A bathroom renovation requires proper organization and a well-thought-out budget plan. Luckily, you can take affordable yet effective steps to transform your bathroom into the best room in your home.
Here are a few helpful steps to consider.
You can start your bathroom makeover by changing the color of the walls. But, of course, if it goes beyond your budget or you don’t want to experiment too much, you can opt for a safer solution.
For instance, you can make a feature out of one of the walls and paint it. It depends on your overall bathroom aesthetics, but black is always a good option if the rest of your bathroom is white.
The good old black and white combination exudes elegance and sophistication. However, consider using some green nuances for a more spa-like feel. Green is the color of nature; it symbolizes growth and balance.
Purchasing wallpaper could shrink your renovation budget by a considerable sum, but it doesn’t have to be like that. As with the suggestion above, you don’t need to cover the entire bathroom.
You can choose one wall, for which you will probably need a roll or two. Another option, which may be even more appealing, is the wallpaper on the ceiling. Remember, the effect you’ll achieve will outweigh the initial investment.
You can revive every surface in your bathroom, covered in tiles, whether it be the walls or floor, by adding accent tiles. Mosaic tiles are an excellent option for such a venture because they add elegance to every space.
However, when installing these, follow the less is more rule; just a few mosaic tiles will be enough to give a fresh look to your bathroom. If you have the budget, certain toilet brands can also complement this look. For example, Kohler, Signature Hardware, and Gerber toilets are all good options for this because they often come in several colors.
If we could name one element as a focal point of every bathroom, it would be a tub. With so many options in the market today, you can easily find a model that fits your bathroom’s size and personal taste.
For instance, stone tubs are popular additions in design circles over the last couple of years. Aside from their luxurious look, stone tubs are also more durable than, for instance, acrylic models.
A wooden tub tray is all you need in your private spa. You can display it across the tub and decorate it (or not) with soaps, flowers, and some candles; there are so many possibilities.
Just imagine making a warm bubble bath for yourself and having a tub tray to put your favorite book and a glass (or cup) of your favorite drink on—a top-notch self-care ritual.
We often concentrate on core bathroom elements, overlooking how segments, like lighting, can add to our bathroom’s look.
Suppose you want to transform your bathroom into a relaxing oasis you plan to spend time in after a long and busy day. In those moments, you’ll not be thinking so much about sink faucets, to be honest, but the overall atmosphere.
Light plays a significant role in these occasions. Of course, you want your overhead lighting to fulfill its purpose, but why don’t you make it pretty? What are your thoughts on chandeliers? It’s a unique detail that will make a tremendous difference.
Why stop there? Add table lamps and a couple of candles. These are the kind of details that will make your bathroom your favorite nook in the house.
A vase with flowers on your dining table brings life and color to the space; putting one in your bathroom can have the same effect.
In addition, fresh flowers are probably the most affordable detail you’ll add to your private, relaxing oasis, so why not make the most out of it.
You can put almost any plant in the bathroom. However, consider a couple of things, such as natural light, when choosing the plant type for this space.
If you fear your bathroom is too tiny, pothos and spider plants are worth considering because you can hang them so they don’t get in the way.
In addition, taking care of these green beauties can be highly beneficial to your mental health. Consider using hanging plants, aside from enriching your bathroom aesthetics, you’ll enhance your life with an exciting and relaxing new hobby.
Another (decorative) element we often overlook is the humble bath mat. However, changing it is another cost-effective move that could make a significant difference.
Still, you should not limit yourself to standard mats. Instead, think (and look) outside the box and experiment. For example, if you want your bathroom to look expensive, you can add a Persian or Turkish rug.
Although they can be pretty pricey, the good news is, you’ll only need a little piece. In addition, unlike regular bath mats that get destroyed after a while, Persian and Turkish rugs get better as they fade.
Art is quite suitable but not so common in bathrooms. So today, interior designers suggest art is not just for museums and galleries; it’s also for bathrooms.
Many people argue you need a big budget for such a venture. But that’s not entirely accurate. Thanks to the internet, you can find many affordable prints you can choose from and make them a great addition to your bathroom.
Music gives a romantic, soft, and warm touch to your bathroom, making it a space you would want to spend as much time as possible.
The trick is to compile your favorite tunes; a relaxing bathroom playlist will add the necessary ingredient to make your home oasis complete.
As you can see, there are many things, more or less affordable, you can employ to make your bathroom warm and welcoming.
Remember, every renovation process requires specific financial outlays, but money should not hinder your ideas and desires.
