With the New Year well and truly underway, now is the perfect time to begin ticking off those small renovations jobs you had on your resolutions list. While a full-blown bathroom makeover – complete with deluxe spa – might be financially out of the question, there are plenty of small, budget-friendly changes that can be made to your bathroom to give the space a fresh new look for 2017.
With more than 20 years of experience in the plumbing industry, the team at RTF Plumbing are highly qualified when it comes to bathroom renovations. We work alongside our clients to help create the perfect renovation plan to suit their individual taste, budget and requirements. Here are our top five tips on a few small changes you can make to your bathroom to make it look brand new.
Update your basin
Installing a new basin can make a world of difference to the look at feel of your bathroom. Often one of the central features of the space, a new basin will help establish the style and feel you want to achieve. While this may cost slightly more than updating other, smaller fixtures around your bathroom, it’s one change that can make a big difference.
Shop around to find a style you’re happy with, remembering to consider the overall look you want for your bathroom, as well as pricing and practicality.
A new basin can act as a new focal point in your bathroom.
Modernise your fixtures
Small fixtures may not seem significant when it comes to your overall bathroom decor, but they can dramatically change the way your bathroom looks without blowing your budget. These can include light fixtures, basin faucets and towel racks, which can all be styled and tailored to suit your taste.
For a fresh and modern look, consider purchasing simply designed fixtures in silver or white. If you’re after a more vintage-feel or want to replicate the style of a country home, then fixtures in white, black or bronze that are slightly more ornate will help to achieve this look.
Let RTF Plumbing install your new fixtures for you
When updating your bathroom, don’t forget to consider the environment in your planning process. Low-flow toilets, basins, and shower heads will not only help you conserve water, but they’ll also save you money in the long run. Plus, water-saving shower heads and faucets often cost the same, if not less, than traditional ones. At RTF Plumbing our experienced professionals are able to install environmentally friendly plumbing quickly and efficiently, so you can start reaping the benefits.
It might seem like an obvious one, but a fresh coat of paint can really make the world of difference to your bathroom. Whether you decide to paint the walls of the room or simply an existing vanity or cupboard, this is one of the easiest and cost-effective ways to update your space.
Consider whether you would like to establish a new colour scheme, and don’t rule out the idea of adding a more vibrant feature wall, which can add excitement and flair.
A fresh coat of paint is a cheap way to add new life to your bathroom
If you have limited time and funds, installing an extravagant spa might not be a plausible option, no matter how much you’d love to recline in an enormous pimped-up spa bath. Instead, let the team from RTF Plumbing switch out your old showerhead for a large rain-style one. This will add that touch of luxury you’re looking for in your bathroom, without the added hefty price tag.
