Spruce up your Bathroom
Remodeling your bathroom for under $1,000 seems like a difficult venture, right? It doesn't have to be. That's not say that you can re-do your entire bathroom, but making a few simple changes can completely change the look of your bathroom and give it a much needed makeover, all while being cost conscious.
A fresh coat of paint goes a long way.
While re-tiling is likely out of the question, adding a fresh coat of paint is step 1. Choose your color based on the size of your bathroom. If it's teeny tiny you want to stay away from deep, warm colors and go for something more light and airy, like a pale blue, cream, sage green or even white! White may seem too clinical for some, but adding in the right decor accents and hardware offsets that feel.
So, take a look at some of these ideas.
This bathroom is a bit on the small side, so the white wall color was the way to go here. Adding in blue towels, and a touch of green with a faux plant adds pops of color to offset the white. The gray painted cabinet pairs nicely as well. Navy blue would also have been a great accent color.
Another great idea here is the round wall mirror. Round mirrors in a small space create a focal point as well as serving a purpose, we all need a mirror in our bathroom! Another possible choice would have been a mirror with a bit more color, like a Gold trimmed Round Mirror.
Changing out your bathroom mirror is a great way to revamp your bathroom on a budget. Take a look at some other Hanging Wall Mirror ideas!

Replace your Vanity
There are so many options available here. If you are more of a minimalist, go for a new pedestal sink and ditch the vanity altogether.

The deep natural wood tone creates a warmth and compliments the tile nicely. And don't you just love those copper faucets?! That's another idea as well...

New Accent Furniture transforms any space!
Let's face it, you're likely not going to be able to get that gorgeous new sectional or living room set you've had your eye on unless you hit a great sale. Replacing or adding in a new accent chair is definitely within budget though. Consider adding an oversized, cozy accent chair to that bare corner of your room or swap out your old one for one in a bold accent color. Tip: Rattan or wicker chairs are an even cheaper alternative if your budget is super tight and your space has more of a boho chic or vibe.
How about some new end tables or a new coffee or console table (or both) for your living or family room? This wicker chest/coffee table and wood console table are the perfect match for this space. Adds a nice, cottage feel - don't you think?

Best of all it won’t harm your walls and, in addition to being friendly on the old piggy bank, if you change your mind it's super easy to remove.

While barn doors are characteristically country, they've become a trend in farmhouse as well as modern styled homes. Rustic barn doors have a vintage charm, while a more polished, finished wood look lends itself well to any modern or even traditional home. Aside from creating a focal point, barn doors are an easy way to add separation to bathrooms, closets, bedrooms ... any room in your home. And when paired with a shiplap wall.. .well... you be the judge...

Add in some other farmhouse inspired decor as well, like the 3 tiered metal tray above.
