Make sure the proper additive is mixed in with your paint color in order to keep it from getting mildewy and if you're using tile, look for stain-resistant grout (more expensive but worth the extra cost). White and off-white are the most popular bathroom color ideas and neutral colors also help make the space feel calm and fresh. Choosing a monochromatic color palette, where you base the whole color scheme off of one main color, is another popular option and will make the space feel bigger. Selecting the proper lighting in your bathroom is important because a light, bright room will feel bigger. Good lighting can transform the space and make all other design elements pop. Unless you're particularly savvy with electrical work, leave electrical projects to professionals unless you're just swapping out a fixture. In terms of efficiency, install LED lights. They use at least 75% less energy and last 25 times longer than incandescent lighting (and won't heat up the room).
But price clearly isn't the main driver for everyone – 49% of people who used their own installer did so simply because they prefer to and 21% did so because they always use the same tradesman. It's also worth thinking about whether it would be cheaper for your installer to get your bathroom for you, as some companies, such as Travis Perkins and Plumb Center, sell directly to trade, sometimes at cheaper prices. Electrical works, including the installation of lighting, fans, sockets or electric showers should be carried out by a Part P-registered electrician.

Once your new bathroom or en suite is complete, make sure you gain the relevant building regulations approval, including drainage, electrics and ventilation, and checking that any glass meets the required safety standards. You might need to prove that you've done this when you sell the house.
In addition to painting, there are other easy bathroom decor ideas such as refreshing the room's accessories like floor mats, toilet paper holders, soap dispensers and towels. Pricey items like custom floor patterns or countertop materials won't be as hard on your budget as they might in a kitchen because the space is much smaller.
