Does the look of your old bathroom make you feel frustrated? Would you like to modernize it and make it more stylish but wouldn't like to break the bank along the way? There is a solution for your problems, and within a couple of weeks you will be looking at your new and improved bathroom. Going green, making the most of the little space you have, bringing in more life and more light – all this is possible and quite easy to achieve.
Make it green
Do you know that keeping plants in the bathroom will make both them and you healthier? Soft light, a lot of humidity, and not to mention the warmth, all present the perfect conditions for tropical plants. Your beloved plants will thrive there, and the entire room will look more alive than ever before. Add a touch of exotic jungles to your ordinary bathroom by bringing in ferns, ivies, and orchids. If your bathroom does not have a window, boost the light with a fluorescent lamp.
New shower curtains and bathmats
When was the last time you changed your shower curtains? It’s easy to keep them clean and tidy by washing them regularly; however, it might be wise to change them from time to time even if you have no mildew or fungus. Opt for some in brighter colours, with interesting geometric prints, or even something unusual like an inspirational quote. While you’re at it, if you’re thinking about new shower curtain, you can change your bathmats as well. Bathroom rugs can be interesting: try getting one made entirely of moss, which is watered every time you step on it, or one that changes colour when you step on it with wet feet. There are even some made of pebbles or fungus-resistant wood.
The best modern fixtures
You don’t have to renovate the entire bathroom to make it modern; sometimes, using contemporary materials is enough to give your bathroom a completely fresh look. Bathroom fixtures and accessories are important because they give that elegant final touch. New stylish vanities which have elegant sinks and faucets will make your bathroom look like something out of a sci-fi movie. Today, you can have sinks that are raised above the countertop just a bit, or even undermounted, while faucets come in a variety of designs. Tall faucets that are adjacent to the sink are incredibly popular today as well. Use materials such as chrome, brushed nickel, and stainless steel for faucets, and add glass and wood accessories to the shelves.
Throw out the tub
Having a big tub in the bathroom may seem romantic, but it makes the place look a bit old-fashioned. Instead of having a huge tub (which takes ages to clean up), why not opt for a shower instead? They are much easier to clean, not to mention easier to get into and get out of when you’re finished. Call professionals, throw out the old bathtub, make sure you don’t have blocked drains, and have a walk-in shower instead. A new shower curtain with floral print will really make the entire room look stylish and fashionable, and you will have more space at the same time.
With just a little patience and a bit of creativity, you can transform your boring old bathroom into a real little work of art. All you need is willingness to improvise and compromise, and a couple of friends so you don’t have to do all that by yourself. Start the new year with some positive changes which include the renovation of your bathroom.
