Replacing sconces, electrical fixtures, faucets, cabinet hardware and mirror frames in coordinating materials helps a small bathroom look fresh without much expense. Older fixtures can also be refinished rather than replaced for additional savings. Check flea markets and antique stores for interesting towel racks and other hardware.

Refurbishing an existing vanity with a creative approach, such as decoupage or collaging, changes the look of a bathroom. Consider repurposing an antique table or chest as a vanity. Add an interesting sink for visual interest.

Small bathrooms rarely have sufficient storage. Visit organizational stores for ideas on how to add shelves, cabinets, baskets and caddies to add storage to a small bathroom. Add shelves above toilets and over bathtubs to create more effective space.
