Your bathroom speaks volumes of who you are and what you represent. If a person enters your bathroom, what would they do: cringe or feel comfortable?
Would they want to take a bath there, use the toilet, or run away?
How neat your bathroom is is vital to the overall outlook of your bathroom. But there are simple things, aside keeping the toilet seats and bathtub and tiles and walls and towels clean and neat, that makes your bathroom look beautiful.
Let us share with you five simple ways to improve the look of your bathroom.
- Paint the walls of your bathroom
There is nothing as appealing as when one walks into a bathroom to find the walls neatly painted and the tiles neatly washed or painted as well. When you want to paint the walls of your bathroom, bright colors such as white is a perfect choice.
With white paints, your bathroom looks and feels spacious. Furthermore, due to how transparent white and other bright colors are, they help to reflect light—natural or artificial light—in the bathroom.
If you opt for a blend of colors, be careful with the color palette you choose. A combination of dark and bright colors doesn’t always go well. The better option is a blend of bright colors.
Also, never forget the tiles on the wall. After you have painted the walls, the tiles on the ground and walls shouldn’t look dirty. An ideal way to remove dirt from bathroom tiles is to brush with strong sealant remover.
- Use mirrors
Mirror, mirror on the wall, who is the fairest of them all? It’s you!
Having a mirror on your wall—not just a small mirror close to the sink, but a big mirror that covers a large part of the bathroom wall—also helps your bathroom look beautiful, spacious, and comfortable.
You can never go wrong with a bathroom wall lined with mirrors. When placing your mirror on the wall, look for mirror frames that blend well with the bathroom fixtures.
For example, the fixture colors on the toilet and sink should blend with the colors of the mirror frames. A blended color of accessories and the mirror frame would give your bathroom a comfortable feel.
- Shower curtains
If you have a small bathroom, maximizing space is essential. Even if you have a large bathroom, having regular bathroom doors can sometimes make your bathroom look dull and cramped.
With shower curtains, you are making the bathroom look more prominent and also add color to the bathroom. The color of your shower curtain is also essential. You should ensure that the color of your shower curtain isn’t opaque. Instead, choose light colors like ash or white.
- Allow light, lots of it
After you have painted the walls and cleaned the tiles and put shower curtains, you need light. And not just a dim bulb at the center of the bathroom, you need several bright lights.
Having two to three windows in your bathroom to allow natural light in is excellent. The bulbs in the bathroom should produce soft light, not intense yellow-orange beams that you use in other rooms.
- Decorate with photos
Improving the dull look of your bathroom—whether big or small—needs something special, something out of the box.
Hanging personal pictures on the wall might sound out of the ordinary, but think about it. Having photos of yourself or those of your loved ones on the wall of the bathroom gives the bathroom that special and personal feel. It is uncommon, no doubt, but it very well improves the look of your bathroom.
Your bathroom doesn’t have to look as dull as a tombstone, and you can uplift the look. You don’t want to be bathing in a drab looking bathroom, do you? Give your bathroom the personal, sophisticated touch and look.
