Another important accessory that can compliment your bathroom design and increase comfort is a bath mat set. If your bathroom already has many colors and accessories, select a single-color set. However, if your bathroom has minimal accessories, selecting a bath mat that has a bold color and/or interesting design will make a big visual impact.

Cost: A single piece of handmade soap can cost from $1.99 and up. Each soap displayed in the picture was $4.99, sold on Etsy.com by SmellyCat Shop.

Cost: The most budget-friendly 3-piece towel set we found is at Target, by Room Essentials for $11.97. Available in 6 different colors. Purchase here

Cost: An orchid costs $17-20 A single bamboo stick costs $4.99

Let’s recap all the items you will need for your bathroom makeover and calculate the total cost:

Your bathroom towels can be another eye catching detail. You don’t even need to look for any expensive or special designs, the color of the towels alone will make a visual difference.

Replace the old shower head with a modern, low-flow shower head. You can get a sunflower-style head, which creates a rain-like spray, or a hand-held one, which hangs from above like a normal shower or can be hand-operated thanks to its attached hose.

DIY cost: $40Install a new tub/shower trim kit. Swap out the handles and nozzles on your shower with new ones made by the same manufacturer. This is an easy do-it-yourself job, with the kit costing just $20 to $50, depending on brand.

Also, replace the toilet handle; DIY cost is about $20.

Alternatively, you can purchase frames for $1 each at the Dollar Tree, and each print will cost you $0.25-0.75 at a local drug store.

Places to Shop: You can find the best prices for orchids, bamboo and all kids of other plants at either The Home Depot or Lowe’s stores.

Installing a large mirror can make a big difference in a small bathroom. It will make your space look both bigger and brighter. Even if you already have a mirror as part of your bathroom vanity or cabinet, putting another mirror on the opposite wall will amplify the effect. Mirrors without heavy frames work best in small bathrooms, plus they usually cost less. For a personal touch, consider a none-traditional mirror shape, such as round or oval.

Places to Shop: Amazon, Target, Bed, Bath and Beyond have a good selection of bath accessory sets. Original, hand-crafted and one of a kind bath accessory sets, as well as separate items can be found on Etsy.com

Candles can not only add a touch of romance and luxury to your bathroom space, they can also bring an array of scents that will delight your senses. Go around different shops and smell candles to find the scents that lift your spirits. Candles also have beautiful warm colors, so use them to add those lovely accents in your bathroom. 1-3 candles of complementary scents should do the trick.

One of the most noticeable accessories in a small bathroom is the shower curtain, so put some thought into the color and design of yours. If the walls of your bathroom are either white or beige, or another very light color, go for a bright, bold shower curtain to create a focal point of the space. If you have bright color walls and want to create a modern look, go for a shower curtain that is of a complementary color to the walls. For example, if you have a blue walls, get a brown or beige shower curtain. Alternatively, you can create a more traditional look and feel by selecting a shower curtain that is similar to the color of the walls.

Paint the bathroom. A coat of mildew-resistant bathroom paint goes a long way toward freshening up your bathroom. A handyman or pro painter will charge $250-$350 for a 5-by-7-foot bathroom, including paint.

Trim costs by removing mirrors, light fixtures, and towel bars yourself prior to painting.Replace the towel and toilet paper holder, the medicine cabinet, and the shower curtain. These are simple DIY jobs that can transform the look of any bathroom.

DIY cost: $250.

Soap can be so much more than just the lonely bar you use to wash your hands in the bathroom. Handmade soap can be a great piece of bathroom decor, transforming the space into a luxurious spa. Look for soaps of different shapes, colors and sizes and create beautiful, original displays. An added bonus is that handmade soap is made with natural ingredients, smell wonderful and will contribute to your bathroom’s ambiance.

Keep in mind the overall design theme of your bathroom. You can find shower curtains that go well with nature, nautical, geometric/modern, city-style, feminine, kid-friendly, etc. styles.

With a little bit of effort, you can put together your best pieces of bathroom decor all by yourself. All you need is some glass apothecary jars (you can substitute regular glass jars, if apothecary jars are over your budget), and fill them up with your favorite bath accessories, little soaps, bath salts, cotton balls, natural sponges, bath bombs, sand and sea shells, glass beads, etc. You can display the jars either on top of the toilet, or install one or two wall shelves.

Chances are your bathroom is a standard 5 x 8 ft size, and at first this lack of space can seem limiting to achieving a great design. Nothing can be further from the truth, if you know the secret to any small bathroom remodel: the devil is in the details! It is the combination of carefully selected bathroom accessories and small personal touches that will make you love every minute you spend in your bathroom.
