Summer DIY Inspiration: Simple And Stylish Bathroom Makeovers

Summer is finally here! If you’re thinking about doing some DIY or updating your bathroom over summer vacation, here are some ideas. With bathroom makeovers, you don’t have to go crazy with designs or spend a fortune. Often, simple changes can make all the difference.

Bathroom themes
There are so many different angles you can opt for when it comes to planning your new bathroom. Do you want something ultra-modern and stylish? Do you over the quirky styles you see in boutique hotels? Are you a fan of a simple suite and clean, fresh shades? Do you adore the opulence of vintage themes? Does the nautical trend appeal to you?

If you’re thinking about redesigning your bathroom over the summer, look for inspiration online. It’s also a good idea to visit showrooms and flick through some interior magazines. You may also find that wandering around home stores gives you ideas for easy and affordable bathroom renovations.

The theme you go for may dictate the colors and shades you choose. For a modern bathroom, white, gray, beige and metallics are very popular. Blue and white are perfect for seaside and nautical themes. Pastel shades and printed wallpaper are the ideal accompaniment for traditional hardwood floors.



Planning a new layout and design
If you’re going all out with your makeover and you want to change the layout, ask some builders for quotes. You’ll also need to get in touch with a local plumber. You may want to add a bath or create a separate shower unit. Do you want to install a new sink or change your flooring?

Once you have a vision of what you want, it’s much easier to determine the amount of work involved. If you’re making changes that are purely cosmetic, your makeover should be complete within weeks. If you have more drastic changes in mind, it may take significantly longer.

Finishing touches
Once you’ve chosen paint colors and selected your suite, turn your attention to the finishing touches. Toilet roll and toothbrush holders, rugs, and vases can pull the look together. You may also wish to add candles, LED lights, and a statement mirror to take your bathroom to the next level.



Storage
Storage is an important consideration for many of us in the bathroom. If you don’t want towels or bottles lying around, invest in some smart storage solutions. Go for metallic units and glass shelves for a contemporary bathroom. Or opt for a rustic vanity unit for a chic Parisian vibe.

If your bathroom is looking a little drab or tired, it may be time to think about adding some color or switching up the design. You can spend as much or as little as you want. Paint the walls and add some accessories for a simple, affordable makeover. Or upgrade the suite, change the layout and go for a completely new theme. Take inspiration from showrooms and magazines. Don't be afraid to mix and match trends and pay attention to the detail. Often, the finishing touches can make all the difference.
