“Do You Want It After Me?” – Who Does & Who Doesn’t Share The Bath Water?

Coronation Street fans took to Twitter last night to express their horror and despair at street favourite Tyrone, as he asked his partner Alina a very contentious question.

After discussing the whereabouts of a Weatherfield teddy bear – that was bought for their unborn child – the Corrie stalwart said “do you want it after me?” when referring to the bath water he was just about to lie in! 

This sparked a furious debate on Twitter and beyond, with many people left reeling at the thought of Alina sharing Tyrone’s bath water.

But, taking a dip in the tub after your partner isn’t as uncommon as you think! 

In a recent survey we found that almost 1-in-5 of 35-44 year olds (Tyrone’s age group) actually shared their bath water regularly. 

The figures drop off for younger (18-24) and more elderly age groups (65+) – but it would seem sharing the bath water is not as uncommon as the Twittersphere would have us believe.

Why Share The Bath Water?

There could be several reasons for sharing a bath with your partner. 

There’s the obvious romantic evening you could enjoy with a glass or two of the bubbly stuff.

But we think Tyrone’s approach is more about saving on the water bill and that he is perhaps a little more water conscious than we give him credit for!

So, to find out who WILL and who WILL NOT sit in someone else’s muck – we asked the residents of 15 cities in the UK & Northern Ireland who does and who doesn’t share a bath!

Who Is Sharing Bath Water?

As Weatherfield is a suburb of the great city of Manchester, it would be remiss of us to start anywhere else. 

And, it would appear that Tyrone is not alone on the bath sharing idea, as 21.3% of those Mancunians polled said they had no issue with sharing their bath time. 

However, it was Belfast that came out on top – by a solitary 0.1% – as 21.4% of those asked in Northern Ireland said they were happy to dip in after their partners.

Who Isn’t Sharing Bath Water?

Those UK residents sharing the sentiments of many a Corrie fan – and who are not too happy to jump in someone else’s filth – are the people of Edinburgh; with just 4.5% of those polled saying they are happy to share the tub. 

Elsewhere, Scousers & Nottinghamians are not big fans of their partners’ leftover bath water either, with just 7% of Liverpudlians and 6.6% of Nottingham residents sharing a bath.

 Do You Share Your Bath Water?

How do you feel about sharing your bath water with your partner? 

Is it something you do to save water, or do you do it for some other reason?

9 Reasons You Need To Shower In The Morning

What Makes An A.M Shower An Essential Vice?

As a broad generalization, two main profiles exist as it pertains to those who take showers on a daily basis – people who hit the shower in the morning and those who prefer to cleanse in the evening.

For those that tend to go for the latter option, the main reasons typically relate to feelings of relaxation and hoping to unwind after a long or stressful day. The morning showerers are usually seeking a refreshing boost to awaken the senses, and kick off their day in an invigorating fashion.

But, do the benefits of one shower routine outweigh those associated with the other?

The title of our blog has probably already indicated so, and the rest of this article will cover the numerous health advantages that would appear to set morning showers apart…

1. Improved Skin Condition

From a general perspective, showers are beneficial with regards to skin health. But morning showers are actually considered to be more advantageous.

Indeed, a shower taken early doors is a greater help in combating acne, and also in terms of balancing the natural oils on the skin.

2. Ease Stress And Anxiety

Woman taking a shower

Plenty of people experience the sensation of early-morning stress and anxiety, often linked to the prospect of the multitude of tasks that will populate the day ahead.

A morning shower offers an excellent means to tackle this stress, especially in the case of lukewarm or cold showers, as explained in greater detail on our blog – Cold Shower vs Hot Shower: What Are The Benefits?

Simply put, morning showers guarantee your body receives the oxygen it requires. Sufficient oxygen presence in the brain will help you to de-stress, no matter how busy your day ahead might be.

3. Enhanced Immunity

The immune system can be enhanced by morning showers, which will stimulate the body to produce new white blood cells. These cells are then used to help fight off illness.

Our biological clock represents the reasoning for this process only occurring to a significant extent during morning showers.

4. Cough Relief

As well as improving immunity from sickness to begin with, morning showers also provide a superb vice to relieve any existing colds or coughs.

In such a condition, phlegm and mucus can build up in the throat and chest areas overnight, making for an uncomfortable morning experience battling a sore throat and persistent cough.

With a hot morning shower, the emanating steam will loosen up these unwanted substances and help to clear your sinuses and enable you to feel much more comfortable in very little time.

