We understand that a bathroom remodel isn’t in everyone’s budget when they want a change. With this in mind, we thought we’d share a few ideas that may help you live with your bathroom a bit longer before you call a remodeling company – hopefully us – for your bathroom remodel.
Clear the Clutter
Clutter can cause stress. It makes us think that we need to clean things up. If your goal is to relax, organize the storage in your bathroom so you don’t see clutter. That may mean investing in some baskets for your shelving or even buying a cart that you can roll out of sight.
Change the Color
Think about the colors you’d find in a spa. They’re soft, calming and inviting. What color are your walls now? Most bathrooms can be painted with one gallon. This simple investment will cost only about $50. Want to really feel surrounded by luxury? Paint the ceiling a shade lighter or darker than the walls. It will feel like a new space entirely. Once you’ve picked a paint color, accent it with new towels, a soft, luxurious rug and wall décor that reflects the feel you want. You can spend $100 or much more, depending on your budget.
What better way to escape a hectic day than to relax and unwind in your tub? Enhance your experience with sound. Whether you love the sound of waves crashing on the beach, a gentle rainstorm or your favorite music, Bluetooth makes it easier than ever – no wires to run and you can add the speakers just about anywhere in the space (either battery-powered or ones you plug in).
Choose some scents that soothe you. For some, that’s a soft floral like lavender or vanilla. For others, coconut and citrus do the trick. Whether you opt for candles, burners or a diffuser, enjoy completely surrounding yourself in scents that relax you. If you need a quick pick-me-up in the morning, switch out those soothing scents with something energizing like peppermint, orange and lime or grapefruit, eucalyptus and rosemary.
Add Carefully Planned Elements
When you’re in a spa, you’ll notice the counters or tables are carefully decorated. Think about what you see on those. Many include greenery, often in the form of live plants. If you don’t have a green thumb, choose some faux plants or dried flowers. Put together a basket for yourself with some indulgent creams, soaps, bath bombs or salts. Even on days you can’t take advantage of a relaxing bath, just seeing those elements and knowing that you can soon enjoy them can put you at ease.
