Being the smallest room in the house, the bathroom is usually the least of our decorating concerns. However, we fail to consider that it’s the one room that will be used by everybody, owners and guests alike. Hence, having a stylish and functional bathroom is an absolute necessity. If you think your bathroom is in desperate need of a facelift, here are some tips to help you transform it into the beautiful space it deserves to be.
Small Touches Can Have a Big Impact
Refreshing your bathroom doesn’t have to cost a fortune. Keep tiles, cabinetry, the bathtub and other major elements as they are, and instead focus on the small items. Store your soap on a marble dish instead of on the sink, stash your toothbrush in a beautiful container, switch out the plastic toilet holder with a wooden or metal one. Not only will these cute bathroom accessories help neaten up your bathroom, but they will also add a more luxe feel to it.
Make a Statement with a Mirror
A bathroom always needs a mirror, but it’s sad how many of us settle for the outdated medicine cabinets. Instead of letting the mirror sink into the back, why not bring it to the front by choosing a bold design. A mirror with some personality can elevate the look and feel of your bathroom. Pick a different shape instead of the classic oval one, or get a mirror with a ring of LED lights around it. Anything out of the ordinary will certainly make a stylish statement. And in the case of bathroom mirrors, bigger is always better as it can serve as a way to bring more light into a small, enclosed space.
Introduce Unique Storage
You might think “But where will I keep my things unless in a medicine cabinet?” Don’t worry, by adding shelving to your bathroom you can maximize your storage space. You can wall-mount cubicle shelves and add cute woven baskets to stash small toiletries out of sight. If you still feel like you don’t have enough storage, consider adding a vintage buffet or a chest if you have the space. Not only do storage solutions help you keep clutter at bay, but they also serve as another interesting bathroom element.
Make It More Inviting
Being utilitarian spaces by nature, bathrooms can often feel too cold. Warm yours up by adding that can bring the much-needed spa feel to it. For instance, an aromatherapy diffuser with your favourite essential oil blend can keep your bathroom fresh and beautifully scented at all times. What’s more, you can use a few drops of the same oils to prepare yourself a relaxing bath. To warm up the cold tiles, ditch the plastic mat and get yourself a nice fluffy rug that will add more sophistication to your bathroom.
