Small bathrooms don’t need to feel squashed in and claustrophobic. And you don’t need to knock through walls or create extensions to make your bathroom feel bigger. Here are some top design tips to make a small bathroom feel more spacious and look amazing.

Rounded edges

Rounding the edges on counters and cabinets is a great idea for smaller bathrooms. Not only does it eliminate the risk of painful elbow-knocks, rounded edges also look modern and elegant, creating a more cohesive appearance, which is particularly important in smaller spaces

Bigger is better (for tiles)

Counter-intuitive though it might seem, larger tiles work better in smaller bathrooms. By using wider and larger tiles, you can trick the eye into not noticing the actual size of the space as clearly – small or intricately patterned tiles, in contrast, draw attention to the close dimensions of the space.

Forget about towel rails

Getting rid of towel rails is a simple way to create a bit of extra space in a small bathroom. Instead of intalling a big fixed rail, why not simply add hooks to the back of the bathroom door, or under the sink? You can style the hooks up to make them into a bit of a feature. High street homewares shops such as John Lewis, Habitat and Anthropologie have a fantastic range of stylish and quirky hooks.

Create storage niches in interior walls

Storage niches in interior walls not only look great, they’re a brilliant solution for bathrooms. Use them to store small items such as toiletries, or create a cosy mood by adding candles. You can also add LED lighting to make the space brighter in a subtle and space-saving way.

Install a floating sink

Floating sinks are a great way to add storage space in your bathroom. Unlike sinks with build in cabinets beneath them, floating sinks mean you’re less limited in terms of storage.

Lose the shower curtain

Do you really need a shower door or curtain? Creating more of a ‘wet room’ style bathroom means you don’t have to divide up the space, which will instantly create a more open feel. If you really do need to section off your shower area, go for a clear curtain or glass divider.

Go big on mirrors

A classic trick for making rooms look larger and brighter is to put in a big mirror. This tip holds true for bathrooms as well. Maximise on any natural light and make the room feel more spacious with a big mirror (plus it makes doing your hair and makeup easier too).

Go green

Adding plants to window sills, or placing hanging plants towards the back of a bathroom can help to draw the eye through the room. Tropical plants work best as they love humid environments.

We’ll be posting more design and home style tips in the coming weeks, so come back for more ideas for your home.

The past week was Shared Ownership week. To celebrate, Currell participated in the London Home Show last Saturday where the team raised awareness about the scheme and told people all about the shared ownership properties Currell offers. They let everyone know about how Shared Ownership works and how it can be a great option for first time buyers.

If you can’t afford your first property on the open market, the shared ownership scheme might be right for you. As long as your annual income is less than £90,000 (in London), you can purchase from 25% up to 75% of your home depending on your affordability. You then pay the subsidised rent to the housing association on the remaining share of the property that you do not own. Later you can purchase more shares, or if you choose to move on you can sell your share to another buyer looking to get onto the property ladder with the shared ownership scheme.

There are two Shared Ownership launches coming up. Don’t miss out!

Leyside will be launching on 29th September, offering a selection of two, three and four bedroom houses in Barking & Dagenham. Find out more and register your interest HERE 

Kingsbridge Terraces will be launching on 6th October, offering a selection of two and three bedroom maisonettes and three bedroom houses in Barking & Dagenham. Find out more and register your interest HERE

Regent’s Canal has a long history, dating all the way back to 1820, it was originally constructed as a transport network, but the emerging railways across England meant that boat travel became less popular and the canal was almost turned into a rail road.

Today, the canal, which stretches all the way from Paddington to Limehouse Basin (passing Primrose Hill, London Zoo, King’s Cross and Victoria Park along the way), is a lively hub of bars and restaurants, including floating pontoon bars and canal boat coffee shops. Due to bombing during the Blitz, some areas of Regent’s Canal are very deep and you can often spot anglers trying their luck fishing along the banks. While the canal might not have been a successful transport hub in its early days, today it’s a popular walking and cycling route – you can bike from Victoria Park all the way to Camden in half an hour – and walking along the canal you’ll spot colourful house boats moored all the way from East London to King’s Cross.

