Feature: Bring Brother Home
Love it or hate it, you can’t ignore it. Reality TV programme Big Brother is back on our screens with another gaggle of contestants grappling for their share of the limelight. As usual, with the new contestants comes a new-look house where tears, tantrums and tom-foolery will abound once again.
While you might have no desire to recreate the tension, back-biting and fights that take place in the house every year, you might be more inclined to recreate some of Big Brother’soutlandish interior style.
Understandably, you probably won’t want your entire home to resemble the Big Brother house, but stealing a few of its choice designs, furniture and colour schemes could be the perfect antidote to a drab interior.
If you would like to recreate the bling bathroom or cutting-edge kitchen but aren’t sure where to start, help is at hand. Furniture retailer MFI has a selection of kitchens, bathrooms and dining rooms that wouldn’t look amiss in the Big Brother house.
To help you recreate that infamous look, check out these three ideas for your kitchen, dining room and bathroom.
This year the Big Brother kitchen has already seen a lot of drama. Tension over self-appointed house chef Rex’s behaviour in the kitchen has rattled many of the housemates and who can forget the infamous chip incident? Poor Rebecca didn’t know what a storm she would whip up when she innocently decided to help Rex in the kitchen.
You might not be a fan of the fights, but if you’re a fan of the high-gloss design why not recreate the look at home with MFI’s Phoenix fitted kitchen range? Creating a bold statement with contemporary looks and a host of space-saving features, the style is completed with a dark ebony laminate worktop. Prices start from £2,928. Kitchen prices quoted are based on a seven-cabinet kitchen installation, which includes a 3,000x600mm worktop.
Distinctive dining room
The place of numerous group meetings, Big Brother’sultra modern dining room has a futuristic feel to it and is offset by the shattered eye logo on the wall behind.
Bring Big Brother’sluxury looks to your dining room with a distinctive Sonoma oak dining table and chairs. The table seats six people comfortably, making it perfect for large groups. Prices start from £1,269 for the table and from £319 per chair.
Get ready for people sharing baths and washing in their underwear. This year’s Big Brother bathroom features an over-the-top bling look, with marble tiles and gilded features. If the Footballers Wives look is a bit OTT for your taste, check out MFI’s Victoria bathroom suite, it’s got the glamour without the tacky feel and includes a classic basin and pedestal and an indulgent freestanding roll-top bath.
Prices start from £275 for the basin and pedestal and from £400 for the bath.
