Perhaps one of the most expensive rooms in the house to renovate is the bathroom. Most bathroom fixtures are expensive, including faucets, bathtubs, tiles, and/or heated rain showers. If your drab bathroom is bringing you down, we are sharing simple and budget-friendly ways to spruce up the bathroom and create a luxe, stylish space:
Add a Stool
Ever notice how most upscale bathrooms come with a beautiful seating of sorts? You can create a stylish bathroom simply by adding a stool too! This works if you have medium to large sized bathroom. Simply find a spot to place a turfed ottoman or a colorful armchair and you are done. If you have a small bathroom, you can get the same look by placing a simple garden stool in the corner.
Carefully choosing stylish jars improves the aesthetic of a bathroom. This works especially if you have a vanity inside the bathroom. Go for large or medium-sized decorative glass jars and use it to store cotton balls, cotton swabs, and bath salts. Get pump-up glass jars and transfer your shampoo, bath gel, or makeup remover in these jars. You can also use a beautiful tumbler to keep your toothbrushes or a decorative box to keep small knick-knacks.
Throw in a Beautiful Rug
One way to ruin the look of a bathroom is a frayed, dirty, or outdated bath mat. Old, dirty mats can make the bathroom look unkempt and plain. Why not brighten up your bathroom by throwing in a beautiful rug, perhaps a Turkish rug or tufted wool rug? If you want to add a pop of color to your bathroom, go for rugs that come in eye-catching patterns or vivid colors. The key here is to add personality to the bathroom while giving a flair of sophistication too.
Updating the Mirror
A plain, generic mirror does not make much impact in the bathroom. It can make your bathroom plain, outdated, and without character. Spruce up the bathroom with a carefully chosen mirror. A stylish mirror will add more personality to your living space. You can shop at flea markets and discount stores to check out affordable mirrors. You can even give your old mirror a fresh update by polishing up your DIY skills! Really, there are so many ways to add pizzazz to an old (but usable) bathroom mirror.
Dress the Walls
A fresh coat of paint is one of the simplest and easiest ways to breathe life back into a living space. You can also take your remodeling a notch higher by installing wallpaper to transform the walls. Go for colors that are eye-catching without being gaudy. The color or patterns should not overwhelm the space or clash with the fixtures.
Adding well-chosen accessories to your bathroom is a great way to create a luxurious space too! You can use scented candles, bottles of perfumes, or beautiful trays to add a touch of elegance to your bathroom. You can also put your bath salts or wax melts to warm up your bathroom space.
A little color-coordination goes a long way. And no, you don’t have to repaint the entire bathroom to do this. Instead of using mismatched towels, why not invest in hand towels or bath towels in matching colors? You can also get hand towels and bath towels in complementing colors to play up the look of your bathroom!
