What items should be changed regularly in the bathroom

Some things in the bathroom can become real breeding grounds for bacteria and fungal spores. The main reason for this is the high level of humidity, which promotes the growth of microorganisms and the appearance of mold.

When updating certain items in the bathroom, experts advise choosing reliable alternatives rather than following fashion trends. What things should be changed in the bathroom at the earliest opportunity, Homes and Gardens magazine told.

Tip 1

If you think your bathroom looks a bit outdated or you want to update the space without spending a lot of money, replacing the bathroom mirror is the first place to start, advises Sarah Storms, interior designer and founder of Styled by Storms.

You can choose a large round mirror or a more sophisticated one decorated with moldings or patterns. This simple replacement will instantly update the room and increase the amount of light by adding more reflective surfaces.

Tip 2

Because rugs are usually cleaned much less frequently than necessary, they become a breeding ground for germs. The humidity that is generated in the bathroom while showering creates an ideal environment for the growth of bacteria and mold.

Mats and towels not only wear out over time but can also cause unpleasant odors. Allison Harrison, interior designer and owner of Allito Spaces, said: "A vintage wool rug is a great addition to a bathroom that can be combined with plain towels."

Tip 3

Bathroom lighting is important. Replacing cosmetic lighting will increase functionality and enhance the space. Use beautiful sconces and/or chandeliers to create a cozy atmosphere.

Tip 4

When updating your bathroom fixtures, shelves and vanity should be at the top of your priority list, according to the design experts at Vanities Depot.

"Upgrading bathroom fixtures, such as faucets, can greatly enhance the aesthetics and functionality of a space. Consider choosing a high-quality faucet that complements the overall design. Shiny metallic adds sophistication, while brushed gold comes in a variety of finishes," experts advise.

Tip 5

It's always a good idea to update and expand the storage space for cosmetics and other items in the bathroom. This helps not only to organize the bathroom more conveniently for a better morning routine but also to keep the space tidy.

Try to complement the interior with a wall cabinet or a new dressing table. Buy containers for storing cosmetics. Use flavors based on natural essential oils to create additional comfort.
