Replace the Curtains

There are several means, and choices that can be adopted to save a lot of money to impart your bathroom with a modern stunning look, with minor changes. Let’s take the example of a shower for the sake of the argument. If you have in your bathroom, traditional shower curtains made of plastic, you can replace these old styled curtains with solid glass doors, which are more durable and more stylish, as well. This simple yet elegant replacement gives you a sense of the bigger space. It’s a functional alternative, as it is not only easily cleaned but also wallet-friendly. Smart decisions such as above can help you in the achievement of your desires and longings and at the same time this can help you in providing value to your money. So before you chose to install many expensive spa baths, have a thorough look around your bathroom to consider the improvisations and possible improvements in your existing systems and circumstances.

Vanities & Cabinets

Likewise, very simple steps and choices for your bathroom vanity or cabinet can work a lot of wonders for you. Here is what you need to do in this aspect. You can buy some sand papers, paint, paint remover, and varnish. Now you can use paint remover to strip off the old paint that has lost its shine. After sanding your cabinet, paint it in the color of your choice and finally apply the varnish. Viola!!! You have a brand-new cabinet looking very attractive and ready for your use at a fraction of the cost or money that you might incur to buy another cabinet to replace the older.

Be clear about the desired usage and pattern of the bathroom. For example, if you have some children in your family, who would tend to splash water all around, it will be a wiser decision to go for durable building material such as ceramic materials or acrylics. Instead of using steel or cast Iron, you can choose for stone cast resin weaved with acrylic. This would not only provide greater durability and solidness but also better scratch resistance.


Space is a matter of visual perception of mind. By simple rearrangement, you can provide a sense of more spaciousness in the same area. For example, fitting a corner bath in the corner of the bathroom frees up a lot of space in the middle region of your bathroom. It gives in real terms, not only a smart aesthetic sense, but it is also a smart bargain.

Ventilation is another important requirement in a bathroom, particularly for bathrooms that are in frequent and common use.
