Okay, so your bathroom isn’t in the best shape but now is not the time to start a renovation, so what do you do? Stick with us, we’ll show you that there’s still life in the old dog yet! By following a few simple steps, you can revive your tired bathroom and make it presentable for yuletide visitors. Ready? Here’s how to spruce up that old boy just in time for Saint Nick….
Clean everything within an inch of its life First, we want you to clean your bathroom like it’s never been cleaned before! Scrub all the white goods with a good stain removing cleaner. Then move on to the tiles, ceiling and floor – we know it’s not what you wanted to hear, but by giving your bathroom a deep clean, you will create a good base for what comes next. Let’s be honest, a clean and tidy bathroom will help you feel a boat load better about guests visiting in the first place.
Tip: always use caution when applying cleaning solution to any surface. Always read the label to ensure it won't damage the finish
Attack the grout Even after you’ve cleaned your bathroom entirely, you’ll likely find that the grout is still grubby and discoloured. Not to worry, a handy grout pen is easy to use and will whiten your grout back to its original state. This can take a few hours to achieve depending on the size of your bathroom and how much tile coverage you have, but let me tell you it will be worth the effort.
Tackle the chrome Over time chrome can develop a spotted appearance. You’re likely to see this on taps and showers, but it’s easy to solve. Either cut a lemon in half and rub down the affected chrome, or you can use white vinegar to remove the marks too. Make sure you give the chrome a good scrub (with something that won’t scratch it) and rinse well – your chrome will look almost new again.
Disguise cracked or broken tiles This can be a dead giveaway that your bathroom has seen better days. Rather than feeling embarrassed about the condition of your tiles, a quick paint job (or repair) will make you feel a whole lot better. If you have the missing piece, then all you have to do is reattach it using some tile adhesive. However, most of the time we don’t, so instead we recommend buying a small test pot of paint in the closest colour you can find and paint in where the missing piece should be. Remember to consider a small space for a grout line (if needed). This will disguise the crack or the broken, missing piece well enough for you to worry about bigger things on the day.
Tip: you might need to lightly sand the area you plan to paint under the tile to ensure a smooth and neat finish
Consider a paint job If you don’t have tiles and you just have a painted bathroom, then it’s probably a good idea to give your bathroom a fresh coat of paint. If you don’t want to spend a lot of money, you could see what paint you have left over from previous renovations. As long as it looks clean and fresh, you won’t have any regrets.
Make it look pretty By simply adding a few accessories you can transform a tired bathroom into a welcoming space. New fluffy towels, luxury hand soap and a nice candle will all help to make your bathroom a feel good place in your home. Swapping out bigger items like toilet roll holders and mirrors etc. can also help to make your room feel new and refreshed. Do whatever feels right to you, and of course what your pre-Christmas budget will allow.
There you have it! It’s really not hard to clean up your bathroom, granted it won’t look as snazzy as a full-scale renovation, but it will look respectable for visitors; it just takes a little time and elbow grease. Good luck and we hope that our tips get you through the festive season shame-free. Catch you all next week!
This week, I’m delighted to introduce you to Sylvia, our showroom sales advisor. Sylvia is one of our longest serving employees with 30 years under her belt! Sylvia has been an indispensable member of the sales team throughout the years, it’s hard to believe that she’s been with us for three decades. So this week, we decided it was about time to dedicate our blog to her.
Here it is, Sylvia’s very own Wholesale Domestic story.
First, I asked Sylvia what her job involves on a day-to-day basis, and this is what she said…
“I have worked at wholesale domestic for 30 years, so as you can imagine my daily duties have changed a lot over the years. Today my job is to sell our bathroom suites and bathroom goods to our customers which l love and have a real passion for. I take a lot of pride in what l do as every customer is special. l love working with all our work colleagues too, I think we make a great team together.”
Can you tell us anything interesting about the history of Wholesale Domestic?
“We have sold a lot of different products over the years since l have worked here. At one point we sold everything from three piece suites, to fireplaces, to bedroom furniture and even designer wallpaper.”
“I remember when l started in our Argyle Street shop, our current Finance & IT Director was only two years old, and l have watched him grow into a lovely young man who is now my boss!”
Can you share one of your personal highlights?
“At one point we sold furniture in Argyle street, and one day we had Marti Pellow from Wet Wet Wet in to buy a table chairs to play cards that night in his mum’s house. He had to take it that day, but that was no problem for us. He was gorgeous and so lovely and he gave us his autograph.” (She laughs)
What do you think of the changes at Wholesale Domestic?
“Over the years, I have watched Wholesale Domestic develop into a hugely popular family business. Last year I witnessed the opening of a new building in Montrose Avenue which was exciting to be part of. The business has come a long way over the years, we now have an e-commerce site and things like finance available which didn’t exist when I first started! Although there have been some changes over the years, the family have always managed to maintain their high standards and core values, which is why I believe they have been so successful in their industry.”
Sylvia, would you like to share anything about your personal life?
“I have been happily married for 44 years to my husband who I adore. We have three border terrier dogs who are my pride and joy, it just gets better & better over the years.”
Sylvia is beloved by our directors and by each of her colleagues. She always has a smile on her face and an amazing can-do attitude. She’s an integral part of our business and we would just like to offer our sincere thanks for her dedication and hard work over the 30 years she’s been with us. Thank you, Sylvia!
