Bathroom Flooring Made Beautiful
The very best bathrooms should be all about luxuriousness and relaxation. After long hard days this space should feel like a haven, before nights out it should feel like a glamorous day spa. But bathrooms are often some of the trickiest spaces in your home to decorate, with all sorts of appliances and fittings which are difficult and costly to update and change on a regular basis.
One aspect of any bathroom which can make a surprisingly significant impact is its flooring. Tired out carpet or lino are an instant drain on any bathroom, making any home improvements look less than lovely, no matter how inspired. A good quality, beautiful bathroom floor, however, offers this space an instant facelift, making it feel more luxurious almost immediately. And there are all sorts of different ways to create this effect which you can tailor to suit your personal style. We love this blog from Victoria Plum as a starting point – take a peek and get inspired!

Size Matters: Which Width?
When you’re planning to install a real wood floor, you may mull over wood type, wood colour, the wood stain you’re going to use. In most cases, you probably won’t give the width of the wood much thought. Yet the width of wood floorboards can make a big difference to the appearance of the finished product – and your home – making it appear bigger, smaller, wider, you name it! This helpful blog from Peak Wood has some absolutely indispensable advice (and handy diagrams!) to help you make the right choice.
