In the world of home renovations, the bathroom is often left off the list. Largely because it’s seen as either too big of a job to complete or one which is far too expensive. And while a total remodel is likely to cost you a good deal of money, there are plenty of other ways to update the style in your bathroom without the need to move out for a remodel.
Below are some tips to help you do just that.
Start With New Paint
For some reason, homeowners just accept that their bathroom walls are going to be the same color for the entirety of their homeownership. And while it’s true that you will need to choose something that complements any tiles you have, it doesn’t mean that you have to stick with solid white.
Instead, look for more comforting colors, such as a deep orange or even a rich brown which can provide a more welcoming and comforting feeling to your bathroom and make it a more inviting space to spend your morning and evening routines. If you are feeling daring, consider painting patterns on your wall.
Change Your Lighting
The chances are that you are still lighting your bathroom with a single globe in the middle of your ceiling. At best, you’ve swapped it out for an energy saving bulb. Either one, it isn’t flattering.
Instead, swap it for a direction installation with multiple bulbs. These are very cost effective and easily installed without the need to complete a trade-degree and allow you to more accurately direct light around your bathroom. If you can, pair this option with a dimmer switch to make the space even more intimate.
Of course, if you are stuck with just the single bulb, at the least swap it for a smart bulb. Apart from the regular setting, these bulbs can also be adjusted to display a dimmer level of light, remove colors from the light they are emitting, or change their color entirely.
New Accessories and Items
If you have ever drooled over the towels and bathroom accessories in the Groupon Coupons page for Sam’s Club then now is the perfect time to click the button. Take a look through your bathroom and the items in it and consider what can be replaced. For example, while your hair dryer may still work, if it’s seen better days, consider giving yourself an upgrade. The same goes for any other electrical items in your bathroom.
While you are at it, be sure to refresh all of your cosmetics and replace them with luxurious options instead.
