If your New Year's resolution is giving your outdated bathroom a modern update, you're in luck. You don't necessarily have to break the bank to transform your powder room into a spa-like oasis. In fact, a few simple tips can give your bathroom a gorgeous new look. Check out the suggestions below:

  • Add amenities: Be sure that your bathroom is stocked with the necessities—soap, shampoo and even a comfy robe—for you and your house guests. You can even add candles or flowers to the mix. 
  • Decorate your windows: Window treatments can take any room from drab to fab, so don't overlook the importance of these fixtures when redecorating your bathroom. Whether you choose blinds, Roman shades or sheer curtains is up to you.
  • Give your room a good scrub: The key to creating a polished powder room is to have it exude five-star cleanliness. If your shower curtain is getting moldy, toss it out and replace it. Take your throw-rugs to the laundromat and wipe down windows and mirrors.
  • Put all your towels into one basket: "Not all of us have closet space to dedicate to linens, or much room in our cabinets. However, fluffy white towels always look nice left out," writes Houzz.com contributor Becky Harris. "Roll them up neatly and organize them in a basket."
