Major bathroom renovations are strenuous and time-consuming which is why they are best left to the pros. While we don’t recommend knocking down walls or doing your own tiling, there are still many updates you can do yourself. Let’s take a look at five bathroom updates you can do while you are spending time at home.
The Self Shelf
Many bathrooms and powder rooms do not provide a substantial amount of storage. This will leave you storing necessities in other rooms or cabinets. If you are struggling to fit all your essentials in your designated space, install some small fixtures to maximize. Try adding shelving on walls, corners, above a vanity, and on top of your toilet for extra room. These additions also contribute to the aesthetic of your bathroom. Try placing your belongings in baskets and containers on these shelves to keep the space crisp.
Although shelving is a fantastic hack to maximize space, you may want to hide away some personal materials. Try attaching a shower caddie or small basket inside your sink cabinet to the back of the door, or inside your wall cabinet. In addition, you can store extra toiletries in baskets under your sink to keep the place clutter-free. This will keep your room clean while hiding the important essentials away. By adding these little touches, your space will be organized in no time.
You may think of painting as a quick and easy way to change the look of a room, and you are not wrong. In addition to your walls, you can also paint your vanity, cabinets, and your new shelving! This is a great way for you to freshen up your bathroom without having to install new plumbing fixtures, tiles or faucets. With a bit of time on your hands, try spray painting some fixtures as a fun project. This will transform your bathroom into one out of a magazine, and you can tell everyone you Did It Yourself!
Towels and Toilet Paper
