Get Rid of Some Stuff
This is good advice for refreshing any space in your home. The first thing you always want to do is to clear out. This part is not exciting, at least not until you see the space you are working with. This is especially true if you have a lot of clutter in your space. While the task can be hard and you can find it frustrating to choose which items to let go of you can make it easier. Just think about the treat it will be when you get to go out and purchase new stuff.
You don’t have to do this task all at once. You can set aside 15 minutes every day where you go into your bathroom and commit to removing items that are no longer needed. Think about the last time you used an item and let that guide you into what can be cleared out.
Choose a Shower Curtain
In most bathrooms, the shower curtain is what stands out the most. As such changing out your shower curtain will make a big impact on the look and feel of your bathroom. Choose your colors and patterns based on the feel you want to get from your bathroom. If you want a zen-like, spa feeling then you want to go for colors and prints that are relaxing and soothing. If you want your bathroom to be vibrant then you obviously go the opposite route. If you want to increase storage you can opt for a shower curtain with pockets.
Change Your Soap Dispenser
When changing your soap dispenser, you don’t have to worry about it matching your shower curtain. You can choose to have your soap dispenser, toothbrush holder and soap dish in a contrasting color to the rest of the items in your bathroom. You have the option of choosing a natural element such as stone, or wood if you are going with a relaxed zen-like bathroom.
Choosing New Towels
Worn out towels can make your bathroom seem drab and downright depressing. The simple task of changing towels can lift your bathroom immensely. Towels are quite inexpensive so you can get a brand new set of towels of various prices without completely ruining your budget. Whether you choose colored towels or a crisp white, you can’t go wrong with new good quality towels.
You will find that most interior designers place their main focus on lighting no matter what room in the house they are focusing on. Lighting can have a very significant impact on space within your home. What type of lights do you prefer or what types of light will fulfill the purpose of your room? Do you do your makeup in the bathroom or do you simply shower and use the toilet and leave? All of these need to be considered when choosing a type of light. Remember you can find lighting solutions that offer dimming features so you can relax and wind down at the end of the day and will also allow you the opportunity to have bright lights when you need them to get ready.
If you change your lighting fixtures you should try to get more energy-efficient ones. Consider LED lighting options and you can apply this principle to your faucets as well as your showerheads. Both these endeavors will not only refresh the look of your bathroom but will also help to reduce your electricity and water bills as well.
