Fixing Up Your Bathroom on a Budget

Quick ideas for fixing up your bathroom

Monday 30th September 2019

Renovating your bathroom might have been on your to-do list for a while, but life can often get in the way of those home DIY projects meant to spruce up our living spaces. If you’re looking for quick decorating ideas, from brand new fittings to stylish accessories and decluttering advice, here are our quick ideas for fixing up bathrooms on a budget.

Think About New Fittings

A bathroom renovation doesn’t necessarily mean a complete overhaul. Investing in tasteful new shower heads or taps, in a modern contemporary style, is a quick way to bring in a fresh feel.

Modern chrome shower heads look great, but they’re also the perfect way to quickly improve your showering experience on a budget, with different sprays for powerful, invigorating or soothing washes.

From striking traditional designs to contemporary minimalism, matching your shower heads with new taps is the perfect way to finish off your bathroom’s brand new look. Take a look at our recommendations for matching different styles here.


Channel a Little Feng Shui

If you’re on a tight budget, start by thinking about whether there’s simply too much going on in your bathroom. It happens sometimes, with mess and clutter slowly creeping up and affecting a room’s energy in front of our eyes.

Have you thought about feng shui? It’s the ancient Japanese practice of creating harmonious surroundings. When applied to your bathroom, it means arranging furniture and storing items in a well-balanced and agreeable manner.

A quick spring clean is the easiest and cheapest way to fix up your bathroom. After you’ve finished, new positive energy will spread to the rest of the house and improve your home’s overall harmony.

Get Organised with Simple Storage

Improved storage goes hand-in-hand with feng shui and will make you feel much better about your bathroom, even if you don’t want to spend vast amounts.

From cabinets to baskets and storage benches, find the storage solution that suits your bathroom — whether the room is small, medium, large or is an en-suite.

Introduce A Splash of Colour

Experimenting with new colours is one way to bring a fresh design feature into your bathroom without breaking the bank. Best of all, you can paint a wall — or two — in half a day!

Think whether you could paint one wall, perhaps in a nice subtle and gentle hue, which will subtly overhaul your bathroom and turn it into a room you can easily relax and pamper yourself in.

Is It Time to Accessorise?

It’s easy to overlook parts of the bathroom which could make a huge difference to the overall feel of the room. Shower trays, with anti-slip technology, improve the underfoot experience, which will contribute positively to your shower routine.

Of course, mirrors and fittings are the usual go-to items when redecorating a bathroom, but thinking holistically about the whole experience will help you improve your self-care routine.

Other ideas include investing in statement pieces such as stylish lamp shades, traditional or contemporary artwork, houseplants or simple yet effective bath mats or rugs.
