Your bathroom is one of the most frequently used rooms in your home. According to data, the average person spends about 800 days – two years! – of their life in the bathroom.
If your bathroom is your sanctuary, consider a remodeling project that will make your bathroom one of the highlights of your home. Giving it a facelift to make it cozy, beautiful, and a pleasant place to be will surely pay off every time you use it. Here are five inexpensive ways to make your bathroom more luxurious.
Install an ethanol fireplace
Taking a bath or a shower during the winter months can be uncomfortable, especially if your bathroom takes some time to warm up. Mounting an ethanol fireplace in your bathroom will solve this problem, as it gives off heat without the use of firewood, and you get to enjoy the warmth without the smoke or toxic fumes. It’s also very safe, so you don’t need to worry about getting burned or inhaling bad odors while you relax in the tub.
Update the lights
Ever notice how the best hotel bathrooms never have just one basic light bulb for illumination? Take your cues from your favorite hotel bathrooms and install beautiful sconces on each side of the mirror. For an elegant touch, hang a mini chandelier over the bathtub to cast a warm glow.
Upgrade pulls and knobs
Freshen the look of bathroom cabinets and vanity drawers by replacing the pulls and knobs. Visit vintage stores or flea markets for one-of-a-kind finds, or head to a specialty store for unique hardware.
Add some wood elements
Incorporating some wood elements in your bathroom will give it a spa-like feel. Consider leaning a decorative wooden ladder against the wall and use it to hang towels. You can also place a small wood table and use it to display pretty perfume bottles. Decant mouthwash, bath salts, cotton balls and cotton swabs into decorative glass containers and place them alongside your perfume collection.
Swap out your bathroom accessories
Replace your toilet seat with a new one, and swap out your basic towel bar and toilet paper holder with matching accessories. Finally, take down your old shower curtain and hang up two patterned fabric curtain panels. Make sure to pair your fabric with a clear shower liner to block water spatters and suds.
