Weekend Bathroom Update | 10 Simple Ways to Refresh Your Bathroom

Over the weekend, I decided to hit the refresh button on my bathroom.  Still feeling the momentum of the start of 2016, I thought this would be the perfect time to tackle some home projects that I had put off. Overall, I’m pretty satisfied with the look and feel of my apartment, but my bathroom just seemed to lack personality. Although, I love the feeling of tranquility that I get when I walk into my all white, subway tiled bathroom, I could no longer ignore the fact that I had no place to store my towels, a lot of blank wall space and a “Hello Kitty” soap dispenser.

If you’re also looking for ways to update your bathroom, without doing a full reno, here are “10 Simple Ways to Refresh Your Bathroom”.

1. Update your bath linens.

I chose white bath towels to bring a spa/hotel feel to my bathroom. 



 2. Switch out your shower curtain.

 If you’re anything like me, you probably already have one or two in your linen closet. 



3. Find a new scent to keep your bathroom smelling nice and fresh.

4. Bring new life to your walls with some wall art or a fun bathroom door sign to make sure your guests know exactly where the bathroom is. I bought this cute vintage “Toilet” sign from Trinity Vintage Home.

5. Hang wall shelves, to create extra storage space.

I chose to make my shelves out of these cute wire baskets I found at Target. I’ll post the Step by step “How-to” later this week.    



6. Find a nice tray or platter to place all of your toiletries.

Presentation is everything!  


7. Upgrade your sink accessories.

My “Hello Kitty” soap dispenser had to go. ( no offense to anyone with “Hello Kitty” hand soap)  


8. Give your feet a soft place to land, as you exit the shower, with a fluffy bath rug. 



9. Upgrade your shower head and sink faucet.

10. Add some low maintenance greenery.

Think succulents or a “life-like” plant. (shhh.. no one will ever know they’re not real)
