How to update your downstairs bathroom on a budget

Although your downstairs toilet is not the biggest room in your home, it’s probably one of the spaces that’s used the most.

With this in mind, it’s important that it is inviting, functional and most importantly, comfortable.

We’ve created a guide outlining how you can update your downstairs bathroom on a budget. From adding space saving fittings through to incorporating a well-placed mirror, there are lots of ways that you can make the most of your available space.

Mirror, mirror on the wall…

Adding a feature mirror to your downstairs bathroom is a great way to inject instant light and space into a room. This is because a strategically placed mirror will not only provide a decorative and eye-catching focal point, but it will also enhance a sense of space by bouncing light around the room, especially if you’re working with a confined space.

Innovative, space saving fittings

The majority of downstairs toilets and bathrooms have limited space. With this in mind, it can sometimes be difficult to find suitable fixtures and fittings that don’t overpower the rest of your space.

However, there are lots of ways that you can optimise the space in your downstairs loo. Space saving fittings that combine a basin and toilet into one compact unit are ideal for saving space without compromising on style or function.

After all, just because you are working with a smaller space doesn’t mean that you can’t benefit from a neat and tidy finish. Wall mounted vanity units; smaller corner sinks and wall-mounted toilets are also a great way to save much needed floor space.

A splash of colour

Adding a splash of colour to your downstairs bathroom is a great way to add a healthy dose of personality to your space, without it breaking the bank.

And when it comes to accenting your bathroom, it’s important to choose complementary colours that will enhance the size and existing décor of the space you are working with.

If you’re working with a small space, it’s essential that you invest in smart storage solutions that will help you to optimise your available space. After all, it’s easy for small areas to become cluttered and messy very quickly if all of your lotions, potions and other bathroom essentials do not have a home.

Opt for clever storage that will make the most of your wall space. For example off the floor cabinets and shelving are always a great option for keeping toiletries and items such as toilet rolls and towels hidden out of sight.
