Declutter

Clearing out unnecessary clutter can help give your bathroom more modern look and from a practical point of view, makes it easier to keep it clean. Less clutter can also help make your bathroom look bigger and brighter. For a quick declutter, take everything you use on a regular basis and store it in a cabinet or cupboard rather than leaving it lying around on the side of the sink or shower. Other items that aren’t used regularly can be taken out of the bathroom and stored elsewhere.

Change your lighting

Adding extra light fittings or increasing the wattage on your existing light bulbs can help brighten things up in your bathroom. Placing a lamp in the area can also help create a flattering light which will alleviate a dark and dingy bathroom, however, ensure it’s positioned at a safe distance from any water sources and that the cord doesn’t present a hazard.

This is a simple and effective way to modernise your bathroom. Shower curtains can make the bathroom look smaller and darker. Replace a curtain with a glass shower screen brightens up the space, but the advantages don’t stop there.
