Five simple solutions for remodelling the bathroom space.

How to Spruce Up the Bathroom Without Major Renovations

There are many solutions to restyling and remodelling the bathroom without spending lots of money or having to bring in a construction crew. With a little creativity and a few simple steps, you can transform your bathroom into a stylish and inviting retreat. From new accessories to painting the walls, here are five ideas for how to achieve a new look in your bathroom without breaking the bank.

1. Accessories

New accessories are a great way to create a noticeable décor change, whether it is about making a bolder statement in the bathroom or adding in subtle elements to give it a Zen-like feel. Small details and proper organization can make a world of difference in the overall look and functionality of your bathroom. Replace old, mismatched accessories, such as soap dispensers and toothbrush holders, with a coordinated set such as Ona Collection that complements your new colour scheme. Alternatively, try new finishes such as matt black or rose gold for a pop of colour and style.

Consider adding open shelving or storage baskets to keep your bathroom organized and clutter-free. Use stylish containers or jars to store cotton balls, swabs, and other small items. Towels are a fun way to create a new look as well. Try new colours or textures – such as hammam-style towels from Turkey or Morocco, elegant linen towels or the classic terrycloth in a variety of tones and weights.

2. Remodelling the bathroom with new mirrors

Another easy accessory update is mirrors. On trend right now are backlit mirrors, which create a relaxed mood in the bathroom. A new mirror can open up a bathroom space, adding better lighting for putting on makeup, creating a better overall mood, and making a small space look bigger. Another idea is to change the shape of a mirror, for example, replacing a square mirror for a circle can add a vintage or art-deco look.

3. Walls

One of the most effective and affordable ways to restyle your bathroom is by giving it a fresh coat of paint. Choose a colour scheme that complements your existing fixtures and creates the atmosphere you desire. Light and neutral shades can make a small bathroom feel more spacious, while bold colours can add drama and personality.

Another great way to spruce up the bathroom is with wallpaper, which can instantly add texture, pattern, and personality to the bathroom space. Whether you choose a bold, eye-catching design or a subtle, textured pattern, wallpaper can be a game-changer in transforming your bathroom into a stylish oasis.

4. Fixtures and Fittings

Upgrading your bathroom fixtures can significantly transform its overall look and feel. Start with the faucet, as it’s a focal point that catches the eye. Replace an outdated or worn faucet with a modern, sleek design that suits your style. Consider choosing water-saving options to make your bathroom eco-friendly as well.

Another element that can make a big impact in bathroom renovations is the vanity. If your budget allows, replace the entire vanity with a new one that matches your desired aesthetic. However, if that’s not feasible, consider repainting or refinishing the existing vanity and replacing the hardware for a fresh and updated appearance.

5. Lighting

Upgrading your lighting fixtures can greatly enhance the ambiance of your bathroom. Install energy-efficient LED lights that provide a bright, yet warm illumination. Consider adding task lighting around the mirror for improved functionality and an added touch of elegance or use wall sconces or pendant lights to create a warm and inviting atmosphere.
