If your bathroom is in need of an update but you don’t have the time or budget for a complete refurbishment there are plenty of ways to achieve a fresh, new look and feel. Here are seven quick bathroom fixes that are sure to inspire you.

Replace the shower curtain

An old shower curtain won’t do your bathroom any favours, so replace it with a bath screen to create a fresh new look, as well as helping to enhance a feeling of space too.

Practical storage

Most bathrooms are on the small side so it’s important to include some practical storage. Opt for a multi-purpose bathroom cabinet which doubles up as a mirror and includes lighting, this way all your toiletries will be within easy reach and your sink area will be well illuminated too.

Introduce colour & texture

A plain, white bathroom suite can look cold and uninviting, so think about introducing colour and texture by choosing some coloured towels and accessories, with or without patterns; this provides a great way to make your bathroom feel more welcoming.

Lay a vinyl floor

Vinyl flooring is available in a wide variety of printed designs ranging from mosaic tiles to wood planks, as well as a whole other array of patterns too. Vinyl flooring is ideal for bathrooms as it can cope with the humid and moist conditions, plus it provides an affordable and easy way to update the look of your bathroom.

If you have a small space opt for light colours and keep the pattern unfussy, which will help to make the room appear more spacious.

Add wallpaper

Including wallpaper in your bathroom can really transform the look and feel of the room, but make sure you opt for wallpaper that has been specifically designed for use in the bathroom. Look out for bold patterns to add some wow factor.

Install a heated towel rail
