How to upgrade your bathroom without the construction


Sometimes, the new year inspires a fresh start that goes beyond bettering your health and wellness. Perhaps you’re interested in starting off fresh with redesigning a room in your home. But that doesn’t mean you have to bust out the caution tape and close the space off for months at a time. There are creative ways that you can reconfigure your bathroom without putting in the hard labor that comes with demolition. With a few simple adjustments, you can transform this haven for relaxation, giving it a revamped look that mimics a completely gutted and refurbished bathroom.

Creating an entirely new look in your living space doesn’t have to be so complicated. Here are a few suggestions for upgrading your bathroom without the construction:

Pick a new color scheme
If it’s your current theme or color that seems outdated in the bathroom, reconsider a new scheme. According to Elle Decor, there are a variety of colors that are expected to be trendy in 2019, such as misty blues, forest greens, off-cream, electric citrus and dusty blush. Therefore, if you’re looking to lighten things up or take a darker, more cozy route, there’s likely a trending shade for you based on your personal preference. You can incorporate these colors throughout your bathroom, from the body and hand towels in the closet to the small accessories on display.

Think about the walls
Your bathroom walls have a major impact on how the rest of the room is enjoyed by you, your family members and guests. While picking your color scheme, think about what shade you’ll use to paint the walls. Alternatively, consider an accent wall with a bold print wallpaper. Making this change can ensure the total transformation you’re going for.

“Don’t leave the walls blank after painting.”

Don’t leave the walls blank after painting. The bathroom is just as much of a canvas for artwork and photos as any other room in your home. Consider a variety of pieces to hang that will flow with your color scheme and overall theme.

Go wild with new accessories
From towels and rugs, to the shower curtain and window treatments, there are so many accessories that need an update during this transformation. If you’re having trouble coming up with a theme, simply rely on a trending color scheme. From there, you can decide how you’ll incorporate different styles, textures and patterns into your basic bathroom accessories.

Don’t forget the small toiletry accessories as well! A new soap dish, lotion dispensers and toothbrush stand can work wonders for your bathroom vanity.

Add new scents to the space
Now, think outside the box of redesign. When was the last time you placed new scented soaps and lotions near the faucet, or different body scrub in the shower? Once you’ve redesigned your bathroom, think about new ways to satisfy your senses. A variety of scented candles placed throughout the space is another fun and simple opportunity to create a soothing atmosphere.

While skipping the demolition makes bathroom redesign easier to tackle, you may still be on the fence about which moves you should complete in your own home. Instead of stressing over redecorating, contact a personal decorator from Decorating Den Interiors.
