It’s rarely the “right” time to renovate. The mess, the stress, and of course the cost make renovating seem like a daunting task. (Of course, it always feels worth it at the end of the day)! However, if you’re anything like us, you probably get the urge to change things up every once in a while. A fresh coat of paint, a new piece of furniture, or some new artwork from your favourite gallery can make a world of difference in your home. If you’re itching to shake things up, why not try out these awesome ideas for a bathroom mini-makeover?
1. Start with Lights!
Changing up the lights in your bathroom can make a world of difference. Try out different fixtures, placements, and bulb types to get the right feel. (Hint: if you’re trying to mimic natural lighting, try GE Reveal Halogen or LED bulbs). Using mirrors and light paint colours can also help make a tiny bathroom feel larger!
2. Add Proper Storage
One of the best ways to de-clutter a messy bathroom is by adding tall, compact storage units. Thin, multi-level storage provides plenty of shelves for things like extra towels, soaps, or toiletry bags. Adding a few durable plants (like succulents or air plants) to one or two shelves also helps the room feel more fresh. If you’re pressed for floor space, look for hanging shelves that take advantage of unused wall space. There are even units designed specifically for tight corners, to help you utilize those difficult spaces!
3. Reduce, Reuse… Repaint
If your bathroom vanity has seen better days, but you don’t want the headache of fully replacing it, consider a fresh coat of paint. A simple paint job can help this major bathroom fixture feel brand new again! Switching out any knobs or handles for shiny new ones will complete the look.
4. Replace your fixtures
There are so many great reasons to replace your shower head, the least of which being that it will look amazing! For this particular upgrade, go ahead and splurge. Your body will thank you when you get to wake up to the perfect shower! Plus, new shower heads are often more efficient, so you may just find yourself saving on your water bill.
5. Change your Shower Curtains
This one is a no-brainer. A sleek new shower curtain is an easy, inexpensive way to transform the look of your bathroom. Choose simple patterns and a colour scheme that will complement the rest of the room for the best effect. Adding hand towels that match one of these colours is another simple way to pull everything together!
With these 5 simple changes, you may just trick yourself into thinking you have a whole new renovated bathroom. The only downside: you might find yourself dreaming of mini-makeovers for every room in the house! Happy decorating.