For the very best effect, indulge in an aromatherapy shower with the use of scented shower gels and eucalyptus oils, accentuated by the full coverage provided by a modern shower system.

5. Boosted Energy

Probably the most simple reason on the list. Morning showers represent a preferable choice for many due to the sense of rejuvenation they provide.

All in all, they deliver the perfect refreshing energy boost to kick start your day, preparing you in earnest for whatever tasks lie ahead.

6. Rids The Body Of Toxins

A multitude of toxins emerge from the skin whilst we sweat during sleeping overnight. And these same toxins can even formulate whilst relaxing in the high temperature surrounds of a home bathtub, for instance.

Morning showers are an ideal vice for washing these away, and therefore ridding the body of toxins.

7. Better Hair & Scalp Condition

By taking regular morning showers, you’ll notice an improvement in the condition of your hair and scalp.

If you are dealing with an extremely oily scalp and hair, even an evening shower will not prevent the areas from remaining oily to some extent by the following morning.

Taking frequent morning showers is an obvious but failsafe method to dodge or curtail this issue.

8. Muscle Ache Relaxation

Any niggling muscle aches or pains can be alleviated greatly by taking a morning shower, ultimately relaxing the body and achieving a comfortable physical state.

Essentially, morning showers can help you feel far less tense from both a mental and physical perspective, providing the perfect foundations to attack the day ahead from your very own shower enclosure.

9. Increased Fertility

It might surprise you to learn that morning showers have been linked to increased fertility levels in the male population.

So if couples are having difficulty conceiving, or even just planning ahead to conceive, it is worth the male indulging in frequent morning showers to garner the potential positive effects.

Again, cold showers can be especially useful in this regard. The cold water can trigger testosterone, and more importantly, research indicates that male sperm production is enhanced dramatically after just a week’s worth of cold morning showers.

Spotlight on International Projects

Like most industries, the construction sector experienced a whirlwind of changes in 2020 and beyond. With the cost of building materials skyrocketing and labor shortages increasing, more are turning to prefab building solutions for their lean manufacturing techniques and ability to help keep projects on track. As a result, the market for modular is growing as the construction industry continues to adopt prefabricated solutions.

Here at SurePods we’re proud to support this growth—and even see it extend to distant places. With wide-ranging experience, our modular bathroom pods can ship to Canada and select international locations, depending on project needs. To showcase how we’ve seen modular building’s evolving technology help fuel innovation across the globe, we’re taking a look back at some noteworthy international projects that we’ve worked on to date:

Nassau, Bahamas

Situated on Nassau’s northern shore, Grand Hyatt Baha Mar is a spectacular 1,800-room oceanfront resort that opened spring 2017. With two distinct towers and a variety of rooms, suites and residences, SurePods was the perfect match to prefabricate the beautiful custom bathroom units, all with 5-star quality. The pods were fabricated in Orlando, FL, and shipped to the jobsite via ocean container, eliminating thousands of man hours from the project site.

Ontario, Canada

In the development of their new retirement community located in Ontario, Canada, Seasons Retirement Homes enlisted SurePods to deliver 147 beautifully designed bathroom pods for seamless “plug-and-play” installs across the U.S. border. With the grand opening scheduled for early 2022, SurePods was able to provide quality bathrooms in line with a tight and efficient construction schedule. Plus, each pod features materials and fixtures all carefully selected by the project design team.

Montreal, QC, Canada

Taking up over two full blocks in the heart of downtown Montreal, the Centre hospitalier de l’Université de Montréal (CHUM) is one of North America’s largest academic medical centers. To help replace the outdated facility’s bathrooms in such a large volume, SurePods took on their largest P3 project to date. Supplying 669 pods, our single-source approach supported the institution’s clinical design and programming solution that stresses quality and expedient solutions.

Keeping Clean On Company Time?

>How The Pandemic Has Changed Our Cleaning Habits

The last 18 months or so have seen many of us working from home for extended periods of time – and we’ve been taking advantage of this in a range of different ways.

Somewhat safe in the knowledge that we can get up and take things a bit slower than we normally would, some of us stay up past our “usual” bedtime and get out of bed a little later. 

Others kick back in the garden and enjoy a few extra minutes on their lunch break, knowing full well that an additional 15 minutes of lazing in the sun “won’t do any harm”.

And then there are those of us who have decided to shower or bathe on company time. 

That’s right, we British like to talk about the “stiff upper lip” and “just getting on with it”, but we’re just as guilty as everyone else when it comes to getting that little extra time away from our workspace!

