Your bathroom needs a little care and attention from time to time. This doesn’t need to mean spending money on professional renovations, however.
With these bathroom updates, you will have the satisfaction of doing the job yourself and saving money.
Try these DIY projects to make your bathroom look as good as new.
#1 A fresh coat of paint
A fresh coat of paint works wonders at improving the look and quality of any room. Water and steam can leave permanent marks on painted bathroom walls, so a lick of paint will cover any imperfections and create a clean, smooth finish. To prevent further damage, choose a paint that is specially designed for bathroom walls. Naturally, how long this job will take depends on the size of your bathroom, but it is unlikely to take more than two days to complete. Get quality and useful tools, such as an extendable roller, to ensure a good, quick and easy job.
#2 Install new taps
It’s amazing the difference a gleaming new chrome faucet on your sink or bathtub can do to improve your bathroom suite. The first thing to do is select and buy the taps that suit your bathroom style. Vado Taps, for example, have a wide range of beautiful styles from classic to ultra-modern. Replacing taps is much easier than you may think. If you’ve not done it before, it is recommended that you do some background reading and follow a tutorial from a trustworthy source.
#3 Improve your storage
Take a good look at your bathroom, are you using the space effectively? No matter the shape or size of your bathroom there will be storage solutions to work. You may just need to source a standalone cabinet that fits in your space. On the other hand, you may want to install floating shelves up your walls if you lack space. There are loads of really cool and creative bathroom storage ideas online, so take a look if you are feeling up to an artistic DIY challenge.
#4 Add wall decorations
Mirrors and paintings can make a huge difference to the appearance of your bathroom. Mirrors also help create the illusion of space and reflect light back into the room, so they are perfect for little bathrooms. Pictures are a great way to add interest to your bathroom. When you are relaxing in the bath or enjoying a warm shower, it’s nice to look at a beautiful painting or scene. Both artwork and mirrors can be hung on your bathroom walls in no time.
#5 Deep clean
As well as your more technical DIY bathroom projects a good deep clean will make your bathroom look as good as new. Deal with mould, mildew and dirt in grout between tiles. Additionally, clean the elements that often get neglected during routine cleaning like the shower curtain or shower door and the base of the sink and toilet.
With a little planning, creativity and plenty of elbow grease, it can be satisfying and money-saving to perform these simple DIY updates on your bathroom. What are you waiting for? Start improving your bathroom today!
