Create a big splash in the bathroom on a budget

Create a big splash in the bathroom on a budget

Posted by Adam Chard in Inspiration | 5 years ago 2 min read

You might think that decorating your bathroom could cost you an arm and a leg. While it’s true that there are some rather extravagant designs out there, many great things can be done on a tight budget.

Your bathroom should be a place where you can fully relax and unwind, a personal space that allows you to reflect, rest and regroup. So here are a few great things you can do on a very tight budget to make your bathroom beautiful.

Give it a quick repaint

Bathrooms are usually small, manageable spaces and, as a result, they are often very quick and easy to repaint. With a choice of stunning colours, you can pick up a tin of specialist bathroom paint at Go for a couple of 2.5 litre buckets and just give the room a spruce up. You will be instantly amazed at how beautiful it looks, providing you with a solid base from which to do a few other easy decorations.

Remember, it’s best to use waterproof paint, as it will last a very long time. It will also never flake and crumble when subjected to repeated steam from hot water, allowing you to fully enjoy relaxing baths for years to come. Using a brilliant colour, such as white, will also help reflect any natural light and make the room a lot brighter.

Try out a few mirrors

Placing a mirror on the walls adjacent to the main window will allow much more natural light to enter the room. Similar to techniques used in photography, you’ll be able to bounce light to all corners of the room. Mirrors also give the illusion that the room is much bigger, not to mention breathing life into any bare walls in your bathroom.

Get inexpensive vinyl flooring

Bad flooring can really drag a bathroom down. Fortunately, vinyl flooring can be extremely hard-wearing and is available in many contemporary styles to suit a range of budgets. A 3 metre squared bathroom can be re-floored on a very tight budget indeed. This, combined with your new paint job, will make the room look incredible. The great thing about vinyl flooring is that it is very easy to maintain and keep looking beautiful. A mop and a little bathroom cleaner every now and then will ensure it remains fantastic.
