​6 Affordable Ways to Add Elegance to Your Bathroom

Posted by Lily Brooks on

Creating an elegant bathroom doesn’t have to have a high cost or need a complete renovation. You just need a few tips and some DIY pizazz to give your bathroom rustic or elegant touch. It is our great peasure to present 6 ways to achieve it.

1. Introduce Extra Seating

Give yourself a proper throne to sit on while you are getting ready or taking a break from getting ready. You can use a simple wooden stool, use a round ottoman seat or find a nice comfy chair.

To really save money, you can opt to find an ugly duckling of a chair and reupholster it to make it a one of a kind. If you opt for more of smaller stool or ottoman then you can always utilize the hidden away storage space that these options offer.

2. Hang a Light Fixture

Nothing states elegance like hanging a chandelier or a more country style furnishing light fixture . To keep this idea affordable you can find great light fixtures at a restores and flea markets.

Instead of hiring an electrician, you can install the light fixture yourself. Just make sure you are careful and always turn off the power when you are dealing with electrical installation.

3. Add a Rain Shower Head

While adding a rain shower head will up the elegance factor in your bathroom, it will also add a spa-like experience to your daily shower . You can find great deals on rain shower heads via Amazon or check your local home improvement store for various sales or discounts.

Save more by being able to install a rain shower head yourself instead of paying a professional to do this simple installation.

4. Green up the Bathroom

Incorporating plants into your bathroom is a great way to create a more elegant setting. Some plants like aloe vera and bromeliads thrive in a low lit and high moisture environment that a bathroom gives off.

You can place a small plant on the side of your vanity, or add in a small table or plant stand in an empty corner to fill space without adding clutter.

5. Class up Your Mirror

While a  simple mirror adds clean lines to a bathroom, if you are looking for more elegant decor then you need to give your standard mirror an upgrade.

Find a way to add to your mirror without fully replacing it to save money. If you have a simple unframed mirror, then take it down and add a DIY frame. This option allows you to choose a frame color to accent your current bathroom design.

6. Swap out Shower Curtains for Real Ones

Hang real curtains on your shower rod instead of using a standard looking shower curtain. You can attach curtain hooks to the wall so that you can tie the curtains back while you are taking a bath.

Just make sure that you keep a plastic shower liner on the inside to protect your curtains.

Before you begin on adding some of these projects to your bathroom, make a layout diagram to see what you can fit. Overcrowding your bathroom can take away from the elegant design that you are striving for.
