Although bathroom is not the first thing your guests will notice, sometimes it still needs revamping in case they need to use it. You do want to impress them, don’t you? in this list, I am going to show you 10 modern bathroom ideas on a budget by simphome.com that will improve your bathroom’s look without making you caught a little short.
10. Begin with Small Things
When you are thinking about renovating your bathroom, and your bathroom sink, what will you probably do? Removing your old vanity and replacing it with a new one? Well, that will surely provide a new look in no time, but it entails a lot of work and bucks. My advice, begin with some simple things like the shower curtain, soap container, and flowers.
Matching some accessories can boost a different nuance to your bathroom. If you don’t have much time and budget to paint the entire bathroom, you can match your shower curtain, flowers, vase, and the soap basket too.
Also, if your bathroom is rather small, hanging white or clear curtain would make it appear expanded, just like what this curtain does. Its basic color is white with some aqua accents completed with aqua jars used to store cotton buds and hold two beautiful hydrangeas. Last, the aqua basket that holds the soaps also complement this room interior as well.
9. DIY Bathroom Remodel by Angela Marie Made
If a tight budget is your real issue, you can always go with some DIY projects that won’t definitely burned deep hole in your pocket. For your bathroom, you can try different DIY projects such as installing beadboard bathroom, changing the tiles, adding a bathroom vanity, etc.
If you have much time to embellish your bathroom, you can begin with making DIY shiplap ceiling. To make the ceiling, you are going to need 4ft x 8ft Plywood sheets, ceiling trim or molding, 1 ¼” brad nails, paint, paintbrush, and some assistance because you can’t install this shiplap ceiling yourself.
Once the ceiling is done, now you can go with the flooring. To save more money and time, try investing in vinyl flooring. Some vinyl flooring is easy to install. You don’t have to remove the existing tiles as you can install it right over them.
8. DIY Toilet Paper Stand by the Merrythought
This toilet paper stand is cute and easy to make. Therefore, you should try it to your bathroom renovation to fill in the awkward space next to your closet.
To make this toilet paper stand, you’re going to need a piece of 1″x6″x6′ board cut into two 25″ pieces and two 8″ pieces, a wooden dowel, screws, drill, sandpaper, and 7/8” forstner bit.
Measure 1 ½” in on sides of the bottom of 8” pieces, and 3/8” from top and bottom. Do the same thing on ends of 25” pieces. Then, drill a hole through the four marks you made to the 8” pieces. Repeat this step to each end of the 25” pieces. Measure 3 ½” from the top of 25” pieces. Using forstner bit, drill a hole on each 25” pieces to insert the wooden dowel that holds the toilet paper. And, voila! You have a super cheap toilet paper stand for your bathroom.
You can apply any finish you like. You can paint or just stain it. but make sure sand the boards first so you can apply the paint or stain easier.
7. Investing in Skylight Tube
Nothing can beat the fruitfulness of natural daylight. It can light your room up without increasing your bill and it can feed your soul with new rejoice too. Instead of installing one or two LED lights in your bathroom, invest in a solar tube.
Unlike any traditional skylights that contribute to eye strain, glare, and heat in the home as the natural daylight passes through the glass window without being filtered, solar tube provides better daylight without heat and glare.
To install it above your bathroom, choose your best spot. Then, cut a hole on your ceiling and roof. After that, assemble the top and bottom of the tube. Lastly, Don’t forget to install the top and bottom portions of the tube before installing dome and diffuser lens.
6. Stencil Tile Floor idea
Feeling bored with your bathroom flooring? Then this stencil tile floor idea is my recommendation. It is straightforward and fast since you only need to apply the stencil over the existing tiles without removing them all.
First, make sure that the tiles and grouts are clean. The cleaner the tiles, the easier and faster the installation of the stencil tile will be.
Paint the tiles charcoal color. Let the paint dry before applying another coat. Once the second coat is dry, you can begin laying the stencil and painting the design. After you’re done, seal the painted floor using polyacrylic.

