  • Budget-Friendly Bathroom Upgrades

And besides, it's just the bathroom – it's completely forgivable for the bathroom to be out of style. But the truth is, the bathroom is supposed to be your sanctuary. It's supposed to be that area of your home where you can fully, completely relax. So yes, even the bathroom deserves a little character and style.

  • Using Metallic Accents Inside Your Home

    Be inspired by the extremes

    Wherever you look, there is no escaping the current trend for metallic accents through the home. Favoured by professional interior designers but a simple enough trend to create yourself, metallic accents are becoming more popular and the movement is showing no signs of moving soon. In fact, the metallic trend is growing and becoming more dynamic, giving us even more choices in our homes and even creating sub-trends. The first styles that come to mind for most people when they think of metallic in interior design is the minimal and industrial styles that give a cool and quirky factory vibe, or in the complete opposite direction we have the ultimate glamour home, filled with plush textures, glitter, mirrors and metallic surfaces and features. Both are very bold options, but from both of these trends we can choose the flavours we like and don’t like, and use those ideas to create our own metallic-themed interior design scheme.

No, you can add a bit of glamour by simply changing a few things, and not necessarily all at once. Here’s some of our favourite ideas right here:

    Tiling trouble

    It’s time to rip out those 80s square white tiles and replace them with something a tad more up-to-date such as a smart wall of rectangular subway tiles, coloured mosaics or even stone such as granite or basalt. Meanwhile it’s a very modern invention to zone off areas in the bathroom such as the shower using wall tiles rather than steps. These glossy subway tiles are just the thing for this industrial style bathroom (gloss has the added advantage of adding more light to the room by reflecting the window):
