Does Your Bathroom Have Personality?

23 Feb

Part 3 of “Does It Go Great Together” series.    Whether it’s the powder room or your bathroom, it always amazes me – how this is the one area that is sometimes forgotten.   It matters! Many people think, that it’s the least of their worries; in and out!

You ever visited someone’s home and it is really put together.   Then you ask where is the powder room or bathroom and there is always an explanation on the way; about the decor “We’ve really haven’t gotten around to renovating it”. 🙂

Remembering reading in a 2008 Domino Magazine article, it brought attention to just that! How these rooms need personality and it really doesn’t take too much effort to do so!

It doesn’t mean gutting out walls and floors.   A little work, not too much to include the bathroom or powder room; bringing cohesiveness with the rest of the home.  Here are some changes you can do?

  • Wallpaper  adds depth and character.
  • A Mirror is key,  replace with an oversize mirror, forgo the traditional medicine cabinet mirror.
  • Do a sink update with an affordable pedestal,with a clean lined basin.
  • If you have a window, you have light! To add more, try some sconces on the side of the mirror.
  • For the toilet seat, there are wood seats and a variety of colors too.
  • Flooring – can be expensive, so nice bath rugs can do the trick.
  • Some nice towels, bath accessories, soaps and candles.
  • Declutterize!

Lowes® and Home Depot® have some affordable selections and don’t be afraid to use wallpaper, they have some great patterns!

It’s all about change and even if you can’t do some of the things I’ve listed at this time.  A cosmetic change like  new bathroom towels or bath rugs can also do the trick too!
