When planning a bathroom space there are many features and trends to choose from. The choice of colours, styles and products are abundant.

A space where you can immerse feeling refreshed, revived and relaxed.
The right ventilation system is a very important bathroom feature and there are several functions that your ventilation unit should provide. A build-up of moisture in your bathroom can become a health hazard because it can create an unhealthy breeding environment for toxic mould.

Your décor will also have a longer lifespan as removing moisture will keep paint fresh.
