5 Easy Ways To Update Your Bathroom On A Budget

Modern bathrooms are stylish, luxurious and calming havens where you can retreat from the mayhem of family life. Long gone are the avocado suites from days gone by, current bathroom trends dictate white suites for every home. You deserve an oasis of calm in your home where you can soak in the bath, read a book and wash away the stresses of the day. 

It's not cheap to decorate a bathroom, the costs of new tiles, suites and accessories can soon add up. Plus you'll probably want to pay a plumber and tiler to carry out the work. If you don't have the money for a complete overhaul, there are easy ways to update your bathroom on a budget. Here are a few ideas on how to make your bathroom feel new again:

1. Update your fittings
If you can't afford to change the big things, changing the little things will do. Take a look around your bathroom and pick out bits you can afford to change. A new mirror could leave the place feeling and looking like new. Bigger mirrors make spaces seem larger, and circular mirrors are quite in-keeping with the scandi trend. You could treat yourself to some new taps or a modern showerhead to make your bathroom feel more luxurious. 

2. Change the paint colour
You might not have the money to tile the whole room, but you could update the look by switching the paint colour. A fresh lick of paint always helps to brighten a room, even if you stick with the same colour. Dark walls are very on trend, so consider a navy, charcoal grey or dark green tone to modernise your bathroom. 

3. Maximise your space
Take a look around your bathroom and pick out ways you could improve your use of the space. As an example, I took down the bulky shower screen in my bathroom and replaced it with a modern folding screen which can be tidied away. It makes the bathroom feel much bigger when it's tidied away and has made all the difference to the space. I also switched the standard sink for a sink cabinet with plenty of storage underneath, which has allowed for better use of the room. 

4. Reorganise
Is your bath filled with plastic bath toys and rubber ducks? Are you bathroom shelves piled high with half-empty shampoo bottles and ancient bottles of bubble bath? If so, it might be time to reorganise. Be strict, anything that doesn't get used can go. Get rid of all the junk, there's no point hoarding unnecessary items. Once you've worked out what you need to keep, see if there's a better way of storing it all. Pinterest is great for bathroom storage inspiration.

5. Invest in some new accessories
You can add a new colour scheme or theme to the room by picking out some new accessories. It doesn't have to cost much, but it might help to lift the room. New towels, a matching bath mat, perhaps some other accessories in the same colour - this could be all you need to freshen up the room. It's also a great way of trying out new colour schemes without committing to anything too drastic.
