Don’t be bound by your budget
It's perfectly possible to achieve a brand-new look for your bathroom and stay on budget. With some creative thinking, you can refresh your bathroom on any sized budget. The key is research and seeking advice from those in the know – whether that be a tradesperson, store employee or online resource.
See it with your own eyes
Take every opportunity you can to see, touch and try before you buy.
Go into a store, order a sample and speak to a member of staff to get a real feel for the products you like the look of them in real life.
This saves the risk of buying something that you don't like and won't use when you come to installing your new bathroom.
If in doubt, seek advice

A refresh rather than a total refurb?
Painting the walls, updating the flooring and buying new accessories can all have an instant impact without flushing funds away.
Any unwanted items, from toilets to taps, are well worth advertising. This is the perfect way to recoup some of the money you're spending. This will also save you disposing of them at recycling centres and rubbish tips.
