Check that the screen has a tight, robust seal where it meets the bath to prevent leaks. Well-made, durable trimming and fittings are advisable, especially if you’re choosing a bifold model that will be regularly pushed back to allow access to the bath.
If you do plan to change your layout, measure your bathroom carefully. Note the position of doors windows and any pipes. It might help to draw an outline on graph paper, or use an online design tool.
New printing processes can create highly realistic interpretations of natural stone, marble and wood on ceramic tiles, so you can save hundreds on the cost of tiling of your bathroom without sacrificing the overall look. Using mosaic tiling is also a great option: it’s on trend, but also cost effective, as you don’t need to use much of it. Cut sheets in half or use fine strips between larger plain tiles to create vertical features behind a basin or horizontally around a bath.
Give your bathroom a new lease of life on a budget with wallpaper. From realistic tile designs to coastal seascapes, freshen up your space and create interest with one of these fabulous feature wallpaper designs. Here we pick the best bathroom wallpapers to suit all tastes and budgets. Follow manufacturers’ guideline for putting up wallpaper and use the recommended paste where possible. Many papers are now designed so you can paste the wall rather than the paper, making them much easier to hang. The best thing you can do to ensure a wallpaper’s longevity in a bathroom is to avoid hanging it in areas that come into direct contact with water. Finally, make use of an extractor fan (or fit one if you don’t have one), and turn it on as soon as possible to whisk away excess moisture.
