If your bathroom is in need of a little TLC, there are plenty of upgrades you can make without an entire remodelling. A few small changes will make all the difference, and you can transform your bathroom into a haven of tranquility. Bring the spa home with essential oils, or add a touch of greenery. Invest in a few new accessories to brighten up the place, and ditch your dull old mats and towels. Here are five simple touches to spruce up your bathroom.
Refresh your accessories
Finally get rid of your old bath mat, shower curtain, and other accessories and replace them with something a little more luxurious. Check out this gorgeous striped mat for a bathroom, for example. You’ll be surprised how much difference new furnishings can make. These types of accessories won’t break the bank, but they’ll help to add both comfort and elegance.
A touch of greenery
Plants create a calming atmosphere and look lovely in the bathroom. You need to be careful to choose the ones that will thrive in the environment, however. Some plants can wilt in the steamy atmosphere if not. Here are the best houseplants for your bathroom. If you haven’t got much room in your bathroom, try using the vertical space instead. Put up shelves to host plants, or you could even hang planters directly on the wall.
Essential oils and aromatherapy
Create a sensory space with essential oils and aromatherapy. The essential oils that work best in a bathroom can include lemon, eucalyptus, tea tree, thyme, and peppermint. These will add a light, clean scent. There are several ways to use essential oils in the bathroom. You could get a diffuser or a candle, or add the oils to your bath. Close your eyes and it’ll be like having a fancy spa in your own home.
Rather than replacing the entire tiling or redecorating completely, you could create a feature wall. Fill an unused section of the wall with some handcrafted tiles. If you’re only updating a small section, you can opt for something a little more high-end. Treat yourself to designer tiling, or an original mosaic. There are also plenty of budget options too for building a stylish feature wall. Here are some of the home decor trends this year to give you inspiration. Choose the look that best suits your unique taste and personality.
Artwork also makes a great feature, and you won’t have to do any retiling. You could look online for some quirky bathroom wall art, or research a local artist. If you’re the artistic type, you could even make something yourself. It’s up to you what kind of look you want to create. You could go for something abstract and colourful, or humour. In the bathroom, anything goes, and it’s nice to have artwork to look at. It helps to create a relaxing atmosphere and brightens your mood. With a few fun additions, you can freshen up your bathroom this year.
