8 Inexpensive Ways to Revamp Your Bathroom
Eight clever ways to make your bathroom look expensive.
- Add a shower door
Shower doors can give your bathroom a facelift instantly. Apart from increasing its aesthetic appeal, it also separates the shower area from the rest of the bathroom, thus preventing water overflow. They’re available in many varieties including framed, frameless, bi-fold and curved doors. Choose the one best suited to your washroom’s space to give it a chic appearance.
- Paint the walls one colour
Just like ‘too many cooks spoil the broth’, too many colours can mar the look of your bathroom. That’s why it’s wise to stick to one colour palette to create a style statement. In that way you create continuity in your bathroom without crowding it. For this reason, selecting a neutral colour like white is a good idea for smaller rooms, whereas grey or beige works best for larger ones.
- Lay down a colourful rug
Can you ever go wrong with decorative accessories like area rugs? They’re affordable and instantly add colour and texture to a room. They’re also the perfect way to keep the rest of your bathroom dry when stepping out of the shower as they’re made of moisture-absorbent materials like wool, cotton and nylon. When you buy a rug, pick one with fringes to add charm to the space.
- Install visually-appealing hardware
We all need enough space to store our essentials. That’s where cabinets play a major role. Instead of boring ones, try white cabinets with eye-catching hardware like rose gold handles. You can also select bathroom fixtures in the same colour to maintain visual parity. If you don’t like rose gold, gold and brass finish hardware are also trendy options.
- Hang a pendant light and affix sconces
Lighting is important when it comes to decorating. With pendant lights and sconces, you can light up your bathroom and add charm to it. Pendant lights are suspended by a chain hung from the ceiling, making them appropriate for both modern and traditional décor styles. Sconces, on the other hand, are sleek and can be placed on either side of a mirror above the vanity.
- Invest in a mirror
Mirrors are one of the best home décor accessories as they look regal. They also create an illusion of more space, thus opening up the room. Available in a large variety of styles, including framed, frameless, hanging and pivot options, they add an edge to any bathroom. If you want to bring an antique touch to yours, select framed ones; for modern décor, frameless and pivot mirrors are better options.
- Use floating shelves
Floating shelves are ideal if you want to create depth, detail and character. Select one wall – for instance, if you have space above the toilet – and affix these wooden shelves to keep your toiletries and other essentials. You can also keep a few home décor accessories such as candles, vases and photo frames to complement the space.
- Consider tile flooring
Buying natural stone can burn a hole in your pocket; tile, less so. They’re hardy as well as water and stain resistant which makes them a preferred option for bathroom flooring. Furthermore, they come in countless iterations, ranging from unique shapes to bright or matte colours. Hence, this type of flooring can blend in well with any décor type, including both modern and traditional. For instance, choose thin, sleek tiles in colours like emerald green or royal blue and balance it with white walls.
These eight fabulous décor tips prove that you don’t need to invest hugely to give a wealthy-looking touch to your bathroom. Select the ideas you like the most, plan smartly and implement them at the earliest to gift yourself the bathroom that you have always dreamt about.
