Decorating Your Bathroom On A Budget

Decorating Your Bathroom….are you tired of the look of your existing bathroom?….is a bathroom makeover long overdue?.

When you are planning on decorating your bathroom, there are plenty of different ideas to consider. However, some of these will just not be possible…

Not all methods/materials will be suitable for decorating your bathroom use, whilst others will be far too expensive to consider. But don’t despair!

There are still lots of interesting possibilities to choose from that will not cost the earth.

Here are just a few great ideas for decorating your bathroom & giving it a whole new (and economical) lease of life –

• A great addition to any bathroom remodeling job is a heated towel rail, they not only dry your towels perfectly but also create a wonderful new source of heat for your bathroom, and don’t need to break the bank!. We will show you how to fit a heated towel rail exactly as a professional would.

• White tiles are often the least expensive of all to buy and you can actually use them to great effect… Use them to tile the entire room and then fit a pure white bathroom suite; this can all be off-set with stainless steel fixtures and fittings such as taps and towel rails. The overall effect will spacious, modern and clean.

• Most of us do like to be beside the seaside, so giving your bathroom a ‘coastal’ feel can be a really cool idea. An aqua-green shade will be ideal for your tiles and flooring, whilst bronze-coloured metal accessories will be great for conjuring-up images of buried treasure! And, as far as ornamentation goes, shells, crabs, coral and starfish will look just perfect on your walls and shelves.

• When you are choosing tiles for decorating your bathroom, purchase enough patterned ones to cover a quarter of the overall space. Fill three-quarters of each wall with plain tiles and use the ones with a design to finish off. When you have installed all of your tiles, you can paint the same pattern on a small portion of your bath panel or the pedestal on your sink. Calculating the number of wall tiles required is very important before you begin planning your designs.

• It is possible to apply a really attractive theme to your bathroom without breaking the bank. How about using black and lavender for instance? Pale lavender walls and a black sink, toilet and tub; black metal accessories are also easy to find. Once this is complete, you can add a few lavender-colour ornaments to the shelves. You could even use some lavender essential oil to scent the room!

• Try going for a ‘natural’ look in your bathroom by using off-white coloured tiles and adding some bamboo mats, shelves and nice cabinets.

. Or, if bamboo doesn’t float your rubber duck, then why not consider plain (but treated) wood when it comes to your accessories?

• Some people will be a little hesitant when it comes to using fully patterned tiles for the bathroom as they think it will end up being too overpowering; however, it doesn’t have to be! It may all seem like a bit of an assault on the senses, but a few off-white mats on the floor and neutral-colored fittings will all help to tone it down and to introduce a gentle ambiance to the room.

• You may like the idea of a contemporary-looking bathroom and this is perfectly achievable, even with a limited budget. Black wall tiles can often be found quite cheaply and they will look thoroughly modern when finished-off with steel fittings. A standard white sink, bathtub and toilet will prevent it from becoming too dark (or expensive!) and you will end up with plenty of clean and modern ‘lines’ in the room! Check out some of these cheap bathroom vanities for more ideas!.

• Have you ever fancied the idea of bathing beneath the open sky (but without making an exhibition of yourself)? If so, then why not consider painting the ceiling pale blue and adding a few fluffy white clouds? You can even choose pale blue wall tiles to add to the overall effect!

• Some people will prefer to have a more traditional, single colored style to their bathroom and there is nothing wrong with this; we don’t have to go with the latest looks! Plain, simple tiles can look really nice with a basic floor covering. And there are plenty of pleasant bathroom ornaments out there to sit on top of your shelves. Maybe a couple of houseplants would make a nice addition.

• Create a spa at home? With my budget? I can hear you now. But, if you’ll look again, you’ll see that spas are all about pampering and relaxation, not about the latest and greatest spa developments. Check out Create a spa at home on a budget for tips and ideas that will have you chomping at the bit to get started creating your own relaxing getaway.

• There are a range of mobility bathing products out on the market for less able-bodied people. You can bathe in comfort with one of the many walk in baths and shower units available from Mobility Plus, a UK based company serving the whole nation with excellent products and customer service.

With a little careful planning decorating your bathroom can yield beautiful results……bringing about a brand new room in your home…..all yours for just the cost of just a little imagination!, for lots more great tips check outbathroom decorating ideas.
