Decorating Your Bathroom and Kitchen

By Marion Jones

For people who seem to have it all or for the people who are bored with their lifestyle, there are a few things that they can do to spruce-up their lives. Maybe one of the best ways though is to start redecorating one's home. Two of the first places you should look at redecorating are your bathroom and kitchen.

These are usually the most overlooked and most used rooms in the entire house. Think about it, have you redecorated at least even one of these rooms within the past few years? The answer is probably going to be no. In which case think back to the last time you even looked closely at your bathroom or kitchen other than to clean them.

More than likely, if you noticed anything at all, you put the idea off until a future date when you could devote more time to refurbishing your bathroom or kitchen, although at that time, the place probably didn't look as old as it does now, after all, the years soon mount up and even though you've been keeping it spotlessly clean you can't stop the slow march of time.

It is probably true that if you took a closer inspection now, you'd find that the curtains are looking a bit drab and ragged around the edges, as are the bathroom mats. And do not even talk about the toilet roll holder. It is quite true that they don't make things like they used to and for a very good reason too!

So, you should do yourself a favour and throw out all that unused clutter in the bathroom and get yourself some new stuff - you will be astonished at what beautiful things you can find nowadays. Anyway, you've probably been eyeing that lovely new bathroom set you noticed in the mall for some time, so at the very least now you will have a good reason to go out and splash out on yourself.

And while you're about it, don't forget to buy that lovely new spice rack you saw for the kitchen and a few mats that can be used in either room. Ideally, they should be resilient to such everyday accidents like water spillage, soap, oil grease, fat and all the other things that somehow seem to become ground into your carpets.

But, if you're looking for some new ideas about decorating your bathroom or your kitchen, there are a number of sources you can get your inspiration from. The best one I've found so far are the catalogues, which you can browse through until you find what you want.

With all these options, you could even swap something that is a bit cheaper for the things you want in the catalogues. This is the easiest method to get your decorating projects off the ground and to keep yourself pleasantly busy for some time and to transform your long suffering bathroom and kitchen into brand new, glitzy areas.
