Bathroom decoration can be a challenge for most of us, especially if we own an old place that hasn’t seen much attention over the years, but we can really make a difference if we put our minds to the task. The following tips will give you more information you can count on to make it happen without a hitch, starting with the first task you can deal with:
There is a real difference between the looks of a designer shower curtain and the usual, basic white ones we often buy when we need something that gets the job done. If you want to achieve that same look for less money than usual, then you can pick a plain curtain and add the embellishments yourself, such as using ribbons, fabric glue and paint if you feel like it. You can even use the same type of technique to deal with bath towels as well.
Create your own towel bars
Using reclaimed materials around the bathroom is one great way to create a budget-friendly, yet great-looking bathroom solution. This will work especially well when you want to repurpose a number of items for bathroom use. Wood towel bars can be easily repurposed for this, using packing palettes and repurposing them for your needs to create a good, rustic look before you decide to let go of these items.
Creating art with found objects
Everyday objects can be appropriated around your bathroom if you can look at them through different eyes. You can make use of them in new ways, creating artistic solutions you may not have been able to see before. Before you move on to furniture clearance, waste clearance and the like, you would do well to double check the items you have available and see what you can do with them.
Create shelves with DIY solutions
Display shelving doesn’t really need to be all that expensive; in fact you can make all of this with a few easy craft store crates and a bit of paint to deal with things. Stacking the cabinets will allow you more storage space you can use, especially if the colors on the shelves can double as wall art. You would be surprised at the amount of options you can use when you’ve been through a junk disposal around your old home or you managed to find some second hand items.
Dressing the ceiling
If you want to make a new look for your bathroom, then you can change the ceiling into something far more interesting than it was before. Stenciling the ceiling will create an exciting new look for your surfaces without too much work involved in the process. Considering this is one of the most often ignored surfaces around your bathroom, you would do well to spruce things up a bit. This is one especially useful approach after a house clearance of your previous home, as you will have a chance to work on making your home look great.
Hiding the clutter using a sink skirt
If you have a lot of junk laying around your bathroom and you want to keep it, instead of dealing with junk removal, then you will need to find a way to keep it hidden. A sink skirt will get this done; hiding both the plumbing and what you need to hide. You can do this with a number of solutions, such as using a good fabric with a pattern, suzani, damask or ikat for example to create a visually stunning solution.
