There are no shortage of options for homeowners seeking to spice up their bathrooms and add a bit of character. Whether you want to make your guest bathroom more inviting or give your master bathroom a spa makeover, here are some great ideas to add class and comfort to one of the rooms you spend a lot of time in.
1. Update the mirror:
Mirrors can be one of the most overlooked items in the bathroom but they make a large impact on the overall style and atmosphere of a bathroom. Even the cleanest, brightest bathroom will start to look dingy if the mirror is old, spotted, or discolored from age and water damage. A great way to freshen up your bathroom then is to replace old mirrors with large mirrors that express the aesthetic you desire. There are many styles available to fit any décor and color scheme from minimalist to baroque and everything in between.
2. Smart storage:
Most bathrooms are not immune from clutter but attractive and space-saving storage options can be a sleek and stylish way to keep the room organized and make it feel larger. With baskets for towels, shower caddies, and wall cabinets to contain all of your shampoos, linens, soaps, and makeup your bathroom will look clean and welcoming.
Safe and attractive lighting options for the bathroom have come a long way in recent years with more and more interesting and unique options coming out all the time. Add character with a crystal chandelier or improve task lighting around your vanity and see how much brighter and more inviting your bathroom feels already

6. Guest toiletries:
Nothing makes a person feel welcome and cared for like a carefully thought out and prepared tray of small size toiletries and there is no reason why this should be unique to upscale hotels. Most people do not enjoy having to search through somebody else?s bathroom to find what they are looking for and most hosts would prefer not to have their guests poking through all of their cabinets so why not make it easier on both of you? A bit of forethought and a small investment in some complimentary sized toiletries will make your guests feel comfortable without having to snoop through your stuff.
