So your wondering what a bathroom livener is?? Well its a cost effective way to pimp up your bathroom without spending a ton of cash, Most clients are on the edge of bathroom renovation project but it could be 6 -12 months in the future and one of the client questions we answer allot is;

There’s nothing wrong with my bathroom; in fact, you still adore the freestanding bath, basin or beautiful lighting but what can I do to freshen it up? 

Heres my top 3 tips for refreshing up your bathroom, shower room or cloakroom space. The major bathroom renovation can wait we are looking a colourful new shower curtain, handy wire rack or fresh coat of paint.

Re grout! White will always look fresh but my preference is light grey, if you have one colour tiles it really makes them pop. Which is exactly what I did on the powder room project noted below, we used the grey group to make the accentuate the herringbone tile pattern against the blush pink tile and crazy sanderson splatter wallpaper. winning combo!

Paint the tiles, I’ve used tile paint as few times & it works a treat, just make sure you prime the tile & lightly sand after each coat. 3/4 coats depending on the depth of color you would like.

And finally flooring, vinyl/lino is a dirty word to some but let me tell you it’s amazing as a short term “livener” for bathrooms. For as little as £40 your bathroom will take on a whole new perspective. My favorite brand for vinyl the moment are Atra flooring, they have geometric patterns, morrocan inspired tile prints, art deco, wood flooring effect and a vast amount of stone imitations. Definalty worth a look and such good value for money.
