Quick and Easy Ways To Give Your Bathroom A MakeoverFriday, June 17, 2016
Is your bathroom up to the same standards as the rest of your house? Bathrooms are so hard to get right, sometimes they lack style and other times they're just too small and don't have space for the necessary storage. Probably the worst thing about the room is that they are hard to design; not only do they take a lot of work, but they're also expensive. Here are a few ways you can give your bathroom a makeover without too much hassle.
Add More Mirrors
Mirrors reflect light and make spaces look bigger, which is exactly what you need in a tiny room like the bathroom. Place them strategically (opposite windows usually works best) and don't be afraid to use a large statement mirror even in a small bathroom. The best thing about them is that they're cheap and only take a few minutes to install.
Fresh Coat Of Paint
Paint makes everything look nicer, even the most dated bathrooms will look better with a fresh coat of paint. Light shades will make the room look bigger so opting for a white, pastel or very light neural shade will always be your best bet in the bathroom- keep bright or bolder shades for elsewhere in the house!
Spruce Up The Fixtures
Fixtures can start to look dated just like decor can, but updating things like taps will bring a new lease of life to your bathroom and make it look much more modern. Tiles and panelling are great choices, take a look at a Showerwall sample for some ideas before taking the plunge. Alternatively give your current tiles a good clean, re-grouting or simply using a grout pen will make the entire area look a lot cleaner and fresher.
Small bathrooms suffer from a lack of storage, but you can change that with a handful of accessories. What you want are storage solutions that look good and fit your space as well as being practical. Consider using a wall mounted cabinet mirror, as well as slim and tall sets of drawers (that will offer a lot of storage without taking up too much floor space). Hooks on the back of your bathroom doors can be used to hang towels on, and shower caddies will keep all of your most used products neat and tidy.
