What Houzz contributors are saying:
Retrofitting your glazingThere are several options if you’re looking to retrofit your existing windows to improve their insulation performance. Secondary glazing: Secondary glazing can be retrofitted to existing windows by adding an extra pane of glass or clear acrylic. It can be attached through magnetic strips or built onto the existing frame and, depending on the product, may be able to mimic the properties of a double-glazed window. Glazing films: Magnetic and transparent films, such as reflective coatings, can be fitted to the glass of an existing window to reduce heat gain and the amount of light in winter as well as in summer.
With such an enormous variety of styles and designs on the market, you’ll be spoilt for choice when choosing a tub, but if you are looking for something that will wow, opt for a shapely number that grabs attention. “With the many innovative bath designs available, it’s quite often simple to provide a wet area for showering as well as a bath, thanks to some clever spatial solutions,” says interior designer Susan Cleveland. Could this be the answer to your bath dilemma?
Simple mirrors can also perform practical functions, such as this bespoke design above that has a handy ledge for toiletries.
