Bathroom Decor - Chantilly VirginiaThese design hacks are just what you need if you recently took a fresh look at your bathroom and realized it’s a dingy space. To transform it into a delightful and refreshing nook, you don’t necessarily have to gut it and start over.

Before you begin making the small but powerful changes that will effect this transformation, consider if any significant remodels should indeed take place. For instance, you may want to upgrade one key element, such as replacing the shower curtain with glass doors. Or there may be a renovation demanded by safety or sanitation – ordering replacement glass for a cracked window, removing mildew infested trim, etc.

Assuming that any major changes have been made, what can you do to erase a room’s dingy aura and make it a pleasant retreat? Like it or not, step 1 is to deep clean the bathroom. Empty the room, including any cupboards or medicine cabinets, and wash and sanitize all the surfaces. Use mold-killer if needed and don’t forget neglected nooks and crannies like the floor space behind the toilet.

Next up is odor remediation. The deep cleaning might have taken care of this, but if not, it’s time to do some detective work. If you can locate the source of the unpleasant whiffs, act accordingly to remove it. If not, try one or more of these general tips for bringing fresh scents to a bathroom.

   •    Use standard methods such as a plug-in air freshener and a toilet bowl freshener.
   •    Introduce lovely natural aromas by means of potpourri, an essential oil diffuser, or vases of fragrant flowers and herbs.
   •    Deodorize bathroom surfaces naturally with baking soda, vinegar, or lemon juice.

A bathroom that looks and smells fresh and clean is the perfect canvas on which to work your décor magic. The first step to consider is repainting. An wall color update goes a long way when it comes to cheering up a space.

In doing this, be sure to used paint suited to bathroom applications and also be intentional about your color choice. Decide whether you want to emphasize peace and relaxation or happiness and energy. Research how various colors impact our moods and then select a hue accordingly.

Decluttering is the next step in changing the feel of your bathroom. Add attractive storage solutions to your restroom to eliminate the clutter that makes the space busy and untidy. Possibilities range from upcycling an old dresser and using it for bathroom linen storage to creating modern open shelving with glass shelves.

Finally, complete your bathroom’s transformation with a trip to a department or home store. Changing out the towels, soap dispenser, trash can, etc. is relatively inexpensive, but it allows to you create a new look and further the savvy color scheme begun by the new wall paint. You might even purchase a wall hanging such as a print or framed mirror to add pizzazz to bare wall space.
