One of the bathrooms we love the most is this inspiring area owned by Marilu and Caloy Gutierrez. As seen in this photo, the black-and-white portrait of Audrey Hepburn makes the space stand out. However, if you can't afford a mosaic tile-covered wall just yet, there is no need to fret! There are many reasonably priced ways to make your private haven even more beautiful.

Here are our 7 favorite bathroom decorating ideas that cost P500 or less.

Replace the shower curtain

For this tiny T&B, interior designer Ben Francis Nasayao used a quirky shower curtainit's literally the elephant in the room.

This just proves that the easiest way to improve your bathroom (even a small one) is to change the old shower curtain. 

Find new hand towels

Looking for another quick way to update the bathroom? Replace your ratty, discolored, and butas-butas hand towels!

Bring in potted plants

Make your bathroom seem lively by using cacti or succulents! Just choose the smaller ones and leave them near the window.

Place twigs in a jar

No green thumb? No problem! Real Living associate stylist Tala Singson shares that you can simply gather twigs or leaves and keep them in a glass vase.

Place toiletries on a tray

Instead of storing your products in plastic containers, display them on the prettiest tray that you can find.

Transfer your bath products

You can also pour the contents of mismatched bottles into identical containers for a neat and polished look. 

Personalize your wall mirror

If you have more time, you can jazz up your existing bathroom mirror with a fresh coat of paint. This will make an old piece seem brand new again.
