6 ways to update your bathroom without renovating

1. Chrome showerhead  
Low water pressure is no excuse for a lacklustre shower. Boasting 90 highly concentrated jets and a pivoting outer ring, this chic showerhead delivers 60 percent more water coverage than a traditional rain showerhead without using a single drop more. Halo showerhead in chrome, $65, moen.ca.

2. Hands-free toilet flush

Could manual flush levers soon be a thing of the past? Kohler thinks so, and the company is certainly making a case for it with the Touchless Toilet Flush Kit, designed to retrofit your existing toilet into a hands-free-flushing model. Hygiene benefits aside, the motion-sensor system is surprisingly easy to install, and it costs a fraction of the price of a brand new loo. $122, kohler.ca.

3. Shower curtain

Leave it to Ikea's designers to find a solution for a bathroom that's bursting at the seams. This playful new shower curtain incorporates eye popping mesh pockets for the grooming gear that's cluttering your countertops. Sprutt shower curtain, $10, ikea.ca.

4. Sink Faucet

Swapping out a faucet has always been one of the simplest ways to spruce up your bathroom. Now, thanks to American Standard's Speed Connect series, it's easier than ever. With only four individual components (compared to  the standard 14), the faucets can be installed in a third of the time, without caulk or putty. Quentin widespread faucet, $389, americanstandard.ca.

5. Turquoise shower caddy

In a sea of polished chrome, this colourful shower caddy is a real standout. Its turquoise tone will instantly warm a sterile-looking shower enclosure. Flex shower caddy in Surf Blue, $25, umbra.com.
