After all it’s the one room you visit several times every day, and it’s almost always the first room you visit on waking as well as the last before you get into bed! However, as bathrooms are so frequently used, they require a little more maintenance that your other rooms.

Whether you need a complete renovation or just a few simple repairs, here are five updates that your bathroom could benefit from right now that will not only make the space a more comfortable and welcoming place to spend time, but will also add value to your property. 


Change Your Fittings
You might not be able to stretch to a brand new bathroom suite, but if you can’t replace your tub and your sink, it might be worth looking at how you can update your faucets and showerheads. There are lots of different options out there to choose from, and they won’t cost the Earth either. Whether you opt for a stylish and modern chrome finish for a little contemporary appeal or whether you prefer to go back in time to a Victorian brass faucet, you’ll find that your bathroom looks a whole let better by making this subtle and simple change. There are lots of beautiful faucets that are perfect for your bathroom sink, so take the time to do the research and find something that’s perfect for you. 

Update Your Tiles
Are your bathroom tiles looking tired and old. If so, there are lots of things you can do to update them without spending too much money. If the grout is looking dirty and unattractive, you can either replace it or simply paint over it with a grout pen. This will make the grout look fresh and white again, breathing new life into your bathroom. You can paint your tiles with a specialist tile paint for a whole new look for your walls, or even add decals in a range of attractive patterns for an even more stylish look. 

Change Your Lighting
Bathroom lighting can make a big difference to the ambience and atmosphere of your space. There are lots of options available for bathroom lighting. You can either choose a dramatic pendant light – perhaps a chandelier for a really sophisticated look – or an uplighter, or even go for recessed lighting which will add a really modern appearance to your room. Why not opt for a dimmer switch to get some excellent mood lighting for your space that is sure to catch the eye for all the right reasons.

Improve Your Storage
Even if you have a stunning color scheme or beautiful fixtures, your bathroom will never hit the spot if you don’t have sufficient storage. A cluttered vanity counter and a lack of storage for toiletries and towels will just make your space look messy and unappealing. It’s time to add some under-sink storage or an attractive shower caddy. If possible, you should also consider adding a mirrored medicine cabinet which is the perfect place to keep shampoo, conditioner and odds and ends while also giving you a handy mirror and bringing more light and the illusion of space into your bathroom. You’ll really notice the difference.

A New Showerhead
If you can’t afford to replace your entire shower stall, you can still replace your showerhead at a fraction of the cost. A new showerhead can make an enormous difference to your bathroom and to your showering experience. A rain shower head gives you a wonderful massaging effect, looks expensive and can make your bathroom feel more like a spa. It’s definitely well worth making the upgrade!

So, there you have it. Five upgrades which your bathroom definitely needs right now. Make these few simple changes, and your bathroom will feel brand new without having to spend too much money on an entire renovation project!
