Let’s face it, our bathrooms aren’t the nicest part of our house. They can be small, cramped, poorly lit, and the cherry on top is that vent fan that sounds like it came straight out of those boxy pickups that your uncle used to drive. When not given enough attention, our powder rooms tend to collect tacky decor that would have been outdated in 1990. In other words, our bathrooms need help to be their best selves. And if you feel they just aren’t cutting it, then it’s time for a little change. Fortunately, there are plenty of small ways to spruce things up in the water closet that can measurably breathe life into it without a full bathroom remodel. As with many things in life, all you have to do is focus on the details.
To solve the problem of poor lighting, the first thing to do is revamp your bathroom’s light bulbs. The advent of budget-friendly LEDs means that there are all sorts of neat bathroom lighting ideas out there for you to take advantage of. The first order of business is, of course, to replace the single incandescent bulb setup in your powder room with something with a bit more vitality. Most LED bathroom light fixtures are lightyears ahead in brightness and style. You can top this addition off with some accent vanity lights or even a mirror backlight for an added touch of modernity.
