Upgrading Your Bathroom on a Budget
Our bathrooms are one of the most important rooms in our home. In fact, most households find that the bathroom is the busiest room in the house, apart from the kitchen. This is especially true during the weekday mornings when every family member needs to use the toilet and hop in the shower to get ready for work or school. And, it’s not just the family that use the bathroom – it also needs to be comfortable for and appealing to any guests that visit your home or stay over. If your bathroom is starting to look and feel slightly old and dated, it could be time for some updates. We’ve put together some top tips for upgrading your bathroom on a budget.
1) Use A Mirror For Added Space And Light:

Adding a large mirror to your bathroom can make a huge amount of difference to the space. Mirrors are a great addition to any room since they can increase the perception of space and make the whole room look much bigger than it actually is. If you have a small bathroom, a mirror is one of the cheapest and easiest ways to upgrade the space by adding extra light and the illusion of more room.
2) Replace Leaky Tiles:

Sometimes, the need to update a bathroom goes much further than simple aesthetics. For example, tiles are one of the most common items in your bathroom which will need replacing more often than the others. Whilst most modern tiles are designed to be sturdy and durable, tiling that has been there for some time may begin to leak and let the water through. You could end up with water damaged walls or floors if this issue is left unattended, so it’s best to replace old tiles sooner rather than later.
3) Renew The Tile Grout:

Even if your tiles themselves are in good condition, deterioration of your tile grout can bring the whole room down with it. Grout that has gone yellow, brown, or black in between your tiles can quickly make an otherwise nice space look dirty and scruffy. This is particularly true in the shower space, where a pink or orange film can quickly form on top of the grout. Cleaning regularly can help you to keep on top of it, but eventually, you’ll need to renew the grout completely. If you want a quicker, easier job, you can get a grout pen from most good DIY shops.
4) Upgrade Your Shower Head:

Lastly, simply upgrading your showerhead can make a huge difference to both the looks and functionality of your bathroom. Instead of replacing the whole shower, upgrading to a shower head with more settings, or a ‘rain’ shower head, can make your whole shower experience so much better without having to spend a great deal of money.
