Laurent Bathroom, May 01st , 2017. Choose furniture and accessories wisely, bring a nostalgic touch to the bathroom by upcycling a narrow console table to incorporate a small basin. Space-saving wall-mounted taps provide a neat solution. The more of the floor you can see, the more spacious your bathroom will feel, so go for a freestanding basin unit. Plus, you can pop a few baskets underneath if you’re short on storage space.
Laurent Bathroom, May 01st , 2017. The taps were replaced. ‘It’s amazing how much difference such a small change has made,’ say the owners. With regards to storage, the couple found a tall mirrored cabinet at Ikea, which fits behind the door and is great for keeping everything neatly tidied away. The mirrored front also reflects light from the window on the opposite wall, making the room feel really bright.

A downstairs cloakroom is a prime space to use wallpaper, as bathrooms with a shower or bath will require specialist paper to prevent steam damaging it. Opt for a unique, bold or interesting print to maximise the impact in a small space like this. Fit a sheet of Perspex as a splashback behind the basin to prevent water damaging the wallpaper.

Refreshing blue-greens, pale shades needn’t lack punch,’ says Jamie Telford, Director, Roundhouse. ‘We love the refreshing tones of this paint colour, which has a blue base warmed with green. It can be lifted further with limed-oak flooring and chunky oaks shelves. We doubt you’ll ever tire of it, but if you do the beauty of a painted kitchen is that the colour can be easily changed.
Laurent Bathroom, May 01st , 2017. Invest in made-to-measure fittings and fixtures, a well-thought-out design can fit all the essentials into as little as two square metres for a bathroom and even less for a shower room. The key is not to squeeze too much in. If you only have a small space, it’s much better to make a focal point of a walk-in shower or a beautiful bath, rather than ending up with a cramped bathroom.
Laurent Kitchen, May 10th , 2017. An L-shaped kitchen works well in an open-plan kitchen design. A row of kitchen units runs along one side of the ‘L’, while a row of low-level units runs along the jutting out portion of the ‘L’ – an easy way to create a barrier between the kitchen prep and dining or living zones.

Wooden beams and walls are painted ivory to keep the look as light as possible and a freestanding sideboard is a great storage alternative to wall cabinets.

Laurent Kitchen, May 06th , 2017. Cream kitchens are one of the most popular styles – with other colours such as ivory, off-white and buttermilk also popular choices. This colour lends itself to a number of decorating styles, from rustic to contemporary. A new kitchen is a huge investment, so it’s no surprise that so many of us opt for a shade that will stand the test of time. You might choose an ultra-modern glossy cream kitchen that combines streamlined cabinetry with the latest appliances, or perhaps use painted cream cupboards to transform a cottage kitchen that has low ceilings.
Laurent Bathroom, May 03rd , 2017. Opt for a corner shower enclosure, if there’s no space for a bath, a shower enclosure will work perfectly. Corner designs take up very little room – the door on this shower slides around the frame, so it doesn’t need any more space than what you can see. Square versions can be designed in a similar way – just avoid swinging or pivot doors, which will need extra room.
