Five signs it’s time to refurbish your bathroom

It’s very easy to become complacent with your bathroom. When we see things every day, we don’t always notice how they really look. So this means it’s quite common not to realise it’s time to refurbish your bathroom! Let’s be honest – is your room in need of some TLC? Our experts have compiled a list of our top five signs that show it’s time to overhaul your en-suite. So, if they sound familiar, you know what to do…

  1. IT’S OUTDATED

Your bathroom is not a TARDIS. If stepping through the door takes you back in time to another decade, a revamp is in order. Think hard about your colour scheme, the style of your sanitaryware and your fixtures. Not many of us are still wandering around sporting the hairstyles and fashions we favoured in the 80s and 90s. So make sure your bathroom isn’t inadvertently from another era too.

Light, neutral colours, a pared-back design and a contemporary suite are sure-fire ways to give your bathroom a makeover. Why not make a serious style statement with a freestanding tub? We love the rimless, minimalist lines of our BC Designs Kurv Freestanding Bath. Pair it with our matching BC Designs Kurv Cian Solid Surface Basin for a seamless look. Finish things off with a simple, wall-hung toilet for a clean, uncluttered effect. Our Roper Rhodes Note 500mm Wall Hung WC & Soft Close Seat is a popular choice.

  1. IT’S BROKEN

Your bathroom décor might not be a disaster. But, if your taps are tatty, your grout is grubby and there’s no power in your shower, a revamp is in order. Put paid to dreaded drips with a state-of-the-art bath shower mixer, such as our Clearwater Sapphire by Britton. What’s more, it also has matching basin taps for a coordinated finish. You can instantly refurbish your bathroom if you get rid of any unsightly mould in your sealant. And, if you don’t already have one, install an extractor fan to improve air circulation. In addition, take advantage of the latest tech with a digital shower, such as our Crosswater Kai Pack 06 Digital Dual Outlet Shower Valve, Central Shower Head & Hand Shower.

  1. CHANGING CIRCUMSTANCES

If the pitter-patter of tiny feet are imminent, you may need to refurbish your bathroom to become more family-friendly. The opposite might be true if you’re about to be an empty-nester. Now’s the time to splash out on that fancy wetroom you’ve always wanted! Conversely, if you have mobility issues, consider introducing safety features such as grab bars, raised toilets and shower seats.

  1. YOU’RE ON THE MOVE

If you’re thinking of selling up, a new bathroom can well make or break the sale. In fact, it can even increase the value of your home so it’s a worthwhile investment. Steer clear of wild and wacky; keep things clean, classic and simple to appeal to as many potential buyers as possible.

  1. YOU’RE JUST NOT THAT INTO IT

We all go off things form time to time: certain dishes, a once-favourite outfit, music we no longer listen to. If spending time in your bathroom has become a chore and a bore, then it’s time to ring the changes. So picture your dream bathroom then make it a reality. Sometimes the smallest things, such as a double sink, decent lighting, or plenty of storage, can make a big difference. Make a list of what matters to you then prioritise it to transform your bathroom from passé to paradise.
