5 Little Bathroom Upgrade Ideas that Make a Big Difference

Looking to make a splash with your bathroom in 2022 without having to go through a big, expensive renovation? Here are 5 small bathroom upgrade ideas that will make a big difference in your powder room.

Backlight Your Vanity Mirrors

Adding backlighting to the mirrors above your vanity is one of the easiest ways to add sophistication to your bathroom. Plus, choosing dimmable lighting with cool and warm settings gives you full control over the light, so you can do your makeup in the morning and set the mood just right in the evening. 

Add Open Recessed Shelving

Practical and pleasing, open shelving is a great way to add extra storage and extra design space. Whether you want to put in some books, candles, plants, aromatherapy, or just some extra towels, open recessed shelving lets you showcase your personal style while keeping your bathroom from feeling messy or overcrowded. 

Update the Hardware

Changing up the hardware in a bathroom is one of the simplest ways to showcase your personality and revive your space. Plus, the options are endless–choose between gold, brass, vintage ceramic, wood, and more. Maybe even mix and match for a more eclectic feel. Whatever you decide, have fun with it! 

Accent Furniture

Depending on your bathroom size, this idea may not work for everyone, but if you find yourself with some extra space, don’t be afraid to fill it! Little touches can go a long way. Try things like a ladder shelf for plants and linens or a small side table next to the bathtub to display candles and some flowers. 


Switch Out Your Linens

This is one thing that people don’t often think about, but splurging on some soft, luxurious towels and bathrobes can really step up your bathroom’s vibe. Plus, it’s a gift to yourself! Who doesn’t want to feel like they’re at the day spa every time they step out of the shower to slip on their robe?
