There’s nothing like flipping through the latest editions of House & Home, Better Homes and Gardens, Elle Decor, Style at Home, or House Beautiful to have you craving a new house or major renovations. Both are costly options!
Instead, try to redecorate and fall in love with your current home all over again. It’s amazing even simple redecorating changes can dampen your desire to move or renovate.
Redecorating your bathroom this spring doesn’t have to be expensive. A few well-chosen accessories, new towels and bath mat and a coordinating shower curtain will give you a whole new look without breaking the bank.
This bathroom was painted in neutral colors, the most versatile backdrop when you want to redecorate because it allows for a bunch of different looks.
I always like to start with the shower curtain, and take my cues for other items like the towels and bath mat, from there. Make sure you choose a color scheme you really love and bring in some fresh flowers or a plant.
The harder part for some people, but one that has a dramatic effect on your mood every day, is ditching the clutter. Start by getting rid of old toothbrushes, shampoos, prescriptions, cosmetics and other items you’re not using anymore. Then look at whether you can store remaining items in covered baskets.
