Lighting
Lighting
Variable lighting is the key to a bedroom that you can adapt to suit your moods. LED spotlights set along the edges of the floor will give you unusual and discrete uplighting for that sophisticated feel.
Glass splash back
Glass splash back
Bring a completely individual touch into your bathroom with a bespoke glass splashback over the basin. This small but colourful touch will give you dazzling colours combining with elegant practicality.
Bath

If you've got the space, a free standing roll-top bath creates a great centrepiece for your bathroom and of course it's great for those long, relaxing soaks.
Art

Top Tip
