Your bathroom should be the place where you relax, refresh and recharge, so make sure you’re not short-changing yourself with drab fixtures, fittings and accessories. Whether you have hundreds to spend on a revamp or just a few pounds, you can make changes that will improve your bathroom and revive your spirits. Here are five ideas to get you started.
Introduce a new look with a brand new suite
The most expensive option to transform your bathroom is to get rid of your old bathroom suite and introduce a complete new design. This is obviously going to cause you a fair degree of upheaval, so avail yourself of all the design help and information that you can find to ensure you make the choice that best suits your needs. Make a scale drawing of the available space and take time to check that everything fits and works properly. Choose from a huge range of styles and designs from classical to contemporary for your dream bathroom.
Change your fittings
Dingy taps can ruin the look and feel of an otherwise acceptable suite, so have a look at some of the ranges on offer to give you a Better Bath and sink. Taps, handles and plugs come in a range of designs and finishes, from reproduction antique style, to cutting edge glass and chrome. With such a huge variety to choose from there is sure to be a style that will transform your suite, making it look as though you changed much more than just the taps.
Add some new tiles
The best surface for attaching new tiles is old tiles, meaning you can quickly change the look of your bathroom by retiling some or all of your walls. Add a border for extra definition or why not try some eye-catching mosaic tiles for a whole new look at minimum cost?
Update your shower
A shower is a great way to wake up in the morning and with minimum use of water it’s economical too. If you don’t already have one, try installing an over-bath shower and see the difference it makes to the look and feel of the room. A smart screen or shower curtain adds an extra dimension without blowing the budget.
Inject colour with accessories
Fluffy towels come in every colour imaginable so splash out on the best quality you can afford in a colour that complements or contrasts with your colour scheme. Extra touches such as pretty containers and bottles, toothbrush holders and mugs can all help to create a co-ordinated look that will look as though you’ve used the services of a designer.
So whether you budget several hundred pounds or just a few pounds, it’s possible to transform your bathroom to create a relaxing haven that you can enjoy at your leisure.
