Upgrading your Garden City rental home bathroom can seem challenging, particularly if you cannot paint or make any permanent changes. But the reality is that there are several great ways to create an upgraded look and feel, most without needing to get your landlord’s permission. If you’re ready for a bathroom upgrade, take a look at our list of easy, do-it-yourself, and renter-friendly ways to create a look you’ll love.
Add Decorative Touches
Adding a couple of unexpected decorative touches is one of the easiest ways to update an older bathroom. Installing colorful framed art to a plain wall can instantly give character and style to the room. Alternatively, consider adding a curved shower curtain rod, a display of beautiful glass or pottery, or a flower arrangement to a wall, windowsill, or on top of the toilet tank.
Another technique to upgrade the feel of your bathroom is to give it some texture. To give an instance, choose baskets to store linens and other bathroom essentials. You might utilize matching baskets or use complementary styles to provide even more visual interest. Additionally, don’t forget to use cabinets and doors, too! You can place a basket over a cabinet or closet door with a simple hook for easy off-the-floor extra storage.
Why not cover up your rental’s bathroom floor if it looks horrible? A beautiful rug can help hide ugly flooring while giving you a soft place to walk on bare feet. As an alternative, you could even use a vinyl floor cloth, which looks like vinyl flooring but installs like an area rug. Either alternative is quick to install and easy to remove when you’re ready to switch things up.
If you’ve got a green thumb or just like being outdoors, why not bring a little of it into your bathroom? Think about placing some potted houseplants beside the tub or in a vacant corner for bathrooms with adequate sunlight. Plants will not only provide beauty to your place, but they can also freshen the air and make the time spent in your bathroom far more pleasant.
Does the spot over your toilet look a little bare? Give your bathroom an instant upgrade by adding a beautiful over-the-toilet shelf unit. There are many different styles to choose from, and if you opt for one that is freestanding, there is no need to drill holes in the walls. From wood to polished brass, minimalist modern to ornate traditional, a shelving unit can add both storage space and an upgraded feel to your rental home’s bathroom. Best of all, you can take it with you no matter where you go!
