6 ways to refresh your bathroom for spring

It’s the season of spring cleaning, which makes it the perfect time to give your bathroom a little TLC. Here are six simple ways to revive your wet areas and make your bathroom blossom.

 

Spruce up your towel collection

The changing of seasons is the perfect excuse to ditch that pile of crusty mismatched towels and treat yourself to high-quality linen that oozes comfort and style.

For an extra special touch, why not look into monogramming your family’s names? Not only does it give an indulgent sense of personalisation, it also prevents mix-ups – perfect for those busy morning rushes.

 

Bring in spring scents

From herbal hand soaps to citrusy candles to floral room sprays, there are plenty of ways to inject the smell of spring into your bathroom.

If you’re a fan of fruity scents, try bergamot, lemon, lime, orange or grapefruit to herald the season of spring. If flowers are more your thing, you might want to look at jasmine, lavender and ylang ylang. Herbaceous scents that are quintessentially spring include basil, rosemary and marjoram.

 

Invest in nifty new storage solutions

The bathroom is often one of the first rooms in the house to become cluttered, therefore it’s the perfect starting point for a spring clean. To counteract the chaos, take some time to sift through your bathroom cupboards and set up a new storage system for housing all your products.

There are a couple of ways you can organise everything to create a streamlined space: install a few towel racks, hang basket shelves on the wall, designate a cleaning supply tub, apply adhesive hooks to hang hair tools, upcycle an old bar cart for bathroom essentials – the list goes on!

 

Introduce a pop of greenery

What better time to introduce a humidity-loving houseplant into your bathroom than the season of nature? Ferns, spider plants, peace lilies, orchids, monstera and gardenia are all suitable options for withstanding the moisture-heavy conditions of the bathroom.

A small plant or two can brighten up the space surrounding your bathroom sink, but if counter space is limited, you can try hanging plants from a tension rod, mounting them on tiles with adhesive hooks, placing them on a shelf, or even popping them in your shower!

 

Change up your shower curtain

We love the idea of a statement shower curtain as a non-permanent way to revamp your bathroom space.

Tap into the spring theme by opting for something in a fresh seasonal shade like mauve, sky blue, sea foam green, peachy orange or bubblegum pink. If prints are more your thing, then a floral shower curtain is the perfect way to signify that spring is here.

 

Play with artwork

For that finishing touch, a spot of artwork is a lovely addition to any bathroom. While you can save the fancy stuff for the living areas, a small framed print is a great way to inject a bit of personality into your bathroom.

Stock up on a few cheap photo frames and get creative – peruse the pretty pages of a lifestyle magazine, find a quirky postcard or two, or cut up a sheet of floral wrapping paper to insert into your frames. Best of all, you can switch up your artwork as the seasons change.
