New Year Bathroom Makeover Ideas

As we head into a new year, it might be time to think about giving your bathroom a little sprucing up for 2018.

Getting stuck in to a new project is a great way to kick off your year, so why not give your bathroom a makeover this January? Whether you’ve got the budget to go for a full renovation or you’re just looking for a few simple ideas to refresh the space, we’re here to help.


You may not have the budget or the time for a full renovation, but you could easily replace one of the individual units with something more modern to give the room a facelift. An elegant freestanding bath or a wall-hung toilet would be a great addition without too much upheaval, and one statement piece can really make a dramatic difference.


A really simple and cost-effective way to update your bathroom is to replace the fittings. Replacing out-dated taps and showerheads with modern, shiny chrome fittings will create a modern look, or try antique mixer taps for a vintage look. This can usually be done yourself and the range of styles available means you can create a unique space. 


Adding in new bathroom tiles is a great DIY project, especially if you’re the more creative type. Big, bold coloured or monochrome tiles on the walls or the floors will really make a statement. If you’re really feeling creative, you could create a mosaic feature with small coloured tiles for a more eclectic look.


If you aren’t up for tiling, why not try giving the walls a fresh lick of paint? Whether you stick with neutrals or go for a bold feature wall in a bright colour, painting your bathroom walls is a cheap and easy way to breathe new life into the room.

Forget New Year, New You, go for a new bathroom instead! Don’t be afraid to experiment with colours and styles, and remember to accessorise your bathroom with co-ordinating linens too. Happy New Year!
