Transform your bathroom on a budget

Posted on: Tuesday, July 2, 2024


Are you looking to transform your bathroom? Here are some inspirational tips to give your bathroom a makeover without breaking the bank: 

Consider recaulking and repainting instead of retiling 

Deciding which tiles to buy can take time, so it’s a good idea to make good use of samples to see how they look. Using larger tiles can sometimes save a little money on labour costs, however, tiling can be expensive. If new tiles are not in your budget, painting and regrouting your existing tiles will transform your bathroom for a fraction of the cost. Have your bespoke colours mixed for you for the walls or choose an eggshell bathroom paint. Combining this with some recaulking of your bathroom suite will make it look brand-new again.

Flooring has transformative powers

Unless you live in a home with an extraordinarily large bathroom, changing the flooring in your bathroom will be much cheaper than it would be in your kitchen. Add to this the much improved and varied choice in quality vinyl bathroom flooring and you could lift the aesthetic of your space without overspending. Waterproof laminate flooring is also another option, however, if you prefer tiles and you like the idea of doing it yourself, the good news is that tiles in themselves are relatively inexpensive, and if you have a skilled friend or relative to help, even better! 

Lighting and mirrors

An LED mirror or a new pull cord is an easy way to brighten up your bathroom. New LED ceiling lights are good for reducing your energy bills while improving the quality of light, which is highly practical for time spent in front of the mirror. Placing mirrors opposite each other will create the impression of more space, too. 

New fittings, fixtures and finishing touches

New taps, a new shower head or a towel radiator, when combined with other changes will finish your makeover nicely. Small items, such as soap dishes, and larger items, such as freestanding furniture and shelving, are relatively easy additions to make when modernising the space. Additionally, a new shower curtain or screen and a new toilet seat may lift the lid on your bathroom's potential. 

Treat yourself

Think of your bathroom as a sanctuary for relaxation. Create a special place for scents and essential oils so you can soothe away the stresses of the day as if you were in your own spa.

Having recently used 3 other agents I can say with hesitation that WGH are in a different league, very professional, efficient, polite and friendly. 3 other agents have marketed my house which only achieved 2 viewings in total. I had 2 viewings with WGH in the first week which I put down to their marketing skills

WG-H couldn't have been more helpful, queries were answered immediately by professional courteous staff , and they even offered to turn the heating up in our holiday house when the weather was particularly cold. Gayle would ring us during an evening to respond to our query , if required and Amanda even paid a cheque into our bank account. What a lovely company to work with.

Adrian and his team have been amazing from start to finish. Very polished team, with the highest standards. I have recommended them to friends and family who have also been impressed by them.
