Making your bathroom look as luxurious as possible is what every homeowner wants. While that may need some effort to do, you don’t actually need a big decorating budget to pull it off. A bathroom remodel need not be expensive as long as you know how to ‘fake’ the fancy without spending as much money as a complete renovation.

Here are five easy ways to get your bathroom to look extravagant as ever!

Clean Up and Remove All the Clutter

Perhaps the easiest thing you can do that costs nothing at all is to remove all the clutter you’ve accumulated in your bathroom. All those empty bottles of shampoo or an unused canister of body wash should be cleared out. In fact, remove all the personal care items you use inside your bathroom. You can put them back in once you’re done with this little project.

After you’ve removed all of the clutter, it’s time to give your bathroom a nice good cleaning. Make sure you don’t miss any nook and cranny that may give your bathroom a messy look. Use the appropriate cleaning agents to remove all the dirt trapped on your tiles and grout.

Make Your Towels Look Presentable

Hooks make your bathroom feel unsophisticated and ordinary. Buy a couple of sleek-looking metal bars where you can hang your towels. 

Another option is to have a couple of fresh towels placed inside the bathroom. If you have space where you can put a batch of fresh towels, you can roll them up and put them in a neat-looking basket, very much like what you see in five-star hotels. If you don’t have a space dedicated to it, then hanging a wooden shelf might be a good solution.

Give Bathroom Fixtures a New Paint Job

Instead of getting a new set of fixtures, you can always give them a nice coat of paint. If you have a particular theme or design in mind, it’s best to give your bathroom fixtures a nice good paint job to match that theme. This will effectively make your faucets, railings, curtain rods, and hanging bars look brand new and more elegant. It’s also an excellent way to hide some of those hard water stains that may have attached to your fixtures.

Bring In Some Fresh Scents

If you want that fresh vibe whenever you step inside the bathroom, you need to bring in a new set of scents that’s more in tune with the seasons. When it’s summertime, swap out those winter scents you have been using and get a couple of breezy and citrus scents that remind you of the beach. Come spring, use scents that evoke the smell of flowers, fruits, and trees. A luxurious bathroom not only looks like it but also feels and smells like something extravagant and appropriate for the seasons.

Add the Finishing Touches

Remember all those bottles of shampoo and soap you removed? Buy a couple of clear bottles that are uniform in size and design. Transfer all the soap and shampoo to those bottles and label them appropriately to give your bathroom a more cohesive look. For your soap bars, you can buy a simple ceramic bowl and fill it with pebbles or natural stone. Perch your soap on top of those pebbles so that the soapy water has a place to drain instead of leaving it to dry into a gooey mess.
