Millennials live in tiny spaces. The apartments built nowadays are 8% smaller than those from 10 years ago, not to mention that they're also way more expensive, making it almost impossible to have a proper home with today's reduced salaries. This has inspired many trends, like upcycling and DIY, which promote a life without spending too much money. These currents show people how to take the most of a used object, incorporate it into a place, and make it more attractive.
Making a small bathroom look amazing with a tight budget is not an impossible task. Exploit your creativity and incorporate useful and efficient furniture. Below are some examples that can inspire you to decorate your bathroom.
Most of the things you store in the bathroom aren't that heavy, so you can use old or DIY baskets or crates to organize towels and beauty products. There's also some office furniture that can be very useful. For instance, you can also use an old ladder and adapt it as a hanger or a shelf. This will reduce the use of space, since most of the things will be on the wall. If you want a simple solution, you can always get some regular shelves and place them over the toilet.
Reusing kitchen tools can also be a great idea. Mason jars can be used to keep smaller items. You can use small dish racks to organize your toothbrushes or soaps. Digging into the things you don’t use anymore can inspire you to adapt them into new storage accessories.
Boxes, antiques, or the broken pieces of old furniture can be the best choice to create perfect accessories. You don’t need to invest too much money or time to adapt them. With just some screws and tools, you’ll create amazing vintage decorations. Another important thing to consider is the number of towels, shampoo bottles, and other things you want to store; the size and number of organizers and accessories will depend on this.
You don’t have to be an interior designer to decorate and organize your home. It's all about using your intuition and creating a balance between furniture, the objects you want to store, and decorative elements. Combine colors and make the most of spaces to customize your bathroom for a harmonious atmosphere.
Go against the grain and make a space of your own. Use unusual objects and adapt them to create a space that matches your personality and taste. It's all about trial and error. Experiment to find a style that fits the best, and if you don’t like it, you can always change things to find new options. Your bathroom doesn't have to look boring just because it’s a little cramped. Turn it into a place of relaxation and comfort.
Decorating this private room shouldn’t be a complex endeavor. The Internet offers hundreds of options to experiment with objects and spaces. Photographs can be useful sources of inspiration. Letting your creativity run amok is an important step of this process. It’s all about experimenting and creating without spending a lot of money.
