Making over your bathroom can help you to make better use of the space you’ve got, and can help you juggle the morning and evening bathing routines with less fuss.
What’s more, a bathroom makeover can add significant value to your home! More about that later.
Luxury and functionality combined
Whilst it’s important for a bathroom to be functional (especially if you’ve got a growing family), these days, many home owners are looking for a bit of luxury.

Other bathroom makeover must-haves
Before you get started on any renovation, it’s important to consider the basics. For the bathroom, this means tiles, flooring, and walls. What colour scheme is your new bathroom going to follow? Are you going for a contemporary look, or something more traditional? How much have you got to spend, and what kind of space do you have to work with? Have you considered:
- Which tiles are you going to use, and where?
- Do you have a colour theme picked out?
- Do you need underfloor heating?
- Are heated towel rails a must-have?
