In this blog we share five of the best modern bathroom updates that are sure to add style and practicality to any space.
The bathroom often gets neglected when it comes to decorating, as it can be challenging to create the exact look and feel that we really desire, as well as the fact that most of us tend to inherit a bathroom suite when moving home.
Renovating the bathroom is not only costly, but can be time consuming too, so that’s why we try to create an individual look with small and affordable changes.
Add pops of colour
For those who have a white bathroom suite jazz it up by adding bright pops of colour. There are plenty of ways to add colour to the bathroom such as with towels, bath mats and shower curtains.
Vanity units now come in bolder colours such as gloss purple and gloss red, and are great for not only updating the bathroom but for providing a practical storage solution too.
Update the bathroom lighting
It’s not very often that we think about replacing the lighting in the bathroom, but it provides a great opportunity to breathe new life into the space. There are an array of modern bathroom lighting options available, just make sure the light fitting has the correct IP rating for the particular zone that you’re fitting it in.
Wall lights above a basin help to create a focal point, spotlights in the ceiling provide a clean, modern look and even an illuminated mirror or cabinet offers a simple, yet effective update.
Freshen up the bathroom tiles
If you don’t have the budget or the time to replace the tiles in your bathroom you can easily update them with tile transfers or tile paint. Tile transfers provide a great solution for covering up an old pattern or for adding life to plain, white tiles. Tile paint requires a bit of extra skill, but is ideal for creating a fresh, new look.
New bathroom accessories
Fitting new modern accessories such as a matching towel rail and a toilet roll holder helps to create a co-ordinated look.
New shower accessories such as a shower tidy are also perfect, and provide a great solution for de-cluttering the surfaces around the shower tray or bath, and if the shower is old make sure to replace it with a new one.
Add interest to the window
A bright coloured or patterned blind offers an affordable way to achieve a modern look to the bathroom. But, becoming increasingly popular are shutters. Shutters are now available in new materials that are suitable for use in the bathroom and are just perfect for creating modern yet country inspired look.
