It’s no secret that renovating your bathroom is not a cheap task to undertake. In fact, the costs associated with a complete bathroom makeover are often enough to lead homeowners to simply accept the bathroom they have and focus their energy and budget on other areas of the home.
And while there may not be much that you can do to reduce the price of a bathroom renovation, there are small changes which you can make to keep its style updated and make it a more inviting space.
Change the Color
The first place to start is with a fresh coat of paint, and one that isn’t white! That’s right! There isn’t a rule or a law that says that your bathroom needs to be painted white. When choosing your color, look for something which complements any tiles you have along with any cabinets.
Of course, it’s important that you choose a paint which is designed for bathroom use or at the least for use in humid areas, otherwise, you will find yourself peeling off paint and starting again in a matter of months.
Lighting Is Everything
Have you ever wondered why look so good in the mirror at your hairdresser or the department store makeup counter but when you return home all of the glamour seems to be gone?
The truth is that the lighting around you plays a large role in how you look when you prepare yourself in the mirror. This means that if you are looking up at a white ceiling with a single light bulb in the middle, you are looking at the culprit for your perception of bad looks!
Easily swap it out for a smart LED light bulb which can be connected to your smartphone and provide you with a range of options, like:
- Change the color to better suit your new paint
- Adjust the brightness
- Adjust the tone
- Make it a flashing disco
There are so many lighting adjustments that you can make by using one simple smart bulb which can bring new looks to your bathroom. For example, you could set the light to be dim when you wake up in the middle of the night to use the bathroom but have it adjust its brightness during the day so that you have a clear reflection.
If you are just using a standard mirror then you are wasting your precious bathroom space. Head to your local hardware stores and browse the range of storage-mirrors. While you shouldn’t expect a mirror deep enough to store your towels, one which opens up to provide enough shelf space to store your medication, lotion, and any rejuvenating creams you found on the Groupon Coupons page for American Eagle.
If you want to take this tip to the next level, look for a mirror which includes LED strip lighting around the border to give you a more glamorous look and feel!
Keeping the style of your bathroom updated isn’t a hard task and as you can see from the tips above it certainly isn’t an expensive one.
