They also benefit from electric heaters to keep the rooms nice and warm in the winter months! The part-tiled bathroom is fitted with a white three-piece suite including shower over bath, with a mirror over the sink and a large window creating a light and relaxing feel.

Decor tips

  • Make bare floorboards cosy with lots of rugs
  • Old buildings can get a little chilly, so invest in some draught excluders
  • Instead of turning the heating on when it gets cooler, throw on loads of blankets!
  • To keep a clutter free home and make more space, opt for multi-purpose and fold away furniture
  • Most people would kill for stunning exposed brick features, make the most of these with cool vintage decor to match
  • Make the exposed brick wall a feature of the room and don’t over decorate itlounge5
