Cleaning out the bathroom, deciding on a color scheme and prepping the room are the most difficult parts of the project. With those chores completed…you can, finally, dig into the fun part of the bathroom facelift.
Tie up your hair and click on some fast paced bathroom painting music. Now you can paint some color onto that blank "canvas" of bathroom walls. At the end of the day, you'll be able to step back and admire the amazing transformation from just the change of color. Clean up for the night, and give the walls 24 hours to dry past the tacky (sticky) stage.
First, hang your focal point picture on the wall you've selected. It's your reference point for color decisions on other items for the new bathroom.
Two important clichés to keep in mind for the final touches in the room are "Less is more" and "KISS" (Keep It Simple Stupid). Don't overcrowd the room with stuff. Add only a select few, well-chosen items that are color coordinated to complete the room.
Depending on your bathroom, these might include:
The bathroom looks awesome, but needs one last thing… something to bring your focal point picture down into the room. Are there flowers in the picture? If so, fill a lovely pitcher or vase with a bouquet of color-coordinated silk flowers.
Is the picture a beach scene? Then, how about a basket of large seashells? Are you going with a golf theme? A martini glass of multi-color tees with one golf ball tossed in might do the trick. The one final touch you place on the countertop should be simple, yet it will perfectly complete the room.
Use your imagination to redecorate -- it's amazing what you will find.
Your bathroom facelift is complete and you absolutely love the new look! It's clean and striking, just like photos of bathrooms in design magazines. The best part is, the cost was far less than the complete bathroom remodel you originally wanted.
The challenge now is to not reintroduce clutter into to the room. Putting back old knick-knacks, lotion bottles and hairstyling tools will crowd out the classy design you've worked so hard to create. So, remember to KISS in your new bathroom, and enjoy the easy and inexpensive new design you've created.
