Looking to revitalize your bathroom decor with a new look? Nearly all decorating styles will eventually fade and go the way of the dinosaurs. Perhaps your bathroom once boasted an attractive, uniform appearance, but now it's tacky and poorly done. The good news is that you can quickly and easily transform your bathroom in just a few steps. To learn more about modernizing an otherwise dated bathroom, keep reading.
Pull Off the Wallpaper
Wallpaper is a dated home decorating trend, and therefore it needs to go. If your bathroom currently features wallpaper, either on a single wall or all walls, consider removing it. Using a wallpaper scraper and "scoring" tool, you can easily remove even the most stubborn wallpaper. And once removed, you'll have a blank palette to work with.
Paint the Walls
Once you've removed the wallpaper, clean and paint the walls of your bathroom to create a more modern appearance. Don't just paint the walls white, but instead choose a bold aesthetically pleasing color, such as sunshine orange or teal. The great thing about decorating a bathroom is that even bold colors such as these will work.
Frameless Shower Door
Don't underestimate the impact your shower door has on the bathroom decor. Many homeowners rarely, if ever, replace their shower door, using the same outdated model for countless years. If you're willing to invest in a new door, however, it will improve your bathroom's atmosphere by adding a modern element to it. Rather than using a generic shower door, choose a frameless shower door for a more modern appearance.
Decorate the Walls
You should also decorate the walls of your bathroom to achieve a more modern appearance. A cuckoo clock is a brilliant accessory that's sure to have a positive impact on the decor. Other ideas to consider include photos, paintings, artwork, etc.
If you look at examples of outdated bathroom designs, you'll notice many of them share a common characteristic: large, wavy shapes with little-to-no symmetry. Therefore, you can achieve a more modern appearance by focusing on clean and straight lines with your bathroom decor.
These are just a few tips to help you achieve a more modern bathroom decor. Feel free to check out some of our previous blog posts for more ideas on how to decorate your bathroom.
