6 ways to transform your bathroom


In House and Leisure's Before & After special edition, on shelves now, we reveal our top six reader home renovations of the year. Without spoiling the fun by sharing the full transformations online, we've decided to take a closer look at just the bathrooms - arguably the most underrated space in the home.

Ranging from the sleek and monochrome to the antique-inspired, these are bathrooms you'll want to spend loads of time in. And if you like any of them enough to recreate them in your own home, we've put together a handy shopping guide to help you do just that.

Remember to vote for your favourite reader home and room renovation in our Before & After issue for a chance to win one of 10 amazing prizes worth up to R10 000 each. Enter here.
