Effortless Bathroom Makeovers

Bathrooms are important personal spaces in our home that we use at least twice a day – more so when we are working from home. That is a lot of wear and tear, which means your bathroom will probably need more updating and maintenance than other rooms in the house. Additionally, creating a pleasant environment that you feel comfortable spending much of our time in is essential for your physical and mental well-being.

However, this does not mean you need a bathroom overhaul. Small tweaks to the details require little effort and time, yet they can go a long way in sprucing up the look and feel of your bathroom. Here are some easy ways you can beautify your bathroom without any major renovations.


One of the fastest ways to refresh a space is to paint it. A new colour scheme can transport something that was trendy a few years back into the current day, in line with present styles. Repaint your walls to give the space a new flair – even if it is just a few shades difference. This can help make a statement or take your interior design in a completely different direction. To refurbish the bathroom tiles, you can consider updating the grouting instead of repainting them. This can infuse the whole space with a breath of new life and is one of the simplest ways to decorate your bathroom.


Updating small fittings can change and uplift a space instantly without having to do a total makeover. If you have changed the colour scheme in your space, you can update the fittings to match. For example, the premium GROHE Rainshower SmartActive hand shower offers two chic shapes – round and square in up to 11 contemporary colour selections such as the classy golden-hued Cool Sunrise, or the timeless silver Chrome finish.

If you want to switch up your bathroom faucet, the new Lineare basin mixer will add a sparkle of minimalist elegance with its gleaming GROHE StarLight chrome coating and sleek body shape. These fittings can be quickly installed without the hassle and noise from drilling or hacking, so you can continue about your activities at home without a worry or headache!


When it comes to accessorising a modern bathroom, less is definitely more. Identify the key accessories you must have in the bathroom and remove the rest. Place these items strategically so that they are easily accessible yet still relatively unobtrusive to the eye.

If you store your towels in the bathroom, you can update the towel hooks or replace them with a wooden ladder instead. Open shelving is also a smart arrangement for easy access, but remember to organise the shelves regularly to avoid cluttering or a pile-up.

You can also consider adding a few of your personal items that can create a warmer and inviting atmosphere – think scented candles, small potted plants or even your favourite perfume.

Match your accessories to your desired colour scheme for a coordinated look or go for bold clashes to make a statement – the choice is yours.


With a high bathroom usage, items such as shower curtains should be replaced every year or so, or when you start to see mould and mildew form. Sometimes you can wash your shower curtains, but it is not applicable to all curtain materials. In this case, a more sustainable way of keeping your bathroom dry during your showers is to have a glass divider installed to replace your shower curtain permanently.

Lastly, replacing smaller personal hygiene items such as toilet brushes, soap dishes, and toilet paper holders can help spruce up a space that you can unwind comfortably in after a long day!
