Here’s Why The Rubin Mirror Range Stands Out…

RUBIN Bathroom Mirror - BLACK

Distinctive Design

The Rubin mirror range offers a one-of-a-kind design that exudes elegance and sophistication. Available in brushed brass and black finishes, it adds a touch of luxury to any setting.

The space between the mirror and its illuminated rectangular frame creates a trendy layered look. The frame’s mixture of curves and straight edges gives the Rubin mirror a unique rectangular shape that also features a pill shape, making it a great choice for different bathroom styles.

Advanced Features of the Rubin Bathroom Mirror

The Rubin Mirror Range is equipped with state-of-the-art technology that offers more than just a reflection. This range has the latest heat pad technology that covers over 75% of the mirror’s surface. This innovative feature significantly reduces condensation, thus ensuring improved visibility. Additionally, Rubin features an improved, larger touch switch that allows users to enjoy enhanced illumination. It also has colour-changing technology that enables users to alter the light from a bright, white light to a warm, ambient light.

Customisable Illumination

Rubin offers advanced features including customizable illumination. The illuminated rectangular frame incorporates colour-changing technology and three brightness levels, providing users with the ability to adjust their lighting experience to their liking. With touch-sensitive controls, it’s easy to adjust the brightness level, ensuring the perfect amount of light for any task. Say goodbye to inadequate lighting with Rubin.

Here is what HiB have to offer in the Bathroom Trend World of 2024

We’re excited to announce the release of our highly anticipated bathroom trends for 2024. In an ever-evolving world of design, HiB remains at the forefront by introducing four unique trends, each designed to elevate and bring fresh inspiration to the bathroom.

Here is what Hib have to say about the Bathrooms Trends of 2024

The first trend, ‘Exhale’, takes inspiration from nature-inspired interior design trends. Departing from last year’s ‘Petrichor,’ Exhale embraces minimalism, mid-century style, and neutral tones without overusing nature in the space. Characterised by stone finishes, rounded shapes and tactile textures, this trend draws inspiration from the laid-back ‘California Casual’ aesthetic, favouring refined simplicity over rustic elements.

Also new this year is the ‘Euphoria’ trend, which blends nostalgia with contemporary design. Arches and curves lead the space, offering a sense of fluidity and movement. Geometric and abstract patterns, along with fluted textures add a contemporary touch, while a muted yet colourful palette connects the design to the organic world, bringing a breath of fresh air to any bathroom.

For those who like edgier styles, the ‘Elements’ trend exhibits a stormy aesthetic, using darker neutrals and cool blues to create a moody yet inviting atmosphere. Drawing inspiration from Wabi Sabi, Minimalism and Brutalism, Elements seamlessly blends nature’s imperfections with refined engineering. The raw and textured feel is achieved through the use of iron and gunmetal brassware, highlighting the beauty in the flaws of organic materials.

Last but certainly not least, the ‘Enamour’ trend embraces vintage glamour and art deco, offering an air of quiet, timeless elegance. By blending old and new elements through upcycling, Enamour creates a classic contemporary aesthetic. This trend embodies the philosophy of ‘less is more’, promoting a clutter-free environment and contributing to what some are calling ‘quiet luxury.’

Jasmine Rowe, HiB product designer, said: “The 2024 bathroom trends from HiB showcase our commitment to pushing the boundaries of design while maintaining a strong connection with nature and elegance. These trends are not just about aesthetics, they are about creating immersive, personalised and practical bathroom experiences. We’re confident that we will see these trends used strongly in designs and be a key steer in bathroom styles throughout 2024. “

HiB’s wide range of bathroom mirrors, cabinets, furniture and accessories are perfectly suited to bring these trends to life, offering a design that complements each theme. To explore the full Trends Guide and to gain even more bathroom interior design inspiration, click here.

Sonas Bathrooms Bringing you its Top 5 Bathroom Trends for 2024

As the bathroom experts, SONAS are here to guide you through our top 5 bathroom trends for 2024, blending functionality, sustainability, and aesthetics, to redefine how we experience the most important room in the home-the bathroom!

Let’s see what Sonas Bathrooms have to say

1. Push on Pastels

Colour is a major bathroom trend for 2024, and pastels are making a comeback. While neutral bathrooms will still be popular, the new year will see the rise of soft pastel blues and pastel pinks, injecting character into spaces that need a fresh look.

Pastel pink shades demonstrated in this bathroom featuring the new ASPECT Scandinavian Cashmere Pink Wetroom Panels.

2. Matchy-Matchy

Along with subtle shades being used in the bathroom, matching colours will see a huge boom in bathrooms for 2024.

What we mean by ‘matchy-matchy’ colour is the use of colour through numerous points in your design. Think coloured toilets matched with coloured basins, and coloured units matched with coloured shower profiles. This careful colour coordination not only adds character to your bathroom but enhances the overall aesthetic, creating a harmonious flow and visually appealing bathroom space.

