Be creative

Use what you’ve got

Think creatively about items you can recycle, refresh or use in its current state or form and be reused in your bathroom. Whether it is recycling wood crate trays with rope handles, painted old tarnished mirrors, upcycle old light bulbs into candles, repurpose old jars, bottles and bowls into light fixtures or decorative accessories.

Energise with a pop of colour

It is no secret that colour adds distinctive character and personality to any bathroom.
