Go Centrepiece

Another way to jazz up your bathroom without having to redo the entire interior is to create a focal point with key items such as tub, sinks and basins deliberately.

Free-standing tub

Re-create the spa feeling at home by having a free-standing tub – it makes clear that the bathroom is for relaxation, and relaxation only, and imbues a sense of luxury and pampering in your own home.
