Don’t Forget the Cloakroom

A lot of ‘modern’ homes have downstairs cloakrooms as well as bathrooms. While we often think to give the bathroom an overhaul we don’t usually make changes in the cloakroom. When you consider what a useful space it is, it is surprising that we don’t spend as much effort making this a welcoming room in our homes. Considering the cloakroom is the most likely place for your visitors to wash up before your dinner party you would think we would pay more attention to it.

The Smallest Room

Most cloakrooms are still the as-built version of the property. Builders would usually install a pretty standard toilet and cloakroom sink unless your home is one that was fitted to luxury standards. There is no reason why you can’t install those luxury fittings now. Sinks and basins, in particular, have become very modern and classy. The latest, slimline, space-saving sinks are very stylish.

The En-suite

Another feature that is often in today’s new builds but not often in older properties is the en-suite. If you have a big bedroom and plumbing near-by you can lose a corner of your bedroom for an en-suite bathroom. If you only have room for a loo and a small basin you can still make an impact with the modern basin designs available. They don’t need much space and can even be slotted into a corner.

The Bathroom

If the sparkly new basin in the cloakroom is putting your bathroom to shame install a new basin there too. It won’t cost the earth to change the basin but your bathroom will look like new. If you replace the taps the overall effect will be stunning.  For a few hundred pounds you can really upgrade your bathroom and cloakroom and make your home look like a million dollars.
