It can be easy to neglect one of the most important rooms in your house — the bathroom. Whether it’s your Terravita Scottsdale home or one in another neighborhood, putting a little TLC into your bathroom will do wonders in perking it up.

 

PUT SOME LIGHT IN YOUR BATHROOM

Get rid of the fluorescent overhead lights in your Terravita Scottsdale home and make a statement instead. Find an unique light fixture and something that’s artistic so it’ll stand out. 

 

ADD MIRRORS

Mirrors are a given in any bathroom, but what about taking the concept another step forward in your Terravita Scottsdale home. With very little money, you can invest in a flash mirror. By using 1-by-4 planks of wood or molding, you can frame out the mirror and then paint the frame. You can then decorate around the mirror with towels, toothbrush holder, and so on. 

 

USE PAINT THAT POPS

Since bathrooms are usually small, you can go all out with paint color at your Terravita home. Be bold. Be creative with the color. The color trending, right now, is gold. But unlike the 1980’s, today’s gold that’s in style is not brassy but rather warm, a bit dull. 

 

ADD WALLPAPER

Instead of paint that pops, select wallpaper that can also spruce up your walls in your Terravita Scottsdale home bathroom. If it has the ‘wow’ factor, you might not need to hang pictures. If you’re planning on selling your home soon, you might want to consider removable wallpaper. 

 

REPLACE YOUR SINK

Most standard vanities are pretty average with little appeal, even in upscale Terravita homes. So consider replacing the console, commode, and/or sink with an antique style. Vintage works well even in a half-bath. 

 

GET NEW TOWELS

Getting rid of all-white towels and replacing them with linens a little more colorful is the next step in sprucing up your bathroom. You should replace your towels every couple of years, anyway, since fabric loses absorbency due to fibers breaking down. The key, though, is not in trying to match all accessories in a bathroom but rather in choosing pieces from different merchandisers for a designer look. 

 

ADD STORAGE

If you’re tight on storage at your Terravita home, think about adding a shelf above the sink or smaller shelves above the back of your toilet. 

Sprucing up a dull bathroom is rather simple and costs very little.
