There are ways on how you can have the beautiful bathroom without the enormous costs. Wondering how? Check out these ten tips to upgrade to the luxury bathroom you deserve.
Ten Tips To Upgrade To The Luxury Bathroom You Deserve
You don’t need to spend thousands of dollars just to get the perfect bathroom everyone will be impressed by! Try out any (or all) these ten tips for a better bathroom:
1. Getting Gorgeous Lighting and Colors
If you want a luxurious bathroom even without the expensive upgrades, you can have your casual room look elegant by painting it a light neutral paint color like white. If you want something classy, gray will work best, which is soothing and easy to match with many. Have it look high-end with brushed silver fixtures. Monochromatic colors and simple color palettes will have your bathroom look like an exclusive spa retreat.
Additionally, you should begin adding more natural light to your bathroom and bringing the outdoors in, from window treatments down to plants and nature outwork. It makes your bathroom look more prominent and zen-like. If you have a dated bathroom you can’t remodel yet, then make it to a luxury and stylish space by choosing one paint color to unify it.
2. Customizing Bathrooms With Paint
Besides the walls, you can also opt to customize your bathroom furniture with paint! You don’t need to spend the whole day painting walls but to have a coat of new paint on your dresser or vanity. It’s easy to do, and you can find DIY tutorials online where you can turn your furniture into beautiful vanities as well with the basic construction and the right paint.
Make sure you choose paint colors for your furniture which you can repeat around the room for other accessories. I recommend that you get a vibrant gray paint color which gives your bathroom the luxurious and expensive look while keeping it natural.
3. What Kind Of Tiles Should You Use?
Expensive bathrooms would have tiled showers and tubs. Though it can be quite a splurge, this is a timeless update which will last for years while still looking luxurious! Just make sure that you choose tiles that have neutral colors or simple designs. I would recommend that you invest in gorgeous glass tile ribbons, which can add a lot of personalities and stay beautiful no matter how many times you remodel your bathroom in the future.
For those who want a luxurious and art-inspired bathroom, go for colorful glass tiles or have mirrors with colorful tile frames. It gives your bathroom a fun and new look!
4. Add Wooden Accents
If you want to have a zen retreat type of luxurious bathroom, then go for wood as a decorative element. It makes your space relaxed and calming. I recommend that you use wood as a horizontal wall design, which makes it look similar to a sauna in high-end lodges and resorts. Pair these wooden accents with natural decor accents and neutral paint colors for an even more soothing look.
5. Rich Jewel Tones For Luxury
Do you want to upgrade our bathroom and have a powder room? If you wish a faux-expensive makeover for your powder room and add a bit of glam to it, then opt to paint your bathroom with a jewel tone paint color. This type of in-depth paint color will work beautifully as long as it has the right lighting. However, you’ll need to spend more for a primer-paint combination to make the bathroom pop.
Additionally, you can add pretty accessories and personalized towels for an extra touch, as well as the best lighted makeup mirror and glam lighting to make it look like a celebrity’s powder room!
6. Have A Wallpaper Accent
Yes, you can use wallpaper in your bathroom! But do make sure that it has the proper ventilation or it may end up getting damaged in the long run. If not, then you’ll want to try installing wallpaper in powder rooms or guest baths instead, which won’t be getting too much steam from showers. Additionally, go for adhesive rather than paste application to make it last longer.
Create a custom bathroom style with crown molding for an elegant look. You can also go for a wallpaper accent wall to have a glamorous style. If you want something artistic, have different wallpapers in each corner.
7. Invest In Rainfall Showerheads (If Not a Tub!)
Not all of us will be able to invest in a tub, which costs thousands to source and install! Instead, you can get the next best thing, which is a rainfall showerhead. These are relaxing and soothing showers which can give you the massaging effects that calm you down, making your bathroom feel like a spa. Another huge plus is that they are easy to set up and are quite inexpensive as well.
But if you do plan on getting a bathtub, this will be the most expensive feature, which can end up costing as much as $10,000. You can still save up by checking online shops or salvage shops for vintage tubs you can reglaze, which costs under $1,000!
8. Customize the Vanities
Instead of the usual countertops, start having beautiful vanities, which can have your bathroom look vintage and fabulous to look at. You can either repurpose furniture you own or head on to a flea market to see unique vanities you can invest in. I would also recommend that you get a floating vanity, which has your bathroom look and feel airy because of the open space between the vanity and the floor. You can make it look simple by adding a plank of wood with vessel sinks or one that can be installed with double sinks and drawers, which makes it look even more fancy and luxurious.
9. Upgrade Your Knobs and Pulls
If you don’t have enough funds to customize or purchase a vanity, nor do you have the time to install one, then not to worry. You can still have your bathroom’s vanities and overall design look vintage and unique by upgrading your drawers’ and cabinets’ knobs and pulls. Head on to specialty or vintage stores, which offer one-of-a-kind hardware that makes your bathroom look different and in a right way!
Replacing your knobs and pulls is a great way to upgrade your storage while making it look even grander. Plus, it’s inexpensive and quite easy to install. You can do it within the day!
10. Check Out What Needs To Be Repaired
And last but not the least, nothing screams luxurious and relaxing with a bathroom that has all the fixtures that work. You wouldn’t feel like you’re in a spa if your shower head starts to leak or when your toilet seat is cracked. It’s time to identify what’s wrong in the bathroom, from plumbing to appearances, and fix them. Once you have decluttered everything and fixed what needs to be fixed, your bathroom will look and feel new again, which is what makes it feel luxurious to stay in. Plus, with a working bathroom, there’s nothing to worry about in the long term.

Having a luxurious bathroom will give the calming, and realizing feel when you step in your showers. Not only will it have you feel at home but your visitors will wow over the magnificence.
