Renovating your bathroom is a great way to spruce up a home – there’s only so many times you can redecorate the living room! But before you start we want to give you some tips about our waterproofing products.
Creating a clean, elegant bathroom where you can relax in the tub, enjoy a hot shower, and have guests use it without feeling embarrassed isn’t as expensive as you think!
Transforming your bathroom on a budget is not only possible but made simple with our waterproofing kit.
Here are some pointers on how to save a few bucks while keeping everything nice and dry.
Repainting your bathroom is the cheapest and easiest way to give it a make-over.
And a new coat of paint transforms a room making it might the most effective!
Bathrooms work best with neutral colours, so stick to your whites, creams, beiges and light blues. If you feel that’s too bland, accessorise with colour!
Splashes of bright colours – used in moderation – really enhance the personality of a room.
If repainting, think about adding our amazing Liquid Rubber Waterproof Sealant while you’ve got the brushes out.
It can be applied like any normal paint to most common surfaces to waterproof and protect, forming a highly flexible membrane that prevents water infiltration.
This seamlessness means there are no joins, which is where traditional waterproofing methods can fail – perfect for the round edges of a bath!
When renovating the bathroom, tiling is probably the thing that’s going to put the cost through the roof.
And there’s a reason for that – it’s difficult!
Doing it right means hiring a professional to do it, so if you really want new tiles in your bathroom, to save money, we suggest limiting the number of tiles used.
Instead of tiling a wall floor to ceiling, only focus on the area you absolutely need tiled, like the floor.
Failing that, a long strip of tiles where the sink is can look great and paint the rest of the room with our waterproof paint.
Grout and Silicone
Grout and silicone hold everything together in a bathroom, preventing water damage and leaking roofs.
The problem comes when they start to get old, dirty and mouldy.
Not only do they look awful, but they’re also unhygienic.
In fact, often it’s the grimy look of grout and silicone that encourages people to renovate their bathrooms in the first place!
A complete bathroom remodelling should involve the removal and reapplication of silicone and grout, but if it’s out of your budget, the next best thing is to give it a good clean.
Our Moss & Mould Kill is a high strength, slow-release cleaner designed to safely treat, remove and prevent moss, mould, mildew, lichen and algae growing on most hard surfaces.
It contains a special blend of biodegradable surfactants to ensure maximum product penetration for improved performance.
If a total bathroom renovation isn’t on the cards, but you want to shake things up a bit, then consider replacing or adding new fixtures.
On a reasonable budget, you can update light fixtures, sink faucets, towel racks, and drawer handles.
These might seem like little things, but it’s the little things that catch your eye when you walk into a room, sometimes subconsciously.
When adding new fixtures, one way to keep them dry is with our Liquid Rubber Seam Tape, used to seal gaps, seams tears and joins.
