No area of our home gets dirtier and grimier faster than our bathroom. If you’ve been in the same place for a few years, it may be time for an update. Here’s how to make your bathroom cleaner and look brand new.
Everyone who enters your home will probably visit your bathroom. If that’s the case, then don’t you want their lasting impression to be a good one? A dirty or ugly bathroom seems to say a lot about a person, and it usually isn’t good.
If you’re looking for a few ways to make your bathroom cleaner and look fresh, you’re in luck! Below, we’ll cover five quick ways to spruce up your bathroom without performing an expensive overhaul.
How to Easily Make Your Bathroom Cleaner and Stylish
If the bathroom needs an update, a few simple design choices can help you pull off a cleaner, fresher look. For instance, adding a potted plant or two may be all the update you need!
However, here are some other useful tactics for easily sprucing up an outdated bathroom or washroom:
1. A New Shower Curtain
Shower curtains can develop mold and discoloration, making your bathroom appear dirtier than it is.
Considering how much visual space the shower curtain takes up, it’s no wonder that investing in a new one can overhaul the design by itself. If you’ve gone for wild patterns, consider something clean and sleek or choose a textured white curtain.
Pair the shower curtain as best you can to things you can’t replace (like shower tiles and countertops).
2. Window Dressings
If you’re lucky enough to have a window in your bathroom, you’re probably covering it up somehow to preserve privacy. If you have dressings or curtains on the windows, know that they’re just like dust rags that discolor with light exposure.
Freshen up the windows and keep out old dust by changing any dressings around the window periodically.
3. New Wallpaper (or No Wallpaper)
Wallpaper, in general, is typically considered an outdated decoration. However, there are plenty of stylish wallpapers available today to fit a clean, modern taste.
Your wallpaper may be gathering mold or discoloring with light exposure (as well as dirt and grime from everyday use). Taking it down, painting the walls, or replacing it can change up the whole mood and feel of your bathroom.
4. Clean or Change Out Grout
The grout around your bathroom tiles are hotspots for grime and dirt to gather. Sometimes a little bleaching or bathroom cleaner will help to remove some of the build-up.
If the problem seems out of your hands, you may need to do some regrouting, which is done best by the professionals. There’s more info here about quality grout cleaning from the Grout Experts.
5. Hang Art
If the walls are bare, it can lead the eye to the dirty corners of the room–those places that seem to always fight back against your cleaning efforts. Distract the eye by hanging interesting or thought-provoking art on the walls.
Make sure to match up the art with the bathroom design as best you can so everything looks clean and cohesive.
