On average, we spend over 180 hours in our bathroom each year! However, bathrooms are typically one of those rooms that people find hard to style because hero furniture looks more like a vanity & a … loo. So, together with No.2 we’ve curated our top five tips for easy bathroom makeovers that are completely rental friendly, cost effective & quickly elevate the space we spend so much of our time in.
1. Position flowers to add instant glam:
Nothing says 'feel pampered' like fresh flowers. Set a peaceful atmosphere and sense of luxury adding a beautiful Eros Vase. You can head to your garden for a single flower or fun foliage, so this piece of luxury need not be expensive or time consuming.
Don't forget any vessel can be easily turned into a vase by simply adding a jar. We love popping a jar inside the our Small Summit Pot to house our flowers.
2. Add LED lighting under cabinets:
Immediately lifting any space and making a simple vanity stand out, strip LED lights like these LIFX Polychrome LightStrips are super affordable, easy to apply (& remove) & are controlled from your smartphone! You can set timers for them to switch on & off, as well as set a specific ambience with a full range of colour. We love ‘warm light’ in our bathroom.
Fit light strips to the base of your vanity, or underneath shelving to make your bathroom warmer and high-end, instantly.
3. Use fragrance to make your space feel special:
Scent, emotions & memory are all linked when it comes to enjoying a space. No.2 Post-flush perfume drops not only have your back as part of your daily routine, but the stunning blend of mandarin, geranium & bergamot essential oils can be dropped into the hand basin for an easy fragrance hack. If you’re expecting guests, this is a must.
4. Choose a feature plant pot for colour:
Bathrooms can be a little soulless and harsh with their cold tiles, shiny glass and hard surfaces. Plants are exactly what is required to create a welcoming and relaxing guest bathroom. Plants can introduce colour and soften a room. We love a rhipsalis plant with an Etch Pot. If bench space is a consideration try adding a Cork Plant Stand as well as a potted plant. If you need help selecting a plant for your bathroom, you can read our blog article on the subject for guidance.
5. Style useful items within reach:
Thankfully, many bathroom products have had a facelift & can now be styled to add a pop of colour. Products like How We Roll Co have beautifully wrapped toilet paper rolls that can be stacked.
Best of all? No.2 sits pretty on your bathroom shelf in a stylish, reusable glass bottle.
