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.
