How to Update Your Bathroom Cheaply

Everyone is aware of the importance of the bathroom. It is a very private place that allows you to get ready to face the world in the morning but also to relax and unwind after a long day’s work in the evening. The bathroom is one of the rooms in the home that affords you the chance to reflect your own personality. This is easily achieved by the way you choose to decorate it and the types of bathroom furniture you decide to place in there.

Updating a bathroom with your unique touches is very simple and doesn't have to cost a lot of money. You might have just moved into a new place and want to make it your own or you are a little tired of your present look and want something fresh. If you are in any of these situations, you might think that you have to spend a great deal of money, but if you get a little creative you can achieve quite a lot with a small budget.

One of the main items in the bathroom is the bath tub. It gets used a lot, so it is inevitable that it will show its wear, no matter how on top of it you stay in cleaning it. After many years of usage, the tub can start to look old and worn out. What people normally do at this stage is rip out the existing bathroom, purchase a new one and install that. This costs a lot of money and there is a more economical way of extending the life of your bath. This procedure is called bath resurfacing and it involves re-coating the existing enamel of the bath, so that staining, chipped and rough enamel are eliminated. This makes the bath almost like new. It is not cheap as you will need to get professionals to do the job for you, but when you compare it to buying a new bath and getting it installed, it is a lot cheaper.

If you really want to get rid of your bath, then, how about replacing it with a walk in shower enclosure. This will have a dramatic effect on the look of the bathroom. Walk in enclosures look fantastic, are easy to access so are well suited to those who are less mobile. They are also ideal if you lead a busy life, as you just walk in and walk out.

Another way of updating the bathroom is by giving it a fresh coat of paint. It is amazing the effect a little paint can have. You can also change the shower curtains if you have them and match them to the paint colour. Accessories such as electric towel rails can also add a touch of class to any bathroom instantly. Not only will heated towel rails present you with warm towels but you can use them as design pieces in the bathroom.