00:00:04,760 --> 00:00:08,320
1.Ceiling Storage For Bed3
00:00:08,320 --> 00:00:10,840
Most are familiar with the Murphy bed,4
00:00:10,840 --> 00:00:12,370
which allows users to fold it against the wall when5
00:00:12,370 --> 00:00:14,540
it is not in use.6
00:00:14,540 --> 00:00:17,200
While this most definitely saves space,7
00:00:17,200 --> 00:00:19,420
having your bed on the ceiling will give you the8
00:00:19,420 --> 00:00:22,200
maximum amount of square footage of your room.9
00:00:23,540 --> 00:00:26,380
Though its origins are from a French manufacturer,10
00:00:26,380 --> 00:00:28,740
the idea in place is essentially a pulley11
00:00:28,740 --> 00:00:30,820
system for the mattress and frame.12
00:00:32,000 --> 00:00:34,560
Do not be intimidated by the notion,13
00:00:34,560 --> 00:00:37,680
as installation isn't nearly as complicated as it sounds,14
00:00:38,060 --> 00:00:41,260
with Ikea now dipping its toes into this forum.15
00:00:41,860 --> 00:00:42,800
00:00:43,340 --> 00:00:45,340
If you decide this route is for you,17
00:00:45,340 --> 00:00:47,900
use a preexisting frame by BedUp18
00:00:47,900 --> 00:00:49,800
(or a similar competitor)19
00:00:49,800 --> 00:00:51,860
that raises and lowers the mattress20
00:00:51,860 --> 00:00:53,920
but still gives you the freedom to determine21
00:00:53,920 --> 00:00:55,520
00:00:56,020 --> 00:00:59,320

by Yesul Jang24
00:01:01,080 --> 00:01:03,860
Graduate Yesul Jang was the original mind25
00:01:03,860 --> 00:01:05,720
behind the millennial bed that is raised to26
00:01:05,720 --> 00:01:08,680
waist level so items like dorm room accessories27
00:01:08,680 --> 00:01:10,760
can all fit underneath,28
00:01:10,760 --> 00:01:11,960
as sort of a makeshift29
00:01:11,960 --> 00:01:13,880
bunk bed of practicality.30
00:01:14,460 --> 00:01:15,600
00:01:15,600 --> 00:01:17,760
a fabric curtain can cover your belongings32
00:01:17,760 --> 00:01:18,740
so that they are not in view at33
00:01:18,740 --> 00:01:20,120
00:01:20,120 --> 00:01:22,420
In using such a curtain, they are cheap35
00:01:22,420 --> 00:01:25,100
and quick to replace if they incur damage.36
00:01:25,940 --> 00:01:28,900
Because statistically sleeping space and storage37
00:01:28,900 --> 00:01:30,900
take up the most real estate in a dwelling,38
00:01:31,280 --> 00:01:33,640
it is a natural blend to pair them in the39
00:01:33,640 --> 00:01:35,300
same square footage.40
00:01:36,020 --> 00:01:39,820
3. A DIY Hidden Roll Out Bed41
00:01:39,820 --> 00:01:42,560
Rearranging furniture is enough to give anyone42
00:01:42,560 --> 00:01:44,980
a headache, and never is this more true than43
00:01:45,160 --> 00:01:47,460
00:01:47,460 --> 00:01:50,340
Their cumbersome size and stature will45
00:01:50,340 --> 00:01:52,180
make you tear your hair out,46
00:01:52,180 --> 00:01:54,520
but fresh ideas have come to fruition47

on how to make hiding them48
00:01:56,160 --> 00:01:58,020
00:01:58,020 --> 00:02:00,780
One such solution is an accordion style panel50
00:02:00,780 --> 00:02:02,770
of wooden strips that are each connected by51
00:02:02,770 --> 00:02:05,060
hinges on both ends.52
00:02:05,060 --> 00:02:07,800
In essence, the platform folds into a drawer,53
00:02:07,800 --> 00:02:10,600
with one piece of wood folding on top of another54
00:02:10,760 --> 00:02:13,040
as if you are stacking them.55
00:02:13,040 --> 00:02:14,980
When the drawer is pulled out,56
00:02:14,980 --> 00:02:16,820
the wooden frame of the bed pulls flat,57
00:02:16,820 --> 00:02:18,280
with the hinges flush.58
00:02:18,280 --> 00:02:20,700
making a level surface for the mattress.

Capable of taking up an entire wall,26
00:01:10,200 --> 00:01:12,200
the system utilizes wooden wedges27
00:01:12,200 --> 00:01:13,460
to keep shelves from28
00:01:13,460 --> 00:01:14,980
00:01:14,980 --> 00:01:17,400

known as 'Shift.'42
00:01:54,540 --> 00:01:57,220
The idea behind its foundation is derived43
00:01:57,220 --> 00:01:59,700
from retail outlets, who are in frequent need44

the capability to be moved at the drop of a hat.48
00:02:12,060 --> 00:02:14,280
This process can be done at home, by lining49
00:02:14,280 --> 00:02:16,820
each shelf with a magnet on the bracket that50
00:02:16,820 --> 00:02:19,540
will hold it in place on the panels.51
00:02:19,540 --> 00:02:22,040
