Does your bathroom need jazzing up in time for Christmas? Look no further than your local DIY store. It’s easier than you think to transform your space from drab to fab. By selecting the right paint for each area, it’s possible to revive items that you thought were beyond help. For tatty cupboards, use Furniture and Cupboard Paint, even an easy job such as this can make tired furniture look as good as new. A coat of paint can really perk up an old radiator. Get some Radiator Enamel Aerosol and spray on the solution. It is designed specifically for changing temperatures, so won’t yellow or flake with the heat. If you are looking for a white wonderland, and all you’ve got is a drab dated mess, use Tile Paint. You don’t need to rip out old tiles, just paint over the top. If you’ve had a leak which has resulted in stains on the wall, the answer is Stain Block Paint. Once the problem has been fixed, paint over the patch and leave to dry. The resulting stain-free surface can then be painted over with a normal emulsion.

If you have a bit left in your budget for a few finishing touches, check out these simple ideas: A mirror hung opposite a focal point such as a window, can double its effectiveness, providing a view of a feature from several vantage points. New towels folded neatly in a wicker basket will give your bathroom a fresh homely feel. Put scented candles in the bathroom and light one when you have guests. Not only will it create a cosy atmosphere, your bathroom will smell beautiful too. The scruffiest-looking basin can gain a whole new lease of life with a set of shiny chrome taps. Hang a chandelier or wall sconce for a hint of decadence. Adorn bathroom shelves with gorgeous glass accessories and fill them with bath salts, and delicious cinnamon and orange smelling lotions and potions for a delicious Christmas aroma.
Follow these tips and you will be on the long and happy road to bathroom bliss this Christmas.
