If you have been spending more time at home lately and growing tired of your interior, you are not alone. As most of us have been working from home or staying in, it is completely normal to crave change, which often translates into the need to completely redo a room. If you feel like you are suddenly itching to turn your bathroom upside-down but know you don’t have the budget to make massive changes, there are budget-friendly tricks that will help you transform your bathroom without breaking the bank. Here are some of our favourites.
Add a heated towel rail
Who doesn’t love the feeling of a warm fluffy towel as you get out of a shower or bath? Adding a heating towel rail to your bathroom is not only a good way to heat the room and keep your towels warm, but it’s also an eye-catching feature that can give your bathroom a different feel.
There are many styles to choose from, whether you’re going for a more traditional look or a modern design, you are sure to find something that will suit your tastes. If you’re not sure what to go for, a ladder-style towel rail such as the ones from the popular brand Reina will go with everything.
Upgrade your taps
You may only think about taps as a practical feature, but when you’re looking for inexpensive ways to revamp a bathroom, they can have a major impact. You’d be surprised to see how many different styles and colours you can find nowadays.
From separate taps with an old-school design to mixed taps with sleek designs, you can choose a model that will complement your bathroom or go with something completely different to create contrast. While there is nothing wrong with a steel or chrome finish, choosing a bolder colour like copper or gold is an easy way to create an eye-catching feature in your bathroom.
Replace your bath panels
If you’re lucky enough to have a bathtub, replacing the bath panels around it could be another easy way to refresh your bathroom without spending a fortune. How different can bath panels be, you ask? While most people may have plain white panels by default, you can find a multitude of finishes and patterns which can give any tub a little je-ne-sais-quoi.
Why not try a wooden finish to make the bathtub the star of your bathroom? If you prefer sticking to white panels, you can still find more traditional or modern styles – a subtle change that can completely change how you see your bathtub.
Spruce up your lighting
There is nothing worse than going into your bathroom first thing in the morning to be blinded by some harsh, cold lighting. While you may want to hang on to one main fixture for practical reasons, additional light sources can really help create an atmosphere.
While many are fans of candles around the bath, you may want to opt for more permanent options such as side lamps or smaller wall lamps with warmer light bulbs that will feel cosy and inviting. Don’t hesitate to get multiple smaller light sources so you can mix and match depending on the time of the day and how you feel!
