Quick And Easy Bathroom Touch Ups
Written by: Stephanie Stevens
Unlike a bedroom or living room, a homeowner doesn't need to purchase new furniture for a bathroom, so it doesn't take much work or money to make a bathroom look significantly better. The first thing to do is to devise a general plan. Decide what kinds of changes to make and set up a budget in order to avoid overspending. Creating a more comfortable and inviting bathroom does not, by any means, have to be expensive or time-consuming.
Areas deserving special attention when sprucing up a bathroom include bathtub or shower, toilet, and sink. When decorating a bathroom, coherence is important. Small things like matching accents are crucial. Rather than purchasing all new fixtures, swapping things like cabinet handles, drawer pulls, faucets and handles on the sink, tub or shower, and toilet with similarly constructed replacements can be just the renovation necessary to give a bathroom that "well put together" look.
Another cheap and simple fix is a fresh coat of paint on the walls. Choosing the right color is essential. The best colors for a bathroom makeover are warm pastels, like a pale yellow. To help create a welcoming feeling, cover any exposed plumbing. Exposed pipes can make any bathroom feel cold and mechanical. If there are pipes visible under the sink, they can easily be covered by attaching a curtain to the bottom of the sink bowl.
With these helpful tips to help draw attention to the subtle details in a room, a homeowner can improve a bathroom not just in the obvious ways, but also in smaller yet equally important ways.
