Could Your Home Benefit from a Downstairs Cloakroom?

When it comes to home renovations, you may think of doing up your kitchen or living room before you consider a new bathroom but in fact, it’s one of the easiest ways to add value to your home. Just because you have a small space doesn’t mean that you can’t make a statement. With the right ideas you can create a lovely environment that everyone in the home enjoys using, and since they use it so often, it will help with the mood in your home! But perhaps you’re stuck for ideas or low on cash? JMG Bathrooms, successful bathroom suppliers, have provided a few tips to help you spruce up your bathroom, even if time or money are limited.

Function over form

It’s great to have a bathroom that looks good but ensure that everything serves its function, particularly if you’re short on space. Narrow fit storage cabinets not only look great but they also provide extra storage space for everything you may need. Always pop a cabinet below the sink – so you can cover up the plumbing and make use of that wasted space! Mount a towel rack beside the bath so that towels don’t get strewn on their floor.

Replace old fixtures

Good fixtures do stand the test of time, but they might be getting a bit leaky, creaky or just worn. Your sink may not be showing its age but your fixtures are probably out of fashion. Go for something sturdy and new, metallics are back in, so you can go for a subtle bronze that will update your bathroom even in the smallest way.

A lick of paint

White is always a good choice for bathroom suites as it looks clean. It also matches everything so even if you have a patterned tile it will blend fine. Another popular colour at the moment is turquoise blue or you could vary it up with shades of the sea across the walls.

Be daring!

Even though it’s a small space, it doesn’t mean you can’t get creative. Go for an illuminated mirror to wake you up in the morning, choose a sink or bathtub in a daring colour or go for a sleek wall-hung unit for an ultra-modern look. If you don’t want something permanent, you can get creative with accessories.


If your tiles are wearing around the edges or simply look tired, it might be time to invest in some new ones. Large mosaic style, herringbone and blue tiles are in right now so you can really go for a pattern that suits your personality.

Consider some wall art

If you don’t want to overhaul the entire bathroom, then a piece of artwork can change the mood. Choose wisely and you can transform the whole room. Go for something that stands out, but still maintains the comfort of the room – don’t hang something opposite the toilet that might upset whoever is sat there!
