8 Quick, Easy, & Stylish Updates to Your Bathroom


1) Paint the Walls – Many people often forget to paint the walls of their bathroom. If you are not a fan of a lot of color, opt for a neutral tan or beige. You may also feel free to paint an accent wall for a quick boost of color. Your bathroom should be a calming and relaxing environment. For assistance in selecting a paint color, visit your local Sherwin WIlliams store or contact your favorite Certified Interior Decorator for a color consultation.


2) Frame Your Mirrors – Aren’t you tired of looking at that plain bare mirror in your bathroom? You don’t have to settle for that. Mirror Mate Frames are a very affordable option for upgrading your mirror. Mirror Mate will instantly transform the plain mirror into a beautifully framed focal point. If you are in the Dallas/Ft Worth Metroplex, make an appointment for a free Mirror Mate Consultation with Divine Elements of Design. If you are outside of the Dallas/Ft Worth Metroplex, visit www.mirrormate.com to locate an authorized installer near you.


3) Hang a Small TV on the Wall – Having a TV in the bathroom is not only for homes that were once on MTV Cribs.. A small smart TV or a TV with a Roku player can turn your bathroom into a modern retreat. With your homes wifi network (no cable or satellite needed), you can listen to your favorite station on Pandora while getting dressed, watch your favorite movie on Netflix while taking a relaxing bath, or watch a makeup tutorial on YouTube while applying your makeup for a special occasion. Watch my video on how I turned a regular TV into a smart TV.

5) Update Your Towels and Rugs – Take a visit to your Bed Bath & Beyond (or local department) store to update the towels and rugs in your bathroom. You may be surprised how these new items will provide a fresh new look in the bathroom. (Don’t forget your Bed, Bath & Beyond coupons… FYI… They may be redeemed even after the expiration date.)


6) Change your Faucets & Lights – Your general contractor (or ours) can easily update your bathroom’s faucets and light fixtures. Experiment with different colors and textures. Be creative and have fun.


7) Disassemble the Body Gift Baskets – If you are like 75% of the population, you have tons of body soaps and lotion gift baskets. People often leave the items in the plastic wrapped basket and place it somewhere in the bathroom. Many times, the items are not only not used, they are still sitting in the basket unused. Take those items out of the basket and use or donate them. The basket may be recycled for another purpose, in another room if necessary.

8) Replace the Switch Plates – Toss those white plastic generic switch plates away. You can purchase switch plates in various textures or colors from your local hardware store, big box store, or even Amazon. You can change the switch plates yourself using a flat screw driver.
