1. Update your shower head: Apartment bathrooms are equipped with standard shower heads, which work well and serve their purpose. But, changing the shower head allows you to achieve the morning wake-up you desire. If you happen to change apartments, don’t forget to take your shower head with you!
2. Update your shower curtain: Shower curtains that are past their prime can give a dreary look and overall feel to your bathroom. Spice it up with a new curtain! Adding a shower curtain with a pattern adds texture and creates a visual interest in your space. If you’re feeling adventurous, you can coordinate your curtains with each season. Or, if you’re likely to keep the same curtain throughout the year, coordinate a new bathmat and towels to continue bringing life to your bathroom.
3. Add storage: You have likely been in someone’s home that had an étagère (a stand that is typically seen over the toilet or standing next to it). While those are useful, they don’t add a lot in the way of “personal touch.” If you want to feel like you’re in the country or at the beach, wooden crates from craft stores will do the trick! You can leave them natural or stain them so they work with your overall idea. If that isn’t your style, adding small shelves to the walls creates visual appeal while being functional. Additionally, shower caddies work wonders and keep your shower free of clutter from shampoo and body wash bottles.
4. Make sure your idea is cohesive: Small spaces, like bathrooms, allow for you to get away with a bold idea. The caveat of this though, it only works with one bold idea. Too many bold colors, patterns, or textures can make your bathroom feel cluttered and disjointed. Come up with one idea and stick to it!
