Don’t splash out on a brand new bathroom when you can easily add interest and value to your existing room in just a few hours.
The bathroom is an important room for cleaning, energising, winding down and relaxing, so take a little time to revive yours with a few easy styling tricks for a brand new bathroom with minimum cash and effort.
Update your bathroom fittings
Dingy, old-fashioned and outdated bathroom fixtures can make the room seem drab, so browse through some catalogues or websites to source ideas for new fittings. A coherent theme, colour and style will help to create a designer look at a fraction of the designer price tag, so whether you fancy modern chrome or antique brass or gold effect, choose a style and stick to it.
Only buy the best fixtures and fittings
Buy the best quality that you can comfortably afford as you really do get what you pay for and cheaper fittings may not stand up well to regular use. Good quality fittings will last for a long time and keep their good looks so your bathroom won’t start to look shabby. Bristan taps come with an outstanding five year guarantee for example, in a vast range of styles with matching and complementary accessories including heated towel rails for added luxury.
Add some cosy finishing touches
Nothing feels quite as pampering as a warm, soft and fluffy bath towel to snuggle into after a relaxing soak in the bath. Cheap bath towels simply don’t have the same ability to make you feel great, so splash out on some really good quality ones. Buy seconds or pick up a few bargains in the sales. Buy some good quality bath mats or try duckboards for an old-fashioned feel.
Also, be sure to check out the sales for luxurious accessories and bath products at bargain prices. Beautiful packaging and exotic fragrances all help to enhance the overall mood of the bathroom.
For a last finishing touch, add a little greenery. A plant is always a welcome addition to a bathroom and many sub-tropical plants thrive in the steamy atmosphere generated by bathing.
With just a few hours and minimal spending your bathroom will look like as though you spent hundreds of pounds! When it can be so quick and easy to transform your room, why spend more money than you need to on a complete new suite?
