With the holidays just around the corner, it’s a great time to make sure your guest bedroom and bathroom are in tip-top shape. Since guest baths aren’t used very frequently, they’re often a lower priority when it comes to upgrades and renovations. If this room has been a bit neglected in your house, let’s take a look at some simple ways you can spruce up your guest bathroom in time to welcome your holiday visitors.
Fresh towels ensure your guest bathroom looks cozy, clean and inviting, and they’re easy to update last-minute. Add a pop of color with new towels in a brighter or bolder hue, or freshen up the room with a plush, patterned rug. If it’s been a while since you upgraded your shower curtain or window treatments, take the time to choose a new color or pattern that brings a more modern look to your guest bath.
Chances are your guests will bring their own toiletries and bathroom essentials, but it doesn’t hurt to offer extras as a back-up. Stock your guest bath with shampoo, soaps, razors and other supplies your visitors may need so they can find something without having to ask. It’s a thoughtful way to make them feel welcome and at home. A photo or piece of table art in front of a vibrant background is also a nice way to warm the room for your guests.
Make your guest bathroom more user-friendly and functional with new features like storage shelves, a handheld showerhead, drawer organizers and an anti-slip bath mat. The goal of a guest bathroom is to make your guests’ stay a comfortable and enjoyable one, so assess the room for any opportunities to add function or make things easier.
If your bathroom feels dim or your lighting is ineffective, a new light fixture can be just the answer. This easy upgrade can be done on short notice without much effort, and fresh, contemporary lighting is more than just functional—it can transform the whole vibe of your space.
Bring the Outdoors In
For a super-quick update that will give your bathroom new life, bring in a few potted plants or fresh flowers. They’ll add color and freshen your bathroom design in an instant. If your bathroom tile happens to be Aequa Tur, then the wood-like outdoor theme is already prevalent.
If You Have a Little More Time…
If you aren’t expecting guests for a few weeks or more, you may have time to make a slightly bigger update to your guest bath. A new quartz vanity countertop, a fresh coat of paint or even a new porcelain tile floor can enhance an outdated guest bathroom and give it a modern look.
