Recycle Old Furniture

If you have a kitchen cabinet that has seen better days and is now in the garage, why not restore it and add some storage space in the bathroom? It might need a coat of paint, but an old cabinet can blend nicely in a bathroom, while also giving you that much needed space for bath towels and other things. If you don’t have any old furniture, keep your eyes on the classified section and you might find the ideal item, even if it does need a coat of paint.

Fixtures And Fittings

Often referred to as the icing on the cake, the taps, toilet roll holder and towel racks can all be changed, which will certainly make the room more appealing. Online suppliers would also have some discount bathroom suites, which would enable you to add a new suite to the shopping list without breaking the bank. Changing the splashbacks is another great way to brighten up a dull bathroom, and with new mirrors, the look is complete. The best way to source a supplier is an online search, which will bring up a list of local building supplies companies and you can compare quality and prices before finally making a decision.

Re-Grout The Tiling

If the bathroom tiles are in good order, why not re-grout them? This will certainly make a difference and there are quite a few colours to choose from, so you could have a grout that contrasts well with the tiles. If you are a DIY enthusiast, re-grouting the tiles is an easy job, otherwise your local handyman would be only too happy to help. A couple of hours should see the job done and for what it costs, this will make quite a difference to your bathroom ambience.

Consider Changing The Lighting

Light has a major effect on the ambience of any room, especially the bathroom, and with some stylish LED wall lights on either side of the vanity and some floor level lighting, you can make the room look warmer and more inviting. Avoid using bright light in the bathroom and perhaps a splash of color in either blue or yellow would make the room look more appealing and natural. A soft pendant light would make ideal task lighting above the vanity unit and if you would like the Hollywood look, you can stick some LED strips around the vanity mirror. There are websites you can check for more bathroom lighting ideas.

Replace the Shower Screens

Shower screens are major features in any bathroom, so if your shower screens have seen better days, why not replace them? There are stylish yet affordable shower screens available from online suppliers, and the product comes with full fitting instructions and all the extras you will need for installation.

Revamping the bathroom doesn’t have to break the bank and with your DIY skills and trade prices, transforming your bathroom can be achieved on a reasonable budget.
