Coming up with ways to redesign your bathroom on a budget perhaps isn’t as easy as other rooms in your home. Dependant on the level of work you wish to carry out, a serious amount of consideration may be needed as to how you can make those small but significant adjustments and achieve a brand-new look.
When it comes to giving your bathroom a makeover, there are many ways you can change up space without having to undergo a complete re-fit. Here are some really useful tips on how you can easily renovate your bathroom on a budget:
Choose panels instead of tiles
If you’re hoping to achieve a modern and contemporary style for your bathroom, then ditch the old-fashioned tiles and instead opt for panelled walls which can provide many more benefits. Although panels are usually more expensive than tiling, they are well worth the investment for the long-term future. They require very little cleaning or maintenance in terms of grouting, so you won’t have to spend time on these tedious jobs, which could otherwise be spent doing something worthwhile. As an example, stone resin panels could last you for decades due to their hard-wearing and durable qualities.
Let there be light!
Many bathrooms are fairly small in size; therefore, it’s important to think about how you can make space feel lighter and brighter. A light and neutral colour scheme can work wonders for giving the illusion of a larger space. It would also be a good idea to add some extra windows wherever possible to let in more natural light. However, if you don’t have the option to do this, you could add extra light fittings where possible. Using mirrors not only adds a touch of interest to an otherwise bare wall but also enhances the natural light, as the gleam bounces off the glass and floods the room.
Transform your shower into a wet room
If you’re looking to change the layout of your bathroom without making any drastic changes, one idea would be to turn your shower into a wet room, to give your bathroom that luxury hotel-style vibe. You may be wondering how you could achieve such a brave move if your bathroom is on the small side; however, many homeowners choose to do this to make the most of the awkward space.
Be sure to add shelving and custom shower trays and don’t forget to install a designer cast iron towel rail from the likes of warmrooms.co.uk to the exterior of the shower, to finish the overall look with the deluxe appeal.
Get rid of clutter
Getting rid of clutter costs absolutely nothing, but this small tactic could completely transform your bathroom. Instead of placing toiletries on shelves, install a set of cupboards on one of the walls to hide away clutter. If you don’t have any space to locate cupboards, encourage your family to keep toiletries in their own wash bags, rather than scattered across the surfaces.
