For less than $500, HGTV fan nesting completely changed the look of this bathroom. Beadboard wainscoting, a crisp, white tile countertop and several gallons of paint are to thank for the makeover. In her own words, when you’re on a budget, “paint is your friend.”

Sleek and stylish, this master bathroom looks like an “after” before the makeover even begins. The space includes all necessary amenities but in HGTV fan isabellaandmaxrooms’ own words, it “lacked personality.”

Cramped, bland and a bit neglected, HGTV fan jupiter926 actually used the term “gross” to describe this bathroom. We don’t think it’s quite that bad — but it could definitely use a makeover.

Modern Styling To give the bathroom a designer look on a budget, Kate skipped the standard-issue medicine cabinet. Instead she hung an oversize framed mirror above the sink. Get the Look: Place a framed mirror over the sink to give the bathroom a custom look and make the room seem larger. The larger the mirror, the more light and color it reflects.

Surprisingly, she reports that this was her first time tiling. Looks like a job well done!

Before the bathroom’s renovation, the bathtub surround was a fleshy pink hue. For just $175, Karin resurfaced the tub and gave the bathroom a modern look. The white porcelain gives the bathtub a neutral backdrop that goes with this color scheme and those of future homeowners. The cream shower curtain with tan geometric shapes adds even more modern flair to the bathroom.

Storage is essential in a tiny bathroom, so to add interest to the bathroom storage, Karin mixed methods. Shallow floating shelves hang behind a deeper, narrower unit with glass shelves. The floating shelves helped bridge the awkward space between the shelving unit and the sink cabinet.
