Are you bored of your bathroom ceiling light that scores zero style points? Well, consider installing wall lights in your bathroom for a modern and contemporary feel. Not only is it a huge trend for 2020 but will provide a really useful vanity area.

Tile a splashback

Bathroom splashbacks are a great way of adding colour to your scheme. If you're tired of seeing the same tiles everyday, consider replacing them with a different design which brings a smile to your face. Challenge yourself with a more difficult laying pattern such as herringbone or basketweave, which instantly looks more expensive.

Change your shower screen

Shower screens and doors often can get quite grubby and grime builds up over time. Changing your screen or door to a more interesting and modern design can change the look of your entire bathroom. A popular choice for 2020 are black-framed designs and we are huge fans!

Get a new mirror

Accessories can make or break a bathroom so think about what needs updating in your current space. If you've got a mirror, which hangs above your sink consider replacing it with a new one. Designs that are on our current luxury wish list include hanging industrial-style mirrors and brass-framed designs. 

Switch up your flooring

Updating your flooring is a bit more of a disruptive project however the finished result is definitely worth it. For a more luxurious and expensive look opt for patterned tiles that pay homage to the Victorian era or wod-effect flooring that is sure to last and look great.
