From rushed morning routines and experimental home haircuts to shower karaoke, your bathroom is one of the busiest rooms in the house. With so many people sharing the same space, we know how fast bathrooms can descend into disarray – especially with teens and little ones involved!
Whether you want to unwind in a candle-lit bubble bath or add a pop of colour with towels and bath mats, a few quick and easy updates can make all the difference. The best part? Our price tags look just as good as our bathroom trends!
1. Time To Clean
When it comes to refreshing your bathroom, cleaning is an essential first step. It might not be your favourite chore, but an afternoon spent cleaning can make even the most well-worn items look brand new. A good scrub can also help reduce the overall costs of updating your space – winner!
2. Maximise Storage With Bathroom Accessories
From toothpaste and shower gel to shavers and soap, bathrooms can quickly fill up with clutter. To keep your space neat and tidy throughout the week, make sure every toiletry has a home with our bathroom accessories.
Woven storage baskets and coordinating pots are ideal for toothbrushes, face washes and moisturisers. Overflowing hair products? Shower baskets are a must for getting organised!
3. Use Mirrors To Lighten & Brighten
As one of the smallest rooms in the home, bathrooms can often feel cramped and dark. Luckily, all you need to create the illusion of a bright and airy bathroom is a well-placed mirror.
The trick is to get imaginative with light-reflecting designs, including stand mirrors and hanging mirrors. Where possible, angle your mirror opposite a window to maximise the impact of this room-enhancing home accessory.
4. Go Green With Artificial Plants
Green touches work wonders in drab and outdated bathrooms. If you don’t trust your plant-keeping abilities (especially in a humid bathroom!), choose life-like artificial plants instead.
Whether you place stylish succulents on window sills, add a tropical touch with cheese plants or go traditional with artificial lilies, forgetting to water your greenery will be a thing of the past!
5. Update Your Towels & Bath Mats
Liven up small bathrooms with sunshine yellow towels in matching prints. Or, to give your space some nautical charm, pair towels and bath mats in soothing shades of sea blue.
6. Style Up Your Bathroom Accessories
Bathroom accessories are the perfect opportunity to style up your space. Thankfully, there’s no shortage of new season options to inspire you. Discover everything from matt black toilet roll holders and pink glaze dispensers to marble sets.
For an earthy vibe that will make your bathroom feel like an island retreat, try bamboo bathroom accessories and sandstone dispensers teamed with tile print shower curtains.
7. Be Bold With Blinds
Blinds aren’t just about giving your bathroom privacy. They’re also a quick and easy way to add colour, texture and depth to your space.
If you’ve chosen a minimalist theme, match your blinds to your accessories with an understated grey design. Or, to inject a splash of colour into a monochrome palette, pick bright blue, yellow or pink roller blinds.
8. Enjoy A Well-Deserved Soak
The very best bathrooms strike the perfect balance between practical and indulgent. As well as being functional, they should also be a place to unwind after a stressful day. There’s not much a well-deserved bubble bath can’t fix!
For a home-spa vibe, decorate window sills with plenty of candles and diffusers. You can also place tealights in terrarium lanterns to create a beautiful glow that’s perfect for moments of stillness.
