If you’re planning a bathroom refit this summer but want to avoid spending a significant amount this summer, think about how you can achieve a high-impact new look while utilising your existing features.
Baths, basins and toilets and the expensive items when it comes to bathrooms – not just in terms of buying new fixtures but in terms of the cost of getting professionals in to deal with the plumbing – so if you can re-use these items, do so. It is surprising how a fresh lick of paint or some new tiling – both of which are relatively cheap – can revitalise a tired bathroom. For a great look on a budget, look to a specialist tile retailer for brightly coloured tiles which you can use to make a statement with just one wall. You’ll need to buy fewer tiles and by complementing the flash of colour with neutral shades, you’ll have a bright and interesting space which isn’t overpowering. What’s more, with guidance such as this around, you can do the tiling yourself.
If you don’t have much space available to you then these tips from interior designer Nina Campbell will help you make the most of what you have; installing mirrors gives the impression of having extra space and two levels of lighting is a good idea for setting different moods for different times of the day.
