3 Affordable Ways To Improve Your Bathroom

Upgrading your bathroom is one of the easiest ways to add value to your house, whether you are planning to move in the near future, or just want to enjoy having a new look. There’s no need to spend a fortune either, if you are on a small budget. Here are some simple changes which will make a big difference!

Add a large mirror

Bathrooms are usually smaller rooms, so by installing a large mirror, you will create the illusion of more space. Go for the largest mirror your budget will allow, and consider installing additional mirrors opposite a window or entrance to maximise the light flow around the room.

If you can stretch to it, you could even go with the trend for installing wall to floor mirrors behind showers and bathing units. Not only will this double the feeling of space in the room, but it makes personal grooming tasks such as hair washing and hair removal easier. 

Make sure that the mirror is well lit, either with backlighting or overhead lighting. Touchless switches which provide bright illumination for shaving and applying makeup are also useful for hygiene and convenience. 

Finally, consider how the shape and the frame of the mirror will fit in with the current style of your bathroom. Retro style bathrooms may suit rounded gilt frames for example, while more contemporary styles may look better with a frameless rectangular mirror. 

Install a shower screen

Upgrading from a shower curtain to a glass shower screen is one of the easiest and most cost-effective ways to enhance your bathroom. A clear frameless glass screen will open up the bathroom, making it feel better proportioned, and show off more of the tiling. 

Screens are also much easier to keep clean than mould-prone shower curtains, which require frequent washing with harsh chemical products—an inconvenient and time-consuming process. Choose low iron glass for an extra clear look, or go for a tinted or frosted glass if you prefer to have more privacy or design features.

All glass shower screens should be made from toughened safety glass, which is specially treated to help it withstand impacts. In the unlikely event that it does break, it is designed to either crack like a car windscreen would, or break into small pebble like pieces. This lowers the risk of laceration injuries caused by sharp shards of glass. 

Install wall-mounted glass shelving

Bathrooms are places where we need to store numerous items, such as toiletries, towels, grooming products, air fresheners, and more. Storage space is usually at a premium, especially in homes with small bathrooms and large families. 

Installing wall mounted glass shelves will give you extra surfaces without taking up valuable floor space. Glass looks sleek and stylish, and doesn’t detract from the flow of light and colour and the feeling of space in the room. They are also easy to keep clean and not prone to going mouldy as wooden or plastic shelving would be.
