Sure, most of us would love to gut the bathroom and start from scratch! But if a full remodel isn’t in the budget (or, like many, you just don’t have the time!), there are inexpensive changes you can make that will really give you bang for your buck!
We’ve got five ideas, via Gulf News, that will make a visual impact without breaking the bank!
Let’s Talk About Tile
Tile is tricky. Yes, it will last for decades… which can be a problem if you’re stuck with a pink or avocado green bathroom you don’t like. So most folks opt for something neutral and classic, like subway tile. But subway tile is so well known as a safe option it’s becoming tiresome to many. Consider a new look.
The hexagon is the hottest tile geometry, easily applicable to traditional and contemporary colour palettes. Be it a colour block (use contrasting grout), monochrome (play with multiple shades of the same colour) or contrast — when used in a trickle down, irregular design against hardwood or stone — with this tile shape, visual impact is a given.
Round It Up
Your mirror, that is. Especially if you’re still staring at a utilitarian (but ugly) medicine cabinet mirror.
Almost everything looks and feels better in the round. After centuries of rectangles and squares to peer into, the round mirror is your go-to for an instant face lift.
Go For The Gold
Trade in the nickel-plated taps (or worse, the cheap plastic ones with chrome paint) for something truly decadent.
The lust for gold refuses to ebb. And rightly so. In one feel sweep it can make any space feel lush. From gloss to matte, applied to the curves of old fashioned Victorian taps or the minimal aesthetic of modern design, gold delivers without fault.
With a few simple touches, you can give your bathroom a visual upgrade without going broke. And every time you go into the room, you’ll be glad you did!
