When it comes to improving a bathroom, many options are expensive and over the top. However, you don’t have to spend a lot to transform a bathroom into a beautiful space. Try some of these ideas to make your bathroom pop.
Improve the Cabinets
Cabinets are one of the first things to look dated in a bathroom. Depending on the finish of your cabinets, you have different options for improving their appearance. For wood cabinets, you can strip the current finish and add a modern-colored finish. You can also sand down the cabinets and paint them any color you like. If you have a smooth-faced cabinet, switching out the hardware is a simple step to make them look more modern.
Step Up with Lighting
Adding different lighting in a bathroom can change the appearance significantly. Get rid of overhead lighting (except over the mirror) and switch it out with mood lighting, such as LED lamps or another energy-saving light source. Changing the fixtures can also change the appearance of a bathroom and make it more beautiful.
Create a Mood
If your bathroom doesn’t have a specific theme, you can easily make it more inviting by using a theme in the room. You can create a mood by using specific colors, objects, and styles. Bathrooms work best when light colors are used, as dark colors can change the lighting and make it difficult to use the mirror effectively. However, there are many light themes you can try, such as a zen garden, Paris boudoir, or beach house. Adding small accents of themed art or decorative objects can help carry the mood or theme.
Just like with any other room, removing clutter will significantly make your bathroom more inviting and beautiful. Create a designated space for dirty laundry and hide unsightly items (like hair care products, toilet paper, or cleaning products) inside cabinets. Anything that you do not use every day, place in a cabinet and hide it away from view. If you haven’t used something in a year, you can throw it away to save space.
To keep your bathroom uncluttered, you will need to organize. Purchasing some small bins to hold odds and ends in the bathroom will help you keep things clean and organized. Create a specific place for everything in the bathroom so that you can find it with ease. Keep your bins easy to access or you will never use them. Make the things you use most often easy to locate.
Add Extra Elegance
For an additional elegant touch in the bathroom, small changes can make a big difference. Switching out floor tiles for new adds a touch of modern class. Covering the floor with a nice rug can make the room feel warmer. Switch out old-fashioned faucets and knobs for modern designs to instantly update the entire room. Replace a small mirror with a bigger version to make the space appear larger.
Making your bathroom more attractive is not difficult, and does not take as much money as you might fear. With a little ingenuity and do-it-yourself spirit, your ugly bathroom will look beautiful and sparkling once again.
