Flow and function

Katherine Lightfoot of Kella Design Co. says kitchens and bathrooms need careful thought and planning. “There’s so much to designing these rooms in terms of flow and function,” says Katherine. “Investing in a designer might cost you a little more up-front, but can save you money in the long-run with making the most of the space you have and knowing the quality products that will have longevity.”

“I believe great design is discovering ones individual style and pairing it with equal parts functionality and beauty.” says Katherine

Getting smart

Katherine also recommends smart touches such “LED strip lighting added to tiled niches in the shower. It’s such a minor detail but it really elevates the look of a bathroom.”

The Wiser Smart Home range also offers a variety of smart accessories to enhance your bathroom and add comfort and convenience to your everyday life. A humidity sensor can for instance automatically turn your exhaust fan and heated towel rail on when moisture is detected and turn it off once humidity levels return to normal.
