• Lifestyle – Tips to renew your bathroom

    This is a collaborative post with Click Basin, I have implored the talents of my sister-in-law to help me write this post.

    tips to renew your bathroomSo it’s time to renew your bathroom… but where do you begin?! First things first, decide the style you want. Is it a natural theme with bamboo and plants, is it a slick and ultra-modern style or a traditional style that you’re after. Once you have decided let the hours of searching for the right toilets, basins, baths and accessories begin!My current bathroom is only small and I need to fit a bath in it as I have a 3-year-old so a shower is not an option. So instead of compromising on this I looked into space-saving ideas.

    The bologna counter mounted white modern bathroom sink is a very tranquil looking bathroom sink similar to the ones spotted in posh spas. It is small so you could fit into a small downstairs toilet or in your main bathroom if it is small like mine giving you everything you need to make the room seem bigger and best part it isn’t taking up a lot of space. There are so many choices pondered over a couple of bathroom basins before deciding this was the style for me. I also considered a bamboo inspired bathroom with exposed wood and plants, a real natural feel so when I saw the cube solid oak narrow bathroom vanity with a square glass sink it became a strong contender.

    So now that I have found my sink it’s onto the toilet. The one I would go for is the heritage Blenheim low-level WC with chrome flush from Victorian plumbing. It looks very elegant and ties in with the posh spa theme I have going on. So now for a bath that ties in with my theme at a reasonable price. The Verona freestanding modern bath also from Victorian Plumbing is the one I would go for. It is very similar to the sink so it goes well with the theme and looks so luxurious.


    Now to accessorize, my job was made easy for me by the amount of choice on Clickbasin. I found the solid oak wall mounted mirror cabinet with side shelves which again adds a touch of class and is also useful to hide away those feminine products whilst showing off your posh body washes you got for Christmas. I would also add the 3 tier box solid oak bathroom storage stand caddy to again have some more space to store things I need like hand towels whilst still having the spa like feel. And last but certainly not least I found the Note 6 piece value chrome bathroom accessories set for just £24.99! It’s a bargain and it includes all of these; a robe hook, toothbrush holder & glass, toilet roll holder, towel holder & rail and a soap dish. This last touch is practical yet ties in the chrome from the toilet flush and the tap.

    All of these together create a sleek and elegant look and it all ties in with each other. You don’t want lots of random things so try gathering all the things you have shortlisted and see how they would look rather than just buying randomly or you will end up with a mismatch bathroom.

      The sink looks like something you can find in hotels and spas. I love the pure white color and the wood accents make it stand out even more.

      • January 17, 2016 / 8:31 am

        That’s what we loved about the sink because it’s something that hotels and spas using have

      • January 16, 2016 / 7:35 am

    27. January 16, 2016 / 2:45 am

      Great tips! Our bathroom could definitely use a little sprucing, and I think those chrome accessories would be perfect.

      • January 16, 2016 / 7:34 am

        I love the chrome accessories and though I can not do much to my current bathroom the accessories are something that I can do

      • January 16, 2016 / 7:32 am

        I am very glad to hear that Amber, good luck

      I wish my landlord would put that tub in my apartment. It’s amazing and so big compared to the one I have.

      • January 16, 2016 / 7:32 am

        I wish my landlord would do the same too. I currently have a shower only and I am so wishing for a tub

      • January 16, 2016 / 2:34 pm

        I couldn’t live without a tub, hot baths are what help me get through cold and wet days from my back injuries.

      • January 16, 2016 / 4:56 pm

        I love showers since I struggle to wake up the shower wakes me up but I miss having the option

    31. January 15, 2016 / 11:47 pm

      A bathroom makeover would be fabulous. I drool watching those shows on TV but don’t have the courage to take the plunge.

      • January 16, 2016 / 7:32 am

        I know what you mean it’s fabulous on tv but very different in real life

    32. January 15, 2016 / 9:43 pm

      We FINALLY removed a hideous bathroom vanity that has been in our house for five years. It was the first thing I wanted to swap out when we moved in but I never got around to it. Now we only got rid of it in order to sell our house! Sigh.

      • January 16, 2016 / 7:31 am

        I wish you good luck on selling your house, check out my tips on how to get the best price before your house evaluation and I hope it helps

    33. January 15, 2016 / 6:47 pm

      That is such a small sink. I would love to renew my bathroom, but space is limited in there and there’s not much room to expand it or do what I really want to do to it. I’d love to have a jetted hot tub in my bathroom.

      • January 15, 2016 / 8:40 pm

        Trying to make use of limited space then this sink is perfect

    34. January 15, 2016 / 5:10 pm

      I love this style of sink. It would mean no caulking. I want a new bathroom.

      • January 16, 2016 / 7:30 am

        Me too

    35. January 15, 2016 / 4:31 pm

      We just bought a house a few months back and we are slowly making it ours. I like the ideas that you mention in here for the bathroom. We do have a very small bathroom but we can incorporate some of these things

      • January 15, 2016 / 5:40 pm

        Congratulations Jeanette and hope you make some changes

    36. January 15, 2016 / 9:31 am

      My bathroom is in need of a huge makeover, it has been on my list of things that need to be done forever x

      • January 15, 2016 / 9:43 am

        Hahaha hope you get it done soon

    37. January 15, 2016 / 8:43 am

      I absolutely love the bath in this photo, if I redid a bathroom in a future house this is exactly the kind of thing i’d choose. x

      • January 15, 2016 / 8:45 am

        Thanks Rhian

    38. January 15, 2016 / 8:28 am

      Love this look! I’ve always dreamed of buying a house that needs some fixing up and this is the style bathroom I’d love, it’s modern meets vintage and it’s so me.

      • January 15, 2016 / 8:44 am
