Simple Bathroom Updates


The bathroom is an often desired home renovation project. However, between work, family and other household tasks, finding the time or the budget for home improvement projects can be a challenge. Luckily, you can dramatically improve the look and functionality of your bathroom without spending too much time or money, and most “do-it-yourselfers” can take on these projects on their own. Here are a few easy updates for your bathroom.


Extra Elbow Room in the Shower

Have you ever wondered why a hotel shower seems so spacious? It likely has a curved shower rod, and you can bring that luxury into your own bath. There are several versions that give you extra elbow room without using too much elbow grease. Try a tension curved rod for extra easy installation. You will be amazed at the difference changing out the shower rod will make to the space.


Sensational Showerheads

Now that you have more room to relax in the shower, is your current showerhead offering an enjoyable experience? If not, don’t settle for a subpar spray. Upgrading your showerhead is simple. Just unscrew your current showerhead; wrap some plumber’s tape around the arm; and screw on the new showerhead. A rain shower showerhead is an excellent choice to provide quality coverage, and there are many options at affordable prices.


Storage in Style

The bathroom is host to many activities, which means it also needs adequate storage space. Adding simple storage solutions, such as hooks, towel bars, towel rings and shelves can add some style to your bath and increase functionality. Boxes on shelves or baskets on the floor add storage and give you an opportunity to show your personal style.


Updates in these three areas can upgrade the entire room. You can also add your own personal style and an extra layer of comfort with simple touches like new plush cotton towels and memory foam bath mats. Try mixing up your décor as well with some new artwork on the walls or maybe a new indoor plant to bring life into the space. New lotions and soaps can also bring a refreshing feeling to you and your bathroom. With a few simple changes, you can have a new bathroom in no time.
