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!

Sink duty

In­vest in a brand-new van­ity for fab, room­chang­ing re­sults.

Mir­ror, mir­ror Change up your old, rusty mir­ror for some­thing clean and bright.
