Bringing any room to life can be as easy as painting it another colour, changing the accessories, or simply adding a feature wall. In the bathroom, this is no different. Creating a feature wall in this private space can produce an eye-catching design by adding interest in this area
The kitchen is the heart of a home, a common meeting place for you and your family and that’s why you should invest in it. Perhaps it’s time to give your kitchen a face lift, but you may be concerned about where to start and what challenges you might be faced with.
There’s no better place to relax in your home than in your bathroom. Often referred to as the inner sanctuary of the home, the bathroom of today serves a far greater function than that of its predecessor. No longer used for just basic hygiene, today’s bathroom is a space where one spends hours relaxing and unwinding after a stressful day. As such the basic elements used to design and shape the character of the bathroom are more dynamic than ever before
There are few things that can refresh you like a shower. Today’s home owners are choosing practical solutions for bathrooms as opposed to excessive features like oversized bathtubs that have accompanied previous decades. The market right now boasts shower features such as multiple body jets, hydro-therapy and rain showers, to mention a few.
There was a time when neat tiles with complementary cabinetry and a mirror on the wall were enough for your bathroom. Today tells a different story as home owners are now in favour of adding feature walls that make a statement. Experts attribute this trend to people wanting to create personalised spaces throughout the home.
Just like fashion and everything else in life, décor also has emerging trends. Gone are the days of dingy shower cubicles and minute shower heads, today the modern shower is earning its rightful place in the most stylish bathrooms. Kate van Niekerk, marketing manager of Tile Africa, shares her expertise to help you bring your outdated shower in line with the latest trends and designs.
Whether you are revamping or just redecorating your bathrooms, keeping up with the trends is definitely something of the past. Creating your own style is now the dominating trend. This gives you free reign to take control and create a bathroom that is reflective of you and your style, whatever it may be.
Your flooring choice plays a vital role in the decor and functionality of your bathroom. It is for this reason that choosing your ideal flooring should not be taken lightly. At the moment the trends reflect porcelain and ceramic tiles in natural and glamorous styles as these are still popular with home owners. Earthy, neutral colours and earth tone colours are also still popular with those who are renovating or creating a new bathroom space.
