If you are planning to renovate or update your bathroom in the near future, here are some inspiring bathroom makeovers.

 

To create a spa-like feel, added fittings include a soaker tub, a frameless shower enclosure, a new toilet and luxurious finishes including marble, glass mosaic tiles and a crystal chandelier. A new skylight also helps illuminate the many amenities in this divine bathroom.

If your shower is till bricked off, think about installing glass panels, or glass blocks, to create a more inviting space.

On the wall across from the shower is a chic double vanity comprising of dark wood cabinetry topped with a white quartz countertop, topped off with two very tall mirrors and two modern polished stainless steel basins with funky wall-mounted spout faucets.

Depending on your budget, there are a number of products that can be used to update a bathroom.

Accessories and bathroom ware in modern design lines and tiles in earthy tones can fashionably transform a dreary-looking bathroom and bring it in line with current trends.

If you have big bucks to blow on a complete new look and layout you may want to consider one or two key pieces and stand-out design elements. However, it is possible to update a bathroom that’s in desperate need of a make-over on a shoestring budget.

For those bigger budget projects consider these items...

• Retile the entire bathroom with a neutral colour ceramic or porcelain tile and tile right up to the ceiling for easy maintenance.

• Include a column of colourful mosaics or sandstone cladding to create a feature wall

• Add beautiful listelli borders as a finishing touch to the walls.

• Invest in an impressive-looking free-standing or spa-bath to make a statement.

• In a big bathroom an double vanity could be your focal point. Make sure to round off with a matching mirror for extra flair.

• Install under-floor heating and a heated towel rail for the ultimate luxury of warm feet and towels during the cold winter months.

 

Items that won't blow your budget...

• Taps, mixers and a shower rose in modern design lines instantly transform a tired looking bathroom.

• Glass or natural stone mosaics laid either horizontally or vertically as a border in-between neutral tiles. The border can be a single row of tiles or a couple of rows, depending on your budget.

• Bathroom ware such as a new toilet, basin and vanity in current designs will immediately update the look.

Affordable items that can make a difference:

• Install a glass shelf to display an eye-catching vase or pamper goodies.

• Glass shelves are fairly inexpensive and easy to install yourself.

• A stylish mirror above the basin reflects light and makes the bathroom appear bigger.

• If the tiles are outdated and extend halfway up the wall, consider a border in glass mosaics to uplift the look and add a modern touch.

• Shop for a secondhand cabinet and make your own unique bathroom vanity.
