Here at The Online Tile Shop, we have always set out to do one thing; offer great quality, affordable bathroom and kitchen tiles to our customers. 

If you’re considering a dream bathroom makeover, you might be surprised that it doesn’t have to cost too much - our experts are on-hand to guide you through the process of designing and planning your next bathroom renovation, with top tips and advice below.

Bathroom makeover done on a budget, who would have thought?

Upcycle and reuse old items

If you are on a tight budget then this first step will be for you! Re-using your old appliances is a great way to save money and to also get better value for money from any past purchases. 

It can be a fun time to get creative, as you and your family can put on your thinking caps to work out how you’re going to go about recreating your bathroom space. 

Even if it's simply adding a plant that is suitable for the indoors, or adding your children’s fairy lights to give your bathroom more vibrant colour, doing something simple like this can have a good impact - it will go a lot further than you would expect.

Splashbacks

Re-tiling your full bathroom can be expensive, especially if you have a bathroom that’s on the larger side and want to do the walls and floor.

Instead of re-tiling a full room, you may wish to consider adding a splashback with tile design. These are a small patch of wall that has a featured design made up of tiles. 

Splashbacks are useful for preventing unnecessary mess, as they catch the water that can splash from using the sink.  They usually only occupy a smaller space, behind the sink on a wall and are a great cost effective way to makeover your bathroom.  Our range of bathroom tiles will be ideal for a project like this, with prices starting from as cheap as £6.80 per tile. 

Have a feature wall

Just choose one wall and go with it! From our experience, choosing a wall closest to your shower is the best value for money.  The reason for this is because of the effect the water can have when it makes contact with the tile. 

Whilst stocking a fantastic range of Wall Tiles, the one that fits the criteria best is our Provence Blue tile with it being one of our bestsellers to date - it’s no surprise this tile has made the cut. 

The blue finish is mesmerising, matching the reflective nature of the shower water. Having one wall with a main design will make your bathroom stand out for those that step foot into it. Light will also reflect incredibly well in the summer months, adding even more vibrancy to your bathroom!

Floor tiles with a twist

Tiling your floor can be expensive, especially if you are looking to redo the full floor area of your room. There is a compromise though that will serve just as good a job as getting a completely new set of tiles!

Adding a mirror to the side of your bath does a lot in terms of design, as your floor tile design can be reflected throughout your bathroom giving a strong visual impact across the room.

If your bathroom is on the smaller side, it can also create an illusion of making it seem larger as the full bathroom and content are reflected in the mirror.. 

Mirror interiors are cheap and easy to install, just be careful of any furry friends or little ones running into it. 

Aftercare for your tiles…

One thing many of our customers don’t consider when buying tiles from us is the importance of high quality grouts and adhesives. Ensuring you buy the right adhesive for your tiles is vital to ensure a long lasting permanent seal. They keep your tiles in place and ensure they fit securely to your chosen service. The colour and type of tiles you have chosen will affect your choice in grouts and adhesives. 

If you are unsure of which one you are needing, then feel free to contact our team and our experts will be more than happy to assist you further. 

We hope this guide has been a good read for you. Be sure to check out our website for all our full tile ranges, and if you have any questions be sure to contact our team via our site.

The tiles were a great price compared to other online retailers selling the same tiles. However, £30 for a DHL delivery seemed a bit expensive for a small order (approx 220 15x10cm tiles for a splashback).
