If you're not sure you can afford an entirely new bathroom, there are ways to give your existing one a fresh new look on a budget and without replacing the sanitary ware (the toilet, bath, sink and shower). First, you'll need to do a thorough clean. If the grouting is mouldy, try using a specialist cleaning product, available from supermarkets and DIY stores. If that doesn't work, buy an anti-mould grout-reviving pen, which you can get in black or white depending on the colour of your grouting. If you choose to redo the grouting altogether, use a sealer that will help prevent staining and mould growth in the future. To help prevent the mould coming back, try to leave the bathroom window open after showering or, if there isn't a window, install an extractor fan and leave the door open when you leave the room. If you are lucky enough to have a cast-iron bath but the ceramic covering has started to crack, consider buying a resurfacing kit or hiring someone to do a professional job for you, rather than replacing it. When you come to sell your home, buyers tend to rate period features.
Minimal in design and only slightly asymmetrical, the Desco tubs designed by Vittorio Longheu are not only very stylish but also very precious, keeping alive the finest and most sophisticated Italian handcrafting tradition. Eclipse is an egg-shaped freestanding tub designed by Marco di Paolo for antoniolupi. It's designed to be stylish, versatile, sophisticated as well as ergonomic and practical. A small storage shelf is seamlessly integrated into the continuous form of the tub, becoming a very practical feature which makes total sense and complements the design perfectly. What could be more poetic than a bathtub carved by water? On that note, we present to you the Epoque tub which is made out of a block of Amazzone stone carved with water. Its form and design are simple, fluid and sculptural with an emphasis on simplicity and contemporary elegance but also on the natural qualities of the material used.
Stack floating shelves to add storage in a fashionable way. Colorful storage ladders showcase personality and are a great place to store containers. Sink skirts add flair and hide cleaning products. Wooden crates can be stacked, drilled into the wall or placed on the ground for accessible storage. Functionality is key for a small bathroom. Small rooms can easily lead to unwanted clutter, so make sure you're adding only design elements that are functional. Don't add knick-knacks or objects that don't serve a purpose. Store cotton balls and swabs in glass jars on floating shelves. Install a hamper under the sink. Minimize counter space by storing (rather than displaying) personal products. Add stackable baskets underneath cabinets and above washer/dryer units.
