Home Comforts

As we have been spending more time at home, adding a touch of comfort to the bathroom is a trend set to grow in 2021. Scented candles or diffusers, soft fluffy towels, seating in the bathroom, make the room more than just a bathroom, but an inviting area you want to spend more time escaping to.

Re-Connecting with Nature

Using natural materials and house plants will help us to re-connect with nature. The lock downs we endured in 2020 have increased our use and need for beautiful countryside, many of us discovering new parks, walks, woodlands and beaches that were on our doorstep but never before explored. Bringing elements of the outdoors into our homes helps to invigorate our minds and connect us back to nature.

Wet Rooms

Year, after year, the popularity of wet rooms increases, and the trend is set to continue in and beyond 2021. Suitable for the main bathroom, en-suites and loft conversions, they offer the greatest flexibility for bathroom layouts. Even the smallest of rooms can be created into a wet room.

Easy to keep clean, more spacious as the need for shower doors are eliminated, and accessible for all users with no step, and therefore no barrier, to enter the shower area.

Environmentally Conscious

Choosing the right products in the bathroom, can help to significantly reduce your water consumption, which is not only good for the environment but also good for your wallet!

And also in our search for natural products we also need to ensure they are sustainable, making sure we look out for logos such as the FSC certificate, which confirms the products you choose are responsibility sourced.
