While we regularly update the décor in our living rooms and bedrooms, our bathroom décor is often neglected - which is a shame as our bathrooms are usually the place in which we begin and end each day. Many people believe that upscaling a bathroom will clean out their bank accounts and drain away all their free time, but this is, thankfully, not the case - in fact, it’s easier and cheaper than you think.
Off the wall ideas
The easiest way to give your bathroom a new lease of life is to overhaul your walls. Try adding a signature wall to an otherwise white bathroom with a brightly patterned wallpaper for a splash of colour. You may think that wallpaper is impractical in a bathroom, but this can actually be a really great option for a wall which isn’t in contact with a bath, shower or sink. An eye-catching design can completely transform even the smallest of bathrooms and, for added oomph, try adding a matching bathroom set and accessories to create a theme. For extra impact, try a wallpaper with a bold floral design or, maybe a quirky raw brick pattern for an unusual look which is sure to become a talking point with your guests. If you’re still not convinced by the idea of wallpaper for a bathroom, large format tiles offer a more workable solution and are now a lot more affordable due to advanced manufacturing processes.
Tapping into bathroom accessories
If you can’t stretch to a new bathroom suite, you can fake it by replacing taps and fittings with fancy new ones - your suite will look brand new but don’t forget to clean up or replace any tired grouting which might spoil the effect. If, however, you do have your heart set on a new suite, try checking out auction sites like eBay for unusual and vintage pieces rather than splashing out on a suite from a regular home store.
Finally, if your bathroom floor needs a little TLC, try replacing your existing flooring with gloss floor tiles to either match or contrast with your signature wall. Tiled floors are elegant, practical and super-easy to clean as well as being extremely durable.
When looking to renew your bathroom décor, you don’t have to limit yourself to white - a splash of colour or a more dramatic full colour theme can give you a bathroom worthy of a lifestyle magazine. Add in some matching bathroom accessories for a touch of glamour and you are all set!
