Are you envious of your neighbour's new bathroom renovation, but just can't afford to renovate your own just yet? Are you renovating and looking for some luxurious touches that won't break your budget? In the bathroom as in life, "it's the little things that count." These bathroom accessories
are very affordable, yet add the touch of luxury that makes all the difference in the bathroom.
Heated Towel Racks
There's nothing nicer than stepping out of the bath or shower and wrapping a nice warm, dry towel around you. Not only are heated towel racks an affordable luxury, they are a stylish addition to your home. Some of the available styles include:
Chrome plated, the better ones have copper cores for better heat conductivity. Most are designed so that the electrical fittings are completely hidden. While you will need your electrician
to install your heated towel racks, once installed, it's there to serve you throughout the life of your bathroom.
A New Shower Head
One of the least expensive ways to add a touch of luxury to your bathroom is to install a new shower head. When water conservation became an issue, manufacturers put their engineers to work designing more water efficient shower heads. When consumers complained about the lack of water pressure, they went back to their drawing boards and created water efficient shower heads that also felt better and cleansed more thoroughly than their water-wasting counterparts. Today, models exist that can give you wider water droplets, a fine spray mist or a high pressure spray, depending on your preference. They feel better, rinse more efficiently and use less water than old fashioned shower heads.
There's probably nothing more annoying than stepping out of a nice hot shower and having to use your towel to wipe the fog off your vanity mirror. A demister is a deceptively simple and inexpensive device that can be taped to the back of your existing wall hung mirror. When connected to your power supply, it warms the entire surface of the mirror, preventing water condensation. Once installed, you'll never have to use your towel for drying your mirror instead of your body again.
A Frameless Shower Screen
When frameless glass shower screens
were introduced to the market, they were expensive luxuries. They have come down dramatically in price, though and are now affordable luxuries. A frameless shower enclosure is arguably the least expensive way to make your bathroom look like it's had a complete renovation without having to do anything more than replacing your old shower screen or curtain.
Combine a frameless glass shower screen with a heated towel rack, a new shower head and a demister and you have a bathroom renovation on a budget. If your bath and basin are looking a little worse for wear, have a bath and basin resurfacing
professional come in and make them look as good as new for a fraction of the cost. Add modern tapsets and your budget renovation is done.
