With interior design being the hot topic for most people these days, and everyone wanting their homes to look and feel their best and show off their personalities, it can be hard to know where to begin on your renovation/makeover journey. Many seem to start with the areas most seen by guests or that are lived in the most such as the living room or kitchen. However, this means places like the bathroom often get missed out and forgotten about.
Providing you aren’t thinking about completely ripping it out and starting again, the bathroom can actually be one of the cheaper rooms to re-decorate. Bathrooms tend to be one of the smallest rooms in the house and therefore don’t have a lot of extra space for accessories and clutter, making them pretty quick and easy to bring a new lease of life to. If you do decide to go full force and start fresh, you have the option of doing it yourself if you are feeling a bit handy, or hiring kitchen and bathroom remodeling services to do the hard work for you. Here, however, we look at some of the low-cost ways you can give your bathroom a new lease of life while you save up for that big dream remodel!
For example, if you do not have the budget to get a new bathroom set, perhaps you could just get some new taps for the bath and the sink. A speedy and simple way to change the look and feel of your bathroom without having to do too much to it. There are multiple styles and types you can go for – we particularly love the new trend for waterfall taps!
In the spirit of coordination within the bathroom, it is essential to emphasize your own personality within the space. Sure, the look and feel of the room and achieving your dream bathroom are essential, but what about the accessories? For example, having towels to match the rugs on the floor can quickly and simply transform the room and give it a much more luxurious feel. The little touches you make to a room can make such a big difference, and they really do not have to cost you the earth! Perhaps you could add a bit of depth to the room by adding some plants…or even just one, hanging from the corner of the ceiling, or on top of a cupboard, with its greenery hanging down the side. Succulents are a big trend at the moment and are low maintenance as well.
Shower Curtains or Screens
These get a lot of wear and tear and are one of the first things to show age and make the room look tatty. You can pick up a decent shower curtain for just a few pounds, making it something that you can easily change every few months. Glass screens are obviously a little more expensive, but a brand new one can make all the difference to your bathroom.
Perhaps your bathroom rug has seen better days, fraying at the edges and a bit bobbly in places. Well now is a good time as any to spruce up your bathroom and give it the TLC it deserves by investing in a good quality bath mat or rug. Something you can really sink your toes into after a nice relaxing bath. It might seem like a boring purchase, but you won’t regret it after you see the difference it makes, to only to the look of your bathroom but to how much your toes love it as well!
For a more 4-Dimensional touch, perhaps a subtle fragrance could be considered in the form of some potpourri or reed diffusers, or even a candle. Scents such as tropical fruits seamlessly transform a plain bathroom into an exotic living space, or if that is not your thing, perhaps you could do it with some aromatic bath soaps to accentuate the luxurious ambience of the room…and to hide any other smells!
In the fast-paced world, we live in these days, controlling our use of the very limited, and precious, free time we do have is vital; therefore, practicality becomes key. Having something as simple as a linen or clothes basket in the bathroom for all your dirty clothes will help you to keep it looking clean and tidy, but also make it easier to deal with your clothes when it comes to washing them. Although it is mostly about making your home look beautiful, it is also about practicality as well!
