You’re sure to spend some time every day in your bathroom, and on top of that, it’s a great room to relax in. We all know how fantastic it feels to have a nice, hot shower or a long, warm bath. So it’s important to make the room look and feel as good as possible, and that could mean making some improvements to how it is now.
Take a look around your bathroom and try to be as objective as you can – could your bathroom do with being improved? If you said yes, here are some great options for you to ensure you get started sooner rather than later. Read on to find out more.
Check The Pipes
Something that can cause a lot of problems in your bathroom is a problematic pipe or two, so it’s well worth checking them over to ensure they’re working as they’re meant to. It’s an excellent idea to start with having professionals carry out leak detection work, just to be on the safe side – if there is a leak, it’s better to fix it before you start upgrading your bathroom, as the pipes might be behind a wall.
Even if there isn’t a leak, investing in some new pipework can also be a great idea – it will last for longer and give you the water you want when you need it. It’s better to have this in place at the start, as you don’t want to have to go back and fix the issue down the line when your taps are barely giving you any water, and your bathroom is mouldy from the water behind the walls.
Clean The Tiles
It might sound like an obvious thing, but cleaning the tiles in your bathroom will make a big difference in how they look, in turn making the entire bathroom look so much better. We’re not suggesting that your tiles are dirty now, of course, and it’s highly likely that you’ll clean your bathroom on a regular basis, but when was the last time you really deep-cleaned those tiles?
It might be that you never have.
Deep cleaning the tiles is going to take a long time, so make sure you set enough time aside to do the job properly. You should also invest in a steam cleaner – or hire one if that makes more financial sense – so you can get into the grout between the tiles and scrub them clean. Use a microfiber cloth and research the best cleaning products to use; it might even be best to make your own, as these homemade formulas tend to be cheaper, safer, and just as effective as the ones full of chemicals you can get from the store.
Replace Small Items
It could be that you want to rip the entire bathroom out and start again with a new suite, floor, and walls – if you do, that’s entirely your choice, and as long as you budget well for it, it could be a brilliant thing to do.
However, it might be that this is too much in terms of cost and disruption, and unless your bathroom is quite old and looks it, there isn’t always a great need to replace everything. Instead, just replace the small items, like the toilet seat, toothbrush holder, shower curtain, and so on. Replacing these small items might not seem like a lot, but the overall effect will be impressive.
