Q & A – Faye Froy, brand development and marketing manager at Bathroom Brands
- What are the best showering solutions for future proofing the bathroom? It’s important to plan for the future, especially if you’ve moved into your ‘forever home’. It’s not just about style, remember to consider how a shower will remain safe and functional for family members of all ages. One option is to think about how you can introduce smart home technology into your shower space. Homes are finding themselves at an interesting period, on the cusp of a complete digital overhaul, so plan for the technological future with digital ranges that are sure to ease the stresses of morning routines.
- What about basins? What are the most flexible options? Consider a design that’s guaranteed not to go out of style by opting for a pedestal basin. Not only can you choose from a wide selection of styles and shapes, the pedestal also offers a tidy solution to hiding away plumbing that may detract from your desired overall look.
- How easy is it to create a stylish scheme while keeping an eye on future needs? Manufacturers are making it easier to invest in a bathroom that will stand the test of time. Instead of having separate home trends and bathroom trends, ideas for the whole home are now extending into the bathroom, as new materials and innovative technology mean that customers don’t have to choose anymore between functionality and stunning design. Whether you want a clean, minimal style that will remain ageless or you decide to choose a period bathroom that ignores contemporary fashions, there’s a multitude of solutions to ensure that future proofing your bathroom is as effortless as possible.
