If I had to say what my favourite room in the whole house was, I would have to say that after the bedroom (because of the sleeping, silly), it’s the bathroom for me. I love having super long, luxurious, decadent showers. I also have a collection of shower gels and soaps that many people would deem unnecessary, but then, I have no time for such haters in my life.
After kitchens, bathrooms are the most important room in the house and perhaps the next most expensive. There are no hard and fast rules to building a brand new bathroom or renovating an existing one, other than the importance of the highest standard of workmanship in waterproofing and plumbing.
When it comes to tiles we tend to think of the wet areas of the house - kitchen, bathroom and laundries. But there are so many styles, shapes, sizes and materials of tiles available for many more uses than just our wet areas including floors and walls for living rooms, entry halls, fireplaces and stairs, not to mention outdoor areas such as verandahs, terraces, pathways, entertaining areas and pools.
