Is your bathroom looking a little outdated and feeling lackluster? If you’re not ready to go all out and change every single aspect of your bathroom by installing a whole new bathroom, then there are some small DIY tweaks you can do to make it feel like you have a whole new room.

Read on for five top tips on how to give your bathroom a fresh lease of life.

1. Change Up the Furniture

A whole new bathroom suite is a large investment, but simply switching out bathroom furniture can work for any budget. It’s easy to paint existing cupboards to update color schemes or switch key pieces like the sink basin.

If you want to make the space feel more luxurious, definitely upgrade your showerhead. Detachable heads have larger water volume, offer more flexibility, and are designed with beautiful stainless steel. Your guests will immediately notice the difference when they step in and see a state-of-the-art showerhead.

2. A Fresh Coat of Paint

One of the easiest and most affordable ways to refresh the bathroom is to paint the walls. Tired of white? Bring in sky blue. However, you’ll need finishes that are compatible with humidity, like:

  • Glossy
  • Satin
  • Semi-gloss

The paint should also have a mildew-resistant additive.

Why stop at walls? You can paint any surface from the units to the floor.

Like the color of your walls the way they are? Try self-adhesive tiles.

3. Plants

Fence Planters and fresh flowers can transform any space. There’s also a variety of health benefits associated with having house plants too, like allergy relief and increased mental health.

You can choose plants that thrive in warm, humid spaces, such as aloe vera, most air plants, and ferns. You can even add freshly cut flowers to give your bathroom a natural fragrance, like lavender or rose.

4. Fresh Towels

If your budget is tight and you want the fastest way to transform the space, change out your towels.

One of the few luxuries in life is coming out of a shower or bath and wrapping yourself in a huge fluffy towel, right? So take the money you’re saving by avoiding a renovation and invest in high-quality, plushy towels. These will last longer than the average fabric and make you feel stocked up on gourmet items.

Your new towels can set or even add to a color scheme you have and also add a touch of elegance to your bathroom. If your bathroom is all white and you want that hotel feel, then invest in a nice set of white towels, but if you want to add a splash of color, pick pastels.

5. Go Bright and Light

We can’t understate the importance of upgrading your lighting. The bathroom is usually the first place we go in the mornings and the last place we go at night, and the lighting can completely affect how we begin and end our day. If it’s bright and there’s natural light, we’re more likely to be positive. If it’s dark and light is coming only from fluorescent overheads, you can guarantee decreased mood and sleep.

Also we recommend adding mirrors, which reflect the bathroom’s light and make the room feel brighter. The more light you can have in the space, the bigger the room will feel, and the more time you’ll want to spend there.

Decorate Your Space

There are so many options for changing up space, even on the tightest budget. Some of the smallest changes can make the biggest difference, like adding plants, changing towels, and improving lighting.

It’s time for you to feel like your bathroom is a touch of luxury, so try one of these tips today.
