7 Practical-But-Pretty Ways To Update Your Bathroom This Weekend

Who else has cabin fever? Yeah, us too. That’s why we’ve turned our attention to the weekend, and thought about how we can change up a room that is so often neglected – the bathroom.

Re-painting or re-tiling isn’t always an option (especially if you rent), so here you go, 6 practical, easy, cost-effective ways to breathe some life into your bathroom this weekend.

1. Life-Giving Greenery

We’re always banging on about plant power (both real and fake), and with good reason. There are so many varieties that will live maintenance-free on the windowsill or shelf in a bathroom,  including Aloe Vera (bonus points: the gel from its leaves acts as a great home remedy for cuts and burns, insect bites and dry skin), bamboo, begonias and even orchids.

2. Go For Gold

We spotted these gold soap and moisturiser dispensers for €18 at Argos, no less, and they’re the perfect accessory to brighten up any sink. Treat yourself to a new scented liquid soap in a spring-friendly scent for a small way to enhance your senses every day.

3. Pack A Punch With These Wicker Baskets

There’s nothing worse than a messy bathroom, with piles of unused products and towels stacking up and making a space feel cluttered. This set of three baskets is a perfect addition to any bathroom. Use it to pack away laundry, hand towels and other essentials away from the world.  Arrow weave wicker baskets (set of 3), €34.99 at Littlewoods.

4. Find A Rug That’s Right

It is surprisingly difficult to find a glam bath matt, which is a pain because you need a couple of cool mats on rotation (they get a lot of traffic, which means they get gross, fast). We really love this patterned matt, €10 at TK Maxx, who always have a great selection of bath mats, whatever style or colour you’re feeling. It’s a small change in your bathroom that’ll give it a major style boost this spring.

5. New Towels Can Be A Gamechanger

This set of Navajo towels is gorgeous and guaranteed to brighten up your bathroom. Who says function can’t be fab? €39.99  (for a set of 4) at Argos.

6. Hip To Be Square

We spotted this lifestyle shot from John Lewis and got inspired. Try a square mirror like this TK Maxx cutie, €26, to draw your eye around the room in a new way.

7. Colour Block It Out 

We’re taking a fashion favourite – colour blocking – and incorporating it into our bathrooms this spring. It’s not always possible to re-paint a space, so drawing a new shower curtain is a great way to introduce colour and shape in a non-permanent way. Try the selection at H&M from €19.99.
