If your bathroom looks dated, it is normal to feel bad about it and want to decorate. However, right now, we live through tough times. The coronavirus pandemic is nothing to joke about and there is always uncertainty about what will happen in a month from now.
While it is normal to be conscious about your budget, this does not mean that you cannot improve the décor of any part of your home, from your living room to your kitchen. Your bathroom can also get a huge upgrade. Just consider the following simple and effective décor tips.
Apply A Fresh Coat Of Paint
The entire wall décor can be refreshed with a coat of paint, as long as you choose the right color. This very easy and quick DIY bathroom décor project will immensely transform the entire room.
Try to use lighter colors when you want the bathroom to look bigger. Also, consider vibrant or dark colors when you want to add some drama. This works for any bath of any size. You do not need to use gloss paint to fight moisture. Just use additives to remove the possibility that mildew will appear. Take it one step further and use semi-gloss paint or eggshell paint for your cabinets.
Choose Affordable Lighting Fixtures
Outdated lighting fixtures have to be replaced and many homeowners do not do this because they see all the expensive options on the market. But you do not need to go for something expensive. There are countless affordable options you can buy online and in local stores.
The major electrical projects should only be tackled by professionals. If you choose to go for the DIY approach, make sure you know exactly what you are doing. Try the new trends, like hanging pendants or light bars. Also, make sure you choose the environmentally-friendly LED lighting fixtures. They do not add extra heat and are energy-efficient.
Add Affordable Wall Art
Do not even think about having blank walls. Add some canvas prints. They are affordable and water-resistant. Oversized proportions are always a very good idea as they create a wonderful visual impact. If you want to have something unique, local printer shops can blow up any photograph to turn it into beautiful wall art. A custom printer can even create laminate canvas prints for perfect water resistance. Alternatively, use wall galleries with your favorite objects. This can easily be refreshing and personal.
Use Adhesive Tiles
When bathroom tiles are boring, a great thing you can do is to use removable adhesive tiles. They can easily be cut by you during the weekend and then install them whenever you want to. As a result, you will end up with a refreshed bathroom tile appearance. When you are bored with the look or damage appears, just remove the adhesive.
Update Towels And Rugs
In so many cases, there is not much that can be done since the budget is particularly low. If this is your case, just throw away or donate your mismatched, old towels. Buy some new, fluffy, soft ones. Just go for something that perfectly matches the bathroom décor you have or you want to create. You will need two main updates:
- Towels – use fresh colors and textures.
- Floor mats – use unique and comfortable materials.
You can also update your shower curtains. Go for something printed or patterned. Just choose something that coordinates well with your mats and towels.
