Do you ever have those days when you just want a nice, long shower to replenish your energy after a hard day of work? With the help of a few simple upgrades to your bathroom, you can create a T&B that will allow you to fully relax. A bonus: You don’t need to break the bank or call a handyman to make these updates happen!

Update your fixtures

One simple way to change the look of your bathroom is by updating your fixtures—from your faucets, to your showerhead, to any other fixture you may have. You don’t have to splurge too much for this, since there are plenty of affordable options available out there, and since you can also install them by yourself.

After you’ve updated your fixtures, make sure to clean them at least once a month, so they always look good as new. For your showerhead, all you need to do is to place a bag of vinegar over it, leave it there for a few hours or overnight, then scrub it. Meanwhile, to clean your faucets, simply use a solution of water and dish soap, then dry it with a clean cloth.

Change your shower curtain

A shower curtain is a great way to add a pop of color into your bathroom, so make sure to buy one that features a design that you really love. Aside from making your T&B look prettier, updating your shower curtain is also a practical thing to do, since shower curtains can easily breed mold and mildew.

Invest in new storage techniques

From bottles of shampoo and conditioner to soap and body wash to beauty products, we normally keep a lot of stuff inside our bathrooms, so it is important to invest in great products that can hold them well. Maybe install some shelves, or bring in some boxes, or hang up a shower caddy—whichever you do, you’ll be glad you have a lot of area to store all the products you’ll need.

Another option you can go for is adhesive hooks. These are great for holding your towels and clothes, plus they won’t take up too much space!

Re-grout your tiles

One important part of the bathroom that you may often neglect is your tile grout. You may not notice that your grout has gotten dirty, or that it is beginning to disintegrate. If it’s just dirty, then take the time to really do a deep-cleaning of it, but if the grout really needs to be reapplied, buy some pre-mixed grout that you can easily use.

Add some accessories

Who ever said the bathroom can’t be accessorized? With just a pretty new mirror, a small plant, or even some cute framed photos or prints, you can easily revamp your T&B and make it a space you’ll enjoy spending time in.
