The idea of enhancing our bathrooms usually brings about thoughts of tedious work and high expenditure. These are the common reasons that prevent us from giving these essential areas of our homes a lift. While this task can certainly be monetarily demanding and time-consuming, there are ways to improve both their form and functionality without investing a small fortune in them. Setting aside a little bit of time as well as a reasonably realistic budget is all it takes. Here are a few smart ways of giving your bathrooms a lift.
Get a frameless shower enclosure
The modern approach to most bathroom designs of today often involves elements of elegance alongside openness, and what better way to achieve this than the addition of one of the many stylish shower enclosures available. Not only do they add a luxurious feel to the area, but they are relatively easy to clean and maintain too. Because of the lack, or sparse use, of metal, they’re future-proofed for corrosion as well. It’s an affordable and practical bathroom addition, and its rising popularity among a great many homeowners comes as no surprise.
Upgrade your vanity mirror
Another easy way to boost the look and feel of your bathroom is by upgrading your vanity mirror. There are plenty of creative and unique variations to choose from, and you certainly won’t run out of options. One particular style that is sure to impress and save some space in the process is having a frameless and floating variant. It also reduces maintenance, as being devoid of any edges makes it difficult for dirt and other nasty things to stick, and it’s easier to clean.
Be creative and repurpose old household items
Everyone has items that have seen better days and are no longer used in their household but can still be refurbished and repurposed. Unused fruit baskets and old boxes can be used to stow toiletries and other essentials while old drawers can be fashioned into storage for various bathroom products. The key here is to be creative and resourceful. You don’t necessarily have to buy everything new in order to give your bathroom a lift. All you’ll need is a little bit of time and effort in cleaning or refurbishing these items. It’s a task well-worth doing as it will save you a lot money; avoiding expenditure in new products.
These are just three smart ways of improving both the form and function of your bathroom in a sensible and frugal way. Having a big budget set aside for this task is certainly helpful but many of us can ill-afford high expenditure. But having a lot of money isn’t everything, and a little creativity and some willingness to spend more time on research can go a long way in yielding the desired results for the bathroom of your dreams.
