With the popularity of kitchen islands, it's logical that the concept is moving to the bathroom. If the square footage of your bathroom is big enough, this is an elegant and very functional option. Not only is the style of this island very chic, it provides a vanity space for applying makeup, donning jewelry or styling your hair. On the other side is the basin. No more leaning over the sink to get close to the mirror! This wonderful design also includes a free-standing tub and a fireplace — the ultimate bathroom luxury. Fans of more traditional bathroom arrangements will like this one, also from American Standard. A corner shower with a partial glass wall, toilet with a tank, and single basin vanity comprise this tiled bathroom. Any of these elements would be easy to incorporate into an existing bathroom for an instant design refresh.
When it comes to decorating, specialist tile paints can give you a new look without the hassle and expense of retiling. Alternatively, consider using board panels – waterproof boards that can be easily secured to the bathroom wall. They come in plain or patterned designs, and some even give a tile effect. If most of the walls are tiled but some surfaces are painted, simply changing the colour of the paint can achieve a whole new look. And because of the relatively small amount of wall you have to paint, it will take less time and money than redecorating an untiled room. Do make sure you buy paint that's suitable for bathrooms though – ideally, you want to go for an anti-mould, gloss paint. After this, it is a matter of accessorising. Consider buying new curtains or blinds, perhaps adding a new shower curtain or panel, or even putting down a new floor (vinyl's cheapest).
