Not many people would readily consider the bathroom as the prime spot for flower decoration but propping a small vase of flowers on your vanity is a natural yet high-impact way to add a layer of color and a touch of luxury to your bathroom.

A small vase of colorful can also bring freshness to the most unremarkable, mundane moments. Times like when you're getting ready for the long day ahead. Or if you're having guests over soon, featuring floral arrangements in your bath is a lovely way to surprise them as well: It shows your attention to detail and will make them feel extra welcome. Here's a guide to perfecting your bathroom florals.

Bathrooms can be tiny compared to other rooms in your house, but having less open area to place substantial vases. You'll need to become selective with how you display your colorful blooms. If you're short on counter space, you can opt for tiny bud vases. Or, use single blossoms or sprigs of greenery. You can put one of these just beside the hand basin or line a few up on the windowsill to make a feature.

If you have extra room, try putting a larger vase onto a chic stool in a dark corner of the bathroom and make a floral statement.

Once you're determined to add blooms to your bathroom, you need to be mindful of which flowers you choose. Not every blossom handles the humidity that comes with this space well.

Here are some ideas to try: Flowers like orchids work well. Or consider Australian natives such as eucalyptus and banksias that are bathroom-happy botanicals with long shelf-life.

Need some quick tips on getting your bathroom bloom arrangement to be just perfect?

  • Make sure your arrangements are compact, so there’s less chance of the flowers getting knocked over.
  • Make sure to keep your blossoms away from direct sunlight or places that will radiate heat, such as the bath – particularly if you're using delicate flowers.
  • Make sure you use heated light at a minimum for longer-lasting flowers.
  • Change the water regularly.Ready to take your botanical bathroom experience to the next level?
  • Get some eucalyptus from the shops – or your backyard if you can.
  • Run some string or twine around a few stems.
  • Fix it up in a bunch in the shower.
  • Grind the leaves a little so while you shower a steamy eucalyptus experience greets you every day.

When prepping your home for viewing, little touches such as a fresh sprig of blooms in your bathroom leave a favorable impression with potential homebuyers.

Home improvements are a vital part to keeping your home up-to-date with the times and also to ensure that it doesn’t lose value when it comes time to sell.

To save money, many homeowners take the do-it-yourself route and use the tools at their disposal to upgrade their homes. Sites like YouTube have made it easier than ever to follow step-by-step tutorials that show you how to make substantial repairs and upgrades to your home without having to pay a professional.

The down side, however, is that when you choose to DIY, you take on the risk of going over budget by making mistakes. You also risk stretching out your project weeks or months longer than necessary due to a lack of time to work on it.

In today’s post, we’re going to talk about how you can stay on budget and on track to finish your home improvement project without bringing in the professionals.

Making a timeline

Let’s start with the big picture for your home renovations. When deciding which improvements to make, it’s important to know your limits in terms of the work you can do.

Set a reasonable number of hours you can work on your projects per week. Go easy on yourself. Most of us are already tired when we get home from work and probably won’t be able to start tackling big projects in the evenings. Rather, try to give yourself one weekend day to work on your projects and one weekend day to relax.

The most important aspect of creating your timeline is to try and keep your schedule open. So, write down the time you want to work on your home in your calendar, planner, or whichever app or tool you use to plan your time.

This will help you to avoid creating conflicting events and obligations, and help you stay on track to finishing your improvement projects.

If you’re looking for an evening activity related to your home improvement projects, it’s a good idea to start watching some video tutorials of people doing the same renovations as you. This will help you avoid mistakes and look out for common obstacles that you’ll face along the way.

Budgeting your improvement

You’ll want to save up for your project in advance, if possible, to avoid accumulating credit card debt. Your home improvement project should, in effect, gain you money by increasing the value of your home, not make you lose money on credit card interest payments.

Budgeting in itself is an art that few of us are taught in school. Fortunately, there are several free budgeting apps available. Or, you can simply draw one up yourself.

The key to creating a home improvement budget is to know how much of your monthly savings you can devote to this project without having to dip into other funds. To do this, you’ll need a clear understanding of where your income goes.  

Once you have a budget and a timeline for your home improvement project, you’re ready to begin. Just make sure you check in on your timeline and your budget throughout the length of the project to make sure you’re meeting your goals and aren’t overspending.
