Giving the bathroom a fresh new look does not have to cost a lot of money. Many things will spice up the look of the room and not break the budget. Here are some quick bathroom updates that can be accomplished over the weekend.
Step 1: Thoroughly clean the area, including scrubbing the grout in the tub, cleaning around the faucets on the sinks and tubs, mopping the floors, and disinfecting the toilet. Wipe down the cabinets and countertop. Remove all clutter from the surfaces and store or throw these items away as necessary. Give the cabinets and closet a thorough cleaning and discard any unwanted or expired items.
Step 2: If possible, repaint the cabinets in a trendy color. Replace knobs and handles on bathroom cabinets.
Step 3: Repaint the walls of the bathroom. Add a coordinating wallpaper border and purchase window treatments and a shower curtain that match the color scheme.
Step 4: Buy coordinating accessories including wastebasket and tissue, soap, and toothbrush holder.
Step 5: Replace the bathroom rugs with those in a new color and style to match the theme of the room.
Step 6: Add accents such as candles, potpourri, or baskets. The baskets can store things such as extra hand towels, designer soap, or other toiletries.
Step 7: Hang decorative paintings or pictures on the walls. Keep these in line with the theme of the room. Replace the bathroom mirror with one that has a new shape.
Step 8: Put a vase of fresh flowers on a shelf and replace them as necessary.
Step 9: Install hooks and rods inside the bathroom closet for hanging wet clothing, cleaning rags, and other items. Place a rotating rod system on the hinge of the bathroom door. This will serve as extra hanging space for guest towels and washcloths, while at the same time keeping these items out of sight.
Step 10: Add small pieces of furniture to the room. A little chest or chair should fit in even the smallest of bathrooms.
