Redecorating your bathroom does not have to be difficult or expensive. Tropical bathroom decor is not only easy to do, but it will give a lift to a tired room and turn it into a relaxing retreat.

Whether you are planning on redoing the entire room or just replacing a few key pieces does not matter. This article presents a top to bottom make-over that can be followed step by step or done piecewise.

The most important feature of a tropical room is the color scheme. When choosing colors, use photos from tropical locations for reference. There should be a range of blues, greens, earth tones, and pinks. To create a relaxing environment, choose a muted overall color like a sky blue or a textured pale peach that will gift the feel of being in a beach resort.

A mural in this case is also an option. A strategically placed mural of palms, beaches, birds, or fish can give the room an authentic feel. This is only a project that should be undertaken if you feel comfortable with it, however, as it can prove to be difficult and messy for those with poor painting skills.

Replacing tile can be expensive so if it will not match, consider painting it with a waterproof paint. It can be done successfully if the right paint and the right steps are followed.

The part that is really going to start to make your bathroom feel like a tropical paradise is the accessories. This does not have to be expensive. You would be surprised how many great finds you can come across in thrift, discount, and dollar stores. If you have time, take a day to visit the local yard sales in your area.
