If you are afraid to walk into your outdated bathroom and dream of change, we have a list of cheap and easy to do bathroom decorating ideas.
The most important project you can do to improve your bathroom is to increase lighting. A Swedish study found that lighting, paired with the right colors, affects mood. Changing your lighting can be easy and affordable, plus it makes small bathrooms look bigger and more beautiful.
Older lighting fixtures and fluorescent lighting produce unattractive shadows and unattractive color tones on your skin. If replacing the fixture is not possible, you can enhance your light bulb with a new neon bulb that has a warm color of light thrown on a sunny and sunny day.
After you improve the quality of your bathroom lighting, paint is the next quick and easy update. Choose bright colors for large surfaces such as walls and save darker and richer tones for accents. Check to see how your color choices look in your new lighting before you paint, because the color temperature can change the color colors.
Set aside a weekend, invite friends and try some of these DIY bathroom decorating ideas to give your bathroom a facelift.
