Budget Makeover: Turquoise and Red Bathroom

Bathroom Decoration

In the mood for a new bath but can’t budget the cost and endure days of workmen trudging through your home? A new bathroom can be achieved with some creative ingenuity. Alicia Paulson used fun colors and accents to make this bathroom one of the perkiest rooms in her house. The style is reminiscent of seaside holidays in France, where red striped umbrellas and blue ocean tones define the look.



Small Decorated Bathroom

Paint It: Alicia Paulson encourages you to test paint on your walls rather than depend on a color chip. “It is totally worth it,” she says. “If you put five test spots on the wall and watch them at different times of the day, you’ll be surprised at how you’ll just know which one is right for you.”

 Bathroom Cabinet

Try It: A basic shelf is not only a dependable catchall for your bathroom necessities, it can be a display that’s as pretty as any picture. To keep necessities from looking like elements on a locker shelf, group them by color, height and theme. Classic pieces like a great hairbrush and beautifully packaged soap are the decorative pieces used to give this bathroom a styled look.


Buy It: Wallpaper and fabric can provide low-cost enhancements to your bathroom, along withcurtains and a new coat of paint. Accessories are an easy, budget-friendly way to add a dose of fun.
