Don’t Underestimate the Importance of These 7 Design Elements.

BY

The design and construction of a home is a journey. From vision to inception and then reality. A lot of thought and time goes into the design and specification of its many core elements, but the journey doesn’t stop there. An integral part of the process of designing a beautiful home is the specification of fixtures and fittings; the finishing touches. No design journey is complete without these details. At first glance, you may not notice these subtle design elements like tapware, bathroom fixtures, and door hardware, but they are like the icing on the cake and can transform and complete an interior and aesthetic. 

1. Tapware

These design elements can often be overlooked, but when you consider how often they are used, this should be a key consideration. Do you want to elevate the home into luxury territory? Specifying elegant brass tapware might be the perfect solution. Or perhaps you are looking to create a more modern aesthetic and matt black mixer tapware would be more suitable?
