Improving your bathroom and giving it a new lease of life does not always have to necessitate a large scale, disruptive, time-consuming job. Here are seven ways you can drastically improve your bathroom (and subsequently your morning routine) without having to pry up floor tiles and lay down extra piping.
Add Natural Light
Natural light can bring with it physical, mental and emotional benefits – making it important to incorporate throughout your life. Whilst it may be more than a weekend job to increase the size of your bathrooms, you can use natural light tones to develop the same sensation in the bathroom. Natural Light Tubular develops specially-designed skylights which incorporate natural light in the home.
Update your Taps
Replacing the taps of a sink unit or bath tub is a quicker and simpler job than many people realise. With a standardised fitting common in the vast majority of bathrooms, a replacement tap can be installed in as little as an hour. Interiors specialist, John Louis Bathrooms, has a range of modern, stylish fixtures which can breathe extra life into the room.
Installing a new shower room is a great way to totally transform your home. Not only will it make showering and getting ready for the day more pleasant, but it will help your house have a more modern feel. Too many beautiful homes have bathrooms with only a bathtub, which is not the most practical use of space, nor is it the easiest way to bathe. No matter whether you’re improving your home to sell it on, or whether you want to change it to be more comfortable for yourself, adding in a shower room will achieve both results quickly!
Incorporate New Colours
If you have collected towels, décor and flourishes over the years, your bathroom might have developed an eclectic (read: disorganised) appearance. Update all the coloured flourishes with a well-developed colour scheme to add a semblance of organised structure.
Deep Clean Tiles
Sometimes when you spend every day going into the same room, you will not notice the slow development of dirt and grime. Give the floor and wall tiles of a bathroom a good cleaning to help return it to its original shine and appearance. Cleanipedia offers a comprehensive guide detailing how to perform an effective deep clean on tiles and bathroom fixtures.
Magazine Rack Storage
If your bathroom is made to look unsightly and unorganised with electronic products laying around in an unkempt fashion, the simple installation of a magazine rack can help organise the room. Affix a small magazine rack onto the inside of the cabinet door to store hair straighteners, electronic razors and more.
If you’re always losing small bathroom items such as bobby pins, tweezers and nail files – add a magnetic strip to help organise the bathroom. Simply stick the magnetic strip to the wall or on a cabinet and you can simply affix all the small metallic items you’re always losing. Whilst this may not make the bathroom look a great deal neater, it can help save time in the morning whilst you frantically search about for a hair pin to control your frizzy locks. Here is a guide to the metals which would be attracted to a magnetic strip.
Have a Fruit Cleanse
Whilst expensive, specialised cleaning products can help remove stains and return the sparkle – many cleaning jobs can be completed with the aid of simple, household fruit. Use these fruit to remove stains and add a fresh smell to the room. Half a grapefruit is perfect for cleaning white surfaces. Simply soak the surface and scrub with the half a grapefruit sprinkled with ¼ cup of salt. Using a similar technique, lemons can be used to clean shower doors.
