Simple Ways to Upgrade Your Bathroom
When redesigning a bathroom it is important to save money in the right places while managing to achieve an upgraded space. It’s always a good idea to leave a large chunk of the budget for the bathroom suite or new jtspas shower. Thankfully there are lots of other areas where you can make good savings, allowing you to buy the best your budget can allow for the most important items. Here are ten simple upgrades you can do that will transform your bathroom for the better.
Create a mirror wall. A large mirror may sound expensive but it is money that is worth spending. Pick a wall space, ideally above the sink unit and install a large mirror that will take up most of the wall, if not all. Choose an LED mirror if you can stretch to it, the built in lights are useful and they help to create a peaceful ambiance for night time bathing. The mirror will improve the lighting in the room, make it easier to clean and acts as an instant upgrade – you don’t even need to replace the bathroom suite for this to look good!
Swap the old shower curtain for a screen or an enclosure. Shower curtains instantly cheapen the bathroom. They’re also difficult to keep spotlessly clean and attract germs, grime and mildew. Replace the curtain with a quality screen as it will improve the overall look of the room and you’ll find they are much easier to keep clean.
Work out ways to increase the amount of storage space you have available. If you have a very tight budget you could always paint up some old drawers or bed side cabinets to use in the bathroom. If you can stretch to it we recommend installing some cabinets and a surface to help keep the space tidy and organised. A tidy bathroom is always more appealing than a messy one. Find areas that are being wasted, such as behind the toilet or below the sink and convert these areas into storage zones.
Buy new towels and a towel rail. Always have your best bath towels on display and leave the older ones in the airing cupboard. Brand new towels add instant luxury to the bathroom and they’re always appreciated by the users.
Replace your shower head for a larger one. Everyone is going crazy for oversized shower heads. They come in many different styles and they can be relatively easy to replace. Monsoon rain showers are in high demand at the moment and are definitely the type of upgrade that buyers would like to see in the home.
These five tips will help you to transform your bathroom into a space where you can relax at the end of a long day. They don’t have to be completed at once, work slowly though the list and the end result will be amazing.
