The bathroom is an integral part of any household, and is often used as a place for reflection, meditation and rejuvenation after a long day. One way to ensure your wind-down session is as relaxing as possible is to reflect this mood in your bathroom’s decor. However, updating your bathroom doesn’t have to break the bank- installing new stone benchtops isn’t always a necessity! In this week’s article, we’ve put together a list of budget-friendly options for your bathroom.
Update your fixtures
While it may seem simple, changing your fixtures can make a massive difference to the look and feel of your bathroom. From modern, to bohemian, to classic- there are so many options available to suit your taste and budget. As a simple, cost effective option, updating your fixtures can help to give your bathroom’s aesthetic an instant lift.
Replace your lighting
It’s not secret that harsh lighting can make an environment so much more stressful, so opting for a softer lighting alternative can really alter the mood of your bathroom. By avoiding fluorescent, cold light bulbs that appear yellow-toned, your space will benefit from more natural lighting options. You can also update your lighting fixtures with something modern and minimal, or dramatic and Art Deco-inspired, depending on your taste. Lighting is incredibly important when creating a space to relax.
Restore your existing appliances
Updating your bathroom doesn’t always mean switching to something brand new. For example, if your bathtub is looking a little worse for wear, consider spray paint to fix discolouration around the outside of the tub. By simply adding a new coat of paint, your bathtub will appear renewed, without having to go over your budget.
If the ideas listed above require more time and effort than you’re willing to put, simply colour coordinating the accents of your bathroom such as the towels, shower curtain and soap dispensers can lift the mood of your bathroom entirely. You can also consider some greenery, for an instant, natural boost. But if you’re looking for a complete overhaul, Stone Design Group source beautiful marble or granite stone benchtops for your bathroom.
