The Budget Bathroom Upgrade: How To Refresh Your Bathroom for Under $100

It's easy to skip out on jazzing up your bathroom when you have so many other rooms (that guests see often) in your home to tackle. I get it; I'm often guilty of neglecting the space in favor of buying another throw pillow for my living room, but you shouldn't downplay the importance of outfitting your personal haven, especially if you can pick up key pieces for a total budget of under $100.

Industrial Loft

I love a good stripe; the print is an enduring classic, and when rendered in fresh gray and white, it takes on a totally modern vibe. Add matte black accents and shower rings, and you've got a perfect hip loft look.

  1. Threshold Stripe Shower Curtain Radiant - Gray at Target, $19.99
  2. Jacquard-weave Bath Mat at H&M Home, $12.99
  3. Fieldcrest Luxury Stripe Accent Bath Towels in White/Gray at Target, $12.99 each
  4. Rubber Coated Soap Pump at CB2, $4.95
  5. Rubber Coated Black Toothbrush-Razor Cup at CB2, $3.95
  6. Shower Curtain Ring Set in Flat Black at Signature Hardware, $29.95

Total Price: $97.81

Floral Boho

A little flower power goes a long way if you're after a pretty yet subdued look. Soft peaches, corals and blushes paired with a deep, neutral gray keeps florals from looking dated or stuffy.

  1. Threshold Floral Shower Curtain at Target, $24.99
  2. Jacquard-weave Bath Mat in Dark Gray at H&M Home, $17.99
  3. Aerin Floral Printed Velour Bath Towel at World Market, $16.99 each
  4. Threshold Lotion Pump - Frosted Bronze at Target, $12.99
  5. Threshold Toothbrush Holder - Frosted Bronze at Target, $9.99
  6. Solid Brass Shower Curtains 12 Pcs Hook Ring Antique Copper by Renovator's Supply at Walmart, $9.99

Total Price: $99.94

Spa Retreat

Who doesn't love the spa? Bring home the same sense of zen you get while sipping cucumber-infused water in a crisp white waffle robe with a waffle curtain and fluffy towels. Roller-ball curtain rings make your way in and out of the shower smooth and seamless.

  1. 20"x 30" Arville Bath Rug in Gray by House of Hampton at Wayfair, $26.99
  2. Chrome Shower Curtain Ring Set at Pier 1 Imports, $3.98
  3. Elegance Spa 6 Piece Towel Set in White by Affinity Linens at Overstock, $30.99
  4. Stainless Steel Soap Pump at CB2, $9.95
  5. Stainless Steel Toothbrush/Razor Cup at CB2, $5.95
  6. Total Price: $97.85

Rise & Shine

The tranquil spa look isn't for everyone; if you prefer to add a little pep to your mornings via your bathroom (anything to help you get you going at 7 a.m.!), go for pieces with a little more personality. You can't go wrong with a graphic rug featuring a fun saying, a gold confetti shower curtain and pineapple hooks. Turkish fringed towels and textured canvas bath accessories round out the happy look.

  1. Diamond Shower Curtain - Gold - Room Essentials at Target, $14.99
  2. I Woke Up Like This Bath Mat at Urban Outfitters, $29
  3. Canvas Toothbrush-Razor Cup at CB2, $5.95
  4. Canvas Soap Pump at CB2, $9.95
  5. ANKARA Made In India Fouta Bath Towel at T.J.Maxx, $12.99 each

Total Price: $95.86
