When it comes to making home improvements, the first question is often which part of your abode do you feel you would like to give a new lease of life to first.
Many of us have neither the money nor the time to renovate every room at once, so choosing wisely is a must. You need to select a space that is in need of a fresh approach, while also considering the likely impact it will have. So, as spring approaches, why not give an innovative and fresh design makeover to your bathroom? If one expert is to be believed, it seems many of us already are.
Lesley Taylor, interior designer and design director at Taylor’s Etc, said there are a number of materials that are “really popular” at the moment. And it seems many of these are high-class, luxurious options that may not have previously been up for grabs. “With the bathroom being viewed as a special retreat or sanctuary to relax and unwind in, it’s the more luxurious of materials that are taking precedence,” she stated, before identifying metallics, woods and stones as among the most in-demand options.
“Tiles used to be considered a practical element of the design process but over the past few years that view has changed dramatically. Now, tiles can be used in a creative fashion to add aesthetic appeal,” Ms Taylor continued. With this in mind, it might be the perfect time to hire a tradesman in order to give your bathroom a lift. Instructing him to use one of the materials cited by Ms Taylor could be one way to ensure you keep up with all the latest styles and trends.
Interior designer Carolyn Parker recently recommended stone as a good flooring material. She remarked that it is highly practical and likely to last forever.
