    Now, there's only so much you can do to renovate the Bay Area apartments for rent if you're a resident, but that doesn't mean that your hands are completely tied when you're trying to beautify your home's interiors. In fact, there's a wide range of non-invasive, inexpensive, and completely DIY projects you can take on for your bathroom, and each will help you transform the space into something that perfectly reflects your unique personality. You'll be able to easily transform what's normally the smallest part of your home in to the largest, at least where personality and character are concerned, and you'll be able to do it with minimal hassle if you follow some of these easy tips.

    An Easy Start: DIY Candles

    No matter the bathroom, it'll look that much better when you outfit it with some of your own homemade candles. This might seem daunting at first, but the truth is, creating your own candles is something you can do all within the comfort of your own home. This candlemaking guide lays out the steps, and once you have the process mastered, you'll be able to save time and money when it comes to getting your candles, not to mention add a bit of custom flair that perfectly melds with your dream bathroom.

    DIY Bathroom Storage: The Mason Jar

    DIY and mason jars seem to go hand-in-hand, don't they? It might have something to do with the fact that these handy jars are so easy to repurpose, and when it comes to your bathroom, turning them into storage that can hold your toiletries, cosmetics, and the like, is as easy as buying a few jars, decorating them to match your vision, then setting them up in the places where they'll best fit your bathroom.

    Install a Multipurpose Toilet Shelf

    A new shelf is a simple enough bathroom upgrade, and you can use it to keep a few decorations on, or to house a few essential that can't quite fit in the bathroom cabinet. If you really want to get advanced, though, you can kick things up to the next level by using the shelf as a spot for extra toilet paper rolls and installing a toilet paper holder beneath said shelf. It's like killing two birds with one stone, and all who visit and use the bathroom will be wondering how you came up with such a genius idea.

    DIY Bathroom Signage

    For decorating made simple, you can always turn to some custom signage. There are plenty of ways to approach this endeavor, but if you're looking to keep it as simple as possible, you'll want to turn to Create & Babble's guide on DIY Bathroom Signs, which will just require you to grab a few basic chalkboards and craft some custom stencils. You can get it all done for just a few dollars, making this a highly-affordable way to improve your bathroom's look both functionally and practically.

    Hang Some Plants

    Looking to improve aesthetics and air quality at the same time? You'll want to look into hanging a few bathroom plants, then, as these will help you hit both goals with minimal fuss. The Spruce has the lowdown on which plants will survive best in you bathroom, and you'd do well to take a look, since any plants you have in this space will need to be resistant to the high levels of humidity a bathroom produces. Specific options include these hardy species:

    • Aloe Vera
    • Bromeliads
    • Cyclamen
    • Bamboo
    • Dumb Cane
    • Snake Plants
    • Spider Plants
    • Orchids

    For a bit of extra flair, think of unique ways to display these plants too. Sure, a both that rests on a shelf or the floor is the most straightforward way to go, but you can add some visual appeal if you hang a few of these from the ceiling, and it'll make for a more balanced distribution of green around your bathroom space.

    Try the Storage Ladder

    If you want to add storage space without installing shelves or playing around with the cabinets, you can just invest in a ladder. You won't use this one to climb, though. Find something cute and rustic, and you'll soon discover that you can hang your own bins and baskets from the rungs of the ladder. This is an easy way to increase space without messing around with any installation or trying to find room on your existing shelves for a whole bunch of baskets.

    Throw in Your Own Rug

    If you've got a bit of skill with the sewing machine, you might want to tackle this DIY Bathroom Rug project. There are so many ways your custom rug can take shape, and doing it yourself allows you to experiment with different fabrics and textures. The end result should be something that's ideal for your dream bathroom setup, so be sure to measure twice, cut once, and sew carefully so you have something that's well worth displaying in your most intimate home space.

    Organize Your Medicine Cabinet

    When's the last time you took a few moments to seriously rearrange what was in the medicine cabinet? We're not talking about just moving a few things around, either. We mean taking everything out, then putting it back in its proper place with some style? The Merrythought has some tips on how you can turn your medicine cabinet into a well-ordered space, and the DIY nature of this task makes it a project that you might thoroughly enjoy (rather than loathe).
