Upgrading your bathroom doesn't have to be a long and complicated process. Rather than installing a brand new bath or a complicated electric shower, upgrading your bathroom’s look can be as simple as changing the lighting or adding a few luxury accessories. Don’t worry if you’re not a qualified plumber, and don’t worry if your budget won’t stretch to a brand new bathroom suite; upgrading your bathroom and completely transforming its look has never been so simple.

Fittings and Fixtures:
You don’t need to be an expert on plumbing to change over your bathroom taps or your shower head, and doing so can completely change around the look of a room. Fixtures which have been in place for a number of years can look very dated, so opting for some shiny new stainless steel taps for your basin or brass mixer taps for your bath can bring the room right back up to date. There are thousands of different designs available, made from different materials and with different ways to turn them on and off. Simple twist taps, push taps and taps with levers can all be added to the bathroom for much less than the price of installing a brand new sink or bath.
The way a bathroom is illuminated can absolutely transform the way it feels. The bathroom lighting options many people opt for are generic and unflattering; usually one single overhead fluorescent bulb that doesn't give anyone the greatest confidence in their reflection, and washes out the surroundings. Add some extra wall lights or install spotlights instead to provide more lighting options for different moods. Relaxing in a bubble bath? Light some candles and switch on a wall light for dim lighting that flatters and won’t be too stimulating. Trying to coordinate a school run in the depth of winter? Turn on the spotlights at full blast to wake everyone up and ensure there is adequate lighting. Upgrading lighting is a very simple way to upgrade an entire bathroom, and it won’t cost the Earth.
When it comes to bathrooms, overloaded with hair products, shower gels, cleaning products, towels and other linen, you can never have enough storage. Clutter can make a bathroom feel cramped and crowded, so upgrading your storage facilities wherever possible is a great way to give the room a new lease of life. Invest in a new bathroom cabinet, or browse the web for innovative ways to store your essential items. Have an old office organiser lying around? Use it to store toothbrushes, make-up brushes or any other slim items. Turn an old CD storage tower on its side and affix to a wall as a great storage solution for flannels, bottles and brushes. Get creative and see how storage can transform your bathroom!
