If you’re not careful, a practical bathroom can become a boring, bland space. Serving its purpose as the whole family bathes and gets ready for the day, it’s easy to forget about your bathroom when you think of the other home renovations on the list.
But it shouldn’t be! Even the most ordinary rental bathroom has the potential to become a tranquil place to relax and unwind after a long, hard day. Here are just a few ways you can transform your bathroom on a budget.
- Seal an old bathtub
With the cost of living rising exponentially, you might be wondering how you can improve your bathroom without splashing the cash. Luckily, replacing the sealant on your bath is an easy way to update your bathroom. All you need is a cartridge gun with new sealant, a Stanley knife and some sealant remover.
To replace the sealant, use the sealant remover and a knife to remove the old sealant before filling the gap between your tiles and bathtub.
- Upcycle furniture
Nowadays, many people have turned to second-hand clothes shopping in a bid to save the environment. And now that trend has extended to furniture!
As well as being better for the environment and much cheaper than buying a brand-new bathroom cabinet, upcycling can completely transform the look of your bathroom. Everything from vintage storage cabinets to small tables and desks can be repurposed into a sink unit.
Not only is this a great way to keep the cost of your bathroom renovation down – but it also makes your bathroom unique and very ‘you’.
- Inject some colour
Most people think white is the only colour to paint your bathroom. But it’s not true! Bathrooms are one of the best rooms to start experiment with colour. If you’re not brave enough to give colour-drenching a go, you can start small by painting your radiators a bright colour.
If you prefer muted tones, saturated shades of grey and rich wood hues can give your bathroom a chic, bold look without looking over the top.
- Upgrade your lighting
Nobody’s saying you need to ditch the spotlights. After all, they’re pretty handy for bathroom tasks that require more precision! But one way you can elevate your bathroom is by adding some more lighting.
As well as having bright ceiling lights, softer lighting by the sink can create an ambient bathroom that you love spending time in. Add into the mix some scented candles and you’ll have the spa-like feeling all day long.
Many people think that they can’t afford the bathroom of their dreams. But the reality is that a few simple tweaks can make the world of difference. If you’re bored of your bathroom, perhaps it’s time to take the plunge and spruce things up a little.
