Most of us live on limited funds, so cannot do everything we would like to when it comes to our house. As a result, some rooms get a bit neglected. That is particularly true when it comes to the family bathroom. Many homeowners assume that installing a new bathroom suite or having the room retiled will cost a lot of money. As a result, they tend to put off doing the work.
Redecorating a bathroom is not always expensive.
However, the reality is that redecorating or revamping a bathroom is no longer expensive. Firms like Better Bathrooms sell everything you need at an affordable price. In addition, many companies now offer you the chance to spread the payments.
You can make a big difference without having to spend a lot of money. There is a lot that you can do to make what you already have look a lot better. Here are a few examples of low-cost, easy to do projects that you can potentially do even if you are on a tight budget.
An easy option when you need new flooring
Tile floors are nice in a bathroom, but you have to know what you are doing to be able to lay one. A far cheaper and easier option is to lay a laminate floor instead. You just need to be sure to buy the type that is designed for use in a damp environment. It costs a bit more, but will not go mouldy.
Freshen up your tiles
If your wall tiles are looking a little tired, try steam cleaning them. It does not take long to do but makes a huge difference to how fresh your tiles look, especially if you take the time to buff them up with a towel as you go. Doing this gets rid of any residue dirt that has been loosened by the steam.
Restore your grout
When you do this, it is a good idea to have some spare grout on hand. Sometimes the steam will dislodge some, so you want to be able to replace it.
If your grout is looking a bit tired you can easily restore it. This article shows you how to do it the easy way. It is a job that can potentially be done in a morning, but to get the best results you really need to leave the restorer product on overnight. You need to bear this in mind when you schedule this particular job because you will not be able to create steam in your bathroom while the product dries.
Adding some storage and de-cluttering will also make a big difference to how good your bathroom looks. You do not have to spend much to do this. Even adding a towel rail and some baskets will make a huge difference to how tidy and, therefore, clean your bathroom looks.
Hang a mirror
Adding a big mirror is another quick and easy way to freshen up your bathroom. It will look bigger, brighter and, therefore, airier.
As you can see none of the ideas above are expensive or difficult to implement. If money is very limited you can do one project at a time.
