So if you are looking for a change, then here are some easy ways to bring your bathroom into the 21st century.

Ceiling Speakers – The bathroom is an easy place to go to get away from the stresses that come with your hectic lifestyle and what better way to enjoy a warm relaxing bath than with some of your favourite music subtly playing in the background. Combined with the correct bathroom lighting you can easily create a peaceful and tranquil environment for you to relax in after a hard day’s work. Many bathroom ceiling speakers will come equipped with waterproof designs meaning they are completely safe in your bathroom environment and can be fitted into your bathroom as part of a home audio system.

Bathroom Mirror Lights – Another popular addition to the 21st century bathroom is a bathroom mirror light, which is essentially a mirror with lighting around the edges. This has proved a popular addition as it can be very handy when getting ready for work in the morning or a night out in the evening.  Mirror lights also come in a variety of styles which include a wall bathroom cabinet, lit mirrors with fully adjustable arms and low energy bathroom versions.

Open (Walk-in) Showers – More homeowners are looking in to installing walk-in showers in to their bathrooms, predominantly because they allow for more space to manoeuvre when showering. Having no door is also far more convenient as getting in and out is a great deal easier and it makes it easier to clean.

Low Volume Baths – If you are in love with your bath, then you may want to start thinking about the amount of water you use and how you can reduce it. There are now a variety of sleek and stylish low volume baths that will fit in to any bathroom design. Low Volume baths are shaped to match the contours of the human body, thus creating a more efficient area to be filled with water, and reducing the amount of water needed to fill a bath.

Re-tile/Re-decorate – In order to give your bathroom a clean and calm appeal, you may need to give it a bit of a facelift.

This includes replacing any stained or cracked tiles and giving the bathroom a new lick of paint. Light colours tend to be popular as it reduces your dependency on very bright bathroom lighting (saving you money) and it generally emits a calming, clean atmosphere which is likely to be what you are looking for in a bathroom.

Bathrooms tend to deteriorate far quicker than any other room in your house because of the often moist environment; so making sure you refresh regularly is essential to bringing your bathroom into the 21st century.
