March 31, 2012 (PRLEAP.COM) Business News
The bathroom can be an important room of the house that increases its market value, so if the décor is old-fashioned and out of date now is the time to update it ready for the British summertime.

Temperatures are rising and the sun is shining but if the four bathroom walls look dull and boring, you can add a splash of bright colour on a budget. Brits can make the space modern and relaxing even with tight purse strings by choosing simple accessories that will transform the whole décor.

The little fittings and furnishings can turn the bathroom from drab to chic so you will enjoy soaking in a bubble bath after a hot, hard day at work. Update the bathroom with a fresh colour scheme and coordinate the decorations with matching candles, towels, bath mats, potpourri and soap dish.

A new toilet brush holder, toothbrush container and decorative vanity mirror can update the room on a budget; and a quality bathroom cabinet or vanity unit can hold all your summer beauty essentials like spray tan and sun cream. Alternatively, wall mounted shelving is a great option and gives a real lift to the modern bathroom whilst keeping sinks and baths clutter-free.

Updating the bathroom can be as little as changing the sinks and baths taps, to investing in a new freestanding bath to wash away your worries. If the shower has been broken for some time, now is the time to purchase a new shower enclosure or shower head so you can keep cool whilst the temperatures increase.

Don't leave the wet towels on the floor; towel rings and robe hooks are an ideal cost-effective method to accessorising the bathroom as well as putting a shower basket in the corner of the room for dirty washing. And bathroom radiators and heated towel rails are a perfect feature to add to the room as they are a very popular trend for 2012.
