Bathroom Makeover Tips
It goes without saying that you want the bathroom in your home to be a peaceful, but also functional, room.
From long relaxing baths to quick manic showers and teeth brushing for all the children, the bathroom is a frequently-used room. Because of this, it can become worn and in need of an overhaul every few years. Read on for our top bathroom makeover tips…
Simply altering the colour of the walls can have a big impact on the feel of a room. Avoid dark colours, which could easily be watermarked (even condensation can do this). However, if you are keen to use a more striking colour, limit it to just one wall. Ensure you always choose water-resistant paint to ensure it stays looking good for longer.
Tiles are a great option too. Easy to keep clean and smart-looking, they can last for a very long time. Marble tiles can look stunning whatever the size or style of your bathroom. If grouting does look grubby after a year or two, it isn’t difficult to re-do.
This is the main area you need to spend time considering. Unlike the colour of walls and other aspects of the décor, this is not something you will envisage changing quickly. Read reviews from customers of the suites you are considering. Additionally, going for a white bathtub, toilet and sink is probably your best bet. Other colours are likely to become dated more quickly. Remember avocado bathroom suites?
A bath-shower is a great option for smaller bathrooms – the best of both worlds! Some days, a bath is a necessity. Other days, there simply isn’t time. Do make sure that your system can cope with the extra pressure required, particularly if you have more than one appliance requiring water at the same time. Check out Grundfos home booster sets from Complete Pump Supplies which will help boost pressure.
Storage is important in all bathrooms as we all want to avoid clutter. However, those of us who have smaller spaces to contend with, must prioritise space-saving solutions. Sink units with drawers or cupboard space beneath are a great option. Similarly, cupboards with mirrors look great and save space. Shower caddies can work well but be sure to choose ones that have holes in the base so excess water can escape. Mould and mildew can build up quickly otherwise.
Tiles can make or break a room. If the room looks clinical and white, opt for a bold colour or perhaps even monochrome patterned tiles. Always make sure that the tiles you choose are non-slip. Unless you’re experienced with laying tiles, get a fitter to do the work for you. If you’re forking out a serious amount for the tiles, you’ll feel let down if they’re uneven and your eyes will constantly be drawn to the mistakes.
There you have it, a range of tips you can use to successfully renovate your bathroom that will last long-term.
