Freshen Up Your Bathroom Décor


Does your bathroom look worn and tired? Updating your bathroom can make a massive impact to your property’s appearance and value. Here are just a few ways that you can freshen up the décor of this room.

Update old fixtures

Updating fixtures can be expensive, but could be necessary. Old fixtures may be starting to crack and discolour. They may no longer be as practical – compared to modern fixtures they may have low water pressure and a lack of ergonomics.

There are lots of stylish new fixture designs that could help to make your bathroom look more impressive. Start by updating your toilet – a modern multi-flush toilet can be great for using less water and providing quicker cistern refilling. Many of these toilets are operated by a button on the top instead of a handle or chain.

You can then consider your bathtub and shower. If you don’t have baths, you could consider ripping out your tub and replacing it with a walk-in shower. Meanwhile, if you prefer baths over showers you could buy a Helixbath acrylic bathtub. This freestanding bathtub design might help to make your baths more relaxing by giving you more space.

The last upgrade to consider is your sink. This should ideally match your toilet or bath. The tap may need upgrading if it’s old and mottled – consider a shiny new waterfall tap to make a dramatic impact.

Keep colours neutral

The bright colours of years gone by no longer look tasteful in a bathroom. Neutral colours such as grey, white and black are much more clean and stylish and could help to transform your bathroom. You can still have pops of colour, but should ideally stay away from colourful fixtures.



Add more light

A well-lit bathroom can feel cleaner and more peaceful. Bathrooms often have poky windows so consider using mirrors to help reflect the light in. Alternatively, you could consider building a bigger window or even putting a skylight on the roof. You can also wire in extra lights to brighten the room up. Track lighting is much cheaper to install than individual spot lighting – consider something sleek like a Forum Scorpius 4 Light Bar.

Clean up grouting

Unclean grouting between tiles can make a bathroom feel grubby. Consider cleaning this up or laying some new tiles if the grouting in your bathroom looks unclean. Keep tiles to one block colour if you can and stick to neutral tones for a modern feel.

Consider a heated towel rack
A nice contemporary feature that you could consider in your bathroom is a heated towel rack if you haven’t got one already. This are radiators that can also keep your towels hung up and dry. Heated towel racks come in all designs to fit all different kinds of bathroom. The Milano Pendle chrome towel rack is one of the more simple and effective designs.

  1. Wonderful bathroom decor ideas. I like the add more lighting idea a lot. I also like to add the fragrance inclusion in the bathroom. To clear the bad odor from the bathroom a natural humidifier is very effective.

Reunion At Museum Restaurant At Starling Mall

CLASSMATES REUNION... but not from my year.  i just tagged along with my sister who wanted my company that evening.  She was going to meet up with some of her classmates at The Starling mall.  I did not want to drive there, taking Grab is a much easier and practical choice, considering it was rush hour in the evening.  Furthermore, I am not familiar with the roads... both of us might panic on the federal highway.  LOL... 
Having someone to take us there is so stress free, we only have to pay RM20 for the ride.  :)  Our first time to Startling Mall and being made familiar by one of the bloggers, Phong Hong who used to post up her lunch meals taken from there.  We were supposed to meet up at 7pm but we reached there an hour earlier to "survey" the shops and ended up buying a "bit."  Blame it on my sister who always like to give positive comments most of the time!   The dinner was held at The Museum.... Originated from Ipoh actually and how there is a branch here in …

Caring And Sharing At Limestone, Regal Lodge, Ipoh

IMPROMPTU GATHERING.... Nothing was planned beforehand, it was only at the last minute that we received call to have lunch at Limestone Cafe, inside Regal Lodge.  It was my first time there to have set lunch.  The menu prices were reasonable, around RM15.90 for the main dish, RM3 for a bowl of soup and RM2 for ice cream.  Other than that, coffee, tea and soft drinks are free.  
We were there not so much for the food but for the ambiance... we practically had the whole cafe to ourselves during that lunch hour.  Only one or two tables were occupied and we spent more than two hours there since it was a Friday long hour lunch for my working colleagues.  After a few months absence from me, it was wonderful to catch up with my ex-colleagues again!  
I was super hungry by lunch time and I felt like eating almost anything in the menu. We ended up ordering one main dish each and then sharing them with one another so that we could taste a bit of this and that..... 
I felt like eating Aglio Oli…

Famous Wanton Mee At New Hoong Kee, Bandar Sri Damansara

BREAKFAST FEAST..  Best meal of the day is always my first meal because I know I am able to tuck in as much as my stomach can accept.  I eat a lot in the mornings and then slowly dwindle by the end of the day.  As the saying goes, eat like a king in the morning and like a pauper in the evenings.  This is what I normally do nowadays, not because I wanted to, but it is my own body system that tune me this way.  Though I deny I am old but the body says otherwise... LOL...

On this morning, we went to New Hoong Kee in Bandar Sri Damansara, my sibling said this is currently his favourite place.  And after trying, I know why.... the food we ordered, all turned out good and tasty, even the curry reminded me of my good old days!
Managed to catch the name otherwise I wouldn't be able to tell this story now...  My type of curry... I can go without the chicken... Just the other ingredients will do fine for me.. I like the way they cook this curry... Heard the BBQ pork is tasty too... melt in …
