Personalise your bathroom without changing your suite

Add character to your bathroom with minimal cost (and effort!)

If tackling that bathroom has been at the top of your to do list for some time but you don't have the funds, we've found you a few ways to transform the look of your bathroom without scrapping the suite...

Mirror, mirror on the wall

Adding a mirror may seem like a small step but if you get it right, you can create a really striking feature. If you've got the wall space, choose a large ornate mirror - not only will this look stunning but it will also reflect light and make the room feel larger.

Luxurious lighting

Your bathroom suite might be a bit lack-lustre but some luxurious lighting will go a long way to creating an opulent ambiance. Add some glamour with a chandelier or candelabra. Bath time will never be the same again...

Wonderful wallpaper

Who says you can't have wallpaper in the bathroom? If you're not keen on
wall-to-wall tiling and have been struggling to put your stamp on your
space, consider a fun wallpaper to bring your personality into the

Accessories are key

We've said it before and we'll say it again - a few well-chosen accessories can go a long way. Choose a colour scheme and pick out a few items that will work well in your bathroom - candles, glass jars and pretty toiletries grouped together will look just lovely.

Say it with symmetry

Creating a symmetrical sink area in your bathroom with instantly add that boutique hotel vibe. Two towels, two mirrors, two toothbrush holders... yeh, you get the idea.

Simple storage

Adding a freestanding storage unit to your bathroom will serve two purposes - you'll have a bit of extra space for all those essentials and, if you choose something fabulous, you can create a pretty (and cost effective) feature. We love how this set of vintage drawers have been painted a bold shade to set off the colour scheme.
