    Published on 26 June 2014, Thursday, 10:00 PM

    When renovating your home, bathrooms can seem to be more difficult to transform than other rooms. With all of the fixtures, fittings and plumbing, DIY-lovers may shy away from targeting this room.

    The good news is, it's a lot easier than you think - a few simple changes can have your bathroom looking wonderfully modern and refreshed.

    Here are a few quick and easy ways to breathe a new lease of life into your bathroom.

    1. Create a fresh colour scheme

    Freshening up and modernising your bathroom can be as easy as giving it a lick of paint. Whether you'd like to paint your entire bathroom or simply refresh the cabinets or a feature wall, white and other light colours are a great way to brighten up this space.

    Once you've selected your colour scheme, be sure to complement this new look with towels, bath mats and a shower curtain that work with your new modern bathroom. 

    2. Fixtures and fittings

    Some taps can be surprisingly simple to replace so check with a professional if yours are DIY-worthy, and then the process is easy.

    Turn off the water and drain the pipes, loosen the tap from the back of the basin, and then unscrew the old taps handles and remove them. You'll then be ready to replace them with your newer pieces.

    Ask for advice if at any point you feel like you are struggling as a cracked basin is something you're going to want to avoid! Whether you complete these steps yourself or seek help, new taps are a cheap yet effective way to transform tired, old basins and baths.

    You may also consider replacing old lamp shades and lighting fixtures with cheap yet effective newer options - these will help to transform the bathroom into a more welcoming and up-to-date space.
