We’ve all spent a lot of time at home over the past few years, so it’s no surprise that many people are looking for ways to renovate their interior space.
Bathrooms in particular can start to look tired without proper love and care. Yet on the flip side, they are also remarkably easy to spruce up with just a few small adjustments.
If you want to create a space that you are proud to show off to guests, read on for our top tips on instantly revamping your bathroom into a relaxing, characterful and clean-feeling room.
Though requiring a little bit of effort on your part, installing fresh wall panelling in your bathroom can make it look like a totally new space. Using this type of wall décor adds character to a room, especially one that might otherwise easily feel sterile and plain. It is much easier than tiling too, meaning you will see results more quickly and you can likely have a stab at doing it yourself. If you are feeling stuck for inspiration on what kind of panelling to go for, why not visit your local bathroom showroom for inspiration and advice? You could kick off by exploring the website or browsing online design collages such as Pinterest to get an idea of your likes and dislikes and the latest trends.
If you want to instantly brighten your bathroom with minimal effort, try adding some house plants. House plants don’t only look pretty – they are also good for you as they generate better air quality and have even been found to improve mental health and energy levels. Make sure to choose your plant varieties wisely as some won’t cope well in the humid conditions of a bathroom. Bamboo and ferns are two varieties that will thrive in these conditions. Cacti also make for striking bathroom décor.
Clutter is the enemy of a sleek-looking bathroom, so one way to spruce up your space is to simply tidy it. It is easy to let old bottles, products and other bits and bobs accumulate around your bathroom, so make sure to take these out and recycle them when you are organising the space. If you find that you have a lot of products to store, particularly if you have had them for a long time, consider whether you truly need them. Gifting unused and unwanted products to friends, family or a charity shop might be better.
If you have got a small bathroom, one easy trick for making the space feel bigger is installing mirrors. Mirrors will reflect light and make your space feel much less claustrophobic. They are also perfect for this room as they are also practical for typical morning routine activities such as sorting out your hair, brushing your teeth, or putting in contact lenses. Do not be afraid to go for something bold rather than the usual traditional style. Mirrors come in all kinds of shapes, sizes and designs, meaning you can also use them as a stand-alone feature to add some character to your bathroom.
If you follow these easy-to-do tips, you will be surprised at how much difference such small changes can make in revamping a tired bathroom.
