We are planning to have moved into our new home before the end of the year, we still don't know where this new home will be exactly but most likely closer to the city centre and a place we can settle for little bit longer than the small Welsh cottage that we have slowly been trying to improve since we moved in more than two years ago.
We are hoping our next property will be little lighter with more natural light and higher ceilings as John is a little fed up with hitting door frames in our low ceiling house. We love older houses and neither of us are fan's of new builds so a Victorian bay fronted property would be ideal and would also provide a space that could be modern yet retain some original features.
One of the rooms I cannot wait to get stuck into designing is the bathroom, our current one as quaint and cosy as it is is in the eaves and an awkward shape so it would be nice to have something a little bit more standard in size and where we can add a few luxury features. The house before the current one we live in we had a beautiful large rain shower and would like to install one of those again as well as a roll top or free standing bath such as the Riho Seth bath similar to the one below from Superbath which has an amazing selection.
It's surprising how many people overlook bathrooms but they are really key and a space you should invest in, especially if it's a longterm family home as not only will you be spending a lot of time in your bathroom but it's also a space that friends and family will use. What is great about a bathroom is small changes can make a huge difference and you don't need to restyle or redesign the whole thing to bring a touch of luxury style to your space, for example just changing the taps can have a huge impact. Also having nice linen, towels and soap will also add to the overall appeal of your bathroom. I have put a little wish list together of a few items i'm loving at the moment
