Is there anything nicer than a hot bath at the end of the day? It can ease tense muscles, reduce blood pressure and gives you a quiet space to relax, unwind and clear your mind. An invigorating shower to start your day is equally as nice, and can really set you up for success in your day. You’ll feel fresh, more awake and it can even stimulate the lymphatic system which helps your body to detoxify itself and improve circulation. Either way, baths and showers are about much more than just getting clean. The bathroom is an important room in the house. If you don’t feel like you’re fully reaping the rewards of a nice bathroom, why not aim to upgrade this year? Here are some of the ways you can go about it.
Your first job when upgrading your bathroom is to choose the suite. You can shop online for a convenient bathtub, shower, sink and toilet and find a set that matches your budget and personal taste. Have a think about the layout. If your current layout doesn’t work, switch things up. Maybe you could have a separate stand- up shower cubicle installed along with a freestanding bath? Perhaps moving things around would allow you to have a double sink vanity installed for an ultra glamorous look? Either way, work out how much space you have and the layout and then choose a suite that fits the bill.
It’s the tiles in older bathrooms which really bring down the look. Unlike paint and wallpaper, tiles can’t easily be changed. Meaning in most bathrooms they’re around for many years through different decor changes, and are usually past their best by the time you decide to bite the bullet and have them redone. They will instantly transform a bathroom making it look modern and also feel fresh and clean too. Have it tiled from top to bottom for the best finish. If your tiles are still in good condition and don’t look dated, use a grout tool to scrape out the grout and have them refilled making everywhere look clean and new. Darker tiles on the floor and lighter tiles on the wall are always a safe bet.
Your new bathroom might look spectacular, but it’s the finishing touches that make it homely and practical. First, good storage that suits the design and fits the space is essential. Keep all of those half-finished products and kids toys out of the way to avoid it looking cluttered. Buy a fluffy new bath mat and new towels, and add decor and interest with a nice plant and perhaps some apothecary jars filled with soaps and bath bombs. Its practical as well as good looking! Your toothbrush holder, toilet brush and soap dish could all be replaced to giving a fresh new look throughout.
