It’s always nice to do a bit of home decorating from time to time. Giving a few of your rooms a makeover is the perfect way to rejuvenate the look of your home. Of course, completely revamping a whole room doesn’t come cheap, and often we can want a remodel but simply don’t have the funds to do so. As the bathroom is one of the most expensive rooms to remodel, it can get neglected. However, with a little bit of TLC you can revamp your bathroom and still keep your bank balance happy.

Be ornament happy

Ornaments are great inexpensive weapons. They can fully transform the look and feel of a room if you apply a little strategy when you’re out and about shopping. If your bathroom has a theme, or even if it doesn’t, you can buy ornaments accordingly. The best approach to take is to buy ornaments that all have similar aesthetics. That way, your bathroom will look refreshed, and more importantly, nice and organised. Buy a random selection of ornaments and you risk making your bathroom look more like a jumble sale.

Shell out on shelves

Shelving can be found at practically every home store, and it adds a nice touch to an uninspired bathroom. Shelves come in a range of materials, colours, shapes, and sizes. With a little effort, you can totally change the look of your bathroom. Probably the best thing about shelves is their price. Many stores offer shelving at very reasonable prices, allowing you to transform your bathroom without transforming your wallet (too much).

Mix it up with mirrors

Mirrors are an essential item for every bathroom. Without them, A&E would be inundated with not-so-pretty sight of shaving accident victims. Mirrors are also useful for mixing things up a little. The style, shaping, and size of mirrors are endless. You can even make your own if you have a creative flair and time on your hands. Plus, mirrored glass is as cheap as chips.

Heated towel rails

These are a little more expensive than the other items listed here, but then again, they are pretty awesome. They come in mainly silver and chrome finishes, so they are perfect for modernising your bathroom, or adding an extra modern touch to your current modernised bathroom. They also heat your towels and your bathroom, which in winter is a luxury that shouldn’t be overlooked.… READ MORE
