Our bathrooms are the most important, and the most used room of the home, so looking at the same bathroom every day can become monotonous. We know a full bathroom renovation can be costly, however, don’t stress, there are several ways to spruce up your bathroom without having to re-do it all, thus saving a fortune! Read on for some helpful ways you can spruce up your bathroom on a budget.
The cheapest and quickest fix to any bathroom makeover is with the addition of potted plants, whether artificial or real. An artificial trending fan favourite is the Fejka, with celebs like Stacey Solomon showing us how she incorporates the Fejka into various rooms in her home in many different ways. For your bathroom, we suggest placing several artificial hanging styles on a bathroom shelf or window ledge, bringing a feeling of sanctuary and relaxation.
Or you can bring the outdoors in with the addition of real houseplants. Not only are they super chic, but also good for our health in many ways. Plants have the power to reduce our stress levels but can also improve the air quality – certainly creating your own true oasis. A large floor standing potted plant can create an eye-catching feature in your bathroom and really transform the space.
2. Adding a New Mirror
Mirrors are an excellent addition to your bathroom, with their power to elongate space and light. Firstly, when choosing your mirror consider the size of the wall you want to cover, and then consider the shape you would prefer. A circular favourite of ours is the Typhon, coming in at 600mm, or a larger option is the Annona, at 800mm. Both come with LED lights, demister functionality and touch screen technology.
However, if you want to treat yourself to a fancier mirror, you can go for a Bluetooth option. Smart technology has infiltrated our entire life, so why not embrace it in your bathroom as well. The Dionysus Bluetooth Mirror is our go-to. At 1000mm x 800mm it’s large enough to fit an entire wall! Simply sync it up to your device and get that shower hits playlist on. Instant feel-good!
3. Soft Closing Toilet Seat
A must-have bathroom element is the soft closing toilet seat. When first introduced to the market, they were a bit pricier, however nowadays they are extremely affordable as well as easy to install. The main benefit of a soft closing toilet seat is that they are less ‘clattery’ but are also excellent for stopping little fingers getting trapped underneath. They also add to the overall ambience of your bathroom as they eliminate the noise of a slamming lid.
4. Update Storage Solutions
When updating your bathroom consider your current storage options and how you can make improvements. The obvious options would be units; introducing a side cabinet, or drawer unit can be a great way to declutter your space and keep your bathroom neat and organised. If you don’t have the space to add a full unit however, there are smaller alternatives. Adding a wall-hung towel shelf will keep the space open whilst also allowing for a fair amount of storage, and the same goes for a floating shelf , perfect for displaying items in an orderly fashion on the wall – our Napoli range comes in a plethora of different colours so there will be one to suit every bathroom. Robe hooks are also an excellent option for hanging dressing gowns or even towels behind the bathroom door.
