Is a bathroom update on the cards? Have you ever thought about a bathroom update? Have you noticed things that you don’t adore about your bathroom since you’ve been spending more time at home? You don’t have to jump right into an overhaul. You can refresh your bathroom on a budget. Check out our quick tips for a simple and effective bathroom update.
Tip 1: Deep Clean
Before you set out on redecorating or doing small repairs on your bathroom, give it a deep clean and declutter. This means getting out the scrubbing brush, gloves, paper towel and cleaning products and putting some real elbow grease into the job. You will notice a huge difference straight away if you commit to do it properly.
Safety First Tip: Check the use-by date on all your products and get rid of any that are no longer safe to use. This will also immediately free up more storage space in your bathroom and will make you feel like you have already accomplished something! Great motivation to keep going.
A fresh and clean bathroom provides you with a blank canvas to help you map out what updates you want and need to make. You’ll also have the opportunity to notice some of the details that need your attention during your update. This is also the time to address any nasty issues such as a leaking shower recess needing repair, cracked tiles and missing grout.
Pro Tip: Don’t forget to clean the grout!
Tip 2: Update The Decor
If the bones of your bathroom are still doing great, your bathroom update may simply involve a decor update. Take some time to research what you do and don’t like online. Costs between brands and styles of decor and fixtures can also be significant so do your research early and set a budget.
If you want the latest look, darker colours are a big trend in the bathroom world at the moment. Update your soap dispenser, toothbrush holder and any other accessories such as vases to darker colours. Darker tones will help your bathroom to feel a bit more luxurious too. You can even get some fresh new towels to really tie everything in.
Try some faux or living greenery in your bathroom update. It’s a great way to add fresh, low-maintenance style. Take stock of what plants you already have at home and determine which ones will thrive in your bathroom space. Think about natural light, the time you have to water living plants etc. before committing.
Marble is another hot accessory trend, however, you don’t have to splurge to get the same effect. Include marble accessories (which will pair great with the darker tones you may choose to include in your bathroom update). Things to add to your shopping list include a marble tray to hold any products that you use daily, a marble wall decoration or maybe even a simple marble candle.
If it all sounds like too much of a job to do yourself, you can bring in the experts without costing the earth. If a DIY bathroom update isn’t your thing and you don’t quite have the budget for a full renovation you may want to consider a bathroom rejuvenation. The benefits of a bathroom rejuvenation are considerable as you get to enjoy an updated bathroom look along with the peace of mind that the structure of your bathroom has been addressed to. The repair and or maintenance completed during your bathroom rejuvenation will add longevity to your bathroom saving you more dollars in the long term. Win Win.
