You don't need to go to the expense of re-tiling unless your tiles are in a really bad way, but cleaning and freshening up the grout is a great way to make them look like new.
A tile grout pen is simple to use, inexpensive and water-resistant - some also have anti-bacterial agents in them to protect against mould re-growth. Or you can use a dedicated cleaner and give them a good scrub!

Good lighting is so important in a bathroom, especially for make-up and shaving.
An illuminated mirror is a fantastic idea but until now they had to be wired in by a professional. However a new range of mirrors has LED lights, so simply hang it on the wall and there's no need to destroy your decorating!
When the bulbs go, just replace them.

Bathrooms accumulate a huge amount of stuff - from toiletries to cleaning materials to spare loo rolls.
You want them all to be handy, but not dominate the space, especially in a small bathroom. A slimline organiser is the ideal solution and will fit into tight spaces so its great for a small bathroom.

Blinds can become watermarked over time - so invest in a new blind in a moisture-resistant fabric, preferably with a pattern, so it doesn't show up stains.
Another a neat trick is to make sure the blind doesn't sit directly on the windowsill, as it may pick up condensation that quickly turns into ugly black mould.
PVC shutters are also a good idea in a bathroom as they won't warp and can be wiped down.

Invest In a New Shower Screen Or Curtain

Shower screens can become damaged by limescale and over-cleaning over time, and shower curtains lose their colour quickly and become stained.
Don't bother spending a Sunday afternoon scrubbing. Simply swap your old screen or curtain for a new one for a quick freshen up.

Try a Quick Lick of Paint

It's the quickest way to a new look - add colour to the bathroom walls with a coat of paint to liven them up immediately.
If you have had staining problems in the past, use Stain Stop before painting. And if you are lucky enough to have a roll-top bath, paint that too!

Go for panelled wood for a sophisticated look.
