Inexpensive ways to upgrade your bathroom

With a little DIY savvy, there are plenty of ways you can update and refresh your bathroom. What’s great about this is that these methods don’t require you to hire a contractor and won't cost a fortune.

In just a few hours, you can give your bathroom a facelift with these tips and tricks.

Believe it or not, you can paint over grout. If you don't want to go through the hassle of removing and placing it, or ripping off and installing new tiles, a bit of acrylic craft paint can go a long way towards giving a bathroom a new look.

In this case, black paint can be applied over grout to create a contrast with plain white tiles. After painting, apply a grout sealer to protect the paint.

Good to know

Apply masking tape around the edge of the tiles before painting. If you don't, you’ll need to paint one line at a time and take care to wipe any smudges immediately.

The most expensive part of any bathroom renovation is relocating plumbing and electrical fixtures. If you leave the layout in place, it will be far easier and less costly to replace the sink and tub fixtures.

Even replacing old fashioned taps and fittings can make a big impact on updating and giving a bathroom a fresh, new look. Stores like Builders Warehouse offer a varied selection of fittings, ranging from affordable to more expensive imported items.

Before mounting new fixtures, pop into your local Prominent Paints and select the right paint for a bathroom, in a colour that enhances the space. Lighter colours will help to enlarge a small bathroom.

Finish off your new bathroom with colourful or patterned fabrics to add a new dimension to the room.
