Bathrooms have become less fussy in the design of their sanitary-ware, which has allowed furniture items to creep into the room and give the space a softer feel. These days it is not unusual to find a statement chair, artwork or chandelier appearing in the bathroom, making this area of your home less of a functional and stark space and, instead, a room for relaxation and rejuvenation. Updating your bathroom does not have to break the bank: for example, changing small details such as decorative items or a shower screen, or updating your taps, can make subtle changes that instantly make your bathroom look contemporary and on-trend.
