This month Cate was interviewed by Period Living magazine about how to get a glamorous and luxurious bathroom. What was her advice? It’s all about functionality and the little details. Read Cate’s quote below or see the full article here
Everyone needs a little extravagance in their life and where better to satisfy your taste for it than in your own private bathroom?
Luxury means different things to different people and one individual’s indulgence is another’s expected level of comfort so your first step to designing a dream bathroom is to define your terms.
For interior designer Cate Burren of Angel + Blume, look and function are inseparable when it comes to bathroom design – if the room works efficiently, it will probably feel luxurious. ‘Underfloor heating and a well designed layout are absolutely essential,’ she says. ‘Even apparently small elements, like putting the heated towel rail in the correct place, within easy reach of the bath or shower, are important to get right.’ She also believes that, provided a sense of balance is maintained, traditional and contemporary style can marry quite happily, and often selects modern lighting for a period bathroom.
