You can transform the look of your bathroom using only accessories. Without the need for a total bathroom remodel or redesign. By adding some effective and transformative bathroom accessories. You can quickly and easily take your bathroom from basic to stunning.
There are a few important factors you want to consider. When it comes to deciding how you want to accessorize your bathroom. Or any space in your home.
Choose a theme
If you already have a theme in your bathroom, you need to decide whether you’ll be keeping it the same. Or changing it to something different. Having a theme will help you create a more cohesive look and feel to your bathroom space. There are many themes to choose from and it all comes down to preference.
Before you buy more accessories for your bathroom, take stock of what you already have. There are most likely things you already have that will complement your new theme. Not everything will need to be changed. Think about the major aspects of your bathroom that you want to focus on. And stick with those.
Pick a spot
Pick the specific parts of your bathroom you want to focus your efforts on. You can focus on the ceiling, floor, bath, shower, walls, sink, toilet, etc. Work your way through them one at a time or in small groups. There are so many parts to a bathroom that you can add some sort of accessory to that will make it look better. Deciding on the areas you want to transform before you begin the process is very important.
Consider your space
This seems very obvious. But you’ll be surprised how often we skip this step. We get carried away and rush to make a purchase without determining if it will fit the available space we have. The best way to go about space consideration is to actually measure the space. That way you can have a bit more accuracy and control when picking out the elements of your bathroom design. There will be no unexpected and unpleasant surprises to deal with down the line.
Unless you’re an interior designer or decorator by trade then there’s really no point in trying to reinvent the wheel. There are a lot of available bathroom designs on the internet that you can use to inspire you on how to go about accessorizing your bathroom. Look for design inspiration that will give you an idea of how you want the final look of your bathroom to be. Research this thoroughly and find the accessories you like. Make sure they’re available before committing to the look.
Narrow it down
Decide on the specific accessories you want before you start the process of acquiring them. Items that will complement the ones you already have and will fit your available space. Also determine the purpose each accessory will serve to fulfil. If it’s for decorative purposes only or an essential accessory that serves a purpose.
Buy or Make
Decide how you will go about acquiring the items. You may be able to upcycle some items you already have, or DIY accessories from scratch. There are many advantages to creating your own accessories for your bathroom. Some of which include having a unique accessory and being able to add your own personal touch to it. You can make it suit your needs down to specific details.
Set a budget
Rank them in order of importance if you’re working within a budget and buy them accordingly. Leave room for adjustments. If you’re going to be up cycling or doing DIY remember to factor in the costs of materials. This is something that can be commonly overlooked. You can easily get carried away like a kid in a candy store when shopping for home accessories. With all the cute and attractive bathroom accessories on offer.
Pick a supplier
The process of selecting the right bathroom accessory can be a bit daunting. Mainly due to the growing number of available suppliers to choose from. It’s always safer to go with products that you are already familiar with. Or something with a good customer review. Take your time to source each product on your list. And work within your budget. Online shopping is more distraction free which works better if you have a budget to stick with.
Remember you’re creating a unique space for you and nobody else. Prioritize your needs and what works best for you.
