The radio alarm clicks on and wakes you up. It is seven a.m. and the news comes on. After listening to the announcer telling you about the increasing economic gloom settling over the land you trudge into your en-suite.
As you look around your mini-bathroom you know that it needs refreshing but money is tight. Here are some ideas on how you can watch the pennies and transform your bathroom.
Get a mirror cabinet
When you have a limited budget and limited space you need multi-use items that can do two things at once. For instance, mirrored cabinets that contain clutter and reflect faces will help.
In a small space the mirror will reflect light around the room making it appear larger than it is.
Get coloured soaps
An easy way to add a splash of colour to your en-suite is to get some coloured soaps. If they are placed on the basin and in the shower they will brighten up your bathroom without breaking the bank.
Get big tiles
Large tiles make a small bathroom look larger. It may seem odd as you would have thought that they would dwarf the room and make it appear smaller.
If you use small tiles it means that you will have more grout lines and when they are placed in an en-suite this can look unappealing. Obviously, by going for large tiles you will need fewer to fill the space.
Lotions, balms, fancy shampoos and shower gels will give your en-suite that spa-like feel that will make your little haven feel special. Add some quality coloured flannels and fluffy towels to give it that extra bit of class and upmarket style.
Get some flowers
This is such a simple idea but flowers bring any room to life and they will add a bit of natural exuberance to your bathroom. Go for bright blossoms to enliven your en-suite.
Get a heated towel rail
In a small space you may not have the space for a radiator so a heated towel rail adds a bit of contemporary style as well as heat and saves space.
You can also hang your fluffy towels on them to make your room appear more chic.
Get a jewellery stand
Instant sparkle can be added to your en-suite by hanging your necklaces and bracelets on a jewellery stand placed on your windowsill.
By applying these ideas you will have a bright and natural en-suite that will improve your mood no matter how gloomy the news.
