Along with the kitchen, the bathroom is one of the most important rooms in the house. If it looks tired and dated you could lose money when you want to sell.
Quite apart from that, it’s lovely to go into a well designed and decorated bathroom every morning when it’s shower time so you may feel it’s time to do some bathroom updates.
New Bathroom Suite
We’re starting off with the most expensive change you can make and that’s having a brand new bathroom installed, or indeed, installing one yourself.
If you’re handy with tools and know about plumbing you can remove the old bathroom and install a new suite yourself. There’s no doubt that fitting it yourself can save money, but you need to be confident in your abilities and make sure nothing gets overlooked.
There can be many aspects to installing a new bathroom that you wouldn’t even think of. For example, you may need to buy extras that aren’t always included with the new shower; shower trays and door seals may need to be bought separately.
You can buy a range of door seals, including curved shower door seals, from Byretech.
If completely changing your bathroom isn’t in the budget right now, there are still lots of ways to update it.
Changing the bath mat, shower curtain and towels can make a big difference to the look and feel of your bathroom.
If you choose a neutral paint on the walls, you could change your accessories with the change of each season.
As mentioned, repainting is an excellent way of refreshing a room. Don’t only think about painting the walls, though, the tiles can be repainted as well.
Removing and replacing tiles can be a huge job, not to mention, an expensive one. You can create a whole new look in your bathroom by painting the tiles.
Be sure to buy the correct paint for the job in hand. The wall paint needs to be made especially for bathrooms so it can withstand the steam and moisture that is inevitable in the bathroom.
Lighting is very important in all rooms of our house, but it can be even more important in the bathroom because it’s usually one of the smallest rooms in the house.
However, you don’t want a bright glaring light that’s going to blind you every time you go in there.
Strip lights are usually the first choice for bathrooms, but there are so many lovely light fittings out there you’ll be spoilt for choice.
Have fun shopping around and pick a fitting that will also double as a feature of the room.
There are so many options for bathroom floors you may have trouble deciding between them. Your budget could have a big impact on your choice of flooring; hardwood floors are gorgeous but can be pricey. Laminate is a cheaper option and can usually be laid over the existing flooring.
Vinyl can be cheaper still and with so many different patterns available you could have any look you wanted.
