The bathroom is one of the most private rooms in the house, and it should also be the most comfortable. It’s no surprise that people spend so much time and money on their bathroom before any other part of their home. However, if you’re not happy with your bathroom, and you’re not entirely sure why, you might not need a full makeover. Sometimes just a small change can make a big impact on your bathroom without having a big impact on your wallet.
Here are a few low cost, high impact ideas to upgrade your bathroom:
Bathroom Cabinet or Vanity Unit
If you don’t already have one, this is probably the first thing you should think about upgrading your bathroom with. A wall hung cabinet or vanity unit will allow you to hide away a lot of the clutter that takes up space in your bathroom and can make it look messy, no matter how tidy you try to keep it. It also adds an extra design element that you can customise to help you shape the way your bathroom is perceived. Whether you choose mirrored doors or traditional wood veneer can say a lot about your bathroom and your style.
If you do already have a bathroom cabinet, that doesn’t mean you can’t still upgrade to something more fitting. Perhaps you don’t like the finish yours has, or you want to add mirrors or lights to it. Whatever you’re unhappy with, this small change makes a huge impact on your bathroom.
Every bathroom needs a mirror to help you freshen up in the morning, but what you do with this mirror can change the way you feel about your bathroom. One of the simplest mirror upgrades is to start using an LED-lit bathroom mirror, which not only looks fantastic, but adds extra light to your bathroom in a whole range of ways. The LED lighting helps make your bathroom brighter, and also helps you get a brighter look when you’re using the mirror itself, a much needed upgrade to your happiness.
LED mirrors are not as expensive as you might think, and we have a great range in stock. Take a look at our LED bathroom mirrors and choose the one that fits your bathroom the best for a low cost, high impact bathroom upgrade.
New Taps & Fittings
The big changes, like a new shower, a new bath and a new sink seem like they’d make the biggest difference, but what a lot of people fail to realise is that really it’s the little things that have the biggest effect on how your bathroom furniture is perceived. Why replace your whole bath when you could get the same effect just by choosing new taps, and there are plenty of taps to choose from. With all the different modern designs, there’s no need to replace bathroom furniture when you can just make a little change like this.
In a similar way, changing light fittings, door and cabinet handles and shower heads can make a huge difference to your bathroom, without changing the furniture itself. Consider replacing the accessories and extras on your bathroom furniture before you replace the whole thing.
Art & Books
Make your bathroom more high brow by adding a few books or art pieces around the place. Even in a small washroom, a bookshelf on the back wall adds an extra element of style to the room, and of course offers you some bathroom reading if you need it. Similarly, an art print or framed photo is a great way to add extra personality to your bathroom, especially if you have a budding photographer or artist in the house to make it truly your own.
These are just a few of the changes you can make to your bathroom right now without breaking the bank. Of course, if you need more ideas, or help with any of these, then please do call us on 01524 841087 and we’ll happily help you out.
