8 Easy Bathroom Upgrades

The most intimate space in your home, the bathroom should feel like a sanctuary. But if yours is more cluttered and chaotic than serene and spa-like, don’t worry—you don’t have to spend a fortune on a renovation to transform it into a relaxing retreat. Just a few simple updates and additions will do the trick. Check out our ideas below.

Go back to the basics

Go through all your cosmetics and toiletries, and toss anything that’s expired or that you haven’t used in the last six months. Once you’ve edited down to the essentials, replace your old storage boxes with clean new organizers, like these

Hang art

While you don’t want to hang any expensive pieces in the bathroom (the humidity and moisture can cause damage over time), adding a favorite framed print or two can bring some much-needed personality to your bathroom.

Treat yourself

Invest in some bath salts, scented candles and a good bathtub tray, and you’ll not only create a tranquil mood, you’ll also be ready to pamper yourself with a relaxing bath at a moment’s notice. Have a low-key playlist queued up for when the mood strikes.

Throw in the towel

Swap out your tired old bath linens for a fresh set—after all, there’s nothing like a big fluffy towel to wrap yourself in post-shower or bath to make you feel like you’re in a spa. And grab yourself a cozy, hooded Hammam robe while you’re at it.

Accessorize

For items that you keep out in the open, like soap and toothbrushes, use a matching accessories set for a unified and streamlined look. We love this lovely marble-patterned set—you can even get a coordinating toilet brush holder.

Fresh flowers

Flowers aren’t just for the living and dining rooms—a spray of buds in the bathroom brings a splash of much-needed life and color. And if you don’t have any counter space to spare, try these wall-mounted vases.

Get a gorgeous new shower curtain

The shower curtain is usually the largest and most eye-catching piece in your bathroom, so replacing your old, dingy one can make a world of difference. You can go for a print, or go for a more understated one. 

Now light some candles, grab a good book, and pour yourself a glass of Chardonnay. Your new and improved bathroom is ready and waiting!
