Individual design tips for bathrooms

Turning old into new – that’s the trick to upcycling your bathroom. How can a few discarded objects be used to create one-of-a-kind yet useful items to give your bathroom a personal touch? Here are a few suggestions.

You do not always need to renovate the entire bathroom to create a new atmosphere. Sometimes the smallest change can make the biggest difference! A few personal details such as new decorative items can be enough to bring a breath of fresh air into your bathroom.

In recent years, the trend of upcycling – redesigning objects which have outlived their use in order to provide them with a new function and possibly a different style – has seen a surge of popularity in all areas of the home. This explains why even the simple pallet now graces modern homes in the form of coffee tables or bed frames.

Bathrooms can also benefit from such creative solutions, with a redecorated old ladder, for example, becoming a towel rail or clothes rack, or an old basket being transformed into a stylish laundry hamper.

Do-it-yourself in your bathroom

Objects that we cannot part with and that can be converted into special design elements also promote the idea of sustainability in our own four walls. An old chair that is no longer suitable for the dining room, for example, can still work as a clothes rack in the bathroom in a shabby chic look. A little sandpaper, chalk paint and a colourless varnish or wood wax as a surface finish can spruce up many wooden objects in no time.

Other examples of practical upcycling ideas for the bathroom:

  • a preserving jar converted into a soap dispenser
  • a fresh coat of paint on fruit boxes can produce another shelf unit for towels
  • decorated glasses, tins and buckets can be used as trendy storage boxes
  • empty bottles, etc. make excellent vases

Creativity knows no bounds – so perhaps an object you have already discarded will soon find its way back into your bathroom.
