Update the Look of Your Bathroom With Small Changes
Updating the look of your bathroom doesn’t have to be something that only professional designers can do. You actually don’t need to know much about style or design at all, you just need to pick things that you like. This article will give you some ideas on how to do this, without making major changes in your bathroom.
The first thing you need to do is identify why you don’t like your current bathroom. If the reasons you don’t like your bathroom are because it’s too small, the layout isn’t right, or it doesn’t have a granite counter top, then those are major changes that aren’t going to be covered here. If you don’t like your bathroom because it’s plain and boring looking, dull and lifeless, or just doesn’t reflect your personality, then those are the things we will be talking about!
There are many small changes you can make to update the look of your bathroom, and you can incorporate all of these, or just a few. One of the first things you can do that will probably stand out the most is getting a new shower curtain. The shower curtain takes up a lot of space in your bathroom, and changing it from a plain white one to a dark red shower curtain will really make your bathroom look different. Choose whatever color or pattern you like, and go with it. If you don’t know what to get because you’re not sure what the right choice is, the only thing that matters is that you like it. You’re the one that’s going to be seeing it every day! If you are changing the shower curtain, you might look into changing the shower curtain rod that it hangs from as well. There are many types available in a wide variety of finishes. Going from a plastic tension shower curtain rod to a beautiful bronze or brushed metal shower rod will really give your bathroom that updated look.
The next thing you can do is look at your floor. What do you have on your floor? Do you have old pastel colored bath mats, or worse yet, old towels? If you do, go get yourself some new bath mats! Color coordinate them with your new shower curtain and get one for in front of the sink, and one for in front of the toilet. If you’d really like to update the look of your bath, consider getting a teak bath mat. This is a wooden platform that you stand on to dry yourself off when stepping out of the shower.
After those changes, look into getting some new towels. It may sound trivial, but if you choose towels that match your shower curtain and floor mats, this will give your bath a complete look. The different elements that match in color scattered throughout the small room will make it look like you put a lot of thought into the design. In fact, you will have put some thought into it, just not as much as many people think needs to be done. If you chose colors that you like, this will allow your personality to shine through and reflect the style that you like!
