Genevieve Gorder, interior designer and host of "Stay Here" on Netflix is our go-to girl when it comes to simple home renovation ideas that pack a big punch.
Today, she's showing you how to make your bathroom look and feel bigger and more luxurious — without breaking the bank.
"I think the bathroom is kind of like the new she shed," Genevieve says. "It's where we all hide out!"
And if you're going to use your bathroom as a getaway, you want it to feel less like a bathroom and more like your own at-home spa.
Get Genevieve's tips below and watch the video above to see them in action.
1. ADD A BOLD POP OF COLOR
"I'm giving you all full permission to go a little bit bolder, a little bit crazier in the bathroom with color, with patterns — you can do whatever you want," the designer says. "Have fun!"
"I always say bring in a bold color," Genevieve continues. Make sure your choice is something you enjoy, but also that it has longevity.
2. FRAME YOUR MIRROR
Creating a simple frame around your mirror can make a plain old reflective surface look much more luxurious. You can use any kind of adhesive, you can nail it up — whatever works for your space.
This is an easy and inexpensive way to add dimension, Genevieve says.
3. CHOOSE A LOW LIGHT PLANT
"The great thing about the bathroom is there's a lot of humidity, so a plant can live," the designer says.
But because bathrooms often don't have a lot of natural light, you want to choose a plant that doesn't require much sun.
Ferns are great for the bathroom, because they're low-light plants. They thrive in the dark, and they will add a pop of greenery that makes a big difference.
"You get that natural texture in the bathroom — with all that hardscaping — that you really need," Genevieve says.
4. ARRANGE YOUR SOAPS AND LOTIONS WITH EXTRA CARE
Just like the kitchen, the bathroom can be small and tight — so you want everything in your space to have purpose.
Arrange your bathroom tools (soaps, lotions, bath salts, Q-tips, cotton balls) with extra care. Select the items you really use and display them on a pretty brass tray.
"Make the hardworking things look good!"
5. ADJUST YOUR TOWEL BAR
By moving your towel bar further up the wall — raising it to around six feet high — you can create the illusion that your bathroom is taller than it actually is. This doesn't cost a thing, but it will instantly draw the eye up.
