There are a variety of ways in which you can refurbish the bathroom to create a fresh, new look ranging from a total revamp where everything is done in one go, or a project that can be done over time, where you can replace the fixtures and fittings in phases.

For those who are on a limited budget and find the cost of a total refurbishment daunting, replacing various items over time is an ideal option, plus it means that you won’t have to worry about asking the neighbour to use their bathroom.

There are an array of taps available to choose from to enhance the style of any style of bathroom, ranging from the contemporary to the traditional and you don’t need to spend a fortune either.

For those who have a shower curtain over the bath you can make a significant difference to the look of your bathroom by replacing it with a bath screen. Bath screens can really help to open up small spaces and add modern style to any bathroom.

Why not set aside one weekend to replace the old tiles or paint the walls? By updating the bathroom in stages you can still achieve a new look but just over time instead.
