Some ways that a bathroom makeover will benefit you

We have seen how upgrading your bathroom or indeed kitchen can improve the value of your home, a bathroom makeover is possibly the easiest as it does not require a change to the room, simply improving the existing design. You may have a bathroom that you inherited from the previous owner, or it could be the one that the builder of the home installed, which in all probability is an off the shelf bland suite. There are lots of reasons why a bathroom makeover is a great choice.

There are numerous ways that you may like to improve the layout of your current bathroom, bathroom furniture in the form of wall mounting cupboards, laundry baskets, electrical points for charging toothbrushes or powering an electric razor. Adding towel racks to your bathroom radiator, bathroom mirrors are some examples.

A very popular idea is to remove your current bathtub and replace it with a Jacuzzi or Spa bath. We have a number at our web pages and this will be your new way to relax. You could add a music system or even a waterproof television!

Most bathrooms in the UK are small, but that does not mean that they have to be uninviting, bright paintwork and decorative walls can give a small bathroom a new lease of life. Retro styled basins, WC’s, wash stands and modern taps which may look Victorian but offer the quality of 21st century technology. What’s better than a nicely heated floor when you step out of the bath or shower, underfloor heating mats are easy to install and they and neither expensive to buy or to run. Lighting can also transform a bathroom and an illuminated mirror is one way to achieve this, down lighters are another.

As we and the population get older, mobility is an obstacle that we all must face, the modern way to overcome some of the problem is to remove the bath and replace it will a wet room, no more climbing in and out of baths. Another option is to fit a corner shower cabinet, these take up little space and access in and out is easy.

You may not be considering selling your home but we can say that a bathroom makeover will improve the value, but above all selling or not, the best reason for improving your bathroom is that it is a room you use every day.

Complimenting Colours From Houzz – Adding a touch of black

Home remodelling and design website Houzz featured one of our most stylish bathrooms radiators in their Every Room Needs a Little Bit of Black feature. Bisque Radiators offer a stylish touch to any room and work well against a number of different backgrounds as you can see from the feature, including black!

Black seems to be gaining popularity in the design world with a number of interior designers using this colour, or non-colour as it may be known as a feature in a room or to make something else ‘pop’. Follow the advice of the Houzz designers and ass some black. “Black is not a colour that needs to be repeated in a room. Just one bold accent.”

It can change a dimension of a room, turning a boring and monotone room into something far more exciting. You don’t have to go over the top with black accents, try just a ceiling, feature wall or even floor to help make the rest of your room stand out.

Bisque Radiators, especially the Bisque Quadrato Towel Radiators which was featured, add a stylish touch to any room. The simple and striking design looks create against a bold colour wall, take inspiration from the image, “Black shines when paired with a magenta wall…”and add a splash of colour to your bathroom, teaming it with black tiles. The radiators come in white and chrome and would work well in any modern and stylish bathroom.

Geberit Sigma40 DuoFresh Odour Extraction Flush Plate

Ventilation and clean air in a bathroom or company washroom is not only very desirable, but sensible too. This is often achieved by the use of extractor systems, but these are sometimes difficult to install in some areas. However Geberit has designed a system that ensures that bathrooms and washrooms can maintain good quality clean air whenever they are used.

By utilising a system of replaceable carbon filters the air in these rooms is clean and fresh, the Geberit Sigma40 is quiet compact and very efficient in use. The wall-mounted unit is as easy to maintain as it to use and the filters are easily accessible when these need replacing. The air is cleansed and re-circulated into the area unlike other systems which mask and smell with heady perfumes. Programmed to shut off after ten minutes of use, energy consumption is kept to an environmentally-friendly minimum and the bathroom odour free.

Available in a range of attractive colours which are black, white, umbra glass, white glass, and black glass, the Geberit 40 flush plate should be matched to the Geberit DuoFresh WC Frame 1.12m with Odour Extraction.
