If you’re quickly growing tired of dreary beige walls, that ancient cracked mirror and a lack of storage space, it may be time for a refreshing bathroom makeover at home. Whether you plan to embrace a hint of colour with an accent wall or add gleaming chrome fixtures, here’s our guide to revamping your bathroom this winter.

1) Add a bright accent wall for a colourful contrast: While a tight budget may be preventing you from creating your dream bathroom with a spa inspired design, a pop of colour can help breathe new life into your space. Try a burnt orange, deep blue or pale green accent wall as a trendy upgrade from an understated white shade. If you’re aiming for a statement colour, a rich marsala wall paired with white décor brings Pantone’s Colour of the Year into your bathroom.

2) Create space for an endless collection of cosmetics with a sleek shelving unit: If your collection of lotions and hair products has taken over a cramped bathroom, adding a modern shelf is a quick alternative to remodelling the entire area. For a sophisticated touch and extra storage, a dainty metal shelving unit can make the most out of a tiny space.

3) Add a graceful vintage inspired bathtub for a stylish décor statement: While your goal may be to update your bathroom, a step back in time with vintage inspiration is also a smart décor move. To offer your space a burst of unique character, try replacing that clinical and dull white tub with a chic claw foot bathtub.

4) Bring a polished look to your bathroom with an updated faucet: Of course, a rusty faucet on a bathroom sink adds an unwelcoming and aged look to any space. Bring your bathroom back to its usual shining glory, by replacing an old faucet with a chic chrome or classic polished brass fixture.

5) Revamp dull bathroom floors with vivid statement tiles: According to Houzz.com, the bathroom décor trend of statement tile floors is set to make a splash in 2015. Embrace the look of an artsy neutral pattern, or add a deep blue patterned tile floor for a colourful vibe during that blissful bubble bath in your new claw foot tub.
