Bathrooms are fantastic as they really respond well to small, cheap improvements. Maybe it's because there isn't really too much you can change or the functionality will be affected but, whatever the reason, we are fully on board and ready to make a few little alterations right now. 

We've taken a look at what designers like to add to make a space a little more special and we've come up with some fabulous, budget bathroom design ideas. 

Take a look and see if you fancy tackling any of these small upgrades this weekend!

1. Box your cistern in with plywood for a neater finish

3. If you don't have a mirror, add a framed one and stain the frame to match your colour scheme

4. This will sound silly but opt for the expensive toilet roll or coloured paper. It will make the rest of your room look and feel more high-end!

5. Buy pretty soap dispensers and decant you liquid soap into them instead of having the original bottle out

6. Use a grout pen to re-whiten your grout and make your tiles all look brand new
