5 Ways to Freshen Up Your Bathroom for Spring

5 Ways to Freshen Up Your Bathroom for SpringDelicious aromas, beautiful colours and morning dew are all qualities of spring—the season of rebirth and revitalization, as plants regain their flowers and foliage, and animals emerge from hibernation. It’s a fitting season, then, to coordinate with your bathroom; often the place where you start your day in the morning, the bathroom is essential for getting us ready and out the door.

To make the most of the changing season, assess your bath and look for opportunities to freshen up the space. This isn’t limited just to how the space looks, but also how it smells and how you’ll use it. We’ve got a cheat sheet listing everything you should look out for—and solutions on how to make a seamless transition into the spring.

1) Upgrade the Linens

Fresh towels not only keep you dry and comfortable, but can add valuable color accents to the space. Swapping out the linens for more seasonal tones is an easy starting point to freshening up the bathroom, and these bright, pastel Fouta towels are great for both spring and summer.

Try to mix and match a palette of bright, warmer tones—if your bathroom is full of blues and purple, try warming it up with yellow or green instead. Our Basel bath towels come in a variety of colours and feel luxurious after a good bath, helping you achieve a comfortable, springtime spa experience.

2) Replace the Shower Curtain

In addition to linens, the shower curtain is another easy way to instantly change the look and feel of the bathroom. Seek out colors with some energy or designs that evoke the changing season. For example, we’re looking at patterns that make us think of nature, like this Terrasse fabric shower curtain.

For something more subdued yet just as perfect for the springtime, this lilies shower curtain is clean and simplistic in design. It might not be the most vibrant, but it goes a long way to make the space feel fresh.

3) Get Vain

With warmer weather approaching, you’re likely to spend more time out of the house socializing. Get ready to put on your pretty face by adding a small vanity mirror to the bathroom! Mirrors come in so many shapes and sizes, and we’ve got a little bit of everything—including mirrors you can mount to the wall or hang in your shower.

With the right mirror, you can more easily prepare for evening outings and fun days in the sun! While a small mirror doesn’t change the look of the space too much, it certainly changes how you interact with it—allowing you to better get a start to your day without leaving the bath.

4) Make a Wonderful Spring Spa

Cultivating a fresh, springtime space isn’t just a matter of visuals; you can infuse the space with seasonal fragrances as well. Doing so is simple, requiring only an air freshener and deliciously scented soaps. This triopack of scents from Lampe Berger is a great place to start, offering three fresh fragrances: Fresh Linen, Ocean Breeze and Lemon Flower.

As for soap, try out scents that evoke nature and floral accents. Nesti Dante offers a few of these, a couple of which are essentials for a spring refresher. Embrace the soothing scent of Tuscan lavender with this Dei Colli Fiorentii soap bar, or transport yourself to a fragrant lemon grove with an Il Frutetto bar. With a healthy dose of aromatherapy, you revitalize not only the space for the changing season, but your body and mind as well.

Finally, with all that new soap, don’t forget something to scrub it with! With a colorful body scrub sponge, you can make bathing a bit more fun—and we’ve got back scrubbies, too, for those hard-to-reach places.

5) Add Something to the Countertop

Finally, don’t forget the bath accessories. With a coordinated set, you can really make an impression on the overall theme of the space—so it’s important you don’t overlook such a crucial anchor. Accessory sets come in a variety of patterns, and if you want to decorate for the spring, you should seek out fun designs that treat the eyes and get your imagination running.

This pink Ikat bath collection will certainly help you wake up in the morning with its intricate, detailed design. Its beautiful pink hue paired with white make it a natural fit for the spring, carrying a youthful and vibrant energy.

With a touch of sophistication, the gilded bird collection features a shower curtain in addition to its various countertop accessories. If you’re uncertain how to begin refreshing your bathroom, a coordinated set covering all the bases like this one is your best bet!
