You can also use vintage light fixtures, old pieces of barn wood for shelves, or an old mirror above the sink. Every time you use something old instead of something new, you're probably saving money and reducing your consumption. Both very good things. Don't forget to give back too. Any items you take out of your bathroom can be donated to your local Goodwill or to a Habitat for Humanity ReStore. I've recently thought about redoing my own bathroom. My house was built in 1900 and I have one very small bathroom. Thanks to an unfortunate paint color choice, the walls look as if they were hosed down with Pepto Bismal. In other words, it really needs some work and repainting is number one on my list. After that, I'd love to upcycle some old wood or metal to create shelving above the toilet and next to the sink. The plumbing towel racks are also definitely going in.
Wall-mounted sinks. What they are: These are sink basins that are attached to the wall--no pedestal, no vanity. Benefits: Efficient and perfect for tight spaces. That said, they also can be used in larger bathrooms as well. You'll often find them in commercial settings (think of the sinks in movie theater restrooms). Today's materials and options can offer interesting flourishes (i.e. they don't need to be boring). Vessel sinks. What they are: Essentially, the whole basin/bowl sits on top of the counter. Benefits: They can be styled in so many ways from modern to rustic, turn-of-the-century-farmhouse chic. Bonus? If they're part of a vanity, they free up space underneath the countertop. Here's a collection of vessel sinks on Houzz.
When it comes to decorating, specialist tile paints can give you a new look without the hassle and expense of retiling. Alternatively, consider using board panels – waterproof boards that can be easily secured to the bathroom wall. They come in plain or patterned designs, and some even give a tile effect. If most of the walls are tiled but some surfaces are painted, simply changing the colour of the paint can achieve a whole new look. And because of the relatively small amount of wall you have to paint, it will take less time and money than redecorating an untiled room. Do make sure you buy paint that's suitable for bathrooms though – ideally, you want to go for an anti-mould, gloss paint. After this, it is a matter of accessorising. Consider buying new curtains or blinds, perhaps adding a new shower curtain or panel, or even putting down a new floor (vinyl's cheapest).
