When was the last time you thought about bathroom redecorating? The bathroom is often the most neglected room in the house. While the living room is regularly redecorated, the bedroom furniture is routinely moved around, and the kitchen reorganized every season, the bathroom is usually kept the same year after year. This is a shame because the bathroom holds vital importance in the house. When you have visitors, you don’t want them to be uncomfortable when they use it. Here are a few quick ideas to freshen up the bathroom that are practically effortless.
Clear up the clutter
It’s not nice for anyone to look at the various bottles of shampoo, conditioner, shower gel, and facial cleansers taking up space on the tub and sink. If your bathroom lacks the space to store everything properly, invest in a multilevel fruit basket or shelves to store in the corner of the bath. Take an unused nightstand and use it to store towels, makeup, and toiletries. If you have the storage of a linen closet or vanity, keep personal toiletries out of sight. If not, you can easily buy super cute storage bins to keep them hidden away. Once the clutter is stored away, it suddenly becomes easier to keep the bathroom clean, or even add a few more decorative touches.
A fresh coat of paint
By painting the walls a calming color, you have not only refreshed the overall look of the room, but have also taken the first step to turning your bathroom into a relaxing sanctuary. You’ll enjoy spending long, luxurious bubble baths in here if the painted walls are conducive to relaxation. Speaking of improving the look of the room, make sure your new color complements the bathroom countertops. Maybe invest in some darker ones to offset the brightness of the newly painted walls.
Change your shower curtain
Changing the curtain is not purely so you can get a new one to go with the new color scheme. There is not set time period for how often you should change your shower curtain, but you should do it if they’ve developed a buildup of mildew, mold, or scum. It’s neither pleasant to look at, or hygienic. To put off having to replace it again, make sure your bathroom has proper ventilation, and check to see if your shampoo or body wash are causing more soap scum buildup.
Redecorate existing tile
If you’re not a fan of your bathroom tiles, but want a quick, easy, affordable fix, try using removable adhesive tiles to give the room a makeover. They’re easy to cut and install, and when you feel like redecorating again, just use the heat of a hairdryer to help peel them off. The best part is that they won’t damage the surface behind them.
Once the main work is complete, add a few personal touches to make the bathroom unique to your home. Put in some small flowers, water-resistant canvases, or scented candles ready to go for a relaxing bath. Everyone will love what you have done with the room.
