Plumbing course trainees may encounter more wood this year

Tradesmen with plumbing course qualifications may encounter more bathroom designs involving wood in 2011, according to one expert.

Cheryl Gurner, creative director of Bathrooms International, claimed many consumers may opt for the Bostonian beach house effect, which involves using coloured timber panels on the walls.

She explained that this kind of style looks good with both sleek and simple taps, as well as contemporary cross head versions.

Engineers who have completed plumbing courses could also see more chrome brassware being used, as well as a greater quantity of wood, Ms Gurner suggested.

She added: "The days of wood are returning with a modern twist. At last a trend that allows the more traditional leanings to come into play. I love panelling and love wooden vanities."

According to St James News writer Linda Merrill, planning to remodel a bathroom can be exciting and one of the key decisions to make is what type of vanity and countertop will be used in the room.
