In most cases, a total bathroom renovation requires time and money if you want to achieve your desired look. Extensive renovations could require tough jobs like relaying pipework, rewiring electrics and laying a new floor - but sometimes, all a bathroom needs is a makeover to make it appear as good as new.

When it comes to redesigning your bathroom, the smallest things can make a big difference, and sometimes they can change the look without the need to alter the bathroom layout. If you’re looking to renovate the bathroom on a budget, these manageable tweaks can easily be made to help redesign a bathroom without changing its current layout.

Install a feature wall

Say goodbye to paint, and this time round install bathroom wall panels to create a stunning bathroom feature wall. Textured wall panels are a great way to draw attention to a specific area of the bathroom - whether it's behind the bath, around the shower, or even behind the sinks. To install, simply glue the panels over your existing wall covering - there is no need to remove tiles to get started. You can also experiment with wallpaper to create the perfect upscale bathroom look.

Lay waterproof bathroom flooring

One of the biggest flaws with popular bathroom flooring options is the peeling of laminate or the mouldy grout you often find in between tiles. To combat any of these potential issues, it could be in your best interest to invest in affordable waterproof bathroom flooring. Not only do surfaces of this kind help you cut time on some of the more difficult bathroom cleaning tasks, but they come in an array of designs and colours allowing you to complement your bathroom features and fixtures.

Buy a shower screen

Shower curtains are perfect for privacy but can be a nuisance when it comes to cleaning. An old grotty shower curtain can sometimes become a lost cause and impossible to clean, so due to the grimy effect it can give your bathroom. To opt for a sleeker look, choose a new glass shower screen. These come in all shapes and sizes, and can have frosting for privacy too. They're a lot easier to clean and more modern than shower curtains - a great bathroom update solution.

Paint old features

When it comes to ageing bathroom fixtures, there are a few clever ways you can rejuvenate them. If their colour is beginning to fade, go ahead and give them a fresh lick of paint, as this can be enough to make them look as good as new. When you opt to use anti-mould paint, you can prevent even further damage to your bathroom fixtures and features. This painting option is available in many colours, so you can keep up-to-date with all the latest trends.

Purchase a plant

To bring a bit of life to your bathroom, purchase a small plant to place on top of your vanity cabinet or other fixtures. A plant will give your bathroom a unique and original appearance, but more importantly, it can help you naturally dehumidify your bathroom after you’ve indulged in a shower or bath. Now we’re in the full swing of spring, it’s the perfect time to redesign a bathroom. With the advice we’ve provided, you can now make some simple tweaks to give your bathroom a whole new look with little money spent or effort made.
