Renovating is a costly affair, especially when it comes to the bathroom (maybe that’s why most of us tend to leave the space as it is – dull and boring!). But, we are here to tell you that you don’t need to fork out money to infuse the space with some serious personality. Here are 9 ways to turn your bathroom from drab to fab.
1. Add a chair
If you think that furniture is only for the living area of the house, think again!
Here’s a trick of the trade to give your bathroom an uber-luxe feel: If it is fairly spacious, add some seating to it -be it a garden stool, a tufted ottoman, or even a side chair. Not only does the chair add extravagance to the space, but also offers you the perfect perch when brushing your teeth or running your bath.
2. Contain yourself
What makes a bathroom appear dull and dated? Clutter! Tackle clutter by containing all your toiletries in pretty boxes. Keep the cotton balls in a mason jar and store the toothbrushes in a beautiful holder. Trust us; this tried-and-tested trick will instantly tidy up the space, making your bathroom appear plush.
3. Swap the bath mat
A dirty or tired bathroom mat will surely make your bathroom look shabby. So, if you have one, change it at once! And don’t just settle for the usual mats, instead replace your ordinary bath mats with a Turkish or Persian rug. The rug’s bright patterns and hues are sure to imbue character and elegance to your bathroom. But you’ll need to keep your bathroom dry!
4. Install an ornate mirror
With so many varieties of mirrors available in the market, it is almost sad to see how many of us settle for a basic builder-grade mirror. Instead, opt for something that is truly unique (just like you!).
5. Sprinkle some copper
Think of replacing some (if not all) of your chrome-finished faucets with copper or gold finished ones to lend personality to your bathroom.
6. Add plants
If you are a serial plant killer, then the bathroom is the ideal space to add some green goodness. It is because many plants thrive in a warm and humid environment of a bathroom. Consider installing hanging plant varieties from the ceiling, or window frames, or adding a few colorful pots with aloe vera or bamboo to the countertop.
7. Dress up a wall
Although wallpaper can be a time-consuming affair, the end result is worth it. If your bathroom is in need of some panache, investing in a few rolls of wallpaper can be life-altering. Try it!
8. Include statement lighting
Bathroom lighting is one key element that many tend to overlook (Maybe because it was already there when you moved in). There are some really gorgeous bathroom lighting options available, that can take your decor a leg up without burning a hole in your pocket.
9. Hang artwork
Art belongs everywhere, even in the bathroom! So, don’t be hesitant to add some unique and interesting artwork to give your bathroom a dose of cheer.
