I’m an Interior Design Pro – 7 Cheap Amazon Buys I’ve Used to Make My Bathroom More Expensive
YOUR bathroom doesn’t have to be strictly utilitarian – as one interior design pro detailed, little frills can give it a luxurious upgrade.
These are the seven items she used to turn her bathroom into a spa, and you can buy them for as low as $7 on Amazon.
Lifestyle influencer Sidney Marie Duke is a pro at turning a small space into a quiet sanctuary, and she shares her home renovations on TikTok and Instagram.
A recent video shows luxury flourishes Duke has added to his bathroom, from a floor hallway to a delicate counter top.
To create an artistic and polished look, Duke decorated the blank walls of his bathroom with gold-framed art prints.
The simple line drawing is printed on a textured canvas, and it is already matted and framed. You can buy your own pair of art printsin a variety of frame sizes and colors, starting at $80.
Another fun accent is the animal print table runner that Duke uses to add a cozy layer to the bare bathroom floors. The long rug is a nice alternative to traditional small rugs in a bathroom space.
Although Duke chose a creamy cheetah print with bold black speckles, you can opt for a less traditional animal print – try muted gray or pink specks for a colorful pop. A two-by-six-foot runner starts at $32.
To give his bathroom a spa-like feel, Duke relies on a combination of candles and greenery. Aromatherapy candles and a sprig of bright leaves in a vase give the space an air of tranquility.
You don’t need to use fancy candles to achieve the same effect. Just hop on Amazon and buy a set of three candles, which arrive in a matching color gift boxfor just $19.
Plus, you can recreate Duke’s botanical accent exactly, even if you don’t have a green thumb.
The sprig of eucalyptus in her bathroom is a realistic faux plant, so you can bring the look home by adding the $10 bundle of greenery to your own Amazon cart.
Even your bathroom’s practical features can stand an overhaul, and Duke has plenty of suggestions for an aesthetically pleasing countertop.
First, decant your cotton balls and tampons in glass jarswhich only cost $7 for a set of two.
Then replace your soap dispensers with a set of sleek glass pumps on a sturdy tray.
Duke uses a resin tray, $15, to organize bar soap and liquid soap dispensers in your bathroom. You can keep your bathroom tidy by storing lotion, hair products, and even toothpaste on the shelf.
And to disguise an ugly bathroom basic, Duke uses a leatherette tissue box cover, which has a pebbly texture and comes in 13 colors.
She uses the white blanket for a minimalist look, but you can choose from a number of earth tones and pastel shades — or take advantage of the $11 price tag and buy one for every year.
