If your bathroom is looking a bit tired and worn, you may want to give it a refresh. But, with the festive season upon us, not many of us want to spend too much on home improvements this side of Christmas. Yet, if it’s your turn to entertain this year, having a visitor-friendly bathroom may be top of your list!
Fortunately, it’s possible to transform your space without breaking the bank. From simple accessories to quick DIY projects, these upgrades will give your bathroom a fresh and modern look. Here, The Bathroom Showroom shows you how to revamp your bathroom without spending a fortune, providing a temporary financial reprieve until the new year.
1. Swap Out and Update a Few of Your Bathroom Accessories
A quick win for an instant bathroom uplift is to replace those worn-out-looking bathroom accessories with new ones. Start by replacing your old towel racks, toothbrush holders, toilet roll and brush holders, and soap dispensers with new, sleek ones.
Accessorising is the key to adding a touch of style to any room, and the bathroom is no exception. The Bathroom Showroom offers plentiful stunning-looking accessories, to suit all decors from modern to traditional. These small changes can make a big difference in the overall look and feel of your bathroom, yet won’t break the bank this side of Christmas!
2. Give Your Bathroom Walls a Fresh Coat of Paint
One of the most effective and budget-friendly ways to upgrade your bathroom quickly is by giving the walls a fresh coat of paint. This job can even be done on one main feature wall if you're simply looking to add a focal feature.
Better still, choose a colour that complements your existing tiles and fixtures. Soft neutrals like light grey or beige can create a calming and timeless atmosphere, while bolder colours like navy blue or emerald green can add a pop of personality.
Don't forget to properly prepare the walls before painting to ensure a smooth and long-lasting finish.
3. Install New Bathroom Lighting Fixtures
At this time of the year, good lighting can make all the difference to the look and feel of a bathroom. What’s more, if you choose those warm lighting colours, you can instantly transform the ambience of this space, creating a thoroughly relaxing environment for all to enjoy.
Look at upgrading your outdated lighting fixtures with new ones that provide both functionality and style. Look for energy-efficient options with LED bulbs that not only save electricity but also last longer. You could install sconces on either side of the mirror for proper task lighting, or consider adding a decorative pendant light or chandelier as a statement piece.
4. Replace Old Bathroom Taps and Shower Heads
Another easy and affordable upgrade is replacing your old tap and shower heads. As regularly used fittings, overtime these can become dull and worn out, giving your bathroom a dated look.
Simple and straightforward, adding sparkling-looking new taps can immediately refresh both the bath and basin. And, swapping out a tired-looking shower head can boost the shower area, while offering a more pleasant showering experience for all members in the process!
Choose the best designs here that match the overall style of your bathroom. And where possible, opt for water-saving options to lower your utility bills and reduce water consumption.
5. Add Bathroom Shelving and Storage Solutions
Finally, if you’re struggling for space to store things already in the bathroom and need extra space over the festive season, consider adding simple storage solutions.
Limited storage space can make any bathroom feel cluttered and unorganised. Yet, by adding a few practical and stylish shelving units or bathroom cabinets, you can keep your essentials neatly organised.
With many affordable options in various shapes, sizes, and materials, The Bathroom Showroom stocks several storage solutions to suit all tastes and budgets.
Additionally, consider installing hooks or towel racks on the back of the bathroom door or unused wall space to maximise your storage potential.
