Thinking about your next home updates in the run-up to spring? Whether you’re planning a full-scale renovation or you simply want to refresh your space room by room, updating your bathroom is a great place to start. Because your entire family spends time in your bathroom each day, it’s more than likely that this space will benefit the most from some TLC. Turning your bathroom into a relaxing, peaceful oasis is a great way to help you start each day on the brightest note possible.
Introduce Some Greenery
If you’re looking for a quick fix when it comes to updating your bathroom, adding natural elements throughout your space can make a huge difference. Placing succulents, flowering plants, or even hanging ivy around your bathroom can give both your mood and your space a real boost, helping you feel calm and soothed even when your day feels a little rushed.
As well as helping to create beautiful aesthetics within your bathroom, keeping your plants within a steamy, warm room often aids healthy growth, so you can enjoy strong, green, and luscious plants for much longer, too.
Update Your Sink With Smart Taps
With constant innovations taking place, smart gadgets are a great way to take your home comforts to the next level. To add a real luxury element to your bathroom, you could consider investing in a digital tap. Smart taps like iTaps make use of a sensitive touch screen pad to make sure you can always enjoy your preferred water temperature and pressure, whenever you step into your bathroom. As well as being a more hygienic option than traditional taps, digital taps give your space a spa-like feel. That means you can enjoy a real pamper each day, all from the comfort of your own home.
Make Space and Light a Priority
Especially in springtime when sunlight begins to stream in, creating a space that is well-lit and spacious can make all the difference to how relaxing your bathroom feels. Luckily, brightening up your bathroom can be achieved fairly easily, no matter how streamlined your renovation budget is. One easy way to update your space is to hang a mirror opposite your bathroom window. This will reflect light throughout your room so you can enjoy the full benefit of the sun shining.
Your bathroom walls and floors also have an impact on how bright your bathroom feels. Many more modern bathroom designs incorporate subway tiles, or clean layouts and neutral colours. Rather than more traditional patterned tiles or darker colours, cool-toned tiles can help your bathroom feel a lot more roomy. If you’re unsure about taking the plunge with a full new set of tiles, you could look into vinyl stick-on tiles, that are a more cost-effective option to help you update your bathroom as and when you feel the need for a change.
Update Your Soft Furnishings
Because they get so much use each day, your towels, flannels and hand towels can often seem to get a little grubby more quickly. One of the easiest and most cost-effective ways to update your bathroom with a fresh, modern feel is to regularly switch up your hand towels. Especially in neutrally decorated bathrooms, introducing a splash of colour with cheerful hand towels can brighten your space.
If you’re thinking of injecting colour further into your home, you could also consider purchasing a fun bath mat to add another colorful dimension to your space. Whether you choose to leave your mat on the bathroom floor permanently, or you lay it out only when you need to, regularly updating your room with fresh accessories can give your whole space a brand-new feel.
