‘His and Hers’ Sinks
Many of us aren’t morning people at the best of times, and rushed mornings can be even worse if you’re squeezing between each other, cleaning your teeth and doing your hair under a time-limit. Separate sinks give you your own space to enjoy, whether you’re shaving or applying your make-up, you won’t be getting in the way of each other.
Deciding on a ‘his and hers’ vanity unit is also a hugely beneficial move. The individual cabinets mean personal storage space is available for each person. Put an end to rifling through make-up or shaving foam to find your products and organise it exactly how you like. Two counter top basins are another solution, as this adds extra countertop space for accessories.
Reflect on It
We all want to use our mirror space at key times so follow the his and her theme with separate mirrors based over each sink, or why not scatter multiple mirrors throughout your bathroom? Take the ambiance to another level with our backlit mirrors or go for irregular shaped mirrors for a quirky twist to your bathroom. Reflections will make your bathroom seem bigger, so there’s no limit to the number of mirrors you choose!
If towels and clothes are causing issues, try using a ladder, bamboo, a bright colour or vintage looking (whatever your style), to hang towels to dry – when it’s not being used it looks like an original piece of decor! Some funky or vintage-looking robe hooks are a must for hanging both your dressing gowns. Too many products? Try mirrored wall cabinets or inbuilt wall storage. If you’re going for a quirky look, browse Pinterest for some bathroom storage ideas, such as attaching square wicker baskets or coloured boxes to the wall as shelf storage.
The bathroom is a great place to unwind, so don’t forsake the romance for the practicality. Incorporate features so that you can also enjoy time with that special someone as well. Double ended baths are perfect for a couple to appreciate together. As the taps are located in the middle, both sides can have a comfortable headrest so you relax together. Another option is to integrate two shower heads into a walk-through shower, for a very contemporary feel.
Do you consider lighting when you’re planning to re design your bathroom?
Lighting is a key part of any room in your home and certainly features highly in our showroom.

We are constantly coming up with lighting solutions for customers who have no idea how much choice they have, so we’ve brought a few of our projects together to inspire you.
Black has been hugely popular so far this year, and it won’t be stopping anytime soon. Its simplicity yet contemporary tone is perfect for the modern bathroom, particularly when paired with some innovative lighting. Black brassware is also a very stylish and original accessory to consider; its smooth matt surface is stunning in contrast to a textured white surface.

With nature themes prevalent in 2017, wood is the perfect material to feature in your bathroom, and with a rich variety of timber, you will be spoilt for choice!
Let us help you innovatively and creatively combine wood with stone, metal and ceramics for a completely unique bathroom interior. Research has gone into combining wood with these materials to ensure that they merge perfectly and can even be seamlessly introduced directly in the way of the water, such as floor coverage and shower zings!
Choosing the floor and wall tiles for your bathroom can be really tough – the choices seem almost endless and the variety is overwhelming. Many choose to go for a pale, sophisticated yet simple tiling design which is guaranteed to look flawless and stylish. However, considering bolder, brighter, patterned tiling will guarantee you a wow factor that you and all your guests will appreciate. This doesn’t mean you need to cover your bathroom with the craziest tiles possible; a feature wall will draw the eye, emphasise the contrasting tiles and look incredible, without coming across as overwhelming or tasteless.
Combining textures in the bathroom is certain to give a contemporary and unique feel. No longer is the bathroom limited to porcelain ceramics! Stone, wood, cork and glass are just a few options, each with various textures such as glossy, matt, polished and satin. The gorgeous shower room below uses the contrast between the dark textured wood and the smooth cream tiles to have a real impact. Textured feature walls such as this add interest and originality to your bathroom.
Brassware is a huge trend of 2017 that will give your bathroom a truly contemporary feel whilst creating an interior with character and originality. All-white bathrooms have a modern look, but can also come across as quite cold and clinical; coloured brassware is here to save the day, adding sophistication, style and impact.
With a vast variety of coloured brassware products being available, such as shower heads, taps and shower accessories, these features could bring your bathroom together with personality and uniqueness.
We think a lot about the comfort, convenience and aesthetics of your bathroom , so we are always on the lookout for new bathroom innovations, trends and technology. 2017 has introduced multiple new trends that we can’t wait to implement in some gorgeous, contemporary yet long-lasting bathrooms. We have chosen a few trends which we predict will be taking over the bathroom industry with their practicality, style and timelessness.
1/ Rimless Toilets
As beautiful as your bathroom may be, it will always need cleaning. However, there is a new style of toilet which minimises bacteria and germs, rimless toilets. Usually the rim is where the water flushes from; the underside gains residue and you are unable to see what may be underneath. Rimless toilets eliminate this inconvenience, making your toilet more hygienic and convenient, whilst having an aesthetic style unrivalled by many other toilets. Our rimless toilets come in multiple shapes, with options such as gloss, china, soft-close lid and with multiple flush choices.
There are many factors to consider when choosing the elements of a new bathroom, and flooring tiles can be one area that is difficult to decide upon. We’ve got a few tips to help you out:
1 / The colour
The amount of natural light that reaches your bathroom will indicate the best shade of floor tile for your interior. Do you need a lighter colour, to reflect the light, making the room seem bigger? Or is the room a decent size, meaning that dark tiles would bring everything together and contrast stylishly with the lighter parts of the interior. However, don’t be fooled that darker tiles will disguise the dirt; although they are a brilliant choice for a contemporary interior, they hide dirt no more that lighter coloured tiles .
