Homeowners wanting to enhance their showering experience may wish to take note that some new Bathroom appliances are producing never-before-seen effects.

Carolyn Parker of Carolyn Parker Interior Design has observed that some "wonderful" modern shower heads and taps are able to create a stream that is similar to that produced by a waterfall.

The expert also claimed the aesthetics of washrooms appear to be changing, as "very interesting" bathroom tiles are coming to the fore such as those with precious stones and images.

She explained that faux stone which is quite similar to leather in appearance has proven particularly popular in Portugal.

"We often use pale stone on the walls then highlight alcoves and niches with precious stone such as lapis lazuli or opal," Ms Parker added.

Florida Today recently reported that making use of bathroom accessories such as mirrors and clothes hooks can help make a washroom appear more spacious.
