Some people say the shower is where they do their best thinking. Others see the bathroom as a peaceful haven where they can unwind and wash away their tiredness after a hard day’s work.

But above all, the bathroom is a sanctuary in your home to relax in. If you are planning to rejuvenate your bathroom, here are a few simple makeover ideas that will not bust your bank account.


A Splash of Colour

Perk up your bathroom with a pop of colour – Switch out your old towels regularly with new ones for a quick facelift. Pamper yourself with luxurious bath towels, or get them in vibrant colours to enhance your daily bathing experience.


Do not forget to change your hand towels and bath rug from time to time too. Go with multi-coloured options or lively prints for an instant bathroom style upgrade! In addition, these brightly coloured textiles will hide signs of wear and tear better than lighter colours such as white or beige.


Make Some Space

Make your bathroom look more spacious by cutting down the clutter! If you don’t have enough cabinet space, create more storage for your bathroom by installing floating glass shelves or metal racks over your toilet.


Bored with basics? Go the extra mile and choose decorative shelving for your bathroom necessities.

You can hide any mess by using attractive storage bins too. Rattan or seagrass woven baskets are a stylish way to put away toiletries, toilet paper rolls or spare towels.

Bonus tip: Rolling your towels saves more space than storing them folded flat. 🙂

Curate Your Counter

Having too many items on your counter or vanity top can also make your bathroom look smaller and disorganised. Place your everyday grooming essentials in aesthetically pleasing containers, such as pretty glass jars, for an ornamental touch.


Interested in a fun alternative for your kids or even the proud geeks? Go for bathroom accessories designed after their favourite movie series or superhero characters!


Showcase Your Personality

Finally, add extra quirk to your bathroom by showcasing art. Shower curtains are an excellent medium – forsake the plain white shower curtain, and pick a customised one featuring a photograph or artwork you like instead. Or simply hang up or display a favourite art print in your bathroom.

And there you have it! The secret to an easy bathroom makeover for less – it is all in the details.
