In my opinion, bathrooms are the trickiest of spaces in almost every home. We all dream of big and luxurious spaces with slick bath, shower and tap fittings; the sort we ogle over in the pages of glossies like Elle Decor and House & Leisure.

But the reality, for many of us, is a dark and dingy little space with bad tiling, ancient fittings and dated cabinets. Moreover, for many new and young home-owners, renovations in their newly acquired homes means splashing out on expenses…

This is why I love the idea of these cheap and easy-to-do mini-makeovers with paint. In almost every example, you can see that virtually nothing has been done to the existing cabinetry and fittings of the bathrooms. Rather, the home-makers have made use of paint and wood stains, new handles and a few well-chosen soft furnishings to perform the following bathroom makeovers:

It seems that the number one tip take-away from these bathroom makeovers is to keep your walls lovely and light and to keep your cabinetry either dark or light in colour if you want to achieve a contemporary look and feel.

But one of my favourite finds was this tap transformation (above): taking the shiny gold taps and giving them a hipster-chic spin with a lick of matt black paint!

So, folks – have fun with your bathroom DIY and remember this doesn’t have to break the bank or the budget 😉

      Hi Mientjie,

      The first photo is an example of a bathroom makeover that was sourced from another website. I forwarded your question to our colour consultants at the Plascon Spaces Showroom, and asked if they could suggest a suitable Plascon colour match. Please see below for the response and options from one of Plascon’s colour consultants:

      Good day Mientjie,

      Please see here (click to view) for the colour match presentation as requested. I hope this gives you an idea.

      If you have any further questions or concerns, don’t hesitate to let me know. Please address all further enquiries to spaces@plascon.co.za

      Kind regards,
