4 Bathroom Renovation Ideas You Don’t Want To Miss

The bathroom is one of the most used rooms in your home. Whether you’re a quick morning showerer or late-night soaker, having a bathroom you can enjoy and relax in while getting ready or winding down is important in making your house a home. 

No matter how big or small your bathroom is, having a space that you love and appreciate that feels like part of your home is key. If you’re planning a renovation soon, you may be looking for some ideas on how to makeover your bathroom . 

Wet rooms are the new big thing! Having an entirely open plan space to enjoy can make smaller bathrooms appear larger and airier. There’s also no more wiping down shower doors and towelling the floor dry, since it’s made to get wet! 

Adding a little bit of nature to your bathroom is also a great way to give the room a whole new feel. Incorporating elements of natural wood and stone with texture into your bathroom can help you feel more in touch with nature and more relaxed. 

You can also add some greenery to the space. Plants will thrive in the moist, humid air that a steamy shower provides and can help remove some of that moisture to give fresher, cleaner air in your bathing space. 

Stand-alone tubs have always given a luxurious feel to a bathroom, but there are so many options besides the classic claw-foot tub. If you have the space, a freestanding tub can be a beautiful and elegant focal point for your bathroom and a place for you to fully immerse yourself in relaxation. 

But don’t ditch the claw-foot tub just yet. Vintage style is always on trend and giving your bathroom a Victorian-esque makeover can help bring a touch of old-timey glamour to your home and give you the soft, elegant and romantic bathroom of your dreams.

Does Your Driveway Need An Autumn Makeover?

Normally, the best time to completely relay a driveway is in the spring or summer, when the weather is likely to be dry, there are long daylight hours for the work to get done and you don’t have to worry about issues like the freeze-thaw effect of winter.

Nonetheless, there are times when it might be necessary to call a Telford driveway company in to fix a real problem that occurs at the end of summer or in autumn, because if this is not resolved it may deteriorate further in winter.

However, there are steps you can take to help protect the driveway and reduce the chances of damage being caused in autumn, not least by dealing with some of the things that the season inevitably brings – like falling leaves.

Not only are these a slip hazard when wet; they can be a big problem for block paving driveways in particular, as well as patios. Rotting leaf mould encourages moss and weeds to grow in between the slabs, diminishing the appearance as well as opening up cracks. That’s why it’s important to sweep them away.

There are many other wise steps to take; It can also be smart to pay attention to plants growing next to the driveway with roots that could undermine the surface or cause it to become uneven, removing these if necessary.

It is also a good time to ensure the driveway drains well, such as by digging drainage channels on either side and, once again, removing fallen leaves or any other blockages in them. This stops the driveway getting waterlogged and, when the temperature drops below zero, prevents freeze-thaw opening up cracks.

By giving your driveway lots of TLC you will help it last longer and stay in better condition. But if it does get damaged, it’s important to call in the experts quickly. Early intervention can help prevent a small problem becoming a very large one.
