Sunny days are beginning to outnumber those gray days of winter. Spring is here and it is a new beginning; everything is fresh, new and bright. When you think of your bathroom, do you get the same feeling?  Bathrooms should be like spring! If yours has more of the drab, dark days of winter feel, it is probably time for a rebirth, a cleansing and a makeover.

The best part, giving your bathroom a springtime boost doesn’t have to break the bank or become a time dump! There are several ways to dress up your bathroom with minimal labor, no remodeling, and certainly only a small dent in the wallet. 

You can make your bathroom feel like a spring day, pretty and fresh, in a few hours and with a few dollars. However, sometimes it calls for a bathroom pro to come in and create your vision. Contact a bathroom contractor today to find pros in your area for free.

Soften Hard Lines

Bathrooms are typically filled with cold, hard lines from the vanity, to the tub, to the fixtures. So, one easy way to give your bathroom a quick and inexpensive makeover is to add a soft touch to give your space the balance it needs; one quick way is to replace and upgrade your bathroom linens. Absorbency, softness, and durability are the three keys to consider when you are buying new linens for your bathroom. Of course, you can’t have a makeover that doesn’t make design and color choice a priority, too.

When it comes to absorbency and softness, then you want something that is made of a cotton rayon blend or Egyptian cotton. Keep in mind that the softer they are, possibly the shorter the life cycle, but hey, maybe a yearly linen makeover isn’t such a bad thing.

Also, don’t be too scared about straying from cotton when you are in the market for super soft. Rayon towels actually give cotton a run for their money. Two-Ply towels are going to have increased longevity while one-ply will be less durable and need to be replaced more often.

Choose Bathroom Linen Colors

This year’s popular color for your living and outdoor spaces are blushes, warm neutrals, jewel tones and even last year’s color of the year violet are popular ways to liven up your bathroom this spring. For more, check out 2019 Bathroom Trends for other ideas.

Every Room Needs A Statement Piece

Be on the lookout for one statement piece and a few accessories that will tie in all the colors and the mood that you want your bathroom to have. You don’t have to replace all your accessories, but by just putting in a new picture or a decorative mirror you can give your bathroom some much-needed charm. Of course, one trip to Bed, Bath, and Beyond and you’ll have more accessories than you know what to do with. Don’t overdo it and clutter up your space but find pieces that contribute to the overall feel and to meeting your biggest needs!

Get A New Shower Curtain

Upgrading the look of your shower in 10 minutes is definitely a great way to freshen up your bathroom, and you don’t need a carpenter or a magic wand! By changing your shower curtain, you can give your bathroom a facelift without much effort, time or money!  Consider getting two shower curtains instead of one so that they can open up in the middle

Also, consider the waffled and textured curtains that give your bathroom some much-needed texture with its smooth and shiny surfaces. Another recommendation is installing a curved shower curtain. Not only does it instantly add a nice curve to juxtapose all those hard lines often found in bathrooms, but it actually gives you more space. You can take a leisurely shower without bumping your elbows into the curtain! Check out other ways to decorate a small bathroom.

Style Your Shower Curtain

Finally, another simple change you can make along with luxury linens is changing the curtain rings. There are some that will add beauty and style, and there are also some that can simplify the process of changing and washing your shower curtain or replacing the liner (which doesn’t seem that amazing but feels like a life-changer). The double-sided curtain hooks have a hook on the front and a hook on the back, so the curtain and the liner hang from different hooks. No more taking down both to get to one! 

Along with towels, rugs, and a new shower curtain, it might be time to replace some of those functional accessories and maybe even throw in a new accessory like a unique wall hanging, piece of art, or decorative mirror to transform the space. On the other hand, maybe, it’s time to take out that old vanity, knock out a wall, put in the jacuzzi tub you’ve always wanted, and create the luxurious oasis you’ve imagined. If you’re ready to make those larger installations, get in contact with a bathroom contractor today.
