The bathroom ranks as one of the most used rooms in your home. It’s also one of the rooms we are most conscious of our guests visiting so keeping it modern, fresh and up to date is important, There are some simple and inexpensive ways to update your bathroom and keep you feeling flush.
Brush Up On Your Painting
When your existing vanity cabinet offers everything you need in terms of storage and design but is looking a little tired, renew the look with a fresh coat of paint or stain. Sand the gloss or stain off a previously painted cabinet and smooth out any damage with filler, and apply a coat of primer before finishing with a coat of colour.
Tap it out
New taps can be all it takes to brighten up basin and tart up your tub. There are plenty of styles and finishes so do your research before you buy. Grab some inspiration from Tap Warehouse for basin taps or for ways to banish the bathtub blues.
Sit Back and Relax
An easy fix is a change to the toilet seat. Install one with a splash of colour or one that offers a subtle pastel look to a white suite for a more sedate look. Coordinate this with matching accessories such as towel bars and a toilet paper holder.
Light Up Your Life
See your bathroom in a new light if you replace a dated light fixture for something that’s modern and eye catching. Perhaps add some coloured panes or chandelier effects fixings to draw the eye.
Stay On Top Of Things
If the sink unit it solid, try replacing it as it refreshes the bathroom’s look overall. To make this option far more wallet friendly. consider preformed laminate. There are often places who sell remnants of granite or marble to achieve a luxury look for less.

Raise the Curtain

Perhaps you could pamper yourself by giving the shower a spa feel with a large rain style shower head or waterfall. These will often thread straight onto any existing fixtures and there is a wide choice available at most large home centres.
A Night On The Tiles
