Update a focal point

Updating one major component of your bathroom can lift its whole look. First, work out where your focal point lies – bath, shower or basin. Then invest in a replacement that will take pride of place yet still work with the overall room.

Be water wise

  • Installing a shower-head with an AAA rating will save around 10 litres of water a minute. They come in a variety of styles and are designed to conserve water without compromising comfort.
  • Mixer taps offer greater temperature control and thus water savings. They enable the desired temperature to be reached swiftly, cutting down on the amount of water wasted while waiting for it to heat up or cool down.
  • For the truly dedicated, a bucket can be used to catch unused running water, for later use on plants.
