bathroomIf you walk into your bathroom each morning and think to yourself, "Gee, I sure wish this space was a little bit more fresh and inviting," you most definitely aren't alone.

But that doesn't mean you still can't spruce things up to at least make you feel like your bathroom has been totally redone.

Here are six simple and affordable ways to turn your bathroom into a space you never want to leave. (Well ... almost never.)

5New Mirrors or Fixtures

Hang a shelf or two on the wall and adorn them with your favorite knick-knacks to make your bathroom a more personal space. Throwing a couple pictures up on the walls will give it a face lift too.
