We like to think that we’ve got great taste. But, did you look at your bathroom lately? Sure, it took care of all your hygiene needs for all those years, but maybe it’s time to leave your 70s bathroom behind, where it belongs.
Since we’ve been spending more time at home for the last year or so than the last decade combined, no wonder the rates of home improvements have skyrocketed. With more than half of homeowners in the U.S. alone embarking on new remodeling projects. So, learning how to update a bathroom is now key knowledge.
If you’re looking for ways to update a bathroom on a budget, then you’ve come to the right place. Keep on reading for our top four ways you can transform your bathroom in no time at all.
1. Easiest Way to Update a Bathroom: New Paint
Don’t underestimate the power of a pop of color in your bathroom. It’s an easy, simple, cheap, quick, and a rather effective way of starting your bathroom remodeling.
Bathrooms are one of the smaller rooms in your home. So it won’t take you a lot of time to create an accent wall. Or, you can give your cabinetry a pop of color, if you’re enamored with the current wall color you have in your bathroom.
2. Invest in New Linens
A quick look online or a run to your closest store will give you a good idea of the different towels, shower curtains, or bath rugs available on the market.
After all, you won’t believe how good your bathroom looks with a new patterned shower curtain. After adding the right splash of paint, you can match your new bath linens with your new bathroom colors.
3. A New Mirror on the Wall
For your best evil queen impersonification, you’ll need some showstopping mirror. And, what better place to put it than where you most need one, in your bathroom?
Take your basic plate-glass mirror down, and start looking for a more exciting framed mirror. This is a quick way to add some architectural interest and character to your bathroom. It’s both functional and decorative.
4. Get New Hardware
Have you looked at your interior hardware recently?
If it’s just as plain as your plate-glass mirror, then it’s time to add some character and color to your cabinet knobs and drawer. Yet, you’ll want to pick one design, so that you can match your hand towel tings, bath towel bars, and your toilet paper holders.
This will give you a cohesive stylistic look and will prevent a slapdash-looking design from accidentally forming in your bathroom.
