Refresh your bathroom for under $1,000 with these tips from Wesley Sinclair of Highgrove Bathrooms.
Taps, showerheads, toilet roll holders, shelving, and even your vanity are easily swapped. You don’t have to undergo a full renovation to assemble a theme for your bathroom. Consider matching shower heads, tapware and any metal elements in the space.
Basins and countertops
Switching out key pieces such as the bathroom vanity is a sure-fire way to enhance your bathroom aesthetic. Changing up your basin or even the material of the countertop will drastically change the appearance of your bathroom, without the added price tag of some of the more expensive renovation options, such as repainting, tiling or installing a new shower frame. There are numerous materials to choose from, including granite, quartz, marble or timber – but concrete is our pick for 2019 thanks to its industrial feel and versatility.
Mood lighting is transformative for any space. It’s what gives the room a boutique, luxury look, elevating it far beyond a functional room that we wash in. Incorporating mood lighting doesn’t have to be a major project. It can be as simple as lodging a luxe LED mirror above your vanity. Good bathroom design always includes consideration for proper lighting at the mirror, with both functionality and aesthetic in mind.
TOP TIP: Wesley says you can undertake a complete bathroom overhaul for less than $1,000 by focusing on changes you can make yourself or jobs that would require very little work from an experienced plumber.
