Quick and Easy Ways to Freshen Up Your Bathroom
Bathrooms are important rooms. We spend quite a bit of time in them, so you want it to keep it looking nice. To help you to do this, even if you are on a tight budget, I have put together this post. They are all easy projects, and you can buy what you need to complete them in stores like Better Bathrooms, so everyone use these suggestions in their own homes.
Over time, out bathrooms tend to get a bit cluttered. Most of us use a lot of personal products. They take up a lot of space, look untidy and make keeping your bathroom clean a lot harder than it needs to be. Therefore, it is a good idea to periodically go through your bathroom and throw away anything you do not really need.
Add more storage
If you can add some extra storage to make keeping your bathroom tidy easier. The cost of bathroom cabinets has fallen recently, but these are not your storage only option. You could give everyone a basket to use, or revamp an old set of drawers. Using waterproofing paint you can make any item of furniture fit for use in a damp environment. Each member of the family can be given a drawer. Provided they use it, this will keep your bathroom looking tidy and make it far easier to clean.
Refresh your grout
Over time, the grout in your bathroom will age and start to look grubby. This happens even if you regularly wash down your tiles.
Fortunately, restoring your grout is actually quite easy. There are plenty of good quality products available that are effective. Most DIY stores stock these products.
If you do decide to use one, just be careful not to skip over the preparation part of the process. You really do need to thoroughly clean the grout before applying the restorer. If you do not do this, the results will be patchy, and you will have to repeat the job after just a couple of months.
Renew your flooring
Another quick way to update your bathroom is to replace the flooring. These days, it is easy to buy laminate flooring materials that are specifically designed for use in the bathroom. This type will not go moldy and is covered with a non-slip surface. As you can see from this video, laying laminate flooring is not difficult. This means that it is a task that most people can master.
Bring the outside in
Adding a couple of plants to a bathroom is an easy way to brighten it up. It is also good for your health. Studies show that even one or two spider plants will clean up the air in your bathroom.
Buy some fluffy towels
We all love fluffy towels. Buying a couple is a quick and easy way to add a touch of luxury to any bathroom. If you are on a really tight budget you could ask for them as birthday and Christmas presents.
