When you’ve lived in a place for a long time it can be easy to ignore things; when you are away on a vacation or work travel and return home everything looks different and the areas in need of improvement become very obvious. Perhaps that dorm or camp bedding that was so cute now just looks dated and worn or the bathroom simply looks drab and dated. Not to worry – there are some quick and easy home décor updates that can change the look of a room in minutes.
The bathroom is a great place to start since experts recommend changing the shower curtain and bath mat on a regular basis. Take the time to look around and see what other improvements might be helpful – a shower bench or chair can add a spa-like touch to the bathroom plus it is very handy for shampooing hair and shaving legs; consider investing in teak bathroom accessories as teak is naturally water resistant. Before you replace the shower curtain you may wish to install a curved shower curtain rod which will help to create extra elbow room.
Transform the look of a bedroom in minutes by investing in a new bed ensemble. Most modern bed ensembles include a bed skirt, a comforter and decorative pillow shams; the individual pieces are typically designed to coordinate perfectly while not matching precisely. If new bedding is not in the budget then a colorful throw or some toss pillows can be used to update a mundane bedroom or if you are feeling more ambitious you may wish to install a bed canopy.
