Make the Most of Light

If you are lucky enough to have a sun-exposed window in your bathroom, try adding a stained glass decal to it to brighten things up. The amazing colours as the light shines through will create an instant feel-good atmosphere. Decals come in various designs, prints and simple block colours, so for a few pounds each month you could have a completely new one!

Upcycle End of Season or Unwanted Fixtures

Keep an eye out in big bargain stores for end of season deals on wall cabinets, or storage units (for towels or toiletries). Add fresh paint (from a tester size pot) or a few stencils to create a fresh look.

Buy or Make a Jazzy Shower Curtain

The easiest way to change the look of your bathroom is to switch your generic old shower curtain for something quirky and unique. Trade skills with a talented tailor friend, or buy something basic and add your own individual touches to it.

Show Off Your Smellies and Sundries

Collect large jars and fancy bottles with lids to store and display lotions, hair care products and essentials like cotton wool. Things look way prettier displayed this way than in plastic bottles and bags.

Get Hook Happy

Adding pretty hooks to secure spaces around the bathroom means you can hang jewellery and knick knacks to provide a little sparkle and detail.

Modernise the Flooring

Bathrooms tend to be fairly small, which means less floor space to cover. Dump the carpet and treat yours to some new vinyl flooring, a quick and cheap way to bring new life to the smallest room in the house. If you need advice or help on this, contact a speciality shop like

Look to Candle Light

From large Roman candles to scented tea lights, it’s not difficult to find affordable candles of all shapes and sizes these days. The ethereal soft lighting effect they produce will transform your bathroom from functional to spa-like in seconds.
