Hygiene is a religion and the bathroom is its temple. A clean bathroom will always inspire praise from your guests. Pristine, flawless, and pure. These are the attributes you want your bathroom to have. Even if your current bathroom isn’t these things, you can always do a makeover – That’s the beauty of being a homeowner.
It can be difficult to alter your bathroom from scratch, especially if you don’t have a background in interior design. But fear not! Here are some amazing tips on how you can bring your creativity to bear upon the blandness of your bathroom.
Do Your Research
In the same manner that you probably check Instagram for fashion inspiration, you can do the same for home improvement projects over at Pinterest. This helps you acquire bathroom makeovers ideas from other people who have already performed the makeover. What’s more is that you can see whether or not the makeover would suit your bathroom.
Have A Clear Objective
Now that you’ve scoured the internet for a plethora of bathroom makeover ideas, you need to decide which of these ideas fits your bathroom best, aesthetically and functionally. You should be able to see the processes involved in the makeover and from there, you can determine whether or not the makeover is something that you can achieve.
Set A Budget
Now that you have a clear objective, you need to set a budget for your project. You have to determine how much you’re willing to spend to get the sorely-needed bathroom makeover that you want. This also ensures that you are able to successfully finish your project. – Nothing is more frustrating than a half-finished makeover.
Hire The Right People
While this is self-explanatory, this is often overlooked in favor of hiring cheap, unlicensed laborers. The problem here is that when you do hire untrained laborers, you are setting yourself up for disaster. Your ideas might be some of the best on the market but without the proper execution to help your ideas come to fruition, all you’ll end up paying for is a bitter disappointment. So, only hire licensed professionals who have had years of experience in the home improvement business.
No, I’m not referring to anything that involves any form of entertainment. By this, I mean that you need to do a dry run with your materials before you proceed with the final installment. This avoids making any unnecessary adjustments when you’ve already set the material. It’s always best to get things right the first time you do them.
Basically, your bathroom makeover is only limited by your imagination. And, well, to an extent, also to the craftsmanship of the contractors that you hire. Alternatively, if you don’t have the funds to get a full bathroom remodeling project, you can also try these cheap tricks for a more aesthetically-pleasing bathroom.
Use Uniform Containers
Instead of throwing away those coffee bottles that you get from Starbucks, consider transferring your lotions, shampoos, creams, and conditioners into them. This provides a sense of harmony and zen to your bathroom. Just remember to label your bottles.
Install a Curved Shower Rod
This creates the illusion that you have a bigger shower area than what you actually have. If you have the funds, you can even have your bathroom remodel follow this pattern.
The Bathtub Tray
You can turn a plank of wood into a bathtub tray that can hold your books and maybe even a glass of wine while you soak yourself in your choice of perfumes and washes. Not only does it accent the white color of your tub, but it also provides a lot of functionality.
Add Some Flora
For a fresher look in your bathroom, consider adding a plant to accentuate the color of your bathroom, whether your bathroom is predominantly brown (for that classic, rustic look) or white (for that Greek city-inspired look).
Use An Old Wooden Ladder as a Towel Holder
This gives off a rustic look that goes well with your bathroom, regardless of what your main color is. Each step in the ladder also makes for a great storage option. For example, You can hang your foot towel at the lowest step, your bathrobe in the middle, and your face towel at the highest step.
Now, you don’t always have to DIY to achieve the look that you want. Sometimes, it’s better to trust in experts to work their home remodeling magic.
