Neale Whitaker shares some exclusive tips on how you can give your bathroom a freshen up, on a budget.
If you want to give your bathroom an update, it doesn't have to cost the earth. Neale Whitaker shares his top hacks for simple and cost-effective things you can do to makeover this space.
"Updating a bathroom can be an expensive business and sometimes we don't want that and just want a refresh so there are ways of doing that," he explains.
Neale says to pay attention to the smaller items you can easily swap out.
"Replacing the towels and giving yourself a whole new set can make a world of difference," he tells. "It's noticing these types of cost-effective solutions that you can change simply."
He also suggests painting over your existing tiles to change the look and feel of the bathroom - you can get a professional in or do a DIY job.
For a few more dollars, you can also consider changing the tapware.
"There's never been so much choice as there is now," Neale says. "Have a look at the new brushed metal surfaces (gun metal is my particular favourite), but there are plenty of black options around as well that will have a transformative effect."
Neale also says to consider getting rid of your shower screen if it's outdated. "Think about removing your showerscreen and creating a wet room environment," he tells.
Also, don't forget the power of adding a bit of green to the room via some great indoor plants.
If you can really splurge a bit, Neale advises adding a skylight to add a brightness and lightness to the space.
"See how much that changes everything around," he adds.
