When you buy a new house we know just how expensive it can be especially when all you want to do is steam off the hideous wallpaper, pull up those seen-better-days carpets and don’t even get us started on the what-were-they-thinking bathroom but sometimes you have to hold your horses and pay for the necessary bank drainers, we’re talking boilers, windows, doors soffits and fascias…. The list is endless. So to ease your dreary bathroom woes we thought it was high time we compiled a list of ways in which you can spruce up your bathroom on a budget.   bathroom greenery Try a touch of greenery Adding a hint of life to any lacklustre room especially a bathroom will always make it feel more lived in and somewhere you actually want to spend time. If you’ve got the space we love a tall plant with serious foliage game (palms are always a winner) or if your bathroom hasn’t quite got room to swing a cat then we can’t get enough of succulents, these short plants are pretty hardy too which is perfect for those who aren’t on top of their watering game. If you’re Sheffield based we love local florists Of The Wild and Swallows & Damsons or try Ruby Bloom if you’re in Leeds. Get the tiling look above with Mass Blanco and Bevelled Brick.   artwork in bathroom Hang some artwork Framed prints, photographs and memories don’t have to be the reserve of the living room and landing, try placing some of your favourite pieces of artwork in your bathroom and you’ll be surprised by just how much warmth and colour they bring to an often cold space. One of our favourite places to pick up frames inexpensively is IKEA and as for artwork you’ll be amazed by what you can pick up from places like Not On The High Street.     bathroom shelving Get smart with shelves Don’t ever underestimate the power of a well displayed and organised shelf, not only do they make your bathroom look bigger but they can rather handily store all your essentials too. We love mixing everything from greenery and fresh linens to brightly coloured trinkets and prettily packaged toiletries on our shelves, in fact this might just be our favourite way to spruce your bathroom on a budget. For inexpensive shelf updaters try H&M Home.   899 bathroom Think about a package deal If you have got a bit of money put to one side for bathroom renovations but want to stick to a budget then why not consider our £899 package deal perfect for first time buyers or purely for those who have other things they need to spend their money on. Our package includes 12m2 of our Romana tile range where there’s a choice of five plain coloured tiles and two patterned tiles, enough adhesive, grout and tile trim to complete the tiling job plus a basin, toilet with soft close seat and a shower.
