5 Simple Ways to Refresh Your Bathroom

In the bustling rhythm of daily life, few spaces in our homes witness as much activity as the humble bathroom. One of the most frequently used rooms in a home, it is often a shared space that can quickly become a hub of disorder. By introducing some simple yet effective elements, you can breathe new life into your bathroom, improving both the functionality and aesthetics without the need to embark on a major renovation. In this journal post, we will explore how even the smallest changes can have a significant impact on the overall feel of this much-used space, helping to transform it into an inviting and functional haven. Read on to discover five easy ways to revitalise your bathroom, creating a room that is not only utilitarian but also a reflection of your personal style.

1. Small Baskets for Organisation

Clutter can quickly accumulate in the bathroom, especially around the vanity area. To help your morning routine become more efficient and enjoyable, handwoven baskets are ideal for accessible storage that is textural and visually appealing. They sit beautifully on a vanity top, on shelving or under cabinets and will also help to keep things organised inside bathroom drawers and cupboards. Hair accessories, makeup, and jewellery will have a designated home in small palm fibre baskets with lids, while medium-sized woven baskets provide a neat storage solution for hair products, toilet paper and towels.

2. Textural Towels

Nothing says fresh and clean like a set of new towels, instantly revitalising the bathroom. Not only do they serve a practical purpose, but they also contribute to the overall visual interest of the space. Handwoven waffle weave towels will introduce a textural element to the bathroom, offering warmth and interest to the cool surfaces. If a whole new set is outside of your budget, consider treating yourself to a hand towel with an interesting weave to add a touch of luxury and texture to the space. Or add something small like handcrafted hemp washcloths for an easy way to add texture.

3. Jute Mat for Comfort

Stepping onto a cold, hard floor in the morning is never pleasant. To enhance the comfort factor, place a jute mat on the floor. Its natural fibres not only feel great underfoot but also add a layer of warmth and an earthy element to the bathroom. It's amazing how a simple addition like this can make a significant difference in the overall comfort of the space.

4. Laundry Basket or Tall Potted Plant

To address the daily issue of worn clothes, introduce a stylish handwoven laundry basket to your bathroom. It serves as a designated spot for the whole family to place used clothing, helping to maintain a tidy space. Alternatively, a tall potted plant works perfectly in a laundry basket, adding a touch of greenery and contributing to the overall sense of freshness in the room.

5. Handwoven Lighting for Ambience

Lighting plays an important role in creating the right atmosphere in any room. While it’s crucial to have great lighting in the bathroom for grooming, a handwoven pendant light or wall sconce will elevate the ambience of this space, contributing to a luxury holiday-at-home feeling. This addition not only casts a warm and inviting glow at night but also introduces a layer of texture to the ceiling or walls, creating a more visually dynamic space. More of an investment piece, this may require an electrician for installation but is well worth it for creating wow factor.
