Have you ever had a bad experience or not been fully satisfied with a tradesman?


What were the reasons for this?

Poor Timekeeping

Bad Workmanship
Materials not Sound
Unnecessary Delays
Poor After Sales


So you have finally finished that bathroom remodelling project by installing the last tile square, and applied that final coat of paint. The plumbing has been buttoned up and everything looks to be just how you pictured it in your head before you started. So where do you go from here? Do you have any other ideas that didn't quite make it in? One thing you can consider doing is to add some small finishing touches to the room that will enhance all the hard work you just did, and bring the atmosphere to a whole new level.

We decided to put together a small list of bathroom remodelling ideas to really give the room a personal touch, and finish the room completely:

1 - Hang a shelf on a wall, and use it to display your collectibles or other decor.

2 - Fill antique bowls or shaving mugs with toiletries, such as soaps or bath salts.

3 - If you have a larger room, try adding a wicker chair or similar piece of outdoor furniture.

4 - Be generous in your use of mirrors on the walls. They will make the room appear larger and more open.

5 - Colourwash your wood cabinets to give them character.

6 - Try applying a coloured stain to revive those old wood cabinets. Use a light-coloured stain for the background and then apply a brighter colour to some of the drawers to create a contrast.

7 - Always have fresh flowers or flowering plants on hand for fragrance and appearance. Put them in an old watering can or vase.

8 - Should your bathroom have a linen closet with a door, try replacing that door with a framed trellis.

9 - Frame in your mirror over the sink with tiles, perhaps alternating colours or styles in them.

10 - Install a brand new shower curtain. A cloth curtain will be more expensive, but it will also look nicer. You can also try a nylon or cotton curtain as long as you find one in a suitable colour. Try to avoid anything plastic as it will look cheap and probably won't last as long. Plus any stains will be magnified on it.

11 - With a multi-coloured curtain, choose new linens in colours that reflect those of the curtain. For a striped shower curtain, get some solid towels in coordinating colours. Try not to match the pattern exactly because it will take away from the rest of the room.

These are just a few things we thought of. Most important thing is to be creative and experiment until you are happy. Your bathroom will be frequented by many visitors, and can become a statement of your unique personality or style. Don't let any self doubt deter you from having the bathroom of your dreams. And even though the bulk of the work is done, any new bathroom remodelling ideas can be implemented at a later date. Consider your home a work in progress and have fun doing it.
