The best DIY bathroom ideas

Posted on Tuesday 1st May 2018 by James Roberts

Spring is the perfect time to think about sprucing up your home. So this is when DIY bathroom ideas should be at the forefront of your mind. The combination of longer days and lighter nights means there’s plenty of time and opportunity for a new-season makeover. So where better to start than with your bathroom?

For many people, the bathroom is one of their smallest rooms with the biggest usage. So it’s very important to get the space right. New bathrooms can mean a sizeable investment. But revamping what you already have doesn’t have to be difficult or expensive. Read on to discover our tried and tested DIY bathroom ideas! Most of all, we can help you update your décor without breaking the bank.


You can never, ever have too much storage and a freestanding storage unit can certainly help. After all, this is a simple, instant DIY way to refresh and revamp your bathroom, especially if you choose a statement style and/or colour. We’re big fans of our Roper Rhodes Hampton 400mm Slate Grey Storage Unit, which is supplied rigid for easy installation. It features a reversible door, soft-close drawer and a painted worktop for stand-alone use. It even comes with an optional handle upgrade!

If your bathroom really is bijou, consider introducing a wall mirror cabinet. They take up no floor space and offer useful storage. In addition they are an easy way to give your bathroom a brighter, lighter look. Some of the latest hi-tech models, such as the Phoenix Pandora Mirror Cabinet, even incorporate extras like a Bluetooth connection, internal speakers and a heated demister pad – perfect for gadget geeks!


A full lighting overhaul isn’t exactly an easy DIY bathroom fix but an illuminated mirror is a much easier option. So we love the distinctive shape and design of our Bauhaus Waldorf 600mm Illuminated Mirror. After all, it’s a great way to update both contemporary and classically styled bathrooms.

Furthermore, for a more low-key look, our HIB Eclipse Round LED Magnifying Mirror is an excellent (and practical) option.


Some of the best DIY bathroom ideas involve accessories from shelves and towel rails to the humble robe hook. However, these represent quick and easy ways to give your space a facelift. It’s all about the detail! Even soap dispensers and soap baskets offer plenty of potential for cute bathroom ideas. Our Crosswater Belgravia Soap Basket is an easy DIY way to update any style of bathroom. Fans of the retro look should check out our wall-mounted Arcade Nickel Liquid Soap Dispenser.

Complement your new accessories with some fancy towels – and maybe even a plant or two – and your DIY bathroom revamp is complete!
