How to Decorate an Ocean Inspired Bathroom

Colors: most landlords do not let their tenants paint, so in order to get that pop of ocean-inspired color you will have to use your accent pieces and bathroom décor.

 

Use woods: put up a wood framed mirror or other wood accessories to make your bathroom get that ocean vibe.

 

Rope: rope is a huge part of being out on the ocean. Buy some nautical rope and use it as a décor piece on one of the walls in your bathroom. The white will contrast perfectly with the blues and green you’ll already have in the area.

Easy Spring Cleaning Hacks to Make Life Easier

Steam-clean: put a bowl of water and lemon juice in your microwave on high for three minutes and let the steam lessen all that gunk on the sides. Once the time is done all you have to do is wipe the dirt away.

 

Wax the stove: clean your stove and then put car wax on it. The wax will keep the stove shiny and make cleaning up any mess easier (it will just wipe away).

 

Clean windows on a cloudy day: do you hate cleaning your window and then having them dry with streaks and stains? Clean your windows on a cloud day to avoid this. A sunny day makes your windows dry too quickly, thus leaving streaks.
