House2Home: The Complete Guide to Renovating or Redecorating

The Bathroom. It remains one of the most renovated rooms in the house, and with intricate works like plumbing, tiling and bath or shower installations - home owners want to get it right. But, what should you spend your money on? And what kind of bathroom designs and features are gracing Irish homes? 

As part of our House2Home series where we’ll be sharing advice and top tips on renovating and redecorating, architect, interior designer, and presenter of RTE’s Home Rescue’s Roisin Murphy tells us through what’s hot right now in Irish bathooms.

Bathroom Shower

'Bathrooms are all about the shower at the moment. I think in the last decade we’ve seen a lot of standalone baths, which are still huge.'

'The walk in shower is big - whether the shower enclosure is in an industrial style black steel frame, or a clear floating piece of glass - it’s a big trend at the moment.'


Concrete Bathroom

'Aswell as that we’re seeing polished concrete or fake concrete walls, that are massive at the moment. And, oddly enough – we’ve said goodbye to chrome and stainless steel – black taps or brass taps, or  gold taps – all of the things we haven’t seen for decades are suddenly right back in the bathroom.'
