Bathrooms are often one of the best rooms in the house. They became an oasis for many over lockdown, providing peace and quiet where you could seldom get it anywhere else; and while life has generally gone back to what it was before, bathrooms are still that special self-care space that is celebrated by many of us.
If your bathroom looks tired and outdated, then you might want to consider giving this space some care. This piece is going to take a look at how you can modernize your bathroom to give it the renovation it deserves.
Rip Out the Old and Bring in the New
Bathrooms do not need to be decorated too regularly to keep a modern feel, as long as the furnishings and integral plumbing areas are up to date. For example, if you have a white bath, it will look chic with almost anything. However, if you have a broken bath panel or cracks in your sink basin, the whole room is going to look worn down.
Another point to consider is to also replace your shower system if you find it to be outdated. There are lots of new systems and styles that can both look better and allow you to make better use of your water so you get the most for your money.

A lick of paint is one of the cheapest and fastest ways to overhaul any room in the house, and your bathroom is no exception. Be careful to choose the right paint, as you will want it to be water resistant and have the ability to tolerate high levels of humidity. Not doing so can see all of your hard work start to peel off in front of your eyes. It is also a good idea to get a glossy paint for the parts of the bathroom that could stain (such as the tiles around the bath or sink), as this will make sure they are not difficult to clean.
Using accessories to transform any room is a quick, easy, and an impermanent option for those who like to keep up with modern trends and styles without breaking the bank (or their back). Accessories also look brilliant in bathrooms, and can transform a drab-looking space into one that you look forward to relaxing in.
Some ideas for bathroom accessories include:
- Mirrors: Mirrors often make a room look stylish, but they also offer the benefit of more light. Make your bathroom appear brighter and more spacious by placing mirrors opposite the window.
- Storage: Many of us have seen a bathroom that has been covered in half-used shampoo bottles, soaps, and toiletries, which end up becoming the sole focus of the room. Investing in smart and stylish storage can modernize your bathroom, while also keeping everything tidy.
- Candles: When you have a clear space in your bathroom, you have room for the classic scented candle, along with flowers and any other decorative pieces that can tie the whole room together.
