When it comes to redecorating and giving your home a timeless look, there is no room that gets more overlooked than the bathroom. Because bathrooms tend to be very small compared to the rest of the house, the assumption is that there’s not much you can do to redecorate unless you knock out a wall.
Believe it or not, there are a great number of ways you can spruce up your bathroom without completely remodelling. If you’re still not sold on the idea, or you just don’t like the thought of doing that much work, here are a few suggestions that you can complete in a weekend.
A fresh coat of paint
You can liven up the room by giving choosing a colour based on a theme. For example, you can make it feel like a beachfront home by painting it a deep blue colour, and using towels that are as bright as the sandy beach. If your kids love bathtime, you could paint the bathroom the same colour as their rubber ducks. By painting the walls a calming colour, you have not only refreshed the overall look of the room, but you have also taken the first step to turning your bathroom into a relaxing sanctuary. The options are as endless as your imagination.
Clear up clutter
It doesn’t look great if you have various bottles of shampoo, conditioner, shower gel, and facial cleansers taking up space on the side of the tub or around the sink. If your bathroom lacks the space to store everything properly, invest in a multilevel fruit basket or shelves to store in the corner of your bath or shower.
If you’re mostly happy with your white walls, but don’t want to commit to a fully white room, use tiles to splash some colour all over the bathroom. As an added benefit, tiles are easier to clean and maintain than paint or wallpaper, particularly when you factor in the excessive steam that will come from the shower. Tiles also last a long time and they help to maintain the air quality in the room, which is an added bonus to any bathroom. However, if you already have tiles and you aren’t happy with the colour, you don’t have to spend a lot of money on taking them down and putting up new ones. Removable adhesive tiles are quick and easy to put up, and they don’t damage the walls when you take them down. This is a great feature when you’re renting.
Change your shower curtain
There is not set time period for how often you should change your shower curtain, but you should do it if they’ve developed a buildup of mildew, mould, or scum. To put off having to replace it again, make sure your bathroom has proper ventilation, and check to see if your shampoo or body wash are causing more soap scum buildup. Additionally, changing your shower curtain is the quickest way to spruce up a bathroom.
