5 tips to give your bathroom a makeover

Yes, yes, the toilets are also entitled to their decoration! Give the smallest room in your home personal charm with paint, tiles, a mirror, pictures and accessories. To do this, here are 5 ideas.

After all, the toilet is the perfect place to experiment, when it comes to decoration. Have you always dreamed of painting a wall black or putting floral wallpaper on all your walls? This may be the place to put your plan into action. If you are only moderately satisfied with the result, you will always be able to start over easily since you are in the smallest room in your home. And then the biases in decoration always have a powerful effect, especially on small surfaces.

Nevertheless, in order to be able to offer you a beautiful decoration in your toilet, careful planning is important. Anticipate and therefore take a little time to find out what you would like to have as an atmosphere and how you would imagine the room once revamped.

1 – What to consider beforehand before revamping your toilet

To achieve your goal, it is better to be concrete and have a sense of reality. Start by taking measurements of your room or studying the plan of your house to find out how much space you really have. Note the location of the door, the window if you have one and the water connection. These are the three essential elements to best plan your decoration. Keep in mind the possibility of a switch to turn on a ceiling light or to illuminate above a possible washbasin. Then ask yourself the question of your habits. Do you need a big mirror to do your makeup? If you place a trash can, where will you put it? It is necessary to think about all these questions before embarking on the decoration of your toilets.

If you don’t have any ideas, you can get inspired. Try to remember. Did you particularly like the color palette used in your friends’ toilets? Did you like the furniture or the range of hotel accessories from your last vacation or do you have a candle or a particular room fragrance in mind? Write down all these points to see how you can integrate them into the decoration of your toilet.

2 – Makeover the furniture of his toilets

The more space you have, naturally the larger and more spaced out your furniture can be. If there’s less space, you may have to cut out some furniture, unless of course you like tight spaces. However, you will probably not be able to do without the following equipment since they are part of the basic “panoply” of all toilets:

  • the toilets and their toilet roll holder and their toilet brush
  • a washbasin with taps, a towel rack and a small trash can
  • a mirror
  • a storage option such as a shelf, hook or small cupboard, so that you can discreetly store toilet paper and laundry for drying your hands.

You can easily save space with the hand basin because there are different models, especially for small bathrooms. Some take up very little space and can even be installed as a space-saving corner solution. Another tip if you want to save space: hang your furniture on the wall. Not only do you have more space, visually the toilets seem more spacious and cleaning is easier because nothing obstructs the floor anymore.

3 – Makeover the walls of his toilets

The toilets as already mentioned are the perfect place to experiment. This is especially true for color. Light colors – especially blue, yellow or green – give freshness to your toilet. Dark colors or earth tones and browns, on the other hand, give it a warm feel.

Indulge yourself by using color: tiles, sinks look great in subtle colors, all in shades. You don’t have to go for white. On the other hand, be careful of the chosen color which may seem outdated several years later. Strong colors should be suggested on accessory items that can be changed often and easily: wall paint, wallpaper, towels, etc.

You can still choose a tile or coating that is out of the ordinary or has a particularly high budget since, after all, you are probably in the smallest room in your home. There is therefore much less wall and floor space to equip. Therefore, treat yourself to luxury! Especially in small toilets, high-quality tiles improve the decoration of the room enormously.

4 – Makeover the lighting of your toilets

Also with regard to light, a special luminaire may be suitable. Instead of a single overhead light, however, multiple light sources on a mirror are preferable. Due to the lateral arrangement, they diffuse a more pleasant light and, thanks to the reflections, also make the room appear larger. In addition to the creative effects, such a light is also more practical, especially if the room is to be used by your guests to put on makeup, for example.

5 – Revamp the decorative accessories of your toilets

Try to ensure that your toilet does not become the place of exposure of lots of objects only intended to collect dust. Let’s start with the mirror: it should not only be used for a makeup touch-up, it is also extremely decorative! Regardless of the shape of your toilet, large or small – with a mirror you can quickly give it a new look without having to invest a lot of money.

The same applies to photos in the toilet. Do you have a visual that you have loved for a long time, but for which you never found the right place because it was too visible, too large or too colorful? In the toilets, this photo may find its place. You can use frames of unusual shapes or a little original way to hang them.
