You may confine visitors who visit you during the holidays to your festively decorated living room as much as you want. However, they’ll always need to use the restroom. You can easily spruce up this most useful area by following these inexpensive tips.
Change the Hardware
Changing the hardware is one of the easiest ways to update the look of your bathroom and is something that can be done all at once or a little at a time, depending on your time and budget. If you’re doing it in stages, start with fixtures that are most visible to visitors, such as sink faucets and towel racks, and move to less-visible items, such as tub spouts and drains. As a bonus, your changes will also look good after the holidays. Chrome is a great option to use; it adds modernity and reflects light.
Celebrate with the Shower Curtain
Shower curtains are available pre-printed with a variety of holiday themes, so hanging one of them announces your commitment to the celebration. Emphasize the season by adding ornaments from the shower curtain rings, or a shiny garland along the curtain rod. For a permanent upgrade to the look of your bathroom, contact DeSola Glass to inquire about installing a shower glass door.
Transform with Paint
Nothing changes the look of a room more dramatically than a different coat of paint on the walls. This is something you can do yourself or hire professionals to complete. If you’re pressed for time, one accent wall in a different color gives your bathroom a fresh feel. Be sure to stick with gloss or semi-gloss paint for easier maintenance. And you can also paint your vanity if it has wood surfaces.
Decorate with Theme Linens
Another quick fix and one that visitors notice immediately is to put out themed linens in the form of holiday hand, bath, and face towels. You can layer these linens on one towel bar, or spread them around the room, such as on the counter, on the side of the tub, or hanging from a shower bar.
Update the Mirror
The mirror is often the first thing that visitors see when entering your bathroom. Not only do they use it to primp themselves but it can be the largest fixture in the room that reflects the most light. Updating it can have a large impact on the appearance of this room. If you have a frameless mirror, you don’t even have to go through the cumbersome process of removing it. All you have to do is stick a custom-made MirrorMate® frame around it, and you’ll have a brand new mirror for your bath. Over 65 styles are available, so you’ll easily find one that matches your current décor.
