So, you're thinking about redesigning or simply refurnishing your bathroom. You might just be toying with the idea of getting new bathroom furniture such as as cabinet, mirror or basin. However, before you go off and do this, you may want to consider some other options that are available to you first—even if you think your budget might not be able to cover it. Some items of furniture, like the bathtub, can quite easily be accessorised and personalised to your taste; you could even take that on as a refurbish project with little effort!

Think about styles and lighting, space and practicality when refurbishing your bathroom. A minimalist approach can make it a lot easier to relax in, and of course, to clean. Creative lighting will help you on your way to creating a desirable scene for anyone (including your guests) to enjoy. Have a look at some ideas that we've gathered to help you get started and gain some inspiration—before you hit the shops. 

Bathroom storage

If you're in a family home, sometimes you need a little extra storage. No one likes to see all your personal times shoved, without order, into an airing cupboard. A good alternative would be to get a storage unit that you can slide across a corner and give yourself a little extra storage whilst still looking good at the same time.

A little number like this bamboo cabinet would not be outrageously expensive and you could, most likely, pick up a similar version for about £40-50 upwards. This kind of storage provides a nice alternative to an excessively big under-sink bathroom cabinet, which can often look bulky and cumbersome.

Bathtubs

Your bathtub should be the centre piece in your bathroom. As mentioned before, tackling a bathtub restoration, or simply make-over, can be a good and rewarding investment of time. Take this model, for example, all you'd need is a classic style, free-standing bathtub (in any condition) and some enamel paint and you are good to go! Personalise away with your own legs, taps and exterior design at, what can be, a low price and not a huge investment of time—you might want to get a professional to do the plunming though!

You need something to throw your towel over in the morning before you jump in the shower, right? Make that chair as stylish as possible! Again, this could be a nice restoration project for you or perhaps even a flea market find—get a beaten up or dated chair, some upholstery fabric and get started!

Why stop at foot-level lighting, when you could have an amazing display like the one featured above? In this respect you can use quite intense, or even harsh, light to feature desired items and not have it effect your bathroom experience.

If you're going for a refurbishment in the bathroom, why not consider some permanent installations. Concrete works these days are, quite frankly, amazing, and you can have all sorts of necessary items made from it -you can even have it implemented for such things as cupboard door surfaces! For more inspiration with concrete, take a look at out ideabook 'A new take on concrete flooring', enjoy!

Bathroom plants

Yes, this isn't furniture; you're right. However, any bathroom will benefit from being brightened up with a bit of green! Make the most of the seasonal plant varieties and evergreens!
