When it comes to redecorating a bathroom, a number of people focus purely on the larger fixtures and fittings, such as showers and bathroom suites. However, smaller items deserve just as much consideration and can help to improve the overall appearance and design of a bathroom on an affordable budget.
The problem is that when redecorating a bathroom, it is incredibly easy to concentrate only on the larger fixtures. This is because these are the items which most people think of when they hear the word ‘bathroom’ and they therefore neglect some of the other important features.
In order to make sure you don’t make this mistake when you are redecorating your bathroom, we have put together the top three overlooked bathroom items:
Bathroom taps are perhaps one of the most crucial accessories to any bathroom. With the capability to transform the entire appearance of any bathroom, taps can be replaced and changed to improve the look of any bathroom.
Far too many people consider replacing their entire bathroom suite because it looks ‘outdated’ when they could simply change this one fitting. Bathroom taps are available in a range of designs, from traditional cross head handles to those with more modern lever styled handles. This means that regardless of the style or design of your bathroom and home, there will always be an appropriately styled tap.
Rails and Radiators
Perhaps the most overlooked accessories within a bathroom are rails and radiators. Many people do not consider updating or replacing their radiators even though the old fashioned designs make their bathroom look more like a museum.
Modern radiator designs combine style with functionality in order to provide a fixture that emits both warmth and elegance. For those reluctant to replace the entire radiator, cabinets can be purchased or made to make the fixture look more attractive.
Radiators can also be designed as towel rails in order to provide two functions without one item. Towel rails are an essential feature of any bathroom and chrome designs are perhaps the most classically appealing.
The main things that people think of when it comes to bathrooms are suites, showers and toilets. This means that, unfortunately, the lowly bathroom basin can sometimes be overlooked. Bathroom basins are a vital component of any bathroom and can be stylishly designed in order to be aesthetically pleasing.
Modern bathroom basins are often combined with cabinets in order to make this feature even more practical. These can feature larger, more modern looking wash basins for increased aesthetic designs.
Other smaller elements which are often overlooked are items such as ornaments and even vital components like shower trays. Many people opt to fit a separate shower enclosure within their bathrooms but fail to appreciate the range of shower trays which are on offer. These are either high or low sided – depending on whether there is exposed piping which needs to be disguised – and are typically constructed from either stone or resin.
