Indulge Your Senses and Live in Style with these Bathroom Makeover Tips

Updated on April 26, 2013

Imagine a day without a visit to the bathroom. Improbable will be the first word to strike one’s mind as leaving aside nature’s calls, it is more than just a utilitarian room. It adds to one’s creature comforts and is a place for rejuvenation. A nice warm shower can be the perfect wakeup call in the morning or a long soak in the tub can be a de-stressing option. Aside from this, as far as the overall market value of a house goes, a good bathroom does fetch brownie points if nothing else.

Unfortunately, not all of us can indulge in a professional bathroom makeover. There’s a silver lining in the offing though as with a realistic budget plan and some imagination, a bathroom makeover can be done without too much strain on finances. Here are a few tips that should highlight how a bathroom makeover need not need much expense.

Get the walls right

Walls are very important when it comes to first impressions and the overall colour scheme. The type of wallpaper or paint shade opted, tiling pattern used or decorative features added all end up making a definite impression.

White tiled walls are a general preferred favourite though pearl grey too looks good. Glossy tiling has a more defined touch to it and looks newer than plainer patterns. Tiles with leaf designs too are favoured though bolder striped versions are opted by people who want a more masculine looking space.

Indulge yourself

A little bit of expenditure on comfort accessories too will help make the makeover not only more complete but also more personally useful. Buy a new set of soft fluffy towels and rugs, or get new clothes hooks installed or maybe even a cute soap dish or dispenser.

More expensive accessories like a designer radiator or heated towel rail can make the bathroom more comfort providing. If the old medicine cabinet is defunct, then spend a bit on a new mirror cabinet or vanity unit. The basin area can be made less cluttered if you fix a shelf above the basin.

Get rid of clutter

Clutter can make even the best décor appear cramped and lackluster. Therefore, get rid of old outdated products and stack only required items in a cabinet. Keep daily use products on shelves. An undersink cabinet too can help make the most of space and the sink area can be kept clear with side cabinets installed on either side.

Mirrored Art

An innovatively shaped bathroom mirror or one with a decorative frame will not only help grace the wall and add to brightness but will function as a bathroom accessory as well. Make your walls look better by fixing vintage mirrors or have a side-by-side mirror arrangement. Mirrors can also help enhance the beauty of the area by reflecting the wall behind. It can also be used to reflect light fixtures or artwork.

Decorative screens

Invest in a good shower screen to avoid splashes and save your floors from water while showering. A shower curtain obviously cannot compete with the modernity and style of bathroom shower screens but it is a durable option. Frameless screens with frosted glass or patterned designs go with almost any type of bathroom theme.
