Refreshing a tired bathroom does not require a complete renovation. A few simple updates can transformation an unsightly washroom into your own, personal sanctuary! I’ve put together four creative tips to help you breathe a new lease of life into your home bathroom:
Switch up your tiles
Using a feature border to break up tiles can add an interesting design element. Border & mosaic tiles are bang on trend this year, and the variety of designs available can really set the tone for your bathroom. For example, opting for a mirror finish border will add a touch of glamour, whilst a contrasting feature tile adds a bold colour pop! If new tiles aren’t in your budget, you can use an eco-friendly etcher, safe for home use, to remove any excess grime from tile surfaces and grout lines to give your bathroom back its sparkle.
A new colour scheme
A new colour palette can give your bathroom a whole new look! A lick of paint is the best way to refresh and brighten up any room in your house and if can give your bathroom a totally different aesthetic, if you have a classic white suit. Neutral colours are a versatile and clean looking option and when paired with coordinating accessories, the simplicity can have a striking effect on the room. Monochrome is another key bathroom trend, contrasting white fixtures with dark walls and floor can look effective if you dare to be bold!
Upcycling is a great way to spruce up a bathroom on a budget and can give you a unique, quirky finish, that perfectly represents your style. Remodelling an old mirror, by mounting it on a wood frame or, creating a mosaic style border with broken mirror shards, can give a rustic, cosy atmosphere. Painting wooden cabinets in heritage colours is another great way to give a rustic, yet fresh feel to your bathroom. If you are going for a contemporary look, opt for metallic fixtures and try lining countertops with marble contact paper for an uber chic finish.
A bit of a fixer-upper
Something as simple as updating your old fixtures, such as basin taps, lighting & towel racks can leave your bathroom looking as good as new. Rose gold coloured taps are a stylish alternative to the classic chrome finish and can give your bathroom that modern ‘Pinterest-worthy’ aesthetic. Modernising light fixtures is another easy way to keep your bathroom looking on trend, choose crystal embellished pendant lights to make a statement, or, install simple spotlights for a bright finish. If you’re DIY friendly, then making your own towel rack is a great personal challenge that can add a unique finish. For example, layering old pipes to form towel storage can give your bathroom an industrial vibe.
