Your bathroom should be serene and tranquil, creating a space where you feel rejuvenated and ready to start the day or relaxed and ready to end the day.

Today at homify, we are going to find out!

We've put together some tips and tricks—11 in fact—to show you how you can decorate your bathroom in a cheap and cost-effective way.

Mirrors are not expensive but they can change the whole look and feel of a bathroom. Place them on the walls above the sink for functionality. But they can also make a room seem that much bigger!

Have a look at these 11 clever ways to use mirrors in your home.

2. Replace the floor tiles

Ceramic tiles are not expensive but they can change the whole look and feel of a bathroom. Here we can see how the black and white floor tiles enhance the entire space, introducing character and charm to the environment.

3. Or wall tiles

You can also use ceramic tiles to bring charm and personality to a bathroom. For small bathrooms, use bright colours or bold patterns so it becomes the focal point!

4. Add some bright textiles

Utilise the functional items in your bathroom such as the shower mat and the towels to introduce some colour. This will liven up and beautify any small bathroom—on a budget!

5. Add a piece of artwork

Art isn't just for the living areas. Use canvases or framed images to create a serene and peaceful atmosphere, like we see here by architects Olivehill.

6. Recycle a ladder

Did you know that a ladder makes for a fabulous towel rack? Simply recycle a wooden ladder for a beautiful look and feel!

7. Add some candles

Nothing says relaxation and rejuvenation like candles. Use them to create a peaceful (and maybe romantic?) ambiance!

8. Add a pot plant

A pot plant or a vase of fresh flowers can liven up the bathroom environment, connecting it with nature.  Don't you love this look and feel?

9. Let the light in

See if you can open up the windows in your bathroom by removing the curtains and blinds or opt for a skylight if possible. Natural light can change the entire space in an instant! It will also make the bathroom that much warmer and more cosy.

10. A vertical garden

A vertical garden can rejuvenate a bathroom environment, creating a very refreshing and peaceful space.

13. Expose the bricks

Chip away the plaster or remove the wallpaper from your walls and leave the brick exposed for a trendy and industrial chic look and feel.

Simply gorgeous!
