5 Tips for making over your bathroom on a budget

There is no hiding the fact that a decent bathroom can make a house. It goes along with the kitchen. I've often grumbled about our dull bathroom with its dodgy black tiled walls and the teeny weeny kitchen but both rooms are going to cost quite a bit to have remodelled. Whilst a bathroom is the cheaper of the two to replace, sometimes just a little love and attention can help bring it back to life. So, here's 5 tips to help you change the look of your bathroom on a budget. 


1 - A good clean
Of course, I’m not saying that you don’t clean your bathrooms -although as far as I'm concerned, cleaning them has to be one of the worst household chores. By a good clean I mean grabbing the bleach and paying close attention to the sealant and this part of the bathroom suite can showcase it’s age and and can look grubby, even though it isn't. And if you aren't a fan of bleach or want to try an alternative approach there are some great home remedies online that can help clean these areas up. You will be surprised the difference it makes. If you struggle to get it bright and clean once more then getting rid of it and re-sealing will instantly make your bathroom suite look fresh and new.

2 - Some decoration ideas
There are lots of new decor ideas that you could incorporate into your bathroom. You could consider changing the walls. If you have existing tiles, then you could consider using a tile paint to paint over them or if you have some exposed plastered walls then you could give them a fresh coat of paint. I think mirrors and feature walls always work well in bathrooms. They can make the room feel quite different by just adding a few unique pieces to a wall.

3 - Change the flooring
You don’t always have to change everything but choosing one key feature to upgrade can make all the difference. Changing the flooring is a great way to do this and friendly on the purse strings as well. There are some great lino floor options that don’t cost a lot or you could consider something a little different. There are plenty of flooring ideas online to inspire you.

4 - Add a new light fitting
A fancy new light fitting could be just the ticket to make your bathroom feel brand new. If you are wanting to save yourself a few more pounds you could try hunting out different light options at local car boots or even on eBay. No one ever needs to know where you bought something; it just has to look good.

5 - New accessories in a different colour theme
It can just be as easy as a new towel set in a colour with matching accessories to make your bathroom feel all spruced up and nice. It can sometimes just be the simple little things that can make a big difference. Especially if you go for a bold colour that you haven’t showcased before.

I hope these tips inspire you to spruce up your bathroom on a budget. What tips would you add?
