Change the color of the bathroom
The best and cheapest way to give your bathroom a quick makeover is by adding on a new color. Why not have it repainted with a new coat of color depending on your choice of color. However, give you walls a proper rub down and wash over with a de-glosser solution before you start painting. Make sure that your new color coordinates with other fabrics which you are using for the curtains. Whether you want your bathroom to look neutral, pastel or bright depends upon your other accessories.
New window curtains and shower curtains
If your bathroom has windows, consider replacing the old faded curtains for a bright new look. Choose fabric and colors which will give a light and airy feeling to the room. While you are on the window curtains, why not replace your shower curtain as well and see what a big difference it can make. Choose colors which will match or contrast nicely with your bathroom color scheme. Go in for a drastic change by putting in new spark and life in bold and beautiful colors. You can even mix and match the shower and window curtains for a different look.
Get rid of the clutter
If you really want to revamp your bathroom, then get rid of all those unnecessary clutter accumulated over the years. Clean out medicine cabinet, drawers and the laundry bin and keep only the must haves in proper order. You can install put out towel bar discreetly at the bottom of your cabinet to hang your damp rags and loofahs. Get the corners utilized by placing some corner cabinets which can hold the toiletry stuff. Look for some nice large containers which can hold your necessities. Something in ceramic or crystal will look very nice if placed strategically on one side of the wash basin area. Place your folded hand towels and wash clothes in a nice basket and place in a convenient location. Keep nice tall jars to display your cosmetic pencils and silk flowers or fresh flowers depending on your choice. You can make the bathroom appear soft and appealing by placing a nice piece of discreet furniture such as a chair.
Coordinate and mirror your bathroom in style
If you are not investing in new towels, then give your decent old ones a new look by adding color trims to the edges to match your floor rug or the curtains. You can add colorful accents by keeping some bright hand towels or washcloths in different hues. This will definitely cheer up the bathroom and bring more color to the walls. Invest in one good floor rug in a brighter shade than the curtains. You can always add character to your bathroom by having a framed mirror in decorative molding, which will reflect the other color scheme of the bathroom. The type of frames you need depends upon the kind of look you have given your bathroom. For a cottage style, a mirror framed in white will look homely, for a contemporary setting you need to use chrome frame and for an elegant bathroom, you can use gold or silver.
The perfect lighting
Soften your bathroom with the proper lighting by changing the light fixtures and adding wall scones for a warm look. Change the wiring and add lighted switch so that you can find it easily at night. If your bathroom is too dark and dim, lighten up by using higher watt bulbs or add additional light fixtures for the desired result.
Even if you are not able to achieve all these at one go, you can always put some touches whenever you have the time. This is not only fun but will be worth your effort to have a nice and fresh bathroom to luxuriate in. You will surely enjoy the transformation.
