Ways to Update Your Bathroom

Sprucing up the bathroom adds value to this often overlooked space. Bathroom upgrades tend to be cheap, easy, and fast. It’s time to give your bathroom an updated, modern look. Here are seven ways how:


1. Find DIY inspiration.

A good way to update your bath space is to introduce personalised details. Find inspiration online and in magazines. If you're creative enough, this is the perfect opportunity to flex your DIY muscles.


2. Consider the lighting.

Lighting is one of the best ways to give your bathroom a new vibe. Opt for a lighting fixture that creates a relaxing and spa–like atmosphere. It is important to remember that you don’t need too much lighting inside, but you need to layer it to reduce glare and provide enough light while doing your makeup or shaving. In giving your bathroom a proper lighting fixture, consider recessed lighting for illumination. You can also add a lighting fixture above the mirror or on both sides. You also need to light up the shower area and a strip of lighting for the cabinets.

Pro tip: You might want to use LEDs. Not only that LEDs are energy-saving and convenient but they also can give you a more modern look because of its minimal appearance.


3. Update the faucet.

In dealing with your bathroom faucet, the "one size fits all" principle should not be applied. Faucets come in different styles, functions, and finishes. It is ideal to consider your lifestyle and budget when changing your faucets. But if you are on a tight budget, check if your faucet is still working and just needs a bit of TLC.