Taking Advantage Of The Boss Not Watching

We surveyed 2000 people and found that around 1-in-10 of us were either taking more showers or having more baths since we started working from home. 

And that’s no bad thing, really, as we all know that there are many of us who have taken to showering a lot less since we weren’t allowed to leave the house!

But with the boss not being around to watch us (though that would be weird), we found that men were more likely to take advantage of working from home, with 10% of those surveyed saying they were taking more baths in lockdown – compared to 6.2% of women.

3.8% of men and 3.6% of women have also started taking baths on their lunch breaks, with 7.8% of those aged 18-24 most likely to take the plunge when they should really be fuelling up for an afternoon of work.

And of all the cities in the UK, residents of Southampton are more likely to try and get away from their home office desks, with 10.2% taking more baths in lockdown and 8.2% using their dinner break to have a nice relaxing soak.

re We Really Using Company Time To Take Get Clean?

Making The Most Of Our Bathtubs

Although many more of us are now taking baths in our lunch breaks, the question of whether we are actually eating into company time – and being paid to get clean – still remains. 

The average UK lunch break is 34 minutes – but according to our study, we spend an average of 25 minutes in the bath, so perhaps we’re being a bit hasty calling out the UK’s workforce! 

However, if 25 minutes is the average, that means some of us are spending a lot longer in the bath than others – so who is it? 

Well, according to our data, 35-44 year olds tend to spend a little longer soaking away their worries than anybody else, with 25% of them taking over 45 minutes in the tub. 

However, the biggest offenders for extended lunchtime bathtub breaks are actually the over 55’s – as 6.5% of them freely admit to spending well over an hour giving themselves that “prune-like” glow!

nd Sneaking A Shower

For showers, it’s a little different and perhaps not as naughty as it is taking a bath. 

Of those surveyed, we found that many people only took around 10 minutes to take a shower – which leaves ample time for a bite to eat in the remaining 24 minutes of the average lunch break. 

However, some residents of London (2.5%), Birmingham (1.4%) and Nottingham (1.5%) did say they spent in excess of 25 minutes showering, leaving little time to dry themselves off before needing to be back at their desks. 

Men were marginally more guilty of taking their time in the shower, with 1.3% of those asked stating they spent over half an hour in there, compared to 1.2% of women. 

And it was the millennials in the survey that showered for the longest, with an average shower time of 12.2 minutes, with 5% of that age group taking over 30 minutes in the shower!

What Happens When We Go Back To The Office?

With all this extra time being spent showering and bathing while working from home, it begs the question – what will employers do to accommodate this new-found desire to keep clean when we get back to the office? 

If companies allow a “smoke break” for those people dependent on nicotine, will they have to start allocating time for people wanting shower and bathtub breaks too?

Maybe we’re on the road towards showers and freestanding bathtubs in every office in the country! 

Perhaps we’ll see employees demanding contracts that state they must be allowed to take showers on site and enjoy the relaxation a bath can offer on a daily basis! 

Who really knows? 

One thing is for certain, however, the “new normal” is not as “normal” as we think, and in years to come don’t be surprised to find yourself walking past your colleague in their bath robe, making their way back to their desk, smelling strongly of Original Source or Dove. 

I for one support these possible changes, if only for the singing in the shower competitions that are likely to come about when everyone has got used to it all!

Have You Changed Since Working From Home?

We’ve all been through a lot in the last year and a half, and we’d love to hear how you are doing things differently than before the pandemic began.

Debunking the Myth: Repeatable Units Do Not mean Cookie Cutter Design

Modular construction has proven itself a faster, more versatile, and high-quality building option. Yet, misconceptions continue to persist as the technologically advanced process deviates from the familiarity of traditional building methods. One common myth is that the repeatable units produced in large quantities during the modular construction process rely solely on ready-made design with little creative flexibility and diminished quality.

While prefabrication does enable production in large quantities, by no means does higher volume equate to lower quality. In the case of SurePods modular bathroom pods, our factory-controlled setting actually allows for higher quality finishes. To illustrate, our relatively thin floor assemblies support a smaller threshold and tighter tolerances. With this, modular bathrooms automatically adhere to ADA requirements while offering slim profiles and eliminating excess labor costs.

Of course, bathroom pods do work best in any market with a repeatable design, including multi-unit residential, healthcare facilities, hospitality, student living and assisted and senior living facilities. But this does not mean prefab is synonymous with lackluster units. Modular solutions simply need higher quantities to substantiate set up and production—not because of any creative deficiency.

