In the quest to make your home more and beautiful, it's understandable if you leave your bathrooms in the lurch. After all, these rooms pale in comparison to your living room or dining room in terms of size, and bathrooms serve a utilitarian purpose while other rooms are purely for enjoyment purposes. However, making improvements to your bathroom can increase your home's value, and it also enhances the experience that you, your family, or your guests have upon visiting this part of your house. Since I understand that picking out the right ways to improve your bathroom can be hard, I'll share a few of my top bathroom update tips with you.
Add Some Wallpaper
While it doesn't cost much, wallpaper can bring a lot of value to your bathroom. When it comes to wallpaper, you have thousands of designs to choose from, which means that you can make your bathroom purely your own. Whichever design you pick, you'll find that this colorful addition to your bathroom brings out features like towels, medicine cabinets, and mirrors. If you want, you can even make your own wallpaper using pictures from a vintage book and a special type of adhesive.
Hang a New Mirror
The mirror in your bathroom is one of this room's most functional aspects. It's the tool you use to make sure that you're presentable for the day, and guests might take a quick look in the mirror before they return to the party. If your bathroom's mirror is beaten up, outdated, or simply boring, you can replace this fixture with a stylish and elegant mirror. To save money, you can check out the options at home recycling centers or thrift stores.
Install Some Elegant Light Fixtures
If you have adequate lighting in your bathroom, all of the impressive and colorful features you've installed will shine out the clearer. On the other hand, installing more light fixtures or updating the fixtures that you already have can become an end in and of itself. While a full-scale dining chandelier might look out of place in your bathroom, smaller light fixtures with dangling crystal would look right at home. Also, you might want to replace the vanity lamps above your mirror with retro light fixtures sourced from an antique store.
Build Your Own Towel Rack
Towel racks aren't usually expensive, but you can avoid the minimal cost of these fixtures by building your own. You can use many different types of materials to build your towel racks, and some great options include driftwood and reclaimed stainless steel. Once your handmade towel racks are in place, you can bedeck them with brightly colored towels that add some extra life to your bathroom aesthetics.
Replace Your Countertops
If you choose to replace the countertops in your bathroom, you'll find that this undertaking produces breathtaking results. The best part about replacing your countertops is that it doesn't have to be expensive; you can often find a remnant granite slab by contacting granite workers in the area. Once you've acquired your slab, all you'll need to do to set up the bathroom countertop of your dreams is cut and surface it to perfection.
Increase Your Shower Power
A normal showerhead is great, but you can improve your shower experience tenfold by installing a detachable showerhead below your normal showerhead. While you're at it, you might as well replace your main showerhead with a rain-style showerhead. These types of heads are installed high up on your shower, and they drop warm water down on your head in a way that simulates the effects of being caught out in a comfortable deluge.
Store in Style
Storage doesn't have to be boring. It's easy and cheap to update our bathroom by installing unique storage options. You might want to paint the inside of your medicine cabinet bright blue, or you may choose to build wide, colorful cabinets above your toilet. It's even possible to build a relatively bland storage rack and fill it with a bunch of colorful items.
Add Some Shades
Do you still have the same boring blinds on your bathroom windows that were there when you bought your house? Mixing things up with Roman shades or Venetian blinds might be just the thing to add a little bit of flair to your bathroom. Just make sure to pick blinds that match all of the colorful bathroom decorations that you've picked out.