Featuring coordinated colour through our new SAMOA freestanding bath and FINLAND unit, tied together with the new ASPECT Scandinavian Morning Sky Blue Wetroom Panels

3. Quiet Luxury

Even with the surge of colour, relaxation isn’t compromised in a neutral bathroom with Scandi-vibes. The trend, ‘quiet luxury’, is based on showcasing simple colours with an emphasis on the design of the products within your space.

In 2024 bathrooms we will see a push on features such as backlit mirror lighting and heated demisters. We will also see a lot of texture in bathrooms for 2024, particularly in features like fluted glass. The unique texture of fluted glass not only adds a touch of sophistication but also plays with light, creating subtle visual interest.

It’s a trend that transcends mere aesthetics, offering an elevated and tranquil bathroom experience.

The new MIRAGE Matt Black Fluted Glass Wetroom Panels provide texture which creates a seamless quiet-luxury-inspired design

4. Sustainability

As sustainability gains prominence in the building sector, it becomes a crucial consideration for individuals undertaking renovations or self-builds. With building regulations becoming more stringent over time, it’s imperative to consider future-proofing your home with sustainable choices.

Beyond meeting regulatory requirements, sustainable choices contribute to the longevity and value of your home. Consider water-saving and energy-efficient products for your bathroom, such as including towel warmers designed to retain heat for longer periods. Sustainability encompasses the products you select, their water and energy efficiency, and their environmental impact.

These factors will significantly influence the design decisions for bathrooms in 2024. It’s crucial to educate yourself on this enduring bathroom trend.

5. Biophilic Design

Biophilic design, or bringing the outdoors ‘in’, involves incorporating materials, colours, and textures inspired by nature into your space.

In bathrooms, trends for 2024 include the calming presence of plants, the warmth of natural light, and the texture of earthy materials.

When done right, Biophilic design has proven benefits such as stress reduction, improved mental well-being, and enhanced air quality. All of these add to the overall aesthetic of your bathroom.

Collection

As always with trends, while they may dominate Instagram feeds in the new year, it’s essential to remember that what works for others might not be the best fit for your space. Prioritise the functionality of your bathroom and consider what makes sense for you. Remember, SONAS Bathroom products boast enduring style and quality. No matter your choice, we guarantee lasting performance for years to come. Consider this when selecting your items, ensuring you choose a product you genuinely love – regardless of the trend you’re following!

If you’re looking to find some more inspiration for your reno or self-build project in the new year, then make sure you check 101 Bathrooms Tullamore for more SONAS products.

Although metal is one of the most commonly used materials in architecture and construction, this year it is also one of the most in-demand for interior design and home décor trends. However, whereas a few years ago we saw luxury metals such as rose gold, silver or copper, the type of metal used these days has a more industrial, time-worn appearance with marked contrasts, filling rooms with personality.

We Present the Grespania Distrito Tile collection, a porcelain tile that perfectly recreates metal slabs that have been exposed to inclement weather, creating graphically rich surfaces. The result is elegantly urban and industrial spaces in a new architectural era where the only limit is the imagination.

The Distrito series comes in the colours aluminium, corten, zinc, iron and ivory, a colour palette that provides a defined industrial-inspired effect, closely aligned with current décor and interior design trends thanks to its notable architectural texture.

The mix of cold and warm tones, such as aluminium and ivory, makes this series a sure bet for the home. But if you want to go for more expressive, daring colours, darker metallics such as anthracite, zinc or corten are the way to go: as well as creating a striking appearance wherever they are used, they look like genuine works of art.

AN ANSWER FOR EVERY SPACE

Innovative and contemporary, the Distrito series is excellent for use in both public and private spaces. Thanks to the versatility of this series in terms of formats and thicknesses, Distrito is the ideal solution for any architectural project, helping to unify spaces under the same aesthetic criteria.

The District wall tile is available in 45×120 cm format, complemented by 60×60 porcelain floor tile, it is inspired by a metal aesthetic, which provides a sense of modernity and luminosity without losing the strong features of the original material such as its characteristic rust spots.

An innovative touch is provided by the Holborn decorative piece, a stripped, multicoloured metal plate which highlights the rusty tones; and the triple-fired decorative piece Garden, where again the plant aesthetic takes over the walls to create a bold room design.
The Chelsea relief adds geometric volume to the walls, breaking with the spontaneity of the graphics and creating a visual playfulness.
Distrito thus becomes a concept series that provides solutions and aesthetic continuity to any architectural or interior design project.

