When we think of bathroom renovations, what comes to mind is generally months of having a bathroom out of action and a big bill at the end of it all. As a result, most people put off bathroom makeovers and this area of the house often ends up looking a little drab and neglected. Happily, there are plenty of cost effective ways to make your bathroom feel stylish and on trend and this week we take a look at just a few of them.

Plants in the bathroom? Why not!

Buy a new shower curtain

Shower curtains, like toilet brushes, tend to be one of those things we keep around far longer than we really should. If your shower curtain is beginning to look a little miserable, get rid of it and add a little aesthetic flair to your bathroom with one of these cheap and cheerful creations.

Get a professional clean

If your bathroom isn’t feeling too fresh and no amount of back breaking tub scrubbing helps, it might be time to bring in the professionals. Professional cleaners have the tools (like steam cleaners) and expertise necessary to give your bathroom a good cleanse and probably clean things you didn’t even know needed cleaning. At the end of the process, you’ll have a sparkling bathroom that feels good as new.

Update old light fittings

Nothing dates a bathroom quite like light fittings. So get rid of that grubby cobweb covered bulb and replace with something that has a little more flair.

Buy some new towels

Get rid of your balding, mismatched towels and replace them with a coordinated set or play with patterns and complimentary colours for a more eclectic look.


The concept of decorating your bathroom might seem a little odd, but small details really can make an enormous difference to the overall feel of the room. Fancy scented candles, moisture loving indoor plants, and maybe even a framed print or two will give your bathroom an instant lift and add a personal touch.
