You are not alone. Many of those who rent apartments usually have to deal with toilet and baths with an outdated look. If you would like to change up the look of your T&B without doing heavy construction renovation, here are three ways to do it.
Clean and Re-grout Floors and Walls
Never underestimate the transformative power of clean and sparkly tiles. Get in touch with a tile and grout cleaning services company to schedule a consultation and determine the amount of cleaning and work that the bathroom needs, to give it a fresher look and feel. In some instances, tiles are clean and in good condition, but it’s the grouting that needs work. So better get advice from the pros to ensure a full and thorough cleaning of the tiles and grout.
Another remodeling trick that’s easy to do is repainting. Check for paint types the deter mold growth and are ideal for use in humid environments. As the steam from the shower leaves moisture which has the tendency to increase the chances for mold and mildew growth, using paint that is suitable for indoor use and one that is ideal for rooms that are usually exposed to humidity and moisture will go a long way and will keep your bathroom looking fresh and well-maintained for a long time.
Not happy with the existing tile design but can’t take them out? Opt for sticker tiles. These tiles mimic the look and feel or real tiles and come in sheets which makes installation easy peasy. It stays on quite well but is also easy to undo it come the time you’re moving out.
Perhaps the most subtle but impactful way to update a bathroom is by switching up the hardware. Showerheads, faucets, knobs — these are all easy to replace and can be done quickly, too. Changing the shower curtain rod and using new curtains in plain neutral shades can create the illusion of a brighter and bigger space, and can instantly make the room look new.
Add Some Practical Decorative Pieces
Using some practical decorative pieces like a nice towel rack, a toilet paper dispenser, a countertop rack, cosmetic jars, and some scented candles go a long way. Not only are these useful, but they also serve as organizing and storage systems. A small pot of indoor plant that can thrive with minimal light and can handle moisture in the room is a great addition to the functional and practical decorative pieces line up for the room.
Use Movable Storage
If the space under the sink bothers you or you would like to utilize an empty corner in the space, using some movable storage can do the trick and fill the space to make the room look complete and adequately furnished. And as these are non-permanent, it’s easy to re-arrange it or bring it with you when you move out.
Lastly, deal with the hideous lighting equipment. If all there is, is a tiny bulb sticking out of the ceiling like a sore thumb, and doesn’t even do a good job at illuminating the entire space, it needs to be changed. LED lights to come in different designs and styles and are more energy-efficient, too. You can get full brightness for half the wattage of a traditional bulb, and these usually come in cases, so they look nice on the ceiling.
If the drab and tired look of your bathroom is screaming for a makeover, you can do so without knocking anything down. These non-construction renovation tricks are your best options if your contract doesn’t permit you to tear down or perform any sort of construction-related work on the property. So give these things a whirl and get your dream bathroom design in no time.
