LOO IN NEED OF LOVE? Simple Ways to Revamp Your Bathroom

When was the last time you renovated or redecorated your bathroom?  If it was recently, I doubt you are planning to do it again anytime soon. Why should you when you put all that time and money into it?  Over time though, even the most elegant and timeless bathrooms become a little tired.  Here are some simple ways to revive your master bath, powder room or guest bath.  After all, we spend an average of a year and a half of our lives in the bathroom! 

Mirror Makeover
Switch out your standard mirror for a statement maker.

Lose the basic vanity fixture and replace with pendants or sconces on either side of the mirror.  Obviously, we need ample lighting for our daily routine, but don't shy away from sconces.  Just make sure you find one with enough wattage.  On a side note, I'm loving this bathroom!  The gold is fabulous!

There are so many fabulous cabinet knobs and pulls available.  Pick something with flair in place of your basic hardware.  While you're at it, switch out your other accessories - new towel rods, toilet paper holders, everything.
