Our bathrooms are often the most neglected rooms in our house. We want gorgeous, spacious kitchens, sun-soaked bedrooms, and chic living rooms, but too few of us ever get excited about the bathroom. What we’re missing, however, is that the bathroom is one of the most important rooms in our house.
First of all, it is where your day begins and ends, from that early morning shower to brushing your teeth before going to bed. Secondly, though your guests may never see your bedroom, nearly all of them will see your bathroom (why not dress it up?). Finally, your bathroom can be your own private mini-spa: when you go to take an evening soak in the tub, you should have as relaxing of a space as possible.
Unfortunately, a full-scale bathroom remodel is outside the budget for many of us. So what can we do to dress up that dull bathroom without breaking the bank? Tons of things, actually. Here are six easy ways to give your bathroom a well-deserved makeover:
Update Your Bathroom Accessories
An easy way to update your bathroom is to add some new brass bathroom accessories. Swap out that sad-looking toilet paper holder. Give yourself a chic, modern soap dish. Treat yourself to a sleek new towel rack.
And why stop there? Get rid of those oh-so-boring vents in exchange for some gorgeous new floor registers or wall registers. Once you see the look of your new brass floor registers, you’ll wonder why you ever settled for that basic, boring vent.
Add Some Life—Literally!
Nothing brightens up a small space like living things namely, plants. Line your counters with bamboo for the ultimate in contemporary zen or add some romantic flowers and candles to your tub space.
Swap Out Those Old Towels
Want an easy pick-me-up? Swap out those dingy old towels for something bright and fresh. You’ll be treating yourself to some fluffy new towels while revamping your bathroom at the same time. What’s not to love?
Up the Mirror Ante
That square mirror is so blah. Perk it up with a cute frame or paint your own frame with glass etching paint or air-dry paint. Alternatively, swap out your mirror entirely for a new oval or circle bathroom mirror.
Perk Up Your Lighting
Dimly lit bathrooms aren’t romantic; they’re dreary and cavernous. How are you going to put on your makeup or style your hair in a cave? Nix the dark lights in favor of plenty of eye-pleasing lighting. If you lack windows, consider getting lighting that mimics sunshine.
Say Goodbye to Your Dreary Shower Curtain
Due to its sheer size, your shower curtain is one of the biggest statement pieces in your bathroom. Make it a strong statement by picking out a curtain that will liven up the entire room.
Giving your bathroom personality and flair is as easy as swapping out some accessories! How do you plan on giving your bathroom a future makeover?
