Give fixtures a deep
One easy way of making your fixtures look like new is by giving them a deep clean.
There are loads of cleaning products on the market and this process will instantly refresh your bathroom. You can
even create your own household cleaners, using vinegar and lemon juice. These can be used effectively, in a number
of ways and are cheaper than most cleaning products. Most of your fixtures will be used on a daily basis and will
benefit from having this extra cleaning attention.
If your fixtures are no longer effective or leaking, it might be time to replace
them. You may want to buy new taps or improve your shower with a high pressure shower
head. These don’t have to be expensive. High costs do not always
equal better quality. You just need to shop around and read reviews to find the best deals on top quality
products. Having newer fixtures will breath some life back into your sink and make using the bathroom more
Pick a theme and stick with it
When updating a room, I think it is essential to pick a theme and stick to it. You
don’t want the design of your bathroom to look confused. Your design can be updated easily. Buy
a coloured or printed bath set, which includes bath
mats and towels. These will provide some unity to your room and
should always compliment your theme.

Touching up the paint
work will make your room look like new in no time. You can
either touch up the existing paint work or choose a different colour. Pick a colour that will be visually
pleasing when you’re taking a soak. You don’t want something that is going to give you a headache. Painting
your bathroom cabinets and replacing their handles is another fresh look idea.
Inject glamour into the
Why not bring in some artwork or decorative mirrors to your bathroom? It’s an easy
way of adding some personality and injecting some glamour into the space. You could use some artwork you already
have or even make some for yourself. These can be as large or as small as you like. If you have a tiled bathroom
and unable to hang pictures, you can use accessories instead. Why not place some candles on your work surface? or
maybe a vase or small ornaments? By placing items such as these you are adding interest to the space, without
spending too much.
You really don’t have to spend a fortune updating your bathroom. Try to determine
exactly what needs updating or replacing and start from there. All your bathroom needs is some TLC.
