With spring creeping up on us quickly, it will soon be summer which means your bathroom could do with being spruced up.

During the summer, weather dependant, things start looking a lot brighter but if your bathroom looks old and tired, there are a few things you can do to bring it up to steam with the rest of the house. Summer means a lot of barbeques and family get-togethers which can mean your home, especially your bathroom, can be exposed to friends and family so you want it to look spick and span.

So, here are some tips to help you improve your bathroom in time for summer:

Give It A Clean

One of the main things you can do to bring back that sparkle is to give it a deep clean. Get the rubber gloves out and get to work. Remove the showerhead and leave it to soak overnight in a bag of white vinegar to get rid of any grime or dirt. Use white vinegar on your shower door too – it works wonders.

Getting into the hard to reach areas if possible as these places can make taps look grubby and can make your bathroom look old and tired.


Fit A New Pair Of Taps

Something as simple as changing the taps on the bathroom basins can completely change how your bathroom suite looks. By choosing some solid, well-constructed taps that are high quality will make a cheap basin look very expensive. So, this small change will cost very little but will have a huge impact.

Fitting a new pair of taps is a fairly simple installation to do, and there are enough videos online to help you do-it-yourself too.


Add A Mirror Or Wall Cabinet

Space is something that everyone wants, and if you struggle for space, or your bathroom looks small, then installing an illuminated mirror on one of the walls or a wall cabinet which can give you extra storage is something you should definitely consider.

Space and light make rooms look larger, even if they’re on the small side, which can breathe life into your bathroom without having to spend hundreds on a new bathroom.

Impress the family and friends will these simple additions to your bathroom this summer.
