Our homes are our sanctuaries from the outside world, where we can escape when the working day is done. This is why it is important to freshen up the rooms in our homes and redecorate them every couple of years. With bathrooms, this is especially true as the bathroom, along with the bedroom, is a place to rejuvenate and recuperate, as well as a place where we can get clean.
However, redecorating usually costs money and if you are on a tight budget you may feel that you are not able to give it a fresh and new look. In the following article though, we look at some great tips that enable you to give your bathroom a makeover for less. As you will see, it often just takes a quick splash of paint or well-chosen accessories.
De-clutter To De-stress
Take the time to look around your bathroom and look at what you have on display and whether things could be thrown out or just stored away somewhere else. While Gucci and Chanel bottles will add a touch of sophistication and glamour to your countertops, shaving gel, and painkillers do not have the same effect and by storing them away in a drawer or cabinet you will instantly improve the look and feel of your bathroom.
Often the best ways to alter and improve how a room looks are the simplest. For instance, rather than spending unnecessary amounts of money on accessories for bathroom countertops when you can have a good look through items in different rooms and repurpose them. You don’t need to buy a fancy soap holder if you have a cute little ceramic bowl. Similarly, if you are looking for a way to display your makeup and beauty products you could use a small tray or plate.
New Coat of Paint
When it comes to actually decorating, you’d be amazed at how much of a difference just repainting the walls and ceiling could have on a room. Regardless of whether you paint it in the same color as before or in a completely new color, the room will instantly feel newer.
Replace Your Mirror
The mirror in your bathroom is important because it is probably the first place you look at yourself in the morning. Mirrors normally help also to make rooms feel bigger than they are, so it’s a good idea, even if it’s one of the only things you can afford, to replace your mirror. Instead of paying money for a new one at the local DIY or homeware store, you could look at the other mirrors already in your home and use one of those.
Replace Your Shower Curtain
While you are replacing your bathroom mirror, take a look at your shower curtain. Have you had the shower curtain for a year or more and is it not looking its best anymore? Even if it is still in good condition but you have used the same one for a long time you should still consider replacing it.