In fact, modular construction can involve a great deal of creativity. With equal design collaboration between the manufacturer and client starting at the pre-design phase, every prefabricated project involves some degree of customization. From basic apartment bathrooms all the way to five-star level hotel finishes, the design is completely dependent on what the client wants and specifies. To emphasize this creative design process, SurePods even offers ample options for customizations on pods where dimensions don’t change. From trim and fixtures to accessories and more, building professionals can enjoy fully tailored bathroom components.

For large scale projects on a fixed schedule or those facing expensive or unavailable skilled local labor, consider the significant advantages of the creative and quality prefab approach.

It’s Time to Level-Up Your Laundry’s Functionality

Ideally, the layout of your home should be separated into resting areas and services areas. Your home’s laundry should be located in the same area as the kitchen; this creates a good split between quiet areas for relaxing to loud amenity areas, where washing machines and refrigerators are continually running.

Although if your home is on a small lot and space is limited, you can integrate your laundry into the service rooms like the bathroom or kitchen. Again, tucking the loud washing machines away from chill-out zones and entertaining areas.

The Best Functional Laundry Storage

The first step in your modern renovation should be to choose laundry appliances, ensuring that the cabinetry fits around desired devices and not the other way around—details such as bench depth and the direction in which doors open need to be considered first.

When planning your laundry’s layout, the next priority should be to add as much varied storage as possible. Modern laundries should include a good combination of cupboards, benchtop surface, drawers, clothing poles, open and closed storage. The following are the most popular and useful types of storage we use in Novalé modern laundry renovations.

Tall cupboards which reach from the floor to the ceiling are best used to store long and oddly shaped items like brooms, mops and vacuum cleaners. Maximise the highest shelves to store chemicals and cleaning products, so they are out of reach from children and pets.

Horizontal poles and railings are convenient additions to your laundry and relatively easy to install. Air dry your clothes on indoor rails for crease-free clothes and avoid the ironing.

Speaking of ironing boards – today, there are many built-in and hideaway models available, the perfect way to save space and reduce clutter. Most models fold away effortlessly onto the wall, and include some form of smart technology, like safety timers, motion detected lighting and height-adjustable features.

Increase the floor space in your laundry with built-in laundry baskets, Novalé can integrate unique features, like clever slide-out designs, into custom cabinetry. Unlike typical laundry baskets, custom built-ins allow for more organisation, for example, opt for two baskets to sort light clothing from dark clothing into separate bins.

The best part of renovating from scratch is making sure all your unique requirements are met, including your pets! While laundries are commonly an ideal spot for pets when their owners are out of the house, it is essential to make sure the area is as comfortable as possible for them, with outside access where possible. This might also include a built-in spot for your dogs’ bed, a designated place for a cat’s litter box or extra bench space for a pet cage.

Adequate ventilation is often an overlooked consideration when designing your perfect modern laundry. Particularly for homes which often airdry washing inside their laundry without proper ventilation materials can be susceptible to mould build-up. In these cases, open storage is the solution, from recessed shelving and glass door cabinets. It allows fabrics to dry fast before the next use to eliminate most possibilities of germs spreading. The right styling in open storage can give your laundry a designer look —the perfect place to display plants, family pictures or fresh towels.

All in all, the most essential element for a functional space is to ensure structural materials are suitable for the area’s desired use. Make sure each aspect in your laundry is ideal for a wet and humid room, where slip-proof and non-porous materials are chosen to avoid likely accidents to household members and the materials themselves.

A Much-Needed Laundry Detox

The laundry is often the junk drawer for the entire house and primarily an over-ignored room. Anything that is out of expiry, you no longer have use for or hasn’t been used recently can be removed and replaced.

When detoxing your laundry, it is vital to make sure the chemicals and other cleaning products you use are not harmful, especially when you have pets and children in your home. Opt for organic products with plant-based ingredients; this will give you peace of mind that your clothes and home are free of dangerous toxins and chemicals.

To learn more useful detox hacks, read Novale’s previous article to discover The Secrets to How Often You Should Clean Your Bathroom. Or for a mental detox read Novale’s recommended wellness routines to Turn Your Bathroom Into a Spa for 2021.

The Secrets to How Often You Should Clean Your Bathroom

If you share your house with continuously sick children, grubby roommates or stubborn partners, it is challenging to navigate the age-old question, how often should I clean my bathroom?