Homes along the canal benefit from amazing connectivity and great waterside views. Here are a few of the properties currently available on Regent’s Canal… please get in touch for more information on any of these properties.

We love amazing homewares. There’s nothing quite like having a home to call your own and being able to find fun, unusual and beautiful things to fill it with. In London, we’re so lucky to have so many talented independent makers who produce unique items: things you genuinely can’t find anywhere else. Here are a few of our favourites…

Hokolo

Hokolo, led by designer Jen Taylor, is all about bright and bold patterns and colours. Hokolo’s fun designs include stackable ceramic mugs, throw cushions and crockery as well as furniture and fabrics. And they sell gift cards, just saying.

20 Seventh Letter

April Christopher first got into print design while studying at Nottingham Trent University. Now based in London, her brand 20Seventh Letter is all about style and luxury. All materials are sourced in the UK and April’s unique prints are all made in London. Her homeware products range from cushions to wall paper, but she also makes little luxuries too including cute coin purses and make-up bags.

Olive Jennings

We love the simple functional Scandi-inspired designs of Olive Jennings. As well as durable furniture, such as this side table made from plywood and metal, she also works with concrete to make industrial styled beautiful small homewares including coasters and hanging planters.

London Cloth Company

The London Cloth Company is London’s first micro-mill. They make high quality materials created on restored shuttle looms from the 1870s. Most of their work is bespoke but they offer a small range of blankets and wool by the meter on their website. And if you’re on a bit of a budget (or just looking for a little house warming gift for somebody) they also sell mugs featuring prints of some of their classic wool blends.

The Botanical Boys


The Botanical Boys are Ben and Darren, who got into terrariums big time after moving into a garden flat in East London in 2009. They transformed the dilapidated garden of the flat into a thing of beauty – gaining attention from national newspapers along the way. Now, they create gardens on a mini-scale: terrariums, which mean anyone can enjoy plants in their house whether they have outside space or not. As well as selling complete terrariums on their website, they also run workshops so you can learn how to do it yourself.

The London Refinery

Lucy Heale uses all natural essential oils and soy wax to make luxurious candles inspired by moods. Scent blends including ‘Inspire’ and ‘Relax’ are available in different sizes. Based out of Ealing, everything at the London Refinery is hand made and they run candle making workshops around East London – you can even hire them for private events.

Looking for a Bank Holiday project? Why not jazz up your conservatory? Making the most of your conservatory can really make a difference, adding a whole extra functional room to your home. Here are a few ideas for ways you can make the most of yours…

Make it homey

Make your conservatory feel more like a part of your home by adding some wallpaper and soft furnishings. Fairy lights are a great way to create a cosy feel in the evenings and they look great through the windows of your conservatory from the garden.

Go green

Conservatories are bright and light – the perfect environment for plants! Succulents and palms are very in at the moment and they’re also the perfect plants if you’re not very green fingered. If you’re a bit more of a confident gardener olive trees are very hardy and can withstand hot and cold temperatures. Citrus trees like lemon or grapefruit create a great Mediterranean look but will require a little heating in the winter months.

Transform your conservatory into a home study


Not getting a lot of use out of your conservatory? Why not convert it into a home study? Granted, this might be a bit of a bigger project, but hey, what are Bank Holidays for? Making use of your conservatory in this way could also be a great way to declutter the rest of your house – a great way to get books and papers out of the way and create more space elsewhere. Also, by having a dedicated space for work, you’ll find it easier to switch off at the end of the working day.

Refresh your dining area

Make your conservatory into a dedicated dining room by brightening up your dining table. Add a colourful table cloth and maybe some bright and summery glasses and crockery to create a fun and welcoming space. You could even invite friends and family over for that final summer barbecue to make the most of your newly reinvigorated room.

Think floral

Sometimes conservatories get forgotten and neglected. Why not add fresh flowers to your conservatory, which will make it feel like a regularly used space and encourage you to spend more time there.

Add a statement item

Because your conservatory is slightly removed from the rest of your home, you can use that space to experiment with styles that you might hesitate to include in your living room. Try adding a statement piece of furniture to your conservatory – you’ll add instant style and you can build up on this in your own time.
