I've been a little obsessed with bathrooms lately. There's something about using a clean, fresh, polished bath and yet- it can be the most forgotten space in the home. How many times have you cringed when you had unplanned house guests ask to use your restroom? Or unplanned sleep over guests? No one wants to wake up to a dated and dingy bath, not even you! Here are 3 ways to update this space, big or small- to avoid those ugly feels.
#1- SHOWER CURTAINS
A dated, frosted, metal framed enclosure can look dingy. Take those doors and metal frame off and replace with a fresh new curtain! If you can't or don't want to install a rod into the wall, a tension rod will do the job just fine! I always steam or iron out any wrinkles before putting up. Even a plain white curtain does the job here:
#2- HANGING ART AND FRAMES
Since bathrooms are a small part of the home, you can get really bold and fun. Art on the walls, even just 1-2 frames you probably already own, will make your bath look polished, clever, and express your personality! Here is where you can get creative. You don't even have to spend a lot. I like to hang some of my 3 year old's "paintings" that I have framed. I have taken gorgeously patterned scrapbooking paper and framed that. Fabric is another medium. Frame a couple of favorite fabrics, find a spot and put them up!
#3- DECORATE WITH PLANTS
Lastly- Putting just one plant in the bathroom really exudes the feeling of freshness and connects back to nature, a feeling most people crave in our hustle bustle concrete jungle lives. If you have a black thumb like me, even a faux plant will do. I love succulents in the bathroom!
That's it! Your bathroom is a welcome retreat and a place of respite...make it feel that way for you and your guests! And remember, if decorating your bathroom is a frustrating ordeal- save your sanity and order my BATH STYLE BOX KIT! The simple, peaceful way to a polished, and inviting bath!
