Sometimes you just have to live with a bad bathroom. Renters tend to suffer from this the most, but there are also homeowners for whom a bathroom remodel is completely out of the question. So you have to learn to live with your bad bathroom.
You don’t have to tear out the tub or change the lighting or break your lease to upgrade. At least a little. We’ve got tips, via The Fresh Toast, to make your bath better, and (a little) more like a spa!
Turning your average bathroom into a relaxing place where you want to spend time takes a little bit of work, but it’s easier and cheaper than what you might expect.
Start with the shower.
Changing your shower head is quick, inexpensive, and easy. If you can screw in a lightbulb, you’ve got this.
A good shower head can change your life, and if you’ve never changed yours then you’ll surely appreciate this tip.
Seek scented salts and soaps.
What’s more luxurious than a long, scented soak? Fragrant bath products make your room feel like a private spa.
Clean up the clutter.
When’s the last time you saw a spa with shampoo bottles or extra rolls of toilet paper on the counter? Contain and conceal the mess of everyday life.
Mason jars are a classic and cheap option for Q-tips, cotton balls, and other loose items. Be sure to get rid of the toiletries and empty bottles of product that are cluttering your bathroom in the meantime.
Change the atmosphere.
Candles and oil diffusers are both really effective ways to change the feel of any room.
A candle is a really important item for your bathroom, making it smell good and providing coziness and warmth. Oil diffusers are also great and less flammable, making you feel like you own and manage a really great spa.
