Sometimes your bathroom could use a breath of fresh air, but a renovation may not be in the budget or you may not have the time to tackle any big projects. There are some quick DIY fixes that you can do to revamp your bathroom, that will make you fall in love with it all over again. Start by optimizing the space that you have. This is especially important if you have a small bathroom. Pull everything out of your drawers and cupboards. Refresh your drawers with contact paper in the bottom and a squirt of your favorite perfume. Buy caddies or small drawers to keep things organized under your sink. This will help keep you counters clutter free. If you want even more organization, head to your hardware store and pick up wire storage racks. While you’re there, pick up new hardware, like towel bars, a toilet paper holder, and maybe even a shower head. The fixes get even easier from there. Buy new plush towels and pick out new window treatments. Get creative and think of unique ways you can cover your window, like with stained glass. Now take care of your lighting. Start by cleaning all your shades and bulbs. You will be amazed at the dust that is sitting on your bulbs and prohibiting light from coming through. Consider adding a small lamp to give the space a cozier feel. Then finish with some decorative touches to really personalize the space. You can do all of these projects this weekend and have a new bathroom by Monday.
Even if you can’t afford the time and expense of a complete bathroom renovation, you can still make dramatic changes without moving a wall or replacing a sink. Here are a few easy-to-do ideas for increasing the function and beauty of your bath. Wasted space can be reclaimed and a logical system for storing your hygiene and cleaning supplies can be set up if you spend an hour going through your cabinets.
