Inspiration for Bathroom Refresh

When I started out with the bathroom I never imagine what it would look like in the end. It is certainly a metamorphosis. Wow that’s a pretty big word. Anyways, come join me and I will show you all the things involved in making a bathroom refresh simple and beautiful.

The Inspiration

Today I am bringing some ideas and inspiration to encourage us to update and refresh our bathrooms.

That being said, I will start with the color of the room. The power of paint can easily transform a room. Just that one thing that will breath new life into a room we consider to be utilitarian when in fact it should have equal “room creds”.

Color Changes Everything

Picking the right paint (not just the color) will make the job easier and hassle-free.

Good paint jobs starts with a great primer. So if you are on a budget and you want to get more “bang for your buck” choose a paint and primer combo. In the Bathroom I have used KILZ Paint and Primer and have always been satisfied with the results over time.

Bathroom Color Paint Trends 2022

Below see the trends in bathroom colors today:

Bathroom Paint Colors

My Thoughts on the Color Palette...

Anchors Aweigh SW 9179 (I am partial to this color, from my Navy Days). LOL.   Rhinestone SW7656 (What girl doesn’t like these…)

Bathroom Refresh

Alabaster SW 7008 (this is a color that has endless design attributes).

White Bathroom

Let’s Accessorize

Pops of color (curtains, rugs, towels, the color is permanent and the possibilities for change are staggering)

Poised Taupe SW 6039 (if your room is large enough and well light this is a bold statement color). It is akin to Alabaster insofar as pops of colors. Shower Curtains will surely be the statement accessory.

Introducing Texture …..

First up is Shower Curtain vs. Glass Doors. On the Budget side, there are beautiful shower curtains out there today. Some are works of Art and some are so elegant you’re just have to have it. Glass doors are beautiful but come with a steep price tag.  I will share ways that will make you forget about those glass door…

There’s such a wide variety to choose from. You’ve got a variety of patterns and styles:

Here I have chosen four types of shower curtains, as examples:

Country (Lush Decor Button Shower Curtain, 72″ X 72″, Linen)

French (Gray Shower Curtain-Fabric Damask w/tassels)

Art (Floral Water Color Hydrangeas 

Country (Country Chic Floral Shower Curtain, Pink Rose)

Note: If you would like to retain your fabric shower curtains mold free, it’s best to routinely launder them to stop any mold growing along the lower edges of the curtain. Placing a nylon shower curtain behind is another idea.

Soft and Luxurious Towels

In the texture family, we have Towels (Display and Daily Use)

Here are some of my favorite towels:

6-Piece Yarn Dyed Cobblestone Jacquard Towel Set

Luxury Hotel & Spa 100% Cotton Premium Turkish Bath

8 Piece Towel Set 100% Premium Turkish

All of the pretty stuff gets lost!

All of the pretty stuff……… lost in the clutter.

The last thing I will talk about is, if you’re following the above suggestions the best idea for any bathroom is keeping it clutter free.

Clutter Free

The easiest way to start is the tops of the counters using the  “less is best” concept.

The day-to-day necessities can be put away in drawers, baskets or containers. One place that comes to mind, is Dollar Tree, they have plenty of containers for storing stuff at affordable prices. No Excuses. Whether were budget minded or not who does not like dollar tree? LOL

 

If the room allows, I will leave you with this final decorating tip (my favorite). Florals or Greenery, they add new life to a somewhat dated or tired bathroom.  This one is definitely a beauty…
