The Best Time to Redecorate Your Bathroom is January!

I know you don’t want to risk losing hot water in January, but it’s actually the best time to redecorate your bathroom.

It’s still cold outside in January, and so the last thing you want to do is cut off your hot water supply and lose the chance of having a nice warm bath. However, January is actually the perfect month in which to redecorate your bathroom for a number of reasons. Read on to find out what they are.


Get bargains in the sales

Obviously one of the most important reasons that January is a great time to redecorate your bathroom is the sales.

The January sales are way better than any bank holiday offers that you might come across later in the year for the simple fact that they cover all type of products. That means not only are bathroom suites and paints discounted, but you can also achieve some huge savings on more specialised items like towels, shower curtains, and even made-to-measure blinds.

All you need to do is check out Make My Blinds and other stores like them online to see just how much you can save. Remember the more you save, the closer you get to having your dream bathroom without clearing out your bank account.


You’ve joined the gym anyway

January is a great time to redecorate your bathroom because it’s the time of year you are most likely to have joined a gym. Bear with me here, as there is some real logic to this if you think about it.

If you’re having your bathroom done, it means you can’t use it, at least for a few days. That means you will have to shower somewhere else, and where better to do this than at the gym every morning after your workout and before work? You won’t even have to pay extra for a gym membership as, like everyone else in the country, you’ll have signed up to get rid of the Christmas excess anyway! Free showers, perfect!

No guests to worry about

January is also a great month to do any bathroom renovations because everyone has returned to their own homes after Christmas. You’re done with entertaining tonnes of neighbours and family members.

That means there will be no guests to disrupt the household and you can get on with ripping your bathroom out, putting the new one in, and not worrying that it’ll add to your household stresses.


No going out saves money and time

You have to remember that January is usually a fairly boring and uneventful month. Everyone’s recovering from Christmas so there’s not much going on. That means any money you save on going out can be put towards the discounted cost of redecorating your bathroom space.

The best bit is that you will have loads of energy to get the project completed too because there will be no hangovers on a Saturday or Sunday morning to worry about either.

    I’m looking to redo the bathroom as it is really old granny style, i have ugly peachy marble tiles which beside the bath are full of mould, i want to achieve either a modern or spa look. i also want panels beside the bath and i want to change the ugly sides of my bath. New taps, better décor and better way of storage! It’s a tiny bathroom though. Any Advice?

      If you can, keep the suite and decorate everything around it! New tiles, you could even tile the bath in so it doesn’t have panels? I’ll never regret a vanity sink as there’s so much room for storage in those. Changing taps and regrouting makes a huge difference on its own.

        Sounds like a plan! Do you think a shower speaker would look good? ❤️