PRETTY PINK BATHROOM TREND 2023

Whether you choose a soft and serene pink tile or a splash of pink through fittings, you can still achieve this calming hue in your bathroom. So how can we achieve these looks? How can you get your bathroom trendy but calm and welcoming? We can do this by upgrading your sanitaryware to include black fixtures i.e. black taps, black Towel warmers or Radiators, and even Black Shower enclosures!! Changing these elements within your bathroom can elevate your look, including the soft pinks is key to balancing the black colour in your bathroom.

Pink soft tones have a calming element to them; They don’t overload the room. Contrasting the crisp white elements such as your basin and toilet creates a statement within your bathroom. They encourage wellness, which can be calming. When choosing a bathroom colour scheme, to create a mindfulness space consider beige, pink, or even blue. Psychologically it gives a sense of calm. By incorporating the marble effect you can create a unique bathroom design that emanates elegance. Contrasting a pink unit such as the Alto unit with a grey tile like our Innova, Harmony or grey blanket collections, you can really achieve a calming bathroom space.

This blush-beige shade is inspired by minimalistic and rustic elements. You can brighten up the shade by using other pink or peach elements or tone down by using earthy tones, like raw natural materials, soft browns, and even woodeffect tiles. With furniture to suit every size bathroom, there is no shortage of options to style your bathroom with rustic charm. Lighting can also play key factors in deciding if pink is a good shade in your bathroom, by using glazed tiles such as monoblock pink, you can create the illsuion of a larger looking space. The glaze finish on the tile will bounce light around the room.

CREATE YOUR BATHROOM MOOD BOARD

Combine our Meet Me Terrazzo tile collection with some of our stunning bathroom ware to create an interior in your favourite style.

In the base design of the MEET ME rectified ceramic tiles collection, referring to the impressive terrazzo, small stones of different sizes mix together in subdued colours with an unusual colour palette – from white and grey to single accents of blue and beige. The pattern fills the entire surface of the tiles creating a multi-dimensional and deep effect. The base terrazzo tile with a satin finish (29.8 × 59.8 cm) and the porcelain stoneware tile (59.8 × 59.8 cm) with the same pattern creates a modern, sensual interior effect. The rich pattern and colour accents of beige and blue on the wall and floor tiles create the perfect base for a variety of arrangements. The colours are subdued, so it is the accessories that determine the tone of the interior. Thanks to the range of colours, a bathroom with the MEET ME collection can change depending on the completing elements. Powder pink warms up the interior, blues and greys give it a maritime or New York flair, and sandy elements create a natural effect.

SCATTERED PEBBLES

An unexpected encounter can be the start of a wonderful adventure. The pattern of the tiles in the Meet Me collection is reminiscent of a striking terrazzo. Scattered small pebbles embedded in the ceramic are the starting point for interesting bathroom designs. They are perfect as a base for loft-style interiors if we introduce industrial accents in the form of black and a drop of blue into the arrangement. The muted colour scheme behind the tiles means that it is the accessories that can determine the character of the interior. Check out our inspirational material boards and see how to use the potential of Meet Me in your bathroom.

IN WARM EARTHY COLOURS

Starting with Meet Me tiles with a terrazzo motif as a natural pebble surface, Then opt for Earthy shades to complement a striking look of cloudy sky tonal Furniture. Complete the natural look of the bathroom by adding some Accessories made from natural materials, stone or linen. The bathtub and sanitary ceramics should have a simple, subtle form, and be matched with fittings of steel.

MINIMALISM REIGNS IN THIS BATHROOM INSPIRATION

Somewhat ascetic, but the striking interior is based on a contrasting combination of black and broken white, with the addition of beige grey and accents in light blue and navy, If minimalism is you, decorate your bathroom in your favourite style using Meet Me tiles with graphics inspired by popular terrazzo, Natural stone is a timeless addition. In a minimalist interior, opt for simple forms in the furnishings: concealed fittings, an open shower. With this the colours, patterns and textures can remain in the foreground, This gives the whole design an interesting, graphic appearance.

The bath vs shower debate has been a hotly-argued topic in households across the country. While some people love the idea of starting or ending the day with a long soak, others can’t fathom the concept of sloshing around in a tub full of water.

Both showers and baths have some pretty brilliant health and well-being benefits, but which is better for you in the long term?

As they say, Showers are better as they don’t strip your skin of natural oils, but baths are great for people with aching muscles, skin issues, or for stress relief and sleep aid, as you can soak in a bath with different Bath salts and bath oils or Milk. Always moisturise well afterwards as a long soak can dehydrate your skin.

So in saying all that I think it is a matter of personal choice and lifestyle once you take care of your skin in the long run. I like a shower but I also like a nice soak in a bath.  In today’s world, life is too busy and a bath is a luxury more than a necessity, so why not opt for both if you have room in your home as most houses these days have more than one bathroom.

As we are not medical experts we will leave the debate to those who are and I will tell you what is on the market today in the world of bathing.

