When it comes to bathroom renovations, homeowners often see it as an all or nothing affair. If they aren’t going to renovate the entire space then why bother with anything at all. Right? Wrong! The bathroom is one of the most personal space in your home and one where you spend a good chunk of your time ensuring that you look your best and are prepared for the day ahead.
With this in mind, instead of seeing your bathroom as a project that seems too big, consider these great ideas for small changes or additions to make your bathroom fresh again.
A Fresh Coat of Paint!
Before you start saying that repainting is a task that’s too big, consider the actual size of your bathroom and the items that you would need to move. When you are repainting a living room, for example, there are a number of large items that you need to take out. You then need to place protective plastic over any remaining furniture and the floor. Once this is done, it’s a pretty big space to paint.
Your bathroom, however, is a completely different story. There is almost nothing that you need to remove, and your wall tiles and floor are going to be easy to clean if there are any spills! Now you can see that your biggest challenge is actually choosing the new color.
Adjust Your Lighting
If you have a standard bathroom then you likely also have a standard light. That is, one bright white bulb in the center of your ceiling. This is a great DIY project where you can replace this light with a multi-fixture attachment. Match this with an appropriate dimmer and you can now create a more pleasant mood in your bathroom, along with focusing the light on where you need it the most.
Declutter Your Countertops
Easier said than done? Not necessarily. If you have a regular mirror then you have the perfect space for storage. A framed mirror provides you with a small top shelf where you can keep your lotions, whereas a storage mirror will open up and reveal more storage inside. While the space may be slim, it is more than enough for your creams and lotions.
Speaking of clutter, if your shower floor is littered with bottles or soaps and lotions then it’s time to clean it up! Instead of getting a cheap hanging storage rack that is going to rust and fall apart within three months, check out the Groupon Coupons for Bed Bath & Beyond and pick up a good quality hanging shower storage rack. Either over the shower door or the faucet, these are a great way to clean up your bathroom help make it look fresh each time you step in.
Just because you aren’t going to knock down walls doesn’t mean that you can’t change the appearance of a room. Especially your bathroom. These are just some of the great ways that you can enhance the look and feel of your bathroom. The next time you are using your bathroom and you find an annoyance, instead of just ignoring it, write it down and later think of creative ways to remove the problem.
