Too often, the bathroom is looked at like one of those unpleasant spaces that few like but everyone needs. In that sense, they’re kind of like the insurance of the home improvement world: life can get pretty messy without them, but most of us aren’t aficionados. However, a big part of why many of us just don’t like toilets all that much is that our toilets just aren’t all that great.
The average home tends to have a water closet that is cramped, poorly ventilated, poorly lit, and whose styling looks like something out of those black and white movies grandpa tunes into every evening. And sure, that kind of style may have been acceptable during Perry Mason’s time, but it doesn’t fly now. The times are a-changing, and so it’s time to think of some bathroom updates that can freshen up your antiquated water closet’s look and feel.
Remodeling your dingy powder room doesn’t have to be difficult. There are plenty of small ways to improve a small bathroom and bring it into the 21st century. Most of these projects are breezy DIY ones, although calling in a trained professional wouldn’t be a bad idea for some of the more complex ones.
Add An Accordion Mirror
For those of us who may not have space for a floating vanity or even just a mirror, there is a solution. If windows and a lack of free wall space thwart your dreams of having a mirror in the powder room, simply get a mirror that can be wall-mounted. Specifically, get and install a neat accordion mirror, as these make very efficient use of scarce wall space without blocking windows or other fixtures. An accordion mirror can easily fit discretely between two windows, so you get a neat bathroom improvement without losing any natural light.
