Swap out your mirror. Mirrors can make a big difference in any room, but they are particularly important in the bathroom, as they need to be highly functional yet also in line with the overall décor. Make sure yours is large enough for everyday tasks like shaving and applying makeup, but also check to see if it fits appropriately in the space allotted and matches the bathroom’s scheme. If not, it may be time for something new.
Replace your hardware. This can be an inexpensive change that can make all the difference. Hardware options these days give you near-endless choices of styles and finishes. Look for something that is distinctive while complementing your décor.
Get the walls in on the act. Bathroom wall treatments can define the style of your space. Whether you want to make a statement with bold wallpaper or create a calming atmosphere with a neutral paint color, it’s a change that will improve the entire room in an affordable way.
Introduce color. To jazz up a neutral room, add pops of color through accessories, furniture, towels — even bar soap.
Assess your lighting. We spend a lot of time pampering ourselves in the bathroom mirror, so your lighting should be top-notch. Maximize as much natural light as possible, and be sure your vanity mirrors are flanked with lighting to reduce shadows.
Consider your flooring. It’s easy to fall back on typical bathroom flooring options such as tile. However, consider making a statement by choosing a bold option like these herringbone floors. Your bathroom will feel so chic.
Amp the storage. Take a good look at your bathroom. Are your storage options carrying their weight? If you’re renovating, make storage one of your top priorities by thinking of all the ways you can sneak it in, such as adding a vanity tower like this.
Thankfully, adding storage doesn’t require a full-on renovation. Hang shelving on the wall to create space for towels and other knickknacks.
Add accessories. Personalizing a space always makes it feel more homey and comfortable.
