What are your plans for this weekend? Lounging in front of the TV (yet again)? Catching up with friends? How about spending a little time indoors to touch up that bathroom? But before you start moaning and groaning, we are not talking about hours and hours of work to revamp the entire space.

Nope, because the ideas we have in mind are much quicker, much easier, and much cheaper, yet they provide equally stylish results if you were to spend an entire day zhooshing up the bathroom. 

Interested in seeing some fabulous changes that a mere R500 can bring to your bathroom space in a matter of hours (if that long)? Then scroll right ahead…

1. If your cistern or geyser is in the bathroom, box it off with plywood for a much neater finish (might need some professional assistance or a DIY expert for this one).

2. Add mirrored panels to make your cabinets the full width of a small wall. Instant visual space!

3. Stain your mirror frame to match your bathroom’s colour scheme.

4. Opt for some coloured and/or patterned toilet paper. Yes, something as small as this can make your bathroom look and feel more high-end.

5. Decant the liquid hand soap into a beautiful soap dispenser and recycle that plastic bottle.

12. Wall decals or wallpaper (the waterproof kind) can make for a funky backsplash.

13. Hang a few floating shelves above your toilet for extra storage.

14. Switch up your boring textiles with some vibrant ones.
