It Up

Paint is one of the cheapest and most impactful ways to freshen up a new space. Whether you want to compliment your current bathroom furniture and fixtures or repaint your entire bathroom, this is a project that can typically be done on a budget and over the course of an afternoon.

2. Hardware and Outlets

Instead of replacing your bathroom vanity, change out the hardware instead. Just a few dollars spent on cabinet hinges and knobs can bring a 70's vanity into the present. While you're at it, change out the faceplates on your light switches and electrical outlets for a fresh new look.

3. Bathroom Furniture

Make a bold statement in your bathroom with inspiring bathroom furniture. A quirky and bold ottoman or chair may be just enough to recreate your space. If you're repainting, pick a piece that accentuates your new color scheme!

4. Brighten It Up

Pull out your builder-grade light fixtures and replace them with recessed lighting or stylish new light fixtures. Take the opportunity to add lighting to other areas of the bathroom as well. Use LED light strips to light up the areas under shelving, or install a backlit LED bathroom mirror to brighten up your bathroom space.

5. Double Up Your Vanity

One drastic way to update your bathroom is to pull out your old vanity and replace it with a modern bathroom vanity. A double sink vanity does double duty by giving you more space to get ready in the mornings, while also presenting a bold new look for your bathroom space.

6. Change Your Mirror

Whether you are upgrading to a medicine cabinet mirror or a standard over the sink model, upgrading your old, worn out mirror is another inexpensive remodel that can be completed in as little time as it takes to hang a picture frame.

7. Hunt for Deals

Just because you're on a budget doesn't mean that you have to sacrifice your design. Keep an eye out for bathtubs for sale, or other promotions on new vanities and fixtures. If you're patient, you can find that a new clawfoot tub or double sink vanity to fit within your budget and workspace.
