Designer Bathroom Extractor Fans

As regular readers will know, my missus is all about the designer finish, no matter what room of the house. I’m sure you’ve encountered the situation before, where you’ve just finished redecorating a room and it just seems to be lacking that little something special. That extra little touch of designer bling as she likes to call it, can help finish any room of the house. Something to catch the eye and give a sense of the luxury to the room, and of course helping you in keeping up with the Joneses.

Now admittedly, extractor fans are not something you would commonly associate with the designer touch but you’d be surprised.

Increasingly you can find stylish designer extractor fans that will add a sparkle to any bathroom. Not only that, you will also find that the fan vents and covers themselves are available in a range of styles, such as brushed aluminium/steel and the ever popular chrome finish. All of which can look a lot better than the plain white plastic that a lot of extractor fan vents come in.

So with a little thought and planning, you too can add that stylish designer touch to your bathroom. With that in mind take a look at our top 3 designer fans below for ideas for your perfect bathroom.
