You don’t have to spend a fortune to create a spa-like sanctuary. Here are a few budget-friendly bathroom updates worth trying…

No matter how big or small, here are some budget-friendly bathroom updates that will help you make the most of your bathroom:

Create an illusion of space

Mirrors help to make a room appear larger and create an illusion of space.

Hang a mirror above the basin or create a feature by grouping several mirrors of different shapes and sizes on one feature wall.


Don’t underestimate how simple changes, like a new set of towels, can improve a bathroom. Choose from cotton, Egyptian cotton, bamboo or Turkish cotton towels.

Add some personality by adding your favourite colourful bath accessories, décor and art.


Better than a bath mat

A bath mat does not have to be a shaggy little rectangle. The trend in bathroom design is to bring in a proper rug.

Choose rich colours to warm up the look of the room, but be sure to add a rug pad or rug tape to prevent the rug from slipping.

Finally, add life to a bathroom with low-maintenance plants, like moisture-loving ferns and orchids.
