Shower curtains needn't be plain. You can instantly transform your bathroom with new shower curtains and poles. Choose from designs with floral prints, ocean creatures and geometric patterns. And once they're up, they might inspire you to give the bathroom a full makeover.
You don't have to go the whole hog, however. Accessorise with smaller items such as toilet seats to coordinate with your shower curtain. Add a set of scales: they come in all styles, from retro to ultra-modern. You'll no longer be battling the alarm clock every morning. You'll jump out of bed to make the most of your bathroom time slot (well, maybe not at the weekend).
While you're at it, why not upgrade your living room too with a new set of blinds or curtains. Choose some smaller items to match. Throw in a chunky bean bag or two, and a vibrant set of cushions for cosy movie nights in. Don't forget the popcorn.
