Those old leaky, rusted fittings are what give your bathroom a very dated look. If your pedestal sink and commode are in good shape, just changing your fittings to something more modern, versatile and shinier will instantly upgrade the look and feel of your bathroom (not to mention, make it more functional too!). Add a new hand faucet and a rain shower panel too if your budget allows for them.

Most bathrooms are dull and drab. The tiles look old, the floor looks tired and the walls lacklustre. The easiest way to inject some colour is with a selection of choice bathroom linen and bath accessories. Pick an accent colour and repeat it with your bathroom accessories – the soap dispenser, soap dish, toothbrush holder etc, as well as your bath linen – the hand towels, bath towels and robes.
Take it one step ahead and add a plush rug to the dry zone. Not only will it cover some of that old ugly flooring, it will also instantly add a plush, warm feel to the bathroom. You also don’t have to worry about stepping on a cold floor post your shower, ever again!

Most of us ignore shower curtains. We either don’t have them, or they don’t match anything else in the room. Change that right away! Match the shower curtain to the tiles or the paint of your bathroom, keeping it in sync with the colour theme you selected earlier. It’s that simple!

Want to create some drama? How about turning the sink area into an eclectic accent? Choose colourful backsplash tiles, paint the wall behind the sink a bright & bold colour, or simply add designer hanging shelves beside the sink to create a whole new look. In fact, changing your mirror into something funkier will also do the trick!

Hate all that clutter in your bathroom but don’t have a way to build more cabinets? Get creative with bathroom storage with colourful baskets, floating shelves and cute cubbies.

The last bit – add a touch of character. Whether you do it with a statement mirror, a vintage stool that doubles as your towel holder, or by adding a few indoor plants or flowers, give your bathroom a character of its own.
