We get it — RV bathroom renovations are expensive.
The thought of ripping out your old toilet or shower to install a new one can be a daunting task.
While you might have already calculated an approximate cost for taking out and installing new fixtures, a toilet, and a shower, you never know what might lie underneath. If any of your existing pipes or plumbing need to be updated or modified, you’re looking at spending even more money than you had originally planned on spending.
That brings us back to our first point — bathroom renovations are expensive.
If you’re not ready to do a full-blown RV bathroom makeover, there is one aspect of your bathroom you can easily change for an instant facelift without breaking the bank: the decor.

As we mentioned, ripping out and putting in new fixtures can be costly and time-consuming. An easier way to achieve a beautiful interior look for your RV bathroom is by spray painting older fixtures to help them look new again.
You can even spray paint your toilet and your sink with the right spray paint matched correctly to the material.
Add some newer elements

What’s an updated interior without some new bathroom elements like towels and a shower curtain? These can make a huge difference in making the space look fresh.
Fun Tip: Invest in a wine rack to use as a towel holder in your bathroom to save space and optimize storage.
Brighten up those walls

Dark walls are doing you no good inside a small RV bathroom.
The truth is: dark colours in a small space tend to make the space look smaller and more cramped than it really is. Pick a light paint colour and brighten that little bathroom up — you’ll almost instantly notice a change!
Opt for vinyl plank flooring

No need to rip out your existing flooring — vinyl plank flooring will easily stick overtop of those old tiles of yours. Once purchased, each section can easily be cut to fit all curves and corners of your bathroom. The new flooring will work with the light paint colour to brighten up the entire space and make it appear larger.
The best part? The planks are also waterproof!
Throw in a backsplash

Adding a backsplash behind your sink is really going to give your RV bathroom a modern touch. This can easily be achieved through the use of Smart Tiles.
Just like vinyl flooring, all you have to do is cut, peel and stick! Violà — a totally transformed bathroom.
