Is your bathroom feeling a little grimy and lifeless? It’s not a nice feeling, is it? Don’t worry though, giving your bathroom its sparkle back needn’t be hard work.
Repaint the Walls
Cleaning the bathroom is important (and we’ll come to that later), but sometimes the bathroom just needs a new coat of paint. The old paintwork will start to look tired and dull after a few years, so you’ll probably have no choice. Paint and tiles are usually the best options for bathrooms; wallpaper is more of a risk.
Wallpaper can look great, but it can often overwhelm a bathroom if the pattern doesn’t quite work, or if the room is small. Therefore, I’d recommend you go for the safe option and paint the walls instead. The color you go for should be something simple and light. Dark colors will make a small room feel even smaller.
Give it a Deep Clean
As I’m sure you already know all too well, bathrooms get dirty, and they can be a real pain to clean. That’s why so many of us put off the job until we can’t leave it any longer. The job is made a lot easier if you do it continually as you go along though. But how do you go about cleaning it if it hasn’t been cleaned for ages?
Start by cleaning the surfaces. Your window ledges, the inside of the shower, the toilet, sink and floor will all gather a lot of dirt and grime if they’re not cleaned regularly. To give the floor a deeper clean, you should have a professional do the grout cleaning for you. Then, you can clean the inside of the toilet, the shower, and all the faucets.
Buy a New Mirror
Mirrors really do make a room feel bigger and give the space a new lease of life. They create extra light by reflecting it around the room. So, if you haven’t got a big, stylish mirror in your bathroom, you really need one. If you ask me, when it comes to bathroom mirrors, the bigger, the better.
You can find all kinds of mirrors, so there should be one out there for everyone, no matter what your tastes and style requirements are. If you want something a little different and quirky, why not have a look around antique shops, auctions and junk sales. You can often find a lot of interesting stuff this way.
Clear Out Any Clutter
Although we might not like to admit it, a lot of of us end up filling our bathrooms with junk that we don’t really need. When you’re short on storage space, you take the chance to fill up every inch of spare storage space you have. But a great bathroom shouldn’t be filled with clutter.
So, get rid of all the junk that’s filling your bathroom if you haven’t done it already. It’ll look a lot better for it, I assure you.
If you follow these simple tips, your bathroom will start to look better than it has looked for years!