EKO N1 BATH IMAGE

We all love the idea of a big luxurious freestanding bath in our bathroom but that is not always practical and a lot of people simply don’t have the space, but having a bath and a shower in your home is sometimes a necessity for some families as they have young children to bathe.

THE BEST OF BOTH WORLDS

Here are some bathroom products to consider for a Family Home.

The Showerbath is a great option for busy families with young children. The Showerbath is a bath usually p-shaped or L-shaped, so basically it’s available in a squared or rounded option, your choice depends on your preference of the bathroom style you have chosen. This bath has a wider space at the shower end and comes with a hinged glass bath screen, which means it can be opened out of the way while you are bathing your child.

 Another option to consider is a basic Inset Bath (also known as a standard bath) you can then add a bath panel or it can be also tiled into the bathroom, you can also buy a separate bath screen, but this bath is the same width the whole length, it doesn’t have a wider end for showering like the shower bath.

Once you have chosen which bath option you want you can then have a shower fitted over the bath, this can be a thermostatic shower or an Electric shower this all depends on the plumbing of your home as you may need a pump.  There is an option of a bath-shower mixer, Which is the tap fitted on the bath, it is only for rinsing yourself after a bath and is not as good as a shower, but there is a bath-shower mixer on the market to suit this need, like a thermostatic bath-shower mixer.  

The last option for a family home is to have a shower cubicle in the en-suite and a nice luxury bath in the main bathroom. I know some people might think they don’t have the space, well we have free-standing baths as small as 1550mm with tap ledges so this is shorter than the average bath size in a home of 1700mm.

Regardless of the space you have there are plenty of styles that are sure to make your bathroom a truly wonderful place to unwind.

SHOWER BATH

A LIFE OF LUXURY

If you have plenty of space in your home for a luxury bathroom well you are in for a treat, in today’s bathing world the choice is endless.

Both Luxurious Modern Freestanding baths and captive Traditional Freestanding baths a very popular in today’s bathroom trends but people also want the option to have a luxury walk-in shower and in this create a complete wetroom,  this can be achieved whether you want a Modern or Traditional style bathroom and radiate class and sophistication into your home.

If taking a long and steamy shower is your preference then adding a walk-in shower or wetroom is a great starting point. Walk-in showers are so on-trend, that more and more people are choosing them as they are very accessible and come in a variety of styles and colours.  Walk-in showers add a sense of retreat to your bathroom, you could even go as far as having a built-in spa seat.

Turning your bathroom into a complete wetroom is another option in which you would need plenty of space if you wish to have bathroom furniture fitted in the room, if you opt for all sanitary ware then you have no worries about things getting wet, just ensure your storage cabinets are stainless stee

AYO Modular AYO 10mm Wetroom Panel with Angled Stabilising Bars Configuration 6 in Matte Black

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A WET ROOM AND A WALK-IN SHOWER?

The difference between a wet room and a walk-in shower is that as in the name wet room, the space is completely open plan, although a wetroom shower screen can be used depending on the wall usage in your room, for instants you could have an alcove (this can be built by put up a partition) in the room for the shower area. In a wet room, the water flows away through a drain in the floor so you have to have the floor tiled with a slope for the water to flow correctly, whereas a walk-in shower typically features one or two glass screens and a low-level shower tray or a mosaic floor. Both options provide easy access.

Whichever you choose a walk-in shower or wet room provides stylish and practical showering for all ages, from young to elderly, as well as for those with restricted mobility.

Make sure to use a water seal when fitting a wet area in your bathroom by using a tanking system.

Now for the Luxury, if you have a lovely big open space for your bathroom, you can opt for both a bath and a shower cubicle in the same room and you could have your brassware (shower and taps) all connected, as we have multiple options for you to create your sanctuary.  In today’s market, you can opt for whichever style you want you don’t have to stick to modern to have these features.

How about a showering system with triple-function shower sets that combine a fixed shower head, shower handset and bath filler for a luxurious and varied showering experience, all controlled from one valve.  Most of the showers now come with matching taps in a range of chrome, Black, Gold and Brush Brass.

I love the Classic showers with rain heads, so on trend, and there are even showers that you can connect to your phone and tell it to turn on, sure what more do you want.

If you opt for luxury with a free-standing bath and Shower enclosure in the same room, you can choose from a wall-mounted or freestanding bath filler or a bath shower mixer, we even have wall mount basin mixers, all to mix and match to your shower and for you to create your Style, your Bathroom. 

And last of all don’t forget your Bathroom accessories which are also available to match the rest of the Brassware in your bathroom.

If you need any assistance I recommend you visit our 101 Bathrooms Showroom, showcasing all your bathroom ware and tiles, it’s A World of Inspiration.

Enjoy whatever Bathroom Style you choose…
