5 Ways to Dress Up Your Bath, in a Flash, for Little Cash!

by Kathy Wilson


Often the bathroom is one of the most overlooked rooms in the home when it comes to decorating. We tend to see it as a utilitarian space, even though we spend quite a lot of time here
. (More, if you have teenagers!) Take an afternoon to turn your bath into a relaxing and soothing retreat for yourself and your guests, without spending a lot of cash.
1. –Paint the whole room –, including the ceiling a deep, rich color. Even though this is a small room, a deep color on the walls allows them to fade away, and at once makes the room cozy and seems more spacious.

2. – Get rid of the clutter! – If you cantt get most of the makeup and shaving cream under the sink, (and who can?) pick up a few baskets from the dollar shop and corral them in. Make sure there is a hamper. If you are short on space, use the kind that hangs on the back of the door. A large drawstring bag would work for this also. (He might actually even use it ¦ok, its a dream.)

3.– Dress up that large frameless mirror –. Hang swags of fabric from cup hooks to hide and soften the edges of the mirror, and to give it a βœframe. Or actually use cut lengths of 1x4 lumber, and attach them to the wall over the edges of the mirror to simulate a real wood frame. You can paint or stain them as well to coordinate with your cabinets.

4
. – Speaking of cabinets, how about giving them a quick redo –? Paint them black for a sophisticated look, or white with sponge painting for a country theme. Try any of the hot faux finishes. You can even paint the Formica counters. Just clean well and use a special primer first such as BIN or KILZ. Then seal with 4-6 coats of polyurethane after the paint dries. Should last for years!

5. – Lastly, add some detail to the room –. Sew fabric edging to your towels, add a shell for a soap dish, and stitch up a pretty shower curtain to cover that vinyl one. Hang some calendar pictures on the wall in dollar store frames perhaps of a faraway place you can dream about as you soak away your cares? If you have natural light in the room from a window, add a plant or two.




















Now light up some candles, turn on some music, and fill the bath with sweet smelling bubbles. Your getaway awaits!

Decorating your bathroom can be one of the easiest tasks in your decorating jobs. You do not need too much accessories to achieve an attractive bathroom. Just be creative and resourceful in choosing the right materials, which reflects your personality and interest. Bathroom decorating tips can be helpful if you want to decorate your bathroom better.

You can find bathroom decorating tips in books, magazines and in the internet. If you do not have any idea on hoe to design, select those bathroom decorating tips that are appropriate to your own bathroom and try the suggestions given.

Start with the shower curtain. Select the color and design you want, which you think will look good in your bathroom. The paint in your bathroom should match the color of your shower curtain. If you want to make your bathroom appear larger, choose light colors. Complement the shower curtain color the paint of the bathroom.

Towel racks are necessary and place them near the bathtub or toilet. The design of the towel racks must be the same to have a better appeal. Pick towels that have the same shade as the shower curtain. They do not have to be the same color, just the shade. Roll some additional towels in a small stylish basket and place them on the floor.

Rugs for your bathroom floor should also go with the colors of your towels. If your bathroom is spacious, it is a good idea to place rugs by the toilet and the sink.

Add more accessories in the bathroom such as tissue holders, toothbrush holders and soap dispenser. Scented candles can be a nice accent on the vanity and bathtub corners. You can also put some of your collections in the bathroom to personalize your design. Unique bottles, paintings, and small figurines can create a more interesting appeal. Just make sure that you do not overdo the design for it may become cluttered.
