BACK TO BASICS FOR BATHROOM BLISS
Ari Zorlu, managing director of bathroom design firm Paco Jaanson, says planning is the order of the day for a bathroom revival.
“Pre-ordering all of your finishes now, including baths, tapware, shower heads and cabinetry, is a must to have your bathroom ready for Christmas,” Ari says.
“A lot of tapware displayed in showrooms is a one-off, so it needs to be ordered and given four to eight weeks to arrive, especially if products are being shipped from Europe.”
Ari says timing may be an issue for custom colours or styles. He advises to act now and your Christmas-time visitors will be admiring your new bathroom.
“If you have ordered the product, don’t need to do much demolition and have access to good quality trades, it is definitely doable,” he says.
For a small-scale touch-up, Ari says there are several ways to renew the room.
“Start with changing things like cabinetry doors, handles, tapware or even the glass shower screen,” he says.
