Tips For Bathroom Makeovers

Bathroom makeovers do not have to be difficult because the bathroom is a room that doesn’t take a whole lot to make it look significantly better. You don’t usually need to buy any furniture like a bedroom or living room and you’d be surprised how rarely you’ll actually need to replace things like cabinets or expensive mirrors. There are plenty of small bathroom design ideas that can get your bathroom looking a lot better for less money than you thought possible.

One easy and small bathroom makeover that almost every bathroom needs is something that covers any plumbing that might be visible around or under the bathroom vanity. Also, if there is visible plumbing behind the toilet, a storage unit behind the toilet may do the trick. If there is visible plumbing under the sink, a curtain attached to the bottom of the bowl of the sink that matches the décor of the rest of the room is an easy fix. Visible plumbing makes the bathroom cold (figuratively, and sometimes literally) and uninviting.

Bathroom makeovers can often be overlooked, but one that can make a huge difference is plenty of places to hang bath towels, hand towels, etc. A lot of times, especially in smaller bathrooms, people settle for hanging everything on one towel rack. Besides the possibility that your towels might develop mold because they aren’t getting enough air, it also looks cluttered and unkempt. Screw a few decorative towel holders into the wall and you’ll be amazed at how much more friendly it looks.

Another easy way to give your bathroom a small makeover is by giving it a fresh coat of paint. This is especially important where your bathroom is a cool color, like blue. Most people agree that the best color for a bathroom is a warm pastel. Get a few cans of paint, look up some amateur painting instructions online, and take a Saturday to transform your bathroom.

Finally, lighting is important to small bathroom makeovers. Nothing is drearier than a dimly lit bathroom. New bathroom lighting as part of your makeover carries the risk that it may not be a small one. If changes need to be made to the wiring in the bathroom, you’ll need to hire an electrician, and that can get expensive. However, there’s a good chance you can increase the lighting just by changing the fixtures in the room. You can also make the bathroom seem well-lit by adding small mirrors to walls that don’t already have one.

The key to doing bathroom makeovers is to give the room a warm, calming effect. Nobody likes to wake up and go to a cold, uninviting bathroom first thing in the morning. Making it more inviting doesn’t need to be expensive or time-consuming; it just requires a few well-placed changes.  Turning your bathroom remodeling ideas and thoughts into reality is really as simple as figuring out exactly what it is you want by doing some research, determining what your budget is, assessing whether or not you qualified or up to the task of doing it yourself, making sure you have the correct tools and supplies if you feel like you are, then putting your plan into action.
