Ways to Improve Your Bathroom

With the beautiful sunny days that we have been having, it has been a lovely time to renovate and declutter your home. Especially with the summer coming up and having company over, you might be feeling like certain parts of your home need some extra love.

There are many ways to go about improving your home. Sprucing up the bathroom is a way to start, especially during the summer your kids may have friends over, you may even have friends or family over yourself. The bathroom will definitely get used a ton. Whether you are on a budget to clean up an old bathroom to feel brand new or need ways to open the space up when renovating, there's always something you can do to improve the space.

DIY’s to Clean up an Old Bathroom:

Tidy up the space: This may seem self explanatory but there's a lot you can do that can change the space instantly. First, you can start by cleaning up grout. If your white grout has become dingy and gray, you may purchase a grout whitener to restore it to its former glory. You may occasionally obtain colored grout restorers if you have colored grout, however color matching may be a difficulty. But the best way to go about cleaning grout is getting a good brush and some cleaner and getting in the grout lines to really tidy the place up. This step alone can bring life back to the bathroom. Next if you are feeling like updating the tile but not wanting to spend all of that money, places like amazon sell peel and stick tiles. Do your research to see what may work best for your bathroom but this is a simple and cheaper alternative then retiling the entire space. If your bathroom has no tile and just paint, a fresh coat of paint can go a long way unless you are tired of the plain and boring look. You can always revamp the space with some wallpaper which is also renter friendly!

Updating the decor: If your budget allows it then you could bring in new textures and colors which can completely can the entire vibe of the bathroom. Adding to the visual appeal of the space could be as simple as adding a new mirror or adding a new tray to tidy up the counter. Even adding some plants for color and a new hamper could be all your bathroom needs for a newer look.

Now here are some tips that could be helpful for renovating your bathroom on a bigger scale:

Deciding on whether you want a bathtub or a standing shower, depending on what you decide changes how you go about renovating. Different vibes from glass doors to different shower heads, etc.

Considering Lighting: A bathroom must have an adequate source of lighting whether it's from a skylight, window or just a light fixture you have. A bathroom is where you or a guest get ready, check themselves before they head back out to interact with people or even where you go to relax at the end of the day. With that being said bathrooms are often dark, tight spaces with few to no windows, making it impossible to see where you're going or what you're treading on without sufficient lighting. The greatest bathroom lighting contributes to the creation of a relaxing and rejuvenating environment, the payback is huge when it's done correctly. Consider all lighting options when going to renovate your space.

Adding Tile: If your previous bathroom was just paint on the walls you may want to consider adding tiles to an accent wall or in the shower space. Adding tile to the space allows for more versatility and allows for more design options in the long run.
