Six ways to revamp your bathroom on a small budget


Are you unhappy with the look and feel of your bathroom? Here’s our top six tips to transform a tired, dated bathroom into a stylish den of Zen.

It can be easy to spend a small fortune revamping your bathroom, especially if you want to create a luxury space to relax and rejuvenate. The good news is that you don’t need a massive budget to create that ultra-luxe space you’ve been dreaming of. Your bathroom should be a haven where you can unwind after a long day of work and enjoy the serenity of a balanced space. You might be dreaming of a good-looking relaxation space where you can unwind in a bubble bath with a glass of champagne. This dream can become a reality, and for less than you think!

Six inexpensive solutions for a new bathroom look:

1. A fresh coat of paint

It’s surprising how much a fresh coat of paint on your bathroom walls or ceiling can revolutionise your space. A careful paint selection will allow you to retain your current colour coordination with the towels but still liven up a space. Alternatively, you can budget a bit more and choose a whole new colour scheme, replacing the towels to completely change the look of your bathroom.

2. Choose a new shower head

A new shower head is a great solution – it is inexpensive, simple and easy to replace! You can pick and choose a shower head that will give a totally different look and feel to your bathroom. Showers will never be the same; instead, they’ll be a wonderful relaxation experience! It’s not always easy choosing the right shower head, so visiting a showroom and being able to see these products in action is always the best way to scout out the latest technology, bathroom trends and find a fixture that is perfect for your family and space.

3. Update your taps

There are a great variety of taps and accessories that will make your bathroom really stand out! From matt black to shiny brass to the timeless stainless steel, there is a tap for every look and home. It is always good to use a licensed professional to replace your taps, as plumbing can often be the most complicated aspect of your home’s functions, and water damage can cost even more to fix.

4. Replace damaged mirrors

Nothing makes your bathroom look worse than a damaged mirror. Trade in your old mirror for something with extra storage – this will help you de-clutter your vanity counter and create that minimalist, luxury look in your bathroom.

5. Switch the toilet seat

A faded, cracked or marked toilet seat is not what you want to see when doing your business! Out with the old, in with the new, replace your toilet seat for one of the stylish, comfortable and durable options that Hardware & General has to offer.

6. Re-energize with new rugs or shower curtains

Rugs and shower curtains play a huge part in creating the ambience of your room. Freshen up a tired looking room with new patterns and colours – a brightly coloured rug will invigorate a neutral scheme. Pastels are perfect for a more subdued, elegant look that will keep the space light and airy.
