Do you want to update your bathroom, but you aren’t quite ready to commit to a full scale renovation? Here are our tips to get your DIY bathroom update started. We hope you find these four easy things you can do at home helpful.

1. Update Accessories

The easiest way to renew your bathroom without a full renovation is to simply update your accessories. A white shower curtain goes a long way to making your bathroom feel like a larger, fresher space. Next, you can coordinate with white hand towels, white bath mats and a new piece of black and white art for the wall. Worried your bathroom will look too plain? Add some colour in with new, leafy green plants.

2. Update Your Bathroom by Adding Storage and by Decluttering

While you are out shopping for your new accessories, keep an eye out for storage ideas. A wicker basket is a stylish piece for the bathroom and it will help keep your clutter to a minimum. If you find you still have too many items constantly out on your countertops, it might be time to declutter. The rule of thumb is to get rid of anything you haven’t used in the past year.

3. Paint and Wallpaper

A fresh coat of paint will make your bathroom feel brand new and hide any wear and tear on the walls. Grey and white are great colour options for making the room feel larger, plus they are current with the latest trends. If you’re daring enough, you can add an accent wall using textured wallpaper.

4. New Fixtures

The last step is to look at the small bathroom renovations you can make. These include updating light fixtures, sink faucets, towel racks and cabinet handles. Selecting the same finish for all of these items and coordinating them will have a huge impact. The latest trend is black and it will look beautiful with your white accessories, wicker baskets and green plants.
