Your bathroom might not exactly be what dreams are made of but there are always a couple of things that can be done to spruce up a drab space. No matter if you own your own home or if you are renting. You might have not paid special attention to it before but a functional, clean, and inviting space will help you start your day off right, especially on days you do not want to leave the comfort of your bed.
Fix and Clean
To kick off your bathroom facelift, give it a thorough clean. Do not just tickle the surface, really get into all the little nooks and crannies and give it all a deep scrub. Focus on getting rid of lime scale build up and possible mould. Make sure to clean the tiles also and scrub down your bathtub, shower cubicle, and toilet as well. Focus on cleaning the grouting, it may require elbow grease. You could also use a grout pen if it is really stained and discoloured. Giving your bathroom a thorough clean will help bring back its former sparkle.
Replace or switch out broken or outdated bathroom accessories. This will instantly give your bathroom a whole new lease of life. Investing in a new toilet roll holder for example from GROHE or changing out old taps and shower heads will have a big impact on your space and make it feel more luxurious.
This is an easy way to update a tired bathroom and can also be renter friendly. Choose a colour that you love or one that will boost your mood in the morning. Think about how you want to feel in the space. Blue and green can leave you feeling calm and relaxed. Opting for a yellow hue can energise and be uplifting. Shades of white are popular and can give a sense of cleanliness and purity.
Adding plants will not only help with air quality and but can also boost your mood. Don’t worry if your bathroom is rather dark. You can choose plants that will survive in north facing rooms such as a Sanseveria (snake plant) or a Zizi plant to name a few. If you have no natural light you could invest in a grow light.

Add storage where possible to hide away all the items that you don’t want on display such as cleaning products and toilet rolls. Place an extra shelf over the toilet to save space. If you can’t drill any holes then opt for aesthetically pleasing storage baskets that can double as a small table, ideal for displaying plants, or placing your phone on whilst you’re in the bath.
Once you’ve spruced up your bathroom, why not go one step further and turn your bathroom into a relaxing spa. Creating a mini oasis for you to relax in after a long day at work can help recharge your batteries.
