How to Upcycle a Bathroom

Transforming rooms of the house can be an exciting thought, but it can also be a little daunting. This could be because of disruption, costs, or even change, but what if there was an option of a transformation on a budget? That is where upcycling comes in. Upcycling is a great way to keep costs down, get crafty, and have fun, all at the same time. Here is a guide on how to upcycle a bathroom on a budget!

Reduce Clutter in the Bathroom

The first step to upcycling a bathroom is to get rid of any clutter or anything that is not needed anymore. Old shampoo bottles, shower gel, product containers with tiny bits left in the end can all make their way to recycling. A great way to keep a bathroom tidy is bathroom cabinets or stands. These can get a little pricey, so why not upcycle some old wooden chest of draws? Find some from a local thrift store or online second-hand websites such as Craigslist or Gumtree and refresh with a new color coat of paint and some stylish knob handles to create a beautiful upcycled bathroom cabinet!


Upcycled Pallets for the Bathroom

Bathrooms always seem to need more storage than would be thought necessary, but that is probably because quite a lot is done in there! A brilliant upcycle trick for gorgeous rustic storage would be to use pallets! Pallets are incredibly versatile and creating a storage box from them is very simple. Upcycle these palettes to create fantastic storage solutions such as a lidded folding box, shelves, or even a small bench!

 Significant Changes in the Bathroom

Sometimes a new toilet seat might just not do, and bigger plans have taken hold. Maybe there is a dream for a claw foot bath or an eco-friendly shower? There might even be a desire for a treat, such as a heated floor. While these might not fall under upcycling (or for a smaller budget), it is better to not scrimp on the big changes. No matter what style, pick a professional HVAC Service to install any big changes!

 Create Upcycled Accessories for the Bathroom

One of the fastest ways to transform a room is with accessories, and the bathroom is not an exception! Some simple accessories can really pull a room together, and what better than to upcycle and create something handmade? Why not use a wooden ladder as a charming, rustic towel holder or find some old washed out mason jars, perfect for storing cotton rounds and Q-tips. A plain framed mirror can be transformed with a can of chrome spray paint or even some decorative collaging materials. Not only will these complete the room, but they are also functional, making it a win-win!

 Upcycling is a great way to breathe fresh life into old items, keep costs down, and transform a room, just remember to use professional services for the bigger jobs to keep your room safe and functioning!
