Woman transforms dingy bathroom for under £250 with free paint and £8 grout pens


Sacha was desperate to transform her ‘grotty’ bathroom into something special but wanted to keep costs down – and now she has offered some vital tips to anyone looking to spruce up their space

She didn’t like her dingy bathroom – so did something about it

A woman managed to transform her tiny bathroom on a budget with just a few bargain items and has explained the best way to do so for your own home.

Sacha, who lives in Stamford, Lincolnshire, wanted to update her grotty bathroom without spending too much.

And the 27-year-old managed to spend less than £250 to make the tiny room completely unrecognizable and has been handing out some great DIY tips.

“I wouldn’t say I have one particular interior style, instead, it is more of a mash up of a few different styles,” Sacha told Leader Floors.

“My home is a mixture of scandi, minimalistic, modern and eclectic – I tend to just go with what I like as opposed to trying to follow one particular style or trend”.

She added that the transformed bathroom is easily one of her favorite rooms in the house.

“This is the room I put most of my own time into, and something I completed totally by myself on a super minimal budget,” she explained.

Sacha said the change has made a huge difference as previously she felt like the room never looked clean no matter how much time she spent scrubbing it.

She added that a lot of the rest of her house has also been done up on a budget.

“I managed to complete the bathroom makeover for less than £250,” she went on.

“A lot of the house was done on a budget. I also feel like if there is a way of doing something cheaper or yourself, then it makes no sense to pay someone and spend more than you need to get it done unless it is something that really requires a professional of course.

“I started by painting the ceiling, walls and storage cupboards before going onto laying the flooring, this way any paint spillages didn’t really matter too much, as they would be covered.”

She has offered some important advise to anyone thinking of following in her footsteps.

“Take your time and to really think about what you want to do,” she said.

“It is super easy to rush into interior decisions but by doing so you can sometimes make decisions that you’ll later regret or just aren’t functional, some that are easier to correct and some that can be costly to change.

“I would also really recommend getting samples for literally everything, whether it is pain colours, fabric choices or tiles because things can look different on a computer screen as well in different areas of your home depending on the light!”
