Bathroom Facelifts

Without the expense and pain of major surgery

Here are some tips to take your current bath and give it a shot of style.

Adding new medicine cabinets or faucet fixtures is a great way to give a whole new look to your bathroom. For good deals on these accessories, shop at the end of May and September when many high-end retailers have inventory sales in anticipation of the new merchandise arriving.

A window in a bathroom is a luxury. Do you have a window that brings in lots of natural light? Maintain your privacy but keep the sunshine with a static cling window decal or texture. Cut out a monogram, fun saying or stick with an overall texture. It’s an inexpensive way to enjoy the sunlight, while staying modest. To attach the window cling, you'll need a spray bottle filled with water and one pump of liquid soap, as well as a squeegee. The soap will help manipulate the film easily.

Wallpaper is a great way to add some interest. As a bathroom is typically small, you won’t need a lot so it might be worth a splurge on a paper you love but can’t imagine doing a large room in.

High gloss paint can also provide a little glamor and shine and is easy to clean. 

Add some unexpected furniture. Shop around in your home. Do you have an occasion table or small bookshelf? The addition of some wood or distressed paint can soften the often harder surfaces of stone and tile in a bath. A small piece of furniture can also add an extra storage opportunity for folded towels or pretty creams. Another great display idea is to decant bath salts, scrubs, cotton balls or mouthwash into clear glass bottles. So pretty and functional too!

Add extra towel hooks. Small hooks can increase the function in your space for storage of linens or jewelry.

Switch out some towels. A fresh jolt of color can provide a fresh look. The same is true of your shower curtain. Hang the rod higher for a custom look. Curtain panels from big box stores coupled with a waterproof liner can give you a new feel. Are you crafty? Look for a fabric that gets you excited and grab that sewing machine. Shower curtains are a snap to sew.
