Redecorating your bathroom on a budget

Smartening up your bathroom need not cost a fortune. As long as the basics are in place, a few reasonably inexpensive accessories can do wonders to give your bathroom an atmosphere of restrained luxury and comfort.

Towels make a huge difference. Buy good quality plush or deep cotton hand and body towels. Choose the colours carefully, to match the paintwork in your bathroom. Try contrasting shades to make the towels a design feature in themselves.

If your bathroom is in a brisk spa-like white, have a look at shower screens. These now come in a fantastic range of styles and can be used to offset any colour bath or wall.

Flooring is expensive and if you are on a limited budget you may decide that a complete renovation is unaffordable. Instead, have a look at rugs and bathmats. Like shower curtains, a huge range of prints, colours and fabrics are readily available, often at bargain prices. Just be sure to buy fully washable items.

Lighting is another way to add atmosphere to your bathroom. If you already have recessed lighting why not experiment with a chandelier or even a lantern? These items can be picked up at very affordable prices.

Finally, why not replace that outdated vanity unit with an interesting bathroom mirror? They make a great focal point for any bathroom and frames come in all manner of shapes and sizes. Try flea markets for real bargains.
