At the start of a new year we tend to look around to see where we can make improvements and big changes. It’s impressive how even little adjustments to your everyday surroundings can impact your general mood and daily actions in a big way.

One of the best rooms in the house to tackle is the washroom. It’s easy to make little changes to the space that impact you positively on a daily basis. For many of us our washroom is where we spend the most time getting ready, so it’s only natural that if this space feels more luxurious, you are going to be more likely to pamper yourself.

The good news here is that even little luxuries can make a big impact. Here are five simple ways you can spruce up your washroom to make it a happier space.

Add glamour with an awesome mirror: It’s amazing how much of a difference a nicely framed mirror makes. In a small washroom it anchors the room and leaves it feeling cozier and more polished looking. Our favorite is the Kartell Only Me Mirror.

Wallpaper: We love adding wallpaper to a washroom, especially in a powder room. These rooms are often tiny and low commitment that it’s a good space to experiment with playful colors, patterns and textures. Today’s wallpaper options are moisture-resistant, making them easy to maintain – even in a washroom. Select either a cheerful paper that will help waken you, or one in a more neutral, soothing tone.

A new shower curtain: This is such a simple one, but many people fail to change their shower curtain on a regular basis. The inner liner of shower curtains should be replaced every 3-6 months. While changing the outer curtain isn’t necessary, putting up a new one adds a crisp cheerfulness to the room, and a sense of newness – we highly recommend it.

Keep supplies well-stocked and nicely displayed: Everyone has key items they use on a regular basis. Having them neatly stored and readily available means you won’t get stressed looking for them or having to run to the store to replace them. We like having frequently used items like cotton balls and toothbrushes neatly store in glass containers. Frequently used, larger items can be stored neatly in baskets.
