Your bathroom is one of the many rooms in your home that you use every day for multiple reasons. If you have a combined toilet and bathroom you could potentially be using it for toilet uses, washing your hands and face, showering, bathing, and even cleaning. Many people choose to leave their bathroom as it is because it’s fully functioning, but why not consider upgrading it since you use it so often each day? Having a more upgraded bathroom will also increase the value of your property. Not only that, when you have guests to stay there will be no worry in your mind that the state of your bathroom will disgust anyone. Here are some super stylish bathroom upgrade ideas for you to consider this winter.
Walk in shower
All showers are walk in? I hear you say? While you must step into a shower, having one that’s large enough to freely move around will add class and luxury to your bathroom. Consider buying a larger shower tray and surrounding screens to add extra class to your bathroom and also give you plenty of room to have a sing and dance in the shower!
If retiling your shower is out of the question, then why not consider re grouting your tiles and giving them a lick of paint to freshen up the look of the room? It’s really cheap and easy to do and can completely change how your bathroom feels when you walk into it. Sometimes, a simple good scrub of your tiles and grouting will do the trick too, so it might be an idea to try that first.
A new sink
Over time it’s easy for your bathroom sink to get rather dirty and worn, even if you’re regularly cleaning it. Sometimes, a new sink can make your bathroom look brand new. You can get designer sinks that come in all shapes and sizes here http://www.drench.co.uk/toilets-basins/basins/countertop-basins. If you choose to go for a basin that’s funky in shape then it will make your bathroom look more designer.
Another little feature you could add would be to add LED lights to your taps. They let you know what temperature the water is by displaying a particular colour for each. Imagine wowing your guests with that awesome feature in your home. Also, if you’re nipping to the bathroom at night you’d easily be able to see the taps for washing your hands.
One thing that many people disregard in their bathrooms is storage space. This is because it’s not usually a room that springs to mind when talking about where you could add storage in your home. Consider buying or building a vanity cupboard underneath your sink so that you can store toiletries and vanity items without the risk of prying eyes.
Another thing that you should consider is adding shelving to store things like towels and extra bars of soap on. A great way to ensure that you never run out of storage space or towels when you’re in the bathroom.
Consider buying matching body towels, face towels and flannels for your bathroom to add some extra class to the room. If you’ve got a particular colour scheme then sticking with it would tie the theme of it together for you.
Plus, when you have guests to stay you can rest assured that your bathroom is looking at it’s best and the matching towels will certainly help contribute towards that. If you wanted to take it further you could get a bath mat and shower curtain of the same colour or pattern to really tie it together nicely.
While it’s illegal to have electrical outlets in a bathroom, you could change what kind of lighting you have in your bathroom to really add some cosy ambience to the room. Adding a light with an extractor fan above your shower will allow you to have just that light on when using the bathroom rather than one glaring light. You can now also get multicoloured LED lights for extractor fans too which would add an incredible source of light to the room.
Consider these five ideas for your bathroom and you will soon find that you have a much more stylish bathroom that you’re not ashamed of. Remember, classy touches can completely change the look and feel of a room, so if you can’t afford large changes then stick to small and sophisticated!
