You may not spend much time in your bathroom but it is as important as any other room in your house. Bathrooms serve a number of functions but generally have more limited space. This can be a challenge when decorating this room so here are a few tips that you can consider.
1. Maximize storage space
Aim to make every inch count. You can add floating shelves and cabinets where you can store bathroom essentials and prevent a cluttered space.
2. Light it up
Similar to any room in your house, good lighting is essential for the bathroom. You can let in natural light by using translucent curtains. For tasks like shaving and applying makeup, install lights at the top and sides of the mirror for optimum lighting. You can also provide other sources of light for the tub or shower if needed.
3. Brighten up the paint
Use light colors for majority of the surfaces in your bathroom to create a sense of a bigger space. You can still use darker colors for accents and to add pops of color to avoid a dull looking bathroom.
4. Install art pieces
Artworks need not be limited to bedrooms and living rooms. Choose water resistant prints or create your own customized piece for a more personal touch. You can also try unusual wall decorations such as shells or ceramic pieces.
5. Upgrade old hardware
Change drawer handles, towel bars, toilet paper handles, and similar items especially if they are starting to rust or change in color. This simple task may seem insignificant but the little change it offers can add to the new and fresh feel of your bathroom. Just make sure that the new and old hardware have similar sizes to prevent more problems in making or covering up screw holes.
Aside from its most obvious uses, the bathroom can also provide a soothing and relaxing escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. With the limited floor space, this room can be challenging to redecorate. But with careful planning and these few tips, you can create a bathroom that will suit your needs.
1. Optimize your lighting
A brightly lit bathroom with the right shade of paint can make the space look bigger than it actually is so take time to choosing colors you prefer. It is also important to plan where you will put light fixtures to ensure that you get light where you need it. You should also take advantage of natural light by using translucent curtains.
2. Create more storage
Add additional shelves where you can store bathroom essentials. Make use of all available spaces but make sure not to make your bathroom overly cramped with storage. You can also try making do-it-yourself organizers for makeup and other accessories from recycled stuff.
3. Install a work of art
Bathroom walls can be a bit boring so spice it up with artworks. You can create your own piece or you can purchase water resistant prints to hang on your walls. If you want more non-traditional decoration, you can use shells or ceramics and use plants to add some color and life to your bathroom.
4. Change your flooring
There are already a lot of available options to enhance your bathroom flooring. These are readilyavailable in home improvement stores and are easy to install.
5. Upgrade your bathroom’s hardware
An easy way to improve the general look of your bathroom is to replace old and rusty drawer handles, towel bars, toilet paper handles and other similar hardware. Ensure that these replacements are identical to the size of the original to avoid any problems.
