Chris Carroll, interior stylist and blogger at The Life Creative, says, “Replacing your tapware is an affordable way to bring your bathroom into the now.
The latest trends are pointing towards black and brass tapware, so look at those for a contemporary feel.”
The key is to choose taps with a similar base fitting, and change the basin, bath and show fittings so they match. Look into replacing your framed shower screen with a frameless version to modernise the space and increase the feeling of light and space.
Mirrors are another way of transforming interiors, especially in small spaces. “Larger mirrors will open up the space and allow more light within the room,” says interior designer Angela Steyn.
If you think changing a vanity is a major overhaul, you’re mistaken. As long as it’s a similar size to your existing one and doesn’t require moving the plumbing it’s an easy change – and update.
