James shows how to maximise a bathroom makeover.
IF YOU’VE GOT enough budget for a bathroom makeover, but not enough for a complete reno, here are some ideas on where you can spend your cash to make the biggest difference.
CHANGE YOUR TAPS
You’ll be amazed at the difference shiny and new tapware can make!
It’s also one of the easiest things to update in any bathroom, whether you DIY or hire a handyman for an hour. Remember that without altering the plumbing, you will be replacing like with like: if you have a three-piece tap set, then look to a brand-new range in the same set of three.
INSTALL A NEW MIRROR
Your bathroom mirror may be looking worse for wear. Replacing it can be a cost-effective way to give the room a new look, and valuable additional storage. Try a simple frameless mirror with or without a bevelled edge, or install a wall-mounted mirror cabinet.
REPLACE THE VANITY
Is your vanity looking tired, old and water damaged? Install a new offthe-shelf model that includes a sink. It may cost a few hundred dollars, but it can make a space appear cleaner and brighter, and clever new designs can also help save space. You can achieve a dramatic result so it works out to be a great investment.
Shiny and new You’d be surprised at how easy it is to change your taps!
