The Biggest Plumbing Myths Homeowners Get Wrong
We want to share with you the biggest and most common myths that most homeowners assume to be the truth when it comes to plumbing. These home truths are probably any plumber’s worst nightmare… but we’ve got to learn somehow haven’t we.
Firstly, and probably the costliest… ‘a leaking faucet, is just a leaking faucet!’ WRONG! These can be detrimental to your water bills and could single handily lead to the wearing of your fixtures, including rust and mould growth over a period. We know they aren’t too di
Interior Inspiration: Florals
Florals: some may think they are gone and forgotten in interior design, however, never underestimate the power of a recurring trend! With florals of all kinds constantly being in and out of fashion, we think that they should be considered an interior staple in your home. Whether you like to be subtle or not florals can always, somehow, be incorporated into any room of the house; and the bathroom is absolutely no exception.
Make Your Bathroom Traditional
A traditional bathroom will never fall short of beautiful…
Baths are a very traditional feature in any home, as before showers were a thing, baths were the only thing around for people to wash. Free standing baths are more in keeping with the trend however we recommend getting a bath with decorative feet on it. As well as decorative feet, opt for a very traditional roll top bath for ultimate luxury.
People instantly assume the bathroom is a women’s meeting point, a place to chat and reapply their lipstick. However, a masculine bathroom on the other hand, is a place decorated in class and simplistic luxury. Often based on mature and simple decor a masculine bathroom exudes sophistication that any woman would also dream of using. With shades of black, white and grey often used accompanied with simple, clean lines masculine bathrooms are clinical in layout not to mention the undoubted purpose being the soul focus of the rooms design.

Make your Bathroom Moisture Proof
Ceilings: it’s important to treat your bathroom with respect especially when it comes to ceilings… this is the place where bathroom moisture can collect in the form of condensation. Also, directly above, splashing from the shower is more frequent than you think, this direct contact with water can damage paintwork or the ceiling surface over time. There are a few options out there to cater for this issue. Firstly, considering what you are going to line the ceiling with is essential... we recommend Drywall or treated Drywall. The treated Drywall, although more expensive, is specifically designed for damper environments, its treated to ensure its ext
Incorporate Colour into Your Bathroom
Colour contrast- two words that can frighten anyone. With this look be bold and loud and make it known that the colour contrast was fully intentional. Chose colours from apposing sides of the colour wheel and watch the magic happen. If you’re too afraid of the full opaque colour, then opt for more subtle pastel versions of the chosen colours.
