Bathroom feeling a little blasé? If renovations aren’t in your near future, don’t sweat it. These easy updates will have your bathroom feeling fresh in no time. Plus they’re affordable and can be done in a weekend or less.
Perhaps the easiest way to update your bathroom is to swap out your bath mat, shower curtain, and towels. These linens should be replaced every two years, so use this as an opportunity to try a new color or theme. You’ll love how soft new towels feel, too.
Mirrors are an easy way to make a big statement, even in the most modest of bathrooms. Beveled glass mirrors are beautiful, but we also love sunburst, quatrefoil, and other decorative frames. Be sure to measure the space above your sink first to ensure the design you like will fit.
Nothing makes a bathroom feel outdated like an old light fixture. If you’re the DIY type, try installing a new overhead vanity light or wall sconces. YouTube is full of tutorials on how to do this (it’s easier than you might think).
Décor has a place in the bathroom, too. Floating shelves take up minimal space and provide plenty of room for chic accents. We love small pieces of framed artwork, ceramics, and plants (real or silk).
Sometimes all you need is a pop of color or a playful pattern to freshen up a space. Keep it simple with a muted accent wall or go big with a bold wallpaper. Removable wallpaper is incredibly versatile and can be used on walls, cabinets, and more.
Just like the rest of your home, the bathroom should be a place you feel inspired. Try one (or all) of these tips to give your bathroom a fresh update you’ll enjoy for months to come.
