Most renters, at some point or another, have put up with an ugly bathroom. From pink tile to laminate countertops to an overabundance of frosted glass, revamping an out-of-date bathroom can be a real challenge when reno isn’t an option. Fortunately, there are plenty of non-permanent ways to upgrade your bathroom. Scroll on for six of our favorite furniture and decor picks.
1. Brass toilet paper holder from Lulu & Georgia, $44
When you can’t fix the big things, focus on the details. The toilet paper holder is an often overlooked item, but one that your guests will notice every time they take a seat. This solid brass and oak wood design would add a hint of personality to a small powder room.
2. 4040 Locust Toures Shower Curtain from Urban Outfitters, $49
Replacing your shower curtain is the easiest way to change up the look of your bathroom. The geo-inspired pattern on this curtain doesn’t overwhelm the eye, but the tassells at the bottom are an unexpected touch.
3. RÅGRUND from IKEA, $49.99
It’s a chair *and* a towel rack! The seat can serve as a shelf for toiletries or a place to park your behind when you’re too lazy to stand while brushing your teeth.
4. Gem Glass Soap Pump from Target, $9.99
The Nate Berkus line at Target is a treasure trove of affordable, modern pieces. This soap pump features sturdy, faceted glass and a gold accent top.
