Replacing the mirror and/or door handles can also make a difference, as can seemingly small touches such as the hand towels. If you're on a budget but want to do more-serious work, for example replacing fittings and fixtures, we would only advise DIY if you know what you're doing, or you could end up having to pay more to get things fixed than you would have if you'd hired a professional in the first place. Always check that what you're doing complies with current building regulations. If you decide to hire a professional to fit the bathroom you have chosen, get quotes from three suppliers. If the retailer you're buying your bathroom or fittings from offers to fit it too, compare the installation costs on offer to those of another local fitter – 42% of people in our survey found their bathroom installer themselves as opposed to 30% who used an installer from the company they bought the bathroom from. 9% of those who found and used their own installer did so because the quote they got was cheaper.
Which colour to use in my bathroom? Before making irrational decisions with towels and floor mats, you should be aware of what colours you want for the larger elements in your bathroom. Don't forget that the colour you choose will affect the overall ambience and feeling in the space. White is the go-to colour for most homeowners as it can be combined with other colours to create different effects. Combined with blue, it will house an adventurous underwater flair, whereas if combined with black, it can create a dramatic and romantic appeal. Also, you must take note of the amount, or lack thereof, of natural light that penetrates the space, as in the end, this will decide the colour scheme of your bathroom. As a general rule of thumb, dark or bright colours should not be used in small bathrooms, with the exception of small accessories.
What are some ideas for bathroom walls and floors? Floor to ceiling tiles in a bathroom have gained popularity in recent years because they are easy to clean and maintain, unlike paint, which needs to be refreshed as the years roll on. In terms of flooring, tiles aren't the only option these days. Wood and concrete are charming and easy to maintain, and give off a totally different vibe. Concrete is perfect for those who want a bathroom that is at the height of minimalist design, whereas wood is better suited to a more classic, rustic theme. Both of these flooring types can be translated into the other rooms of the house, too. Bathroom wallpaper has also made a big comeback! There are now many wallpaper coverings available that can withstand the humid and wet conditions of a bathroom. Get inspired with colours to use from browsing through our photos of bathroom ideas.