While some people find cleaning their spaces quite relaxing, there are dozens of wellbeing products which can equally reduce your stress, discover Novale’s recommended wellness routines to turn your bathroom into a spa in 2021. Although before you add new products into your space, it is always important to first clear out the products which no longer spark joy.

Bathroom Fabrics: Towels, Mats and Everything In-Between

Fabrics in the bathroom are pretty much an epicentre for germs, as bathrooms are humid spaces, even a slightly damp material is the perfect breeding ground for bacteria.

Hence, it is essential to make sure your towel and bathrobe can be spaciously hung, allowing fabrics to dry fast before the next use; this will eliminate some possibility of germs spreading. A helpful tip could be upgrading your tired cotton bath towels to fast-drying linen towels.

Although a general rule of thumb is to wash towels after every third use and wash your bathmat weekly. Bathroom fabrics should be replaced every few years or replaced when they no longer absorb properly. If someone in your household becomes sick, you should wash all your bathroom fabrics immediately, to avoid the risk of spreading the illness to other people.

In general, you should stop using shower poufs, body sponges, loafers, bath mitts and all disposable body washing materials. Not only are they made of micro-plastics, which causes harm to the environment, but are a breeding ground for germs. Studies have found some rather dangerous skin infections as a result of not frequently replacing bathroom fabrics. Instead, opt for exfoliating scrubs and body washes that contain natural ingredients, the best part is, there are millions of DIY recipes online so you can make your skin glow with inexpensive products, like leftover coffee grounds.


Yep, once again, science provides some frightening studies, as your toothbrush is home to over 100 million living bacteria. Alike most hygiene items in your bathroom, you should keep your toothbrush in a clean, cool and dry spot.

A helpful way to eliminate the spread of germs on your toothbrush is to include lots of closed storage in your next bathroom renovation, such as under-sink cupboards or mirror cabinets. See some of Novale’s recent bathroom renovations to discover smart ways to keep your toothbrush and other health products hygienic. If your toothbrush isn’t drying before you want to use it again, it’s time to find a new storage spot.

All in all, an easy way to keep track of how often you should replace your toothbrush, is to bring out a new brush with each season, totalling to four a year. Although if you have been sick, you should start with a new brush after you have recovered.

What Products are Safe for Bathroom Storage?

It is all too tempting to dump every bottle of medicine, jewellery, beauty and hygiene products in your bathroom. However, most people forgot to check if the packaging of these products can even withstand the humid conditions of the bathroom.

Be mindful of moist packaging, rusting jewellery, broken beauty products, deteriorating fragrances, mouldy pages in books and magazines. Instead, opt for products that are hypoallergenic and have a high resistance to moisture and temperature, for example, swap plastic water bottles for glass carafes.

Start Your Detox for a New Bathroom Renovation Now

While this article is the ultimate guide to how often you should clean your bathroom space and how often you should replace the items in your bathroom. There are a lot of smart bathroom renovation tips which encourage a hygienic household, save time, reduce cleaning stresses and reduce mould build-up. You can discover strategic placements for sanitary bathroom appliances, smart technologies that encourage minimal touching of surfaces and many more innovative ways to reduce the spread of germs.

5 Peaceful Palettes to Inspire Your Bathroom Renovation

When life becomes stressful, the need to withdraw and recharge becomes stronger than ever. If you are looking to lower your day-to-day stress levels, the colour palette of your bathroom can help soothe anxieties and stresses from your day.

Besides, what’s a better activity to entice clam than a hot soak in a soothing tub surrounded by a beautiful haven?

It’s no secret that colour influences our emotions. So, whether you’re seeking to regain some Zen or just sick of gazing at the same old walls. Here are five modern bathroom designs featuring the most soothing palettes to inspire your next bathroom renovation.


Natural Bathroom Renovation

As technology continues to pervade every area of our lives, more and more of us are yearning for nature like never before and seeking innovative methods to incorporate organic materials into our homes. Particularly, this natural design aesthetic is seen in many coastal homes and Bathroom Renovations in Newcastle, as the style perfectly reflects the easy-going lifestyles many of us beach-side Aussies live.

Although, the ocean view is not required! As this modern Bathroom Renovation Terrey Hills encompasses a natural aesthetic even in the suburbs. With the large skylight as its main focal feature, a glorious amount of sunlight creeps in, making the space seem brighter and larger, with a fresh and inviting feel.

