Creating a ‘wow’ bathroom can quickly drain your bank account: find out the secrets to transforming your bathroom on a budget!

Transforming the basics image

Less is more

A spectacular bathroom doesn’t have to have everything. Decide on the most important part of the room for you and then focus on that: do you want a modern hi-tech shower, a huge relaxing bath or an elegant wetroom?

A deliberately minimalist look can also result in a stunning bathroom with next to no work. An open plan wet room can give a modern, elegant touch, whilst a simple freestanding bath is a great timeless piece.

Create a focal point

Focusing on creating a stunning basin and sink area which commands attention from every angle, using interesting designs and shapes or prominently placing an impressive mirror or striking accessories can alter the bathroom’s overall look and be hugely improved. Just one high quality or designer piece placed correctly will turn your bathroom from ‘OK’ to ‘Wow’.

Update or replace?

If you don’t want to change all of your installations, it’s also easy to transform your bathroom through clever decoration. You could re-tile or add slabs of marble and granite (or less expensive lookalikes), and re-accessorise to quickly turn your bathroom into a modern masterpiece.

Adding wooden trims around the edge of your bath, sink or to cover up ugly water pipes will give a stylish look.
