Summer’s here and it’s time to get your bathroom into shape and looking fresh and inviting. Wondering where to start with redecorating? Here are a few ideas to help you on your way to a great looking bathroom with minimal spend and little effort.
Refresh Your Sealants
When we’re looking for wear and tear in our bathrooms, usually the first thing we notice is mouldy or peeling sealants around shower cubicles, sinks, and baths. First of all, you’ll have to remove the old sealant to make way for the new. This little detail makes such a difference.
Silicone sealant will need to be manually removed with a chisel or sharp knife before you get new materials in there. Choose good quality PVC strips from somewhere like Barrier Components to prolong the life of your sealant.
Revamp Your Tiles
If you want to make a low-effort but high-impact change in the design and look of your bathroom, experimenting with tiling is a great place to start. Tiling is great not only because it’s practical and easy to clean, but because there is so much variety in the type, style, shape and arrangement of tiling that it caters for all tastes.
Experiment with accent colours, borders or geometric arrangement for a touch of personality. With tiling, you can keep it as minimal or as exciting and colourful as you like.
Upgrade Your Storage
If you want to make your bathroom look a little less cluttered with cleaning products and cosmetics, the best way forward is to ensure your bathroom storage is up to scratch. If you have little space, invest in units that make use of vertical space and fit into available space.
Use the height in your bathroom – think about shelving for storing towels, and potentially get some bathroom plants like ferns or spider plants to improve air quality and add a fresh, organic touch.
In With New Fittings
The little details make such a difference; our shower can be improved on the cheap with an upgraded shower head; lime scale build-up can make a bathroom look unloved. Invest in multiple-piece sets for items like soap dispensers, toothbrush holders and soap dishes to avoid things looking mismatched.
Make sure your bathroom design is coherent and flows – use the same shades and keep to your colour scheme for a cohesive look. Stick with one shade of wood or metal for your upgraded fittings.
Fixing up your bathroom needn’t be taxing; with these simple tips you’ll be on your way to a fresh new bathroom look.