We recommend avoiding picking too many vivid and strong features to ensure a relaxing atmosphere. Instead, choose one or two features’ colours, like this natural bathroom renovation, which includes a good balance of earthy hues and browns, mixed with clean tones like silver and white.


Serene Bathroom Renovation

Often inspired by ‘a day spa’, there’s something about a minimalist and calming serene palette that can transform a bathroom into a haven. The serene bathroom design evokes clean, classic, and incredibly relaxing feelings, with little restraint and a good quantity of marble, resulting in a breathtakingly tranquil finish.

Even though this modern bathroom design is popular with sea-side homes, we are seeing many suburban bathroom renovations in Penrith and across Western Sydney wanting to upgrade their spaces to a more relaxing and luxurious bathroom design.

Although this Bathroom Renovation in Kellyville Ridge is far from the beach, the design is inspired by ‘the day spa’ aesthetic. With a soft and harmonising colour palette, this modern bathroom design screams serene, generating a sense of poise inside this suburban home. Particularly with serene modern bathroom designs, it’s all about colour harmony. The more subdued and less striking a palette is, the more relaxing the bathroom may be.


Escape Bathroom Renovation

The escape bathroom is a quiet retreat within the home, inspired by our favourite vacation spots. These modern bathroom designs create a solid and well-balanced room with stunning natural features and straightforward finishes.

With soft natural light and earthy tones, the minimalism of the escape bathroom heightens your senses. So it’s simple to understand why you’ll want to make this meditative bathroom a focal point in your house.

Again, even though this modern bathroom design is popular with sea-side homes, many small bathroom renovations in Redfern and across Sydney’s highly populated CBD incorporates the escape design in their urban spaces as a way to retreat from the hustle and bustle of city living.

In particular, this Bathroom Renovation Redfern creates an escape aesthetic with wooden cabinetry and wood-like tiles. It’s an unexpected but successful escape design pairing.

We love the matching curved bathroom installations in this Bathroom Renovation Redfern from the circular bathtub, rounded basin sink, spherical fixtures to the towel rack. In combination, these round features really softens the ambience of the modern bathroom design and provides optimum relaxation for its users.

Our design team largely focuses on incorporating wood as a feature into most escape bathrooms as this style is fundamentally inspired by ‘nature’ to create a peaceful bathroom. When combined with a bathroom’s usually cold atmosphere, the wood adds warmth and makes the space much more welcoming.


Vintage Bathroom Renovation

Our vintage bathroom renovations give homeowners the traditional appearance and feel of yesteryear while still allowing for a luxurious but modern design. Vintage aesthetics are found all around Sydney, from Bathroom Renovations in Penrith to bathroom renovations in Redfern. The best-designed vintage bathrooms have a meticulous balance between period elegance and traditional appeal without compromising modern convenience.

This Bathroom Renovation Mount Colah marries old and new styles with careful placement of dark tiles in the main area against a neutral marble backdrop, seamlessly creating a perfect monochrome bathroom.

The vanity in particular highlights the sprinkles of vintage styling throughout this bathroom, with a mix of old-fashioned cabinetry and traditional knobs, contrasted to the modern vessel sink and contemporary stone vanity top.

Matte black is a stunning feature in this modern bathroom design, as a matt finish gives real colour depth as it reflects the least amount of light, producing a feeling of stillness. In addition, Low-sheen or matt finishes will help blur sharp edges and hard surfaces in spaces by absorbing and softening the light.

Timeless Bathroom Renovation

The term “timeless” is frequently used to describe elegance and sophistication. Our timeless modern bathroom designs incorporate high-quality fabrics, accessories, and colours for a traditional and elegant look that will last a lifetime. Such a classic and ageless design is perfect for any home in Sydney – from bathroom renovations Penrith and all the way to Redfern –  the timeless bathroom creates a sense of luxury anywhere while maintaining the practicality and use of the space.

This timeless Bathroom Renovation Riverview features the perfect variation of whites. This assorted but clean colour palette is seen throughout the modern bathroom design, from the sink bowl to the vanity top to the hexagon feature tiles. In combination, the glossy layers of white on the cabinets and vanity shine unapologetically while adding texture and warmth into the room. Even though today’s typical bathroom trend is matte tiles, the lustrous spa-like finish of these polished tiles feels much more expensive.

With such exquisite colours and luxury accents presented in this bathroom renovation, it’s clear the timeless bathroom design evokes soothing feelings. Cucumber slices may be added for a quick reduction of stress!
