From a fresh coat of paint to replacing the taps, there are many ways to revamp your bathroom on a budget. Another way to save money is to shop when there’s a bathroom sale on, you never know what bargains you will come across! So, if you’re stuck for ways to update this much used space, then check out our top tips for creating a fresh new look without breaking the bank.
Shop for bargains
If you’re on the hunt for a cheap bathroom, then it makes perfect sense to shop when the sales are on, plus it’s also a good idea to keep an eye out for voucher codes so you can save even more money. At CheapSuites, there’s plenty of bathroom bargains, and you can get a new suite from as low as £165!
Discount bathrooms don’t necessarily mean the quality is poor, but you should always check the guarantee period, and features such as the thickness of the acrylic if you are buying a suite with a bath, or the thickness of the glass if you are opting for a shower enclosure.
Choosing a complete bathroom suite package is another way to save money. A bathroom suite typically includes a matching basin and toilet, and a bath, and some even includes the taps. They come in both modern and traditional styles to suit any home.
Budget bathrooms are also ideal for student accommodation and for rental properties too.
Replace the bath
Replacing the bath is not as expensive as you may think, and you can save even more money if you have the DIY skills to fit it yourself.
There are many different types of baths for sale including straight standard baths, freestanding baths, corner baths and space saving shower baths to suit any bathroom design. The most affordable bath for sale is a straight standard design made from acrylic, which is available in various sizes ranging from a compact 1500mm to 1800mm. They usually don’t include the panels, waste and taps, so you will need to factor these essential items into your budget.
Fit new taps
Fitting new taps provides a quick and affordable way to revamp your bathroom. With so many designs to choose from, you’ll have no trouble finding a style to suit your bathroom. Taps have a solid brass construction so you can be assured of great durability, and most have a chrome finish that blends in easily with any décor. When choosing new taps, make sure they incorporate ceramic disc technology, which prevents leaks and drips.
New towels and accessories
Nothing freshens up the bathroom like a new set of towels and accessories. Bright towels are great for adding a splash of colour to a plain white bathroom, while natural colours are ideal for creating a relaxing spa-like scheme.
Matching accessories such as a towel rail, toilet roll holder and soap dispenser will improve the functionality of your bathroom and create a stylish new look. You can even add a touch of luxury by styling up a tray so you can display candles, flowers and pretty toiletries.
Clear away clutter
A good tidy up and clearing away clutter doesn’t cost anything, and it can make the world of difference in your bathroom. Hide toiletries in a mirrored cabinet or vanity unit to ensure surfaces are kept clear. If your bathroom lacks storage, then opt for a vanity unit, which combines a basin and cupboard or drawers underneath. Vanity units are stylish and practical, and they come in an array of styles and sizes to suit any bathroom, small or large.
Update the floor
There’s so many great flooring options available, and you really don’t need to spend a fortune on creating a high end look. If you love the look of stone, but you just don’t have the budget, it’s definitely worth thinking about vinyl. Vinyl offers a stylish and practical option for bathroom floors, and there’s an array of colours and designs available to suit any bathroom so you can easily create a look you’ll love without splashing the cash.
A fresh coat of paint
A fresh coat of paint provides a quick and easy way to breathe life back into your bathroom and adds a splash of colour too. Opt for natural colours if you want to enhance a sense of relaxation, or choose bright colours to create a sense of fun in a family bathroom. Before committing to a colour, it’s a good idea to try some tester pots out to see what would work best in your bathroom, and choose a paint that’s suitable for use in a humid environment.
