Is it time to freshen up your bathroom space? Are you tired of the outdated vanity? Perhaps it just feels dull and uninviting?
If this is the case, you’ll be pleased to know you can transform your bathroom in just 4 steps. Here’s how.
1. Switch Out Your Vanity
Your bathroom vanity is often a focal point. Therefore, you need a vanity that’s both functional and aesthetically pleasing. Look for bathroom products,hardware, and accessories that match the overall look you’re going for.
For instance, if you want your small bathroom to appear bigger, opt for a small vanity. If you’re going for a modern look, consider a sink that sits above the countertop with small indoor plants. These are definite showstoppers giving your bathroom a modern, sophisticated touch.
Or, if you have a medium-sized to large bathroom space, consider two mirrors, sinks, and storage areas. This is great when there’s more than one person sharing a bathroom.
When it comes to accessories, keep things simple. Keep your soap and lotion on your vanity and everything else conveniently stored away. Otherwise, you risk a cluttered appearance.
2. Pick the Right Rug
Another must-have in your bathroom is a rug. These make great accent pieces, while offering a soft place to step onto after a shower. Consider size and shapewhen shopping for a rug. A rug that’s too big or dark can make your space look small or cluttered. Also, consider the texture: do you prefer fluffy rugs or the complete opposite?
3. Bathroom Art
Adding in colorful art is a great way to add some character to your bathroom. There is no set-in-stone way to pick art because different types appeal to different people. Some people love abstract pieces while others enjoy art that’s more defined.
Keep in mind that lighter colors will open your space while darker colors will make it feel more closed. And, of course, you want to go with art that matches the overall look of your washroom. If you have a specific theme, opt for colors that match it. If you’re going for a minimalist style, consider white or tan colors.
4. Towels & Shower Curtain Color Scheme
The rule of light versus dark colors in terms of art also applies to the color schemes you decide for the towels and shower curtains. Lighter shower curtains can really open up your space (ideal for small bathrooms). Also, placing the curtain rod closer to the ceiling will give the appearance of high ceilings. This is an easy hack many use to make their bathroom space feel much bigger than it really is.
If you have sliding glass doors, focus on the towels. Many of us have a dozen towels each in a different color. While there is nothing wrong with that, mismatched towels can really throw off the vibe and look of our space. You worked so hard to transform your bathroom, so make sure the towels match.
There are lots of factors that go into a color scheme, but once you pick, stick to your theme. This will maintain consistency, leading to an aesthetically pleasing washroom.
The biggest things to consider when you start to decorate your restroom are the space itself and how you want to fill it. Choose high-quality pieces for your faucets, sink, and hot tub/shower. From there, choose a theme of light or dark colors and pick out your art, towels, and shower curtains. Keep everything in the same color scheme. If you want pops of color, towels and plants are a great way to incorporate these.
