Transform your rental property bathroom

Old and tired tiles, mismatched Bathroom fixtures, and dated shower curtains. This is a huge downside to being a renter and inhabiting a Rental Property Bathroom. Rather than look at your rental property as a temporary home, look at it as an opportunity to make it your home. After all, you’re paying to live there! You can take control of your new bathroom and make changes to it to make it feel less like a rental and more like home. These might be small changes, but they’ll make a huge impact in your space.

DIY projects aren’t for everyone, but these transformative bathroom ideas are too easy to implement. We promise you’ll want to spend your next free weekend transforming your rental property bathroom.

Add more storage

If you’ve lived in more than one rental property, then you’ve likely noticed that there’s very little bathroom storage. Often the bathroom vanity is the only source of storage and it’s never enough. Instead of leaving shampoo bottles on the floor of the shower, add a shower caddie to better organize what you need. Outside of the shower, you can install a wall-mounted shelf. If you’ve always wanted to add a wall-mounted shelf to the bathroom without drilling holes into the wall, you’re in luck! Some units can be mounted with silicone glue; it doesn’t stick to tile and can be easily removed without damaging the tile. You get the organization and display room you need, and your landlord will be happy too.

These bathrooms have added storage thanks to a wall mounted shelf and shower caddie.

Add a tension rod for privacy

Did your rental property bathroom come without a shower curtain? As with most rental properties, drilling holes into the wall is not allowed unless you’re given explicit permission from your landlord. What you can do is install a tension rod in the bathroom. It doesn’t require any drilling into the tile and is an upgraded look compared to standard shower curtain rods. Add a colourful shower curtain to complete the bathroom look.

Incorporate Colour or Patterns

Rental property bathrooms tend to remain neutral for the most part since they’re designed to accommodate different people inhabiting the space. The bathroom is a room that should be your oasis, and you can transform it into your own personal space by adding your personal style or flair to it. If painting is not an option, accessorize your bathroom instead. Bring in coordinating bath mats and countertop accessories to match the shower curtain. Stick to one colour scheme and use different shades of it to create a visually appealing space.

Freestanding furniture doubles as decor

If storage is the primary concern in your rental property bathroom, bringing in a small piece of freestanding furniture is the way to go. The size of the bathroom will dictate what you buy, but a small corner piece with some drawers could be exactly what you need. Feel free to add some decor, or put perfume or cologne bottles on display. It will help decorate the space and add pops of colour.

Temporary wallpaper

Remember the times when wallpaper used to be a nightmare? Not anymore! Wallpaper has come a long way and is now a renter’s best friend. Removable wallpaper is gaining popularity thanks to its stylish designs and affordability. Decorate all the walls of your bathroom with temporary wallpaper, or only do one wall. It’s up to you; no matter your decision, it’ll transform those off-white, unbearable walls into something much more special.

Update the fixtures

Swap out the current shower head and fixtures, including the toilet paper holder and towel ring if they’re not permanently glued or drilled into the wall. Bring the existing fixtures to your nearest hardware store to ensure you’re replacing them with the right size/fit. It’s an additional cost to you, but one that you’ll be thankful for. If you shop around for the best price, you’ll be left with matching fixtures that complement the hard work and decor you’ve put into your new bathroom space. Don’t forget to keep the old fixtures in case you move out. Simply take down the new hardware and put the old hardware back.

Upgrade the hardware

The door knobs and handles on the cabinets don’t have to be a permanent fixture in your rental property bathroom. Take a visit the local hardware store and find new knobs and cabinet handles. You would be surprised at how easy it is to transform the look of your bathroom by replacing old, dated hardware with brand new hardware. It doesn’t even have to be expensive, and it’s an easy DIY project to complete. Store the old hardware for your landlord and replace it when you move out. Of course, you have the luxury of taking the new hardware you bought wherever you go!

The bathroom is often the first room anyone visits when they wake up in the morning, and it’s the last room you’ll be in before you go to sleep. That’s why it’s so important to decorate your bathroom with these finishing touches to make it feel like your private space, even if you are a tenant.
