IDEAS TO STEAL New year state of mind
Exposed copper piping
inspired by his home’s commercial past, ivan’s apartment has a luxe, industrial look, with pipework and cabling left out on view. Very now, exposed pipes work particularly well when set against a concrete wall. you can also push the idea further by making the pipework run up and down as well as around a space. any skilled plumber can re-create this style (visit ratedpeople.com for tradesmen in your area), but do be aware that stripping out plumbing from behind existing plasterboards may be prohibitively expensive. expect to pay from £3,500 to plumb an entire room.
