Updating your kitchen or bathroom needn't be a major upheaval, for minimal outlay in terms of time and money spent, you can easily give your bathroom or kitchen a new lease of life.

Here are some ideas which do not involve ripping out bathroom suites or having a whole new kitchen fitted!

  • Clean or replace grout and mouldy silicone sealant

  • Give walls and ceilings a good clean with sugar soap, a quick sand down and a new coat of paint

  • Replace discoloured / plastic / dated handles with new brushed steel handles

  • Ditch the dated and discoloured fluorescent strip lighting with new power-saving positionable LED spotlights

  • Install shiny new tapware and showerhead

  • Replace corroded and unsightly floorgrates with a stylish new grate

  • Invest in new accessories such as toilet roll holders, towel rails, toothbrush and soap holders

  • Put up a brushed steel shelf in the bathroom and stock with fluffy new towels for that luxury hotel feel

  • Consider replacing a scratched, stained or cheap-looking kitchen worktop with a new stone workbench - this could add the wow factor to your home

  • Invest in a new stone-topped bathroom vanity unit for even more wow appeal

  • A modern new mirror in the bathroom will help brighten up and modernise the room

  • To add some luxury for the winter months, why not install a heated towel rail or heated feature panel in the bathroom

  • If you can't afford to re-tile a whole room, think about maybe creating a feature wall with modern glass mosaic tiles or handmade encaustic tiles for a rustic feel

  • Add a border row of designer tiles to existing tiled areas

  • Install some new blinds or give existing ones a jolly good clean / replace discoloured cord

  • Replace discoloured cord on lightpulls

  • Get new plugs and plug chains for sinks
