Lighten and brighten
No one wants to spend time in a bathroom with bad lighting. Improving the lighting in your bathroom can be as simple as getting the windows cleaned or shrubbery trimmed back to allow more natural light in. Also play with replacing thick curtains with thin ones that allow more light in while still maintaining privacy. Adding mirrors or art that reflect light will also help to brighten the room with very little added cost. If additional light is still needed at a couple fixtures to your bathroom. The best light for grooming comes from light above the mirror as well as on either side.

Play with paint
A guaranteed way to update your bathroom is with paint. You can paint the walls, the shelves, or just a vanity for very low cost. Because bathrooms are humid and moisture collects you will want to use a mildew or moisture resistant primer to seal the paint. Don’t be afraid to use color in the bathroom! This will help brighten the bathroom as well.
