Mum totally transforms her bathroom for under £95 and it looks incredible

  • Charlotte Greedy, 27, from Pontyclun, was fed up of her dingy bathroom
  • She used products from B&M, ebay and B&Q to transform it
  • The renovation cost less than £95

If you thought impressive bathroom renovations needed to cost thousands of pounds, think again, because one mum has pulled off a stunning transformation for less than £95.

Mum-of-two Charlotte Greedy, 27, from Pontyclun, was fed up of her uninspiring bathroom, so set about to transform it - but she wanted to stick to a tiny budget of less than £100.

The social media influencer, who shares her interior style on Instagram at @missgreedyshome, told money-saving community LatestDeals.co.uk: "The bathroom was completely run down, dingy and grubby, so it needed a makeover but I needed to do it on a budget as I had just moved in.

"I bought a roll of funky vinyl from B&M for £39.99, bought some spray glue and a pen knife and fitted the new flooring over the existing floor.

“I then bought a under-sink storage unit from ebay to hide all the pipework you could see, painted the walls with a tub of cheap £10 white paint from B&Q and it was completely transformed. The total cost was just under £95!”

Charlotte says she got the initial idea to transform the bathroom from browsing in her local DIY store.

"I had the idea when I went into my local home DIY store and saw some amazing funky Moroccan-style floor tiles,” she explains. “I thought there must be a cheaper way to get that look!

"I noticed online that B&M sold a Moroccan-style vinyl in-store so I headed straight to my local one down Cardiff Bay, and there was one roll left - result!

"I bought spray glue and a pen knife, went home and painted the walls white, then laid the floor.

“The next thing was to hide the pipes - I’d seen some under-sink cabinets in B&M but none fitted with the theme I was going for.

“I looked on ebay and found my grey one with a wooden top, ordered that, and it was complete!

"Vinyl is super easy to lay yourself and if anyone is looking to update their bathroom on a budget I’d highly recommend getting some ‘out there’ flooring, as it creates a fabulous effect!”

Charlotte is over the moon with how strikingly different her bathroom now looks.

"I didn’t think it would turn out as nice as it has,” she adds. “I now don’t feel the need to renovate my bathroom for a long time. I get so many compliments about the floor - people think they are real tiles!”

Tom Church, co-founder of LatestDeals.co.uk, says: “If you showed me the before and after photos of Charlotte’s bathroom, I would have thought this transformation cost at least £1,000.

"This just shows how incredible vinyl can be when it comes to money-saving home improvement ideas. Like Charlotte, look at bargain brands such as B&M and ebay to find all the cheap materials you need to create an expensive look."
