7 Tips to Brighten Your Bathroom

I like to think that the bathroom is one of the most important spaces in any home, and it's important to make sure it's bright and welcoming. A bright bathroom can help to create a relaxing and refreshing atmosphere, making it a great place to start and end your day. Here are 7 tips to brighten up your bathroom:

1) Add some light fixtures:

Adding some additional lighting fixtures can go a long way in brightening up your bathroom. You can install some wall sconces or a pendant light above the vanity. Consider installing a dimmer switch so that you can adjust the brightness to your liking, especially if you're a bath taker, like me!

2) Add a fresh coat of paint:

Painting is always a fast and simple way to brighten your bathroom. Painting your bathroom walls with a light color can instantly brighten up the space. White, pale blue, and light gray are great color options for a bright and refreshing feel. Make sure to use a paint with a satin or semi-gloss finish to reflect light and make the space feel even brighter.

3) Hang some mirrors:

We know that mirrors reflect light, so that means it can make your bathroom feel brighter and more spacious with just that simple touch. Hang a large mirror above the vanity or add a few smaller ones throughout the space. You can also consider adding a mirrored cabinet or shelving unit to help reflect light.

4) Add some plants:

Plants are not only beautiful to look at but they can add some natural color and texture to your bathroom while also helping to purify the air. Choose plants that thrive in low-light conditions, such as ferns, snake plants, and peace lilies. I love hanging plants because they help fill the depth of the space while giving it a more earthy feel.

5) Swap out your shower curtain:

If your shower curtain is dark or dull, consider swapping it out for a lighter and brighter option. A white or light-colored shower curtain can help to reflect light and make the space feel more open.

6) Keep it organized:

A cluttered bathroom can make the space feel dark and cramped. Especially having a family. Keeping your bathroom organized can be a little difficult but by adding some storage solutions, such as shelves, baskets, and cabinets you'll be able to keep your countertops clear and tidy.

7) Add some accessories:

Adding some bright and colorful accessories, such as towels, rugs, and artwork can make your bathroom feel like it has more welcoming too! These small touches can help to add some of your own personality and style to your bathroom while also brightening up the space.

All in all, a bright bathroom can help to create a refreshing and relaxing space in your home. By adding some light fixtures, a fresh coat of paint, mirrors, plants, and accessories, you can easily brighten up your bathroom and make it feel like a welcoming retreat.
