How to spruce up your bathroom

Bathrooms in rented apartments or houses often leave little to be desired: leftover, mismatched or eighties style tiles adorn the walls, not to mention the plastic bath and patchy paint. Fear not, while you may not be able to actually do any major redecorating, there are a few things you can do to make it a little more homely:

New shower curtain
Add a little colour to your bathroom by investing in a new bright coloured shower curtain. You can go as cheap or as expensive as you like, you can even pick one up in Dealz for €1.49.

Fabric skirt
While it might remind you of your granny’s bathroom, they will hide ugly pipes and drains coming from the sink. Simply secure some fabric underneath the basin and let it hang down from the sink like a dress.

Wall stickers
Wall stickers are great for updating any look or simply bringing a little inspiration into the home. You can get them online and they are great for rented places as they easily come off the walls without leaving a mark.

Flowers are a great way to spruce up any area. Head to IKEA or Dealz and pick up a cheap colourful vase, fill it with some flowers and pop them in the bathroom. If you have hayfever, fake flowers can look just as nice.
