It’s often one of the rooms in the house that gets neglected in terms of makeovers and updates, but often one of the rooms that needs it most. Bathrooms get used and abused by the whole family and can be costly when they need remodelling or revamping. However there are quite a few quick fixes and inexpensive updates you can make to the room to ensure it stays fresh and inviting. How about these ideas to get you going:
Add some Fresh Towels
There are some great deals around, particularly when the sales are on and shops like Dunelm and John Lewis sell great towel bundles. Choose ones with lots of fresh, bright colours and your bathroom will be instantly transformed.
Clear away the Clutter
I know I say it every time but you really will make a huge difference to any room in your home if you declutter and get some decent, practical storage. Try and put all your essential bathroom toiletries in a cabinet or hanging tidy. If you can’t do that invest in a small trolley cabinet in which to hide all your necessaries or some pretty storage boxes from a supermarket would also do the trick.
Change your Shower Curtain
They get old and dirty and sometimes now matter how many times you wash them they just don’t look the same again. Invest in a new shower curtain and your room will be reborn! It’s a great way to really change the look and style of your room too. And a great inexpensive quick makeover solution.
Many people say that taps are the one thing you should spend your money on when you’re designing your bathroom. Taps for the bath and the sink do not come cheap but they are worth investing in as they can really set the tone for the room. Choose something that will last and continue looking great no matter how much use they get. Companies like BPM Bathrooms & Kitchens London do a fabulous contemporary range, but take a look around on the internet and see what you can source.
Re-paint in a Weekend
It may seem like a daunting task but repainting the bathroom really doesn’t take that long. I gave our own bathroom a quick paint update last year and it was done in a few hours. Choose neutral colours, or compliment the colour of your tiles. Just don’t forget to use a paint suitable for bathrooms and kitchens.
Add a few new Accessories
A few well thought out accessories will make all the difference once you’ve cleared away the clutter. I always think it’s a great place to hang family photos so you can spend hours looking at them when you’re in the bath! I wrote a post last year about creating a modern coastal theme in your home and many of these ideas and products work well in a bathroom.
Quick fixes to any room in the house are my ideal. They don’t take long, you get to do a fair bit of shopping and you don’t have spend a fortune on the revamp. Updating a bathroom is one of my favourite revamps, mostly because of the towels. I am strong believer you can never have too many (a bit like handbags!)
