There’s nothing better than a relaxing soak in the tub or an invigorating shower. Washing away your troubles in your balmy sanctum as you read the latest bestselling crime novel or sing along tunelessly to the radio is one of life’s little pleasures. But if your bathroom closely resembles Guantanamo Bay’s communal wash area, it’s hardly surprising you’d look to jump in and break out as quickly as possible. Put simply, it’s doubtful you’d feel at ease in a dank and dingy room with no discernible trace of personality or tranquillity.
Yep, it’s time your bathroom had a revamp. However, as you take a quick peek in your money pot, it’s clear to see that funds are running dangerously low. Fear not, dear decorator, there are some simple ways to inject a bit of life and character into your bathroom without blowing your meagre budget …
One of the easiest ways to upgrade your bathroom is by investing in a few well thought out accessories. From bath mats to cushion your feet as you leave the shower, new towels, a toilet roll holder and even a new bamboo blind, you’ll be amazed at how simple it is to improve your space.
Attempting to relax in a gloomy bathroom is sure to end in tears – which is why you should spend a bit of cash improving the lighting. It goes without saying that waterproof fittings should be used to prevent you getting more of a shock than you bargained for as you look in the mirror each morning.
What better way to give your bathroom a decidedly spa-like feel than with a fancy splash back? Nowadays, folk are shunning the traditional tile route by installing waterproof boards that are ideal for transforming the vibe of a bathroom as quick as a flash.
To really enjoy a shower, you need more than water dribbling on your head like a child slavering through a straw. Instead, you should be prepared to loosen the purse strings and install a high-pressure shower system that feels like you’re bathing under a rather toasty Niagara Falls.
If your bathroom is pokier than the tiniest pokey thing, it’s vital that you have plenty of storage space to house your bathing essentials. For women especially, there are tons of trinkets that are perfect for keeping oils and potions, alongside larger storage solutions for towels and much else.
