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.

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL...
