The bathroom is truly one of the most important rooms in the house. We use it every single day to maintain health and hygiene, plus get ready every morning. Although it can be a small space, the bathroom definitely has a huge impact on our daily life.
Not being able to create the bathroom of your dreams because you live in a rental or can’t afford to renovate feels unfair. It’s your home after all, and you should be able to make every square inch of it better. These doable ideas will help you pull the plug on what’s ugly without remodeling.
Nothing brightens up a boring bathroom like plants. Not only do they add beautiful pops of color, but they also freshen stale air and lift wilted spirits. Try these low-maintenance beauties: spider plant, mother-in-law’s tongue, and aspidistra.
GET A BETTER BATHROOM RUG
It’s a no-brainer, every bathroom needs a rug with a nonslip backing. But that doesn’t mean it has to look like a typical bathroom rug. Options that look like pint-sized living room rugs will add a stylish splash to a dull bathroom floor.
PRETTY SHOWER CURTAIN
Yep, we all know that a pretty shower curtain can brighten a dull bathroom. But you may not know you can use one to conceal an old shower stall.
MODERNIZE WITH BLACK FIXTURES
Add dramatic contrast to a white bathroom with black fixtures and accessories. FYI, installing a new faucet is usually an easy and also reversible update if the new fixtures fit the existing holes in the sink or countertop.
STENCILING YOUR BATHROOM WALL
When it comes to economics, wallpapering a bathroom usually costs a lot more than painting. But that doesn’t mean you have to forfeit pattern to save money.
ADD DRAMA USING ART
Eye-catching artwork hung on a wall painted a bold shade, will distract the eye away from the ugly in a small bathroom.
So you don’t have a luxurious marble bathroom. You can still make things glamorous with gold accents. Features and fixtures from a glitzy shower rod to a golden faucet, which are both typically a cinch to install and later remove on moving day.
A great way to keep a small bathroom tidy is by using a few baskets and trays to organize supplies and toiletries. Place them in you bathroom’s cabinets or install a few hanging shelves.
STYLISH TOILET PAPER HOLDER
A standing, decorative toilet paper holder will take a minimal amount of space and double up as a decorative piece. For a pop of color, choose a roller in a contrasting shade to your bathroom’s color scheme.
A modern and neutral backsplash is perfect for those who want to add texture and dimension. Combine that with hanging mirror to complete the look and make your space feel bigger.
