Bathroom / February 11, 2018 / Esme Jean.
If you’re on a budget but want to do more-serious work, for example replacing fittings and fixtures, we would only advise DIY if you know what you’re doing, or you could end up having to pay more to get things fixed than you would have if you’d hired a professional in the first place. Only 9% of the 3,982 people we surveyed installed their bathroom themselves.
Options for wall-tile types include glass, ceramic or natural stone. There are matt or gloss tiles, and you can have small mosaic ones right through to large tiles, which can make a space-limited bathroom feel larger.
The bathroom is generally one of the smallest spaces in the house, but that doesn't mean it can't be luxurious, even on a budget. Small touches, such as expensive-looking tiles or taps, will have more impact in a small space and won't be too costly. For inspiration, flick through our gallery below for design ideas that will add a touch of luxury to any bathroom.
So, whether you're totally renovating your bathroom or sprucing it up with new furniture, it's important to ensure that the bathroom furniture you get will both suit your needs and stand the test of time.
