Now, more than ever, we need to watch the pennies and save money.
Bank holidays are traditionally a time for DIY and thatâ€™s why Ideal Standard, a leading provider of innovative and design-driven bathroom solutions, is shareing some expert advice to help you save both money and time, doing up your bathroom this bank holiday.
This is the last bank holiday before the summer, so itâ€™s your last chance to make the most of the extra days to update your home.
Donâ€™t worry if you canâ€™t afford to totally redo your bathroom, most estate agents believe that a clean, minimal bathroom is what impresses and regardless of your budget, itâ€™s the finishing touches that give a bathroom a completely polished look and feel.
The good news is that simply updating furnishings and giving it a splash of paint, can make a world of difference not only to guests but, in the long run, to potential house buyers too.
Here are Ideal Standardâ€™s cheap, quick and easy fixes to instantly improve your bathroom:
- Add some accessories- 30 Mins – Mirrors – Ideal Standardâ€™s Concept range features a number of interchangeable mirror and splash-back panels that combine to give a really smooth, uncluttered line.
- Keep the areas around your toilet tidy with some nifty, discrete accessories.
- Installing a new shower screen – 60 minutes – Â Shower curtains are one of the most ageing statements in a bathroom, yet one of the simplest things to change.
Most bath and shower screens come with a hinged screen that is ready to fix to the wall, with sealing strips at the bottom already fitted.
- Add Storage – Half a day – Store your bathroom necessities in a handy under sink compartment, or behind a mirror; or have a separate wall or freestanding unit.
Ideal Standardâ€™s Concept range includes slow close dampeners, so doors shut without a bang and self-close mechanisms making drawers close with just a gentle push.
