Paint is a cheap method that’s also versatile. Of course you can use multiple colors on your bathroom walls, but an idea that will fit nicely into your modest remodeling budget is to use painter’s tape creatively to create two-toned stripes on your walls.
Or you can use this cost saving tactic to mimic a wainscoting effect by painting one color on the bottom half of the lavatory walls and a second color on the top half.

Really, your choices with paint are endless, even though your home improvement budget is small.
