‘With bathrooms becoming more and more style-focussed, it’s inevitable that people are going to be increasingly enjoying the time they spend in there. As a result, they’ll be happier during the time they spend in there, whether unwinding in the bath or freshening up in the shower.

'Singing is an obvious way of expressing happiness and what better time to do that than at the start or end of your day – which are typically the most common times to freshen up,' says Mark Kelly, marketing manager at Furniture123.co.uk.
