Decorating ideas for a refreshing bathroom

21 Mar

Embarking on a remodeling project often means time and money flying out of our pockets with the swiftness of light. But if you possess a bit o imagination and you’re willing to put your creative skills to a test, the results may be spectacular.

To keep things simple, you might want to focus your redecorating efforts on a single nook of your home, and start with the bathroom since it involves a smaller footage. And we all know that sometimes a nice hot bath after a long day at work is all that it takes to invigorate body and spirit. The good news is that you don’t need mega-bucks to turn your bathroom into a soothing retreat.

First thing if you live in a rental, check with your landlord what you can and cannot do with the space. Most landlords or property owners understand the renters’ need to make a few adjustments to the place for a more comfortable feel, and generally allow minor remodeling projects like changing a bulb or the wattage, applying a fresh coat of paint, hanging decorations to revive the walls, or updating window treatments.

Then take a moment and assess your daily adventures in the bathroom, especially your morning routine. Are there times when you can’t seem to find anything? This means clutter is your worst enemy so you must find a way to keep things organized.

If your bathroom is already furnished, think of bringing in a couple of pretty baskets, an over the door organizer (as pictured below) or dividers to retain your toiletries. The best part about these systems is that you can throw everything inside and your bathroom still looks neat and tidy.

Accessories are life-changing when it comes to enhancing bathroom space. For a classier look, install a sleek towel bar, a nice soap holder or lotion dispenser. Make sure you complement the décor with some bright fabrics that make a statement. If your bathroom is cloaked in neutrals, get some red towels or patterned shower curtains for a splash of color and energy.

Hardware is pretty expensive to replace, no need to go there. But the shower head is totally worth it and you’ll be able to take it with you once you get on the road again. Featuring innovative designs and appealing functions, high-quality shower heads can instantly transform a bathroom into a cool spa, inviting to relaxation and pampering treatments.

Some nice pieces of wall art can totally add appeal to a drab space. Even if you don’t have a lot to spend on artwork, you can still have some pictures printed out, fit them in a thrift store frame and hang them on the bathroom wall. The results will be stunning!
