Timber trend..

Published November 17, 2015

If you’ve been thinking about giving your bathroom a complete overhaul, but aren’t quite sure how to revamp the space, a great place to start is to look to the latest design trends for inspiration. One of our favourites is the Natural trend, where timber is the feature. There is nothing better than mixing textures and natural materials, think stone, marble and timber… heaven!

It could be as simple as adding some accessories such as a beautiful timber stool or raw timber shelving, or you could make the timber the key standout feature and take this trend as far as a timber feature wall, timber look tiles or even a timber bath.. remember the boys from The Block’s infamous $7,500 winning bath!

Contact our team of Interior Designers today to see how you can incorporate this trend into your bathroom.

As Summer fast approaches as the days heat up it’s time we shifted our thoughts to long summer nights, wine on the deck and outdoor BBQ dinners. An outdoor kitchen or BBQ area is not as expensive as you might think, all you need is the space and the desire for the ideal outdoor lifestyle. At M.J.Harris Carpentry not only do we build outdoor kitchens, pergolas and deckings but we can maintain them for you on a yearly basis too, ask us how today.
