Size isn't everything!

Posted on Sep 06, 2013

Limited space doesn't have to limit creativity, so if you’ve decided to upgrade your tired looking bathroom don’t be concerned about size, after all it isn’t everything!

The bathroom is arguably the most unique room in the house and demands special requirements in terms of renovation and decoration. It is often difficult to style a bathroom using conventional everyday materials such as wallpaper, as it won't last for long due to high levels of moisture that come from daily baths and showers. If you're stuck for bathroom decoration ideas and inspiration there are always simple tricks that can rejuvenate a tired looking bathroom to a showpiece straight out of a catalogue.

Bathroom tiles are a common addition in most bathrooms, partly because they are effective when it comes to dealing with the moisture in the air and because they can be used inside the shower, on the walls and floor. Tiles are also extremely hardwearing making them ideal in the bathroom. Tiles don’t have to be plain and boring and can make walls come to life, as there is an endless selection of colours, sizes and textures to choose from. The drawback with tiling the bathroom is that they will need to be fitted by a professional, which may bite into a budget that you may have set yourself.

Taps might seem like quite an insignificant thing when it comes to the design of your bathroom but in actual fact changing your taps can make a big difference to the appearance of your bathroom. When you are on a budget, upgrading your bathroom taps can be a great way of updating your bathroom without the need to go all out with a complete bathroom refurbishment.

Whether you are completely redecorating and redesigning your bathroom or just wanting to give it a spruce of life, one aspect that needs to be covered regardless is your choice of taps. Putting the wrong style, colour or size taps on to a bath or basin can completely destroy the hard work you have put into the rest of the bathroom. However, choose the right taps and it will give you a high quality finish that you didn’t even realise was possible to achieve. Coordination and consistency throughout a bathroom, or any room for that matter is key and choosing the right tap is the final stage of that process. With freshly painted walls and tactically positioned mirrors in place, the taps are one of the last and most important stages to achieving your place of retreat, your sanctuary of relaxation.
