If you are a mom, (and even if you are not) you know how hard it is to maintain a household. Pretty much it includes EVERYTHING from organizing the kitchen to cleaning (and scrubbing) the bathroom. We live in a small home and one way for me to keep everything in order and clutter-free.
I want to share these simple bathroom fixes I did personally in our master bathroom. We have just a small space and I want to maintain it while adding some “enhancements” and keeping it simple and clean.
Add a wall collage to bring life to a plain wall.
We have a blank wall at the back of our toilet bowl which is the main focus upon entering the bathroom. And so it has been that way since we moved and one day I just thought of adding something to add life to that blank wall. This is the blank wall that is going to be my canvass :
I bought some very nice frames from the Dollar Store. They do have a lot of choices for design, it will all depend on your preference. You can actually design as to how the collage will look like or how big you want it to be. So here’s the finished wall. It is not much but surely it made a difference and brought character to the bathroom wall.
Use fresh flowers to accent a boring space.
I just picked this rose from our neighbor’s garden (of course with permission) and put it on top of our toilet tank which used to be a boring space (see above photo). Since I don’t have a slim vase at home I used a transparent drinking glass as vase. The effect is awesome and refreshing to the eye.
Use scented candle for decor and eliminate odor.
I fancy scented candles. I normally use it to offset a strong odor especially in the kitchen while cooking. Since our home is small, sometimes the strong smell of food takes times to evaporate.
I also use scented candles for relaxation. In addition, I used it to accentuate our bathroom. Not only it becomes a decoration but emits a pleasant smell that set you into a good mood.
Clean faucets with Vinegar.
Are you having problems cleaning bathroom faucets from soap scums? The solution is very easy. You can put a small amount of white vinegar into a wash cloth and wipe the faucet with it. You will be amazed at how the soap suds will suddenly disappear and you will have a sparkling faucet. Not only will it be clean but vinegar is also known as a disinfectant, far safer as compared to commercial cleansers.
It is easy to brighten up and clean our bathroom with the readily available things inside our home. It doesn’t require to spend big or splurge into decorations while you can use simple inexpensive things.
