How to Make Your Bathroom Feel Like Spring

The beginning of a new season is a great time to freshen up your bathroom. The good news is you don’t have to spend tons of money to give your bathroom a face lift. Here are a few things that you can do to make your bathroom feel like spring.

1. Clean it thoroughly.
During the winter months, a bathroom can become smelly and stale. This is especially true if you haven’t had the opportunity to open your windows in a few months.

To get rid of any lingering odors and stains, take a few hours to clean it using non-toxic cleaning supplies. Be sure to clean the base molding, bathtub, tiles, door, light switch plates and door knob.

2. Paint the walls.
There is nothing that freshens up a room like a fresh coat of paint. Not only can a lively paint color change the feel of a room, it can make it smell better.

Thinking of doing a weekend bathroom paint project? Here are some tips to consider.

  • Remove the toilet tank to paint the wall behind it.
  • Select a light paint color.
  • Select a glossy finish.

3. Update the accessories.
Outdated wall plates, knobs and mirrors can cause your bathroom to look and feel dull. Go to your local hardware store and purchase new accessories.

The best part about updating your accessories is it only takes a few hours to complete the project. Another bonus is the update can be completed for less than $100.

4. Replace the toilet.
For various reasons, toilets harbor germs and bacteria. These microorganisms can give your bathroom to have a bad odor.

A toilet that is cracked and discolored is an eyesore. Looking at a broken toilet each day is a constant reminder that your bathroom isn’t up to par.

After you replace your toilet, you will notice a fresher smell in your bathroom. For less than $150, you can purchase an attractive, eco-friendly toilet.

5. Change the flooring.
Are your ceramic tiles cracking? Do you have water damage on your floor? If so, it’s time for you to replace it.

Not only is a cracked floor unsightly, it’s dangerous. If you slip on the floor, you can get cut.

If you aren’t good at removing and replacing tiles, you should hire a professional to complete the job for you. After the job has been completed, you will be glad that you made the investment in a new floor.

As you can see, it’s easy to make your bathroom feel like a fresh spring day. Just follow these tips and reap the benefits of a bathroom that feels amazing.
