Paint It A Calming Color
Your bathroom should chiefly be a room that you can relax in. When you’re taking a shower or bath, you’re also taking some time out from the rest of the world. If you’re a parent, chances are your shower is one of the only times you get to be alone in the whole day. Paint the bathroom walls a calming color – if you like bright clean colors, go for off white or pale grey. If not, try eggshell blue or mauve to create a really relaxing atmosphere. Colors like dark purple might feel warm but they’ll also make the room seem a lot smaller.
Invest In A High Pressure Shower
This time of year especially, there’s nothing worse than a weak trickle of a so-called shower. It’s hard enough getting up in the mornings without having a terrible shower to contend with as well! Replace your shower head, and if that doesn’t work, try talking to some local plumbing services to get some advice about how to improve your shower.
Go For A Heated Towel Rack
If you want to inject a little bit of luxury into your everyday life, then you should absolutely go for a heated towel rack. It may cost a little more than a normal rack, but you’ll be grateful for it every time you wrap your incredibly cozy towel around your body after a shower. It’ll also help your towel to dry quickly after you’ve had a shower, meaning that you won’t get that horrible smell of damp.
Improve Your Storage
One of the biggest problems that we all have in our houses is a distinct lack of storage – and a lot of the time, the bathroom is no different. Depending on the layout of your house, you might be using your bathroom to store things like spare sheets and towels as well as using it as an actual room to wash in. Get more cupboard space, and invest in boxes that you can throw your kids’ bath toys into.
Improve The Lighting
One of the best ways to update your bathroom is to improve the lighting. If you do your makeup in the bathroom then it’s important to have as bright a light as possible – and if you can, a light that mimics sunlight so your face doesn’t end up looking strangely colored when you go outside! In terms of overhead lighting, try getting some shades that mean your bathroom isn’t too bright – you don’t necessarily want to see the reflection of your body in too much brightly lit glory in the mirror when you get out of the shower! A more golden light will feel more warm and relaxing.
Add Some Fragrance
The bathroom can veer wildly between being the best smelling and worst smelling room in your house. Try getting a reed diffuser in a scent like lavender or vanilla to add to the relaxing ambiance of your bathroom. You could also go for a scented candle, or some really fragrant hand wash and hand cream.
