Bathrooms are small, dark and sometimes smelly places often lacking the warmth that can be felt in other areas of the house. Transform the way you see your bathroom with Viakal’s five simple bathroom hacks.

There’s nothing stopping you transforming your dingy bathroom into a relaxing oasis for you to enjoying some bathtime bliss in – especially now the kids are back to university and you have space for some ‘me time’!

The start of autumn is a great time to get inspired by the colours of the changing season and refresh your bathroom.

Transform the way you see one of the most-used but often-overlooked rooms in the house by giving it a quick and easy makeover. There is no need to splash the cash though: take a look at Viakal’s five easy hacks to transform your bathroom into the relaxing sanctuary you deserve.

Give yourself a blank canvas

Before you pick up a paintbrush or reorganise your bathroom, give yourself a blank canvas to work with by doing a deep clean.

Dust all the surfaces, clean the windows, wash the towels and don’t forget about the pesky limescale. Sinks, mirrors and shower doors with hard water stains will quickly ruin your new oasis.

Households remove an average of 13 kilograms of limescale per year. This can seem like a daunting task, but with the right cleaning product it’s well within your power.

Choose a cleaner that does most of the work for you. Viakal’s fast-acting solution clings to limescale, while its fizzing action gently lifts off hardened layers, leaving surfaces glimmering. What’s more, Viakal adds a protective layer that prevents limescale from even forming – so less work for you in the long run!

Clever storage

A quick declutter and organising session will make your bathroom look and feel like new – and it needn’t be expensive. Use empty jars for a shabby chic way of storing small beauty essentials like cotton buds, make-up sponges and hair ties.

If you run out of counter space, go vertical by using cake stands, wooden ladders or anything else that works to store towels and other products.

Pro tip: mix and match containers to give your bathroom a unique feel.

Colourful accessories

Give your bathroom a quick refresh by purchasing colourful bathmats, towels and other accessories. Pops of autumnal colours such as burnt orange, mustard yellow or bronze decor will make your bathroom more inviting.

Try going green and adding in small potted plants to bring the outdoors in and create your own bathtime oasis.

New scentsations

The last thing you want your bathroom to be is smelly. Make sure it always smells fresh by adding candles, potpourri, or air fresheners to the mix. Try a relaxing scent like lavender, vanilla or fresh linen to create a rejuvenating ambience in your bathroom.

While you’re planning out your bathroom refresh, remember that you can get money off your favourite brands in store. Just print out the coupons at home and save money on Viakal and more.
