We are here to outline some of our favourite tips and tricks you can incorporate within your bathroom design to give it the ultimate facelift.

  • Semi-frameless shower screens offering a sleek and simple design

Your shower screen plays a very prominent role in the overall style of your bathroom. It is the heart of the design, and is not only a functional feature but makes a statement. Semi-frameless shower screens are an amazing alternative to shower curtains and will immediately provide your bathroom with the facelift it needs.

Today, glass has become an attractive option in many people’s homes – offering your bathroom a modern edge and sleek design. Installing a semi-frameless shower screen to your bathroom will instantly create a sense of elegant simplicity with its defined lines and simple design. Semi-frameless shower screens are a great option as you can choose from a range of glass options, with different colours and textures available. You can also choose other style options including, sliding or bi-fold doors to complete the look that you want.

Semi-frameless shower screens also improve aesthetics by maximising the amount of space and light in a room. The minimal framing and seamless design allow light to pass through it easily – offering an airy and clean look.

Not only are semi-frameless shower screens easy on the eye, but they are also extremely safe and durable as well as are very easy to maintain. Semi-frameless shower screens are completely customisable and allow you to design your bathroom just the way you like.

  • Mirror, mirror, on the wall

Installing different types of mirrors to your bathroom can instantly uplift the surrounding space. They are not only practical necessities but are also handy for creating an illusion of more light and space in smaller rooms. If the mirrors in your current bathroom are scratched, old and chipped – replace them with new ones. You will be able to find plenty of affordable options that will make a statement. With several framing, colour, shape and design options – you will be able to find a mirror that matches your bathroom perfectly. If you are looking for a modern twist, try mirrors with a wavy, circular or triangular design or fit a couple of different mirrors together to create a unique shape.


  • To keep your mirrors looking good as new and squeaky clean, you must wipe them regularly with a window/glass cleaner.
  • Position your mirror opposite any windows to reflect the light around the room and give the illusion of a much lighter, brighter room.
  • Every day is a spa day – update your fixtures

Take a good look at all the little details in your bathroom and update light fixtures, sink faucets, towel racks and drawer pulls. These little changes are a rather small investment but can make a massive difference to the design of your bathroom. Here are some examples of how you can do so:

  • Install a new matte black or stainless steel towel rack.
  • Change the hardware of your sink faucets to a matte-black or rose gold – a trending design option.
  • Update your light fixtures – incorporate crystal/copper scones, small chandeliers, lampshades or understated ceiling lights.


  • Bring elements of nature inside your bathroom including greenery and plants. These natural elements will provide you with an escape to a personal day spa every day.
  • Your bathroom should be your retreat – a place to unwind, relax and rejuvenate. Candles and incense are great ways to change to the atmosphere and aroma of your bathroom.
  • Vanity revamp

Is your old vanity in decent shape? Instead of purchasing a new one, you may be able to make a couple of quick modifications to transform the look.

  • Paint the doors and drawers with a clean or neutral colour for a modern appearance.
  • Switch the handles to something more contemporary. Several sleek and modern vanity handles can be easily changed.

However, if you do have a little more money to spare – a new vanity combined with your new tapware will make a massive difference to your old bathroom.
