5 Ways to Update Your Bathroom

Kitchens and bathrooms are often the most expensive parts of the home to remodel. While full gut jobs can be necessary for dated spaces and non-functional layouts, sometimes all you need in your space is a little refresh by swapping out accessories or changing fixtures. Here are some tips that can be implemented over a weekend - no remodeling needed.

Lush Linens

Treat yourself and your guests to fresh towels. Our picks include plush organic cotton or a more lightweight waffle weave. Stick with white if you're wanting that fresh spa feeling, or pick something that compliments your color scheme.

Candles & Diffusers

Who doesn't love an amazing smelling bathroom? Candles are always an easy option. If you're not into burning things and are worried about forgetting to blow out the flame, reed diffusers are a great alternative. Just place the wood sticks into the diffuser oil, and the scent will fill the space for weeks or even months with no effort!

Aesthetically Pleasing & Functional Storage

If you don't have enough closed storage in your space, make your visible storage attractive. These cute woven baskets are the perfect place to store extra hand towels, toilet paper rolls, and other bath necessities. Small trays can group items together on the countertop and create a clutter-free space.

Swap out Faucets

Faucets may not be the first thing you think about updating in a bathroom, but they can definitely add a nice "wow" factor to any space. Here are some of our favorites from Kohler's Purist line - the streamlined designs can work in almost any space.

Think of lighting as the "jewelry" to a home. It has the power to tie everything together and make a design feel cohesive and complete. If you have space on either side of your vanity mirror, wall sconces can add light around eye level to illuminate your reflection in the mirror. A horizontal bath bar light is another option if you have a large, wide mirror that doesn't leave room for sconces.
