1. Upgrade the Showerhead

Because the shower is one of the most used features in your bathroom, it should always feel soothing, luxurious, and comfortable, but it certainly won’t be that way if your current showerhead is weak and spluttering. Luckily, there are numerous types of showerheads that can produce a great flow of water at just the right pressure. When it comes to choosing a new showerhead, you can decide between rain shower heads, handheld or fixed sprayers, massage showers, and high and low-pressure jets. Whatever type you choose, make sure that it provides the perfect amount of pressure you need with a soft, soothing feel on your skin.

2. Maximize Your Storage Space
Storage is underrated in most bathrooms, but when you have enough storage space to put away your bathroom essentials, you can prevent the buildup of clutter and improve the look and feel of your bathroom. For your shampoo, shower gel, conditioner, and other bath essentials, consider integrating a niche in the wall near your showering area rather than placing them on the shower tray. This simple wall recess can make your bathroom look a lot more sleek and modern.

To organize your toothpaste, mouthwash, shaving cream, and other toiletries without taking up floor space, a vanity unit under the sink or a floating cabinet would be ideal. Open ledge storage is great for displaying your perfume, fancy soaps, candles, and any decorative elements that you want to place in your bathroom.

3. Hang a Large, Elegant Mirror
Besides inspecting your face up-close for makeup, shaving, etc., hanging a large, illuminated mirror above the sink is an elegant way to optimize the different light sources available, enhance the bathroom’s aesthetic appeal, and create the illusion of a larger space.

4. Update the Lighting
Lighting sets the mood of any room and your bathroom is no exception. For soft and cozy lighting, avoid fluorescent lights entirely. Illuminated vanity mirror is a great source of task lighting when you need to get ready in the morning, but for proper illumination, overhead lighting is crucial. A chandelier or an elegant pendant light are great options for overhead lighting that can act as a beautiful centerpiece, adding character and style to your bathroom by. And for a serene ambiance and a warm glow during your long, relaxing baths, recessed lighting would be ideal. To set exactly the right ambiance that you need when you need it, consider placing your bathroom lights on a dimmer switch.

5. Replace Your Bath Mat and Shower Curtain
Changing your shower curtain and bath mat is the easiest way to add color and personality to your bathroom. Your shower curtain is possibly the focal point of your bathroom so don’t be afraid to splurge for an elegant one with a nice pattern that complements your bathroom’s color scheme and design. As for the bath mat, whatever color or shape you choose, make sure that it doesn’t slip and opt for a material that feels soft under your feet and makes you feel cozy the moment you step out of the shower.

6. Get a Bath Tray

If you’re looking for a useful bathroom accessory, a bath tray may be certainly worth considering. By giving you a good excuse to fill up your tub and soak for hours with a glass of wine and your favorite music playing in the background, a bath tray can kick-start your self-care routine and motivate you to have some much-needed “me” time.

7. Invest in New Towels
Towels are practical necessities, but that doesn’t mean that they have to be dull or plain looking. One of the best things that you can do for yourself is to get a few towels that are soft, absorbent, and aesthetically pleasing. Having something plush and smooth to wrap yourself with after a shower makes the whole experience ten times better. Plus, the colors, patterns, and embroidery of the towels will make them look like artwork on those towel racks.

You don’t need a major renovation or a lot of money to take your bathroom to the next level. For your bathroom to look great and work properly, less is usually more. Think elegant accessories that also add value and function, versatile lighting options, high-quality fittings and fixtures, and plenty of easily-accessible storage areas. With our suggestions in mind, we hope you can transform your bathroom into your own private sanctuary.
