Up-style your bathroom...

There are many ways to up-style your bathroom without going to the extent of ripping out floors and removing tiles. The smallest touches can make all the difference. In fact a colleague of mine has recently wallpapered her W.C. using the cutest wall art showing various forms of the VW Beatle on one tiny wall and this has made a huge impact with very little effort.

Most homes don't have the largest bathrooms and, so, lighting will make a huge difference to the feel of your bathroom.  LED lighting specially designed for damp conditions like this I found on are a really cheap way to install great quality lighting in your space.  Softer, more cosy lighting can then be added through the use of candles and fairy lights.  A mason jar that can be sealed, filled with battery operated fairy lights will give a lovely soft and safe glow at bath time.

If your entire bathroom is tiled and they are looking a bit tired then there are two great ways to give these a lift.  The first option is to use tile paint.  This is available in a few colours in Woodies and in many colour's in B&Q.  This product is surprisingly simple to use and the preparation is the most important step by far.  There are many video tutorials available through youtube.  Another great product that would be suitable for this cover up would be a product called Grosfillex. Grosfillex and similar products can be found in most hardware stores. These are beautiful panels that can be installed directly over existing tiles.  This product is available in many different styles and finishes.

If your house wasn't a self build, like mine, then you know the bathroom hardware may not be the best quality.  If this is the case for you then an instant uplift to the look of the bathroom would be to change out your taps and such.  Any hardware store should have a large amount of these to choose from.  Screwfix also have a huge range online that are very affordable.

When your bathroom flooring is gone a bit dated, something as simple as a new bathroom rug is a great way to add colour and spruce up your floor space.  This is also a great oppurtunity to make a statement.  If re-flooring is necessary then there are many vinyl options available that are extremely deceiving and often need to be touched to decifer whether these are real tile or wood floor.  These can be laid very cheaply and quickly.

Now, onto my favourite part of any room, the window dressing.  There are many options for dressing a bathroom window.  Most bathrooms these days are well ventilated and so moisture should not be an issue when considering your window covering.  If moisture is an issue for you, then many of our ranges have moisture proof options.  These are PVC roller blinds, PVC vertical blinds, faux wood venetians, and aluminium blinds.  Unfortunately roman blinds should only be fitted in a ventilated space as these are manufactured using curtain fabric.  These, however, are a beautiful statement in any room.  My personal type of window covering in a bathroom window is a plantation shutter.  These have the loveliest clean lines and are so simple to maintain and will match almost everything.  If moisture is an issue in your bathroom, then we can supply you with a fully moisture resistant shutter that is called the Vienna range.

Happy Sprucing!!!
