Easy bathroom transformations – 10 of the best

Completely redesigning a bathroom can take a lot of time and be an expensive undertaking. But to dramatically change the look of your bathroom, you don’t necessarily need to start again.

A few clever tricks and tips from our experts could help you to transform your bathroom instantly and with very little effort. Taking a bathroom from drab to fab is really as easy as adding a wall of patterned paper, a fresh coat of paint or a few soft-furnishings. A brand new bathroom is all in the details!

Give your plain bathroom a shabby chic makeover with some feature wallpaper, a painted chair and a vintage table. Or why not simply pick a new colour scheme to lift your white bathroom and add in personal touches, such as a patterned screen and matching blind.

If you don’t have the time to redecorate, just update your bathroom with beautiful new accessories. Adding lanterns or candles to shelves and windowsills – even just placing them on the floor or the edge of the bath – will completely change the look of your bathroom. For spa-like zen, soft towels and matching slippers will overhaul your ordinary bathroom, creating a space you can’t wait to spend time in.

However you choose to transform your bathroom, there’s no doubt these ideas will give you inspiration to create a whole new look…
