Maintenance of bathroom fittings

Keeping your fittings clean and gleaming will really make them stand out, and if you’ve put any amount of time into your bathroom design, they will be one of the key features that people will notice. Most fittings can be maintained very easily; a quick wipe down with some detergent and warm soapy water will usually do the trick (though cleaning the drain is another matter altogether). If done regularly, your fittings will remain eye-catching for years to come and will require less heavy-duty maintenance.

Light shelves

Light shelves work on a fairly basic principle. A shelf is installed outside of a window, which reflects additional light back into a room. They are particularly effective for houses where eaves might otherwise reduce the amount of light entering a window at certain times of the day.
