Bathrooms are often the most neglected room in the house when it comes to decorating. We tend to look at our bathrooms as a utilitarian space, but anyone can create a spa like space meant to pamper the senses in as little as a weekend. Quick, easy and inexpensive, these updates can be done by even the most amateur of us home decorators!
Reflect Your Dream Bathroom – Everyone hates those builder mirrors! Create a custom look border on your mirror with painters tape and some glass frost paint available at any craft store.
Stitch Up a New Look – Towels are necessary in any bathroom, but it doesn’t mean they have to be boring. Using a straight stitch on your sewing machine, add a simple fabric border to your towels for an elegant detail that won’t be missed!
Color Your World – Bathrooms tend to be small, but using rich color in this space adds luxury, and allows the walls to seem to fade away. Be bold and choose the deep, rich colors you have been craving.
Corral that Clutter – One of the biggest problems in a bathroom is attractive storage solutions. Baskets provide texture in a room full of slick, sterile surfaces, and can be used on countertops, attached to the wall, or under the sink to corral all those bathroom necessities!
Details Make a Difference – The final detail in adding that spa like feeling to your bath? Add candles! Candles add that magical glow that makes that long soak in the bath special. Consider creating a wall grouping of candles for dramatic effect. Or create unusual holders, such as old chandelier light shades.(Keep the matches nearby, you’ll want to light these often!)
Quick, easy and low cost ways to spruce up your bath. After all, private spaces deserve the same attention as the public ones; it’s in our private spaces that we can recharge and refresh our souls!Image Credits: Cereusart, HGTV, Ruth Burts, BHG, Svenn Garden
