Does your bathroom need a new lease of life, but you haven’t got the cash to splash out on a complete new bathroom suite? Then make sure to read these simple bathroom ideas to help you create a fresh, new look.
Install a heated towel rail
If you have an old radiator that’s past its best then replace it with a heated towel rail, which also provides a more stylish solution for keeping your towels nice and warm, as well as providing a background heat to the bathroom too. Heated towel rails are available in a variety of sizes to suit any space as well as white, chrome and even anthracite finishes.
Make a pretty peg rail
Create a wooden peg rail and use pretty doorknobs to keep lightweight dressing robes and towels neatly stored away, this is also perfect for enhancing a country-style bathroom too.
Add new towels and accessories
Just by updating old towels and accessories your bathroom can easily be transformed. If your bathroom is lacking colour why not choose some bright towels and a bath mat to bring the room to life? New accessories such as a soap dish, toilet roll holder and towel rail provide an easy bathroom update too.
Create a relaxed spa-style look
If you want to achieve that relaxed, spa-style look then consider installing a freestanding bath, which doesn’t have to cost the earth. You could also add some aromatic candles and soft fluffy towels to the bathroom, as well as some new pretty toiletries to add a touch of luxury. Also, paint the walls a calming neutral colour or even add some decorative wallpaper to create a feature wall.
Fit a new mirror
A new mirror can work wonders in your bathroom, why not choose one with lights so you can see what you’re doing when applying your make-up or shaving. If you don’t have the space for a large mirror fit an extendable mirror instead, which also doubles up as magnifying mirror.
Add a smart new laundry basket
A smart new laundry basket provides you with somewhere to keep towels and clothes until they are ready to be washed, instead of leaving them on the floor. This will leave your bathroom looking much neater too.
