Bathrooms are sometimes underlooked: we don’t usually spend too much in them because their purpose is merely functional. But sometimes you don’t need a big amount of money to make it more fancy, functional and organized. In this home improvement article you’ll learn 6 really useful tips to make the most out of your bathroom and update it for a reasonable amount of money.
1. Stack bins and baskets
Bathrooms are usually small places without too much storage space, so it’s important to make the most out of every inch to keep it tidy. A great way to accomplish this is by stacking bins and/or baskets or adding shelves in order to make the most out of the available vertical space.
2. Buy used bathtubs
Many people get rid of bathtubs because they’re too busy and don’t have time to use them, or because it takes too much space and prefer to have a shower. This is a great opportunity for those who do want a bathtub, not only because used bathtubs are cheaper but because they can give a clean, vintage look if the chosen one that fits the room.
3. Get bigger mirrors
This might sound a bit weird, but think about it: if you extend your mirror, your bathroom will look big, elegant and more importantly, can lead to less water and light consumption since two people can use it at the same time.
4. Use shower panels
Panels that move horizontally are cheaper, easier to maintain and take less space than glass doors, which is great for smaller rooms. Curtains are also a good option for smaller budgets.
5. Get rid of straight shower rods
If you plan to have curtains, spend twenty more pounds on curved rods instead of the usual straight ones. These attach to the wall using screws, opposite to the straight roads attached with tension, so they last longer and will save you some long-term money (as well as accidental head bumps).
6. Put hooks on the door
Bye towel rods, hello hooks. Hooks allow the towels to dry faster and makes it easier to hang them up. But why on the door? Having them hanging on the door maximizes the available space and hides them, so your bathroom will look cleaner.
