Create Your Mood Board

Before you can start creating the bathroom of your dreams, you’ll need some inspiration. We suggest that you create your very own mood board with clippings and images of aesthetics you like. You can find inspiration on social media, like Pinterest or Instagram, and even in interior design magazines, such as Elle or Architectural Digest.

Stick to a Budget

When you start redesigning your home, it’s easy to get carried away, especially on the financial side of things. It’s best to create a budget and, most importantly, stick to it. Ask yourself some key questions about the things you would like to change and factor these into your costs.

Fix the Essentials Yourself

If you fancy yourself a bit of a handyman, why not take on some of the lighter plumbing work to cut down on costs? Sure, you shouldn’t try to reinstall a brand new toilet if you’ve never had any pumping experience, but installing a shower head won’t be too hard of a task to tackle. Plus, there are hundreds of video tutorials on YouTube that can guide you along the way.

Add Stick on Tiles

If you want to give your bathroom a new look, without hiring contractors or spending thousands of dollars, you can opt for stick on tiles. Furthermore, when it comes to bathroom cleaning, these tiles are incredibly easy to wipe down. If you get bored of the look, you can easily remove and change them for a different pattern or color, without making a dent in your wallet.

Install New Hardware

One of the easiest ways to give your bathroom a new lease of life is by changing those outdated hardware pieces. Trends come and go, so it’s important to keep on top of these aesthetic changes. A hardware trend that we’re loving right now is the sleek and modern look. However, just make sure that it fits with the rest of the bathroom changes you’re planning. You can pick up a few different styles and simply return the ones that you’re not satisfied with.  

At the end of the day, it’s important that you keep the bathroom cohesive with the rest of the house. So, if you’re redoing your entire home with a minimalist theme in mind, try to mirror that same aesthetic in the bathroom too. Remember to create a mood board and stick to your budget. Most importantly, don’t forget to enjoy the creative process!
