What’s The Most Important Room In Your House?

What’s The Most Important Room In Your House?


The comedian Jackie Mason was once opining, in his inimitable fashion, about the self-congratulatory, back-slapping world of the Oscars and the acting profession’s sense of its own importance. "Movies aren’t important," he argued. "A toilet is more important than a movie. When was the last time you were driving with your wife on the highway and you shouted ‘pull over, pull over, I gotta see a movie’."

Like all great comedy, that joke has a kernel of truth at its heart. We all divide our time between pursuing the necessities or life, dealing with the logistics of day to day existence, and searching for the much more ephemeral but essential truth about human existence. These two drivers, of course, cannot realistically be compared. 

So, to return to the apparently simple question we started with; are eating, sleeping, bathing (essential requirements for human beings everywhere) more important than time spent with friends and family. Or, put another way, are the kitchen, the bathroom or the bedroom more important than the living room, the den or, indeed, the bedroom again.

It’s a conundrum any of us who have renovated a house have faced and considered, perhaps without even realizing it.

But increasingly, it seems, we are trying to find ways of reconciling these two needs, of bringing them together, fusing them. And helping to do this is one of our most unassuming materials; PVC.  Yes, the humble plastic finds itself as the clenched fist of a revolution in architecture, in design, in how we view our homes.

The kitchen; surely the most resolute bastion of pure practicality with its ‘below stairs’ roots? And yet….. 
PVC is allowing designers to introduce shapes, colors, clean lines, freshness and light. The kitchen is being transformed from a location for cooking to a space for breathing, living, meditating, being inspired.

Plastic wall cladding is taking over from ceramic tiles, its clean lines reflecting coolness and clarity of thought – an extension of the minimalism that so many designers and architects have fallen in love with.

Inspiration and enlightenment for life can come in many forms and from many sources. But polyvinyl chloride must surely be the most unlikely guru ever to bring wisdom to the believers.
