IS GREEN A GOOD COLOUR FOR A BATHROOM?

Certainly green is a great bathroom colour, Bathrooms are a space where we seek warmth and relaxation, so it is important to choose a colour combination that exudes tranquillity.

Green is an ideal colour for the bathroom because it can be calming or invigorating, depending on the shade. When it comes to shades, emerald or forest green tiles or furniture will give your bathroom a dramatic feel, while pale pistachio, mint or light sage tiles or furniture will make your bathroom feel lighter and brighter.

The right shade of green paired with accessories such as towels in complementary hues can create the atmosphere you want, and they can make a small space feel airy or make a large space cosier.

Look for a green that resonates with you and your space. Do you want a light and airy feel or dark and dramatic?

You can use green to create either of these looks as it is so versatile. Team your green with neutrals like white, stone and taupe, or use a punchy pink or turmeric, White with Green is a nice blend of earthy and fresh and it always works whatever shade of green you combine it with.

Minimalist design is an ongoing popular trend in bathroom interiors for some years now.  As the word minimalist indicates, declutter, a minimalist bathroom would be a place where the usage of furniture or any other objects would be reduced as much as possible.  The best way to achieve this is to use as little clutter as possible in your bathroom décor, this doesn’t mean leaving your bathroom without style!

It’s all about choosing things that have a function and using them to beautify your minimalist space, emphasising simplicity and creating a beautiful and stylish bathroom.

INCORPORATE FUNCTIONALITY IN YOUR BATHROOM DESIGN

Create your minimalist bathroom with great style by using clean lines, and creative storage, like wall-hung bathroom vanity units.  Under-basin storage is a great way of minimalising clutter, a simple design can make your bathroom feel calming and luxurious while being simple and functional.

If you are stuck for space, there is a short projection version of modular vanity units and slim fitted furniture available.

Also, when considering the Toilet you can get short projection toilets, opt for the fully back to wall as it helps create, should I say it again the MINIMAL look.  Please make sure you check with your plumber that this is optimal as some bathrooms are plumbed differently.

Another great way to store away all your cosmetics is bathroom mirror cabinets, the great thing is that nowadays they are not bulky and hanging out over the basin, Bathroom Mirror cabinets are now available in a slim projection and they can also be integrated into the wall, to give the streamline illusion with hidden storage. Mirrors are also a great way for reflecting light around a room opening up the space and offering a perfect minimalistic look. By using a Mirrored Cabinet you are minimising the products in the room as you have storage and your mirror in one place.

STICK WITH ONE TYPE OF BATHROOM FITTING

In today’s market, the world is your oyster when choosing bathrooms fittings, from the accessories to the shower you can choose from Chrome, Matt Black or Brushed Brass all matching in design. With all the brassware matching, it gives that clean streamlined feeling which encourages the eye to flow along the uniformed shapes, which achieves a great minimal bathroom.

SHOWERING AREA OF THE BATHROOM

The Showering area can also be incorporated with the colour of the bathroom fittings, by using a glass wetroom shower screen and choosing the same colour profile as your brassware, a wetroom panel will open up the space and elevate the feeling of your bathroom, too!

If you are not into shower cubicles or wetrooms and love your bath, there is fabulous slim back to wall freestanding baths available and you can have your taps fitted on the wall also giving you that lovely minimalist streamline finish. Maybe you have a big luxurious bathroom and can fit in both.

Use minimal shower fittings to encourage that open space, consider installing a rain head shower fitted from the ceiling.

When considering your storage for the shower area, opt for the minimal corner baskets or if this is an option for you, before tiling had a boxed shelf cut out in the wall, this is a great minimal design and leaves your shower products easy to access.

NOW FOR THE BATHROOM TILES

Ceramic tiles are versatile, functional, and easy to keep clean. For a clean, minimalist look, you should stick to a neutral colour palette like white, light grey and very light colours, pastels are back in fashion in the world of interior design. You can choose to add more personality to your space with a pop of colour, but do not overdo it. You should also avoid adding too many patterns or textures to your bathroom’s décor.

It is possible to get creative with your design, think of the shower area, you can feature your design or pop of colour here, or behind the basin is another great area to add character, so you can express yourself while keeping things minimal in your bathroom.

Tiling your bathroom, Kitchen or any room in your home and you just can’t imagine the finished look? we will be happy to help. Visit the 101 Bathrooms Showroom Tullamore for a wander, with over 100 displays, it’s a world of inspiration.

But how do you calculate the number of tiles that you need so that you do not buy too few or too many? It is simpler than you might think. We can also do this for you, but you do need some basic measurements before you can purchase your tiles.

When estimating the number of tiles, you must consider some aspects. First, the dimensions of the room, but also the dimensions and shape of the tiles, the pattern of their arrangement and whether you are planning to install decorative elements such as Décor Tiles, Borders, or mosaics.

1

Calculating the area

First things first, to calculate the surface area to be covered with tiles, you must measure (in feet to get square yards required) the width and length of the floor, as well as the width and height of the walls.

If you do not want to lay the tiles up to the ceiling, but only to a certain level, for example, just above the bath or washbasin – only take this height into account.

Then multiply the height or length by the width in feet (separately for the floor and walls) then divide this by 9 it will give you how many square yards you required.

Then add at least 5-10 percent to allow for cutting and waste, the amount of wastage from cutting the tiles depends of the size and shape of the tiles against the size of the room, it also depends of the shape of the room.

The window and door area can be deducted, but if the window is small best to leave in to allow for waste when tiles in around the window.

2

Example

Floor – 4ft x 9ft = 36ft / by 9 = 4 square yards + 10% (for cutting) 4.4 square yards

4 Walls – 20ft x 8ft = 160ft / by 9 = 17.77 square yards + 10% (for cutting) 19.55 square yards

I would recommend you always make sure you have enough tiles as purchasing additional tiles later may prove to be problematic, or even impossible. The new batches can have a slightly different colour and may not match the previously purchased tiles perfectly. It is not uncommon for manufacturers to terminate the production of a particular collection.

If you intend to introduce decorative features such as border tiles, mosaics or décor tiles, you have to calculate their exact number. In the case of strips, it is simple – if you want them on each wall in the form of a straight line – measure the length of all walls and divide it by the length of a single décor piece. The surface area of decorative elements – Borders or décors can be subtracted from the total surface area of the basic tiles.

3

Example

4 Walls – 20ft / by Size of border/Décor 2ft = 10 pieces + maybe 2or3 (for cutting)

Please do not worry, once you have the basic measurements of the room, we are here to help with the rest and our website even has a calculator to tell you how many boxes of tiles to buy all you need to do is measure the area you want to cover.

I hope your room is picture-perfect as you imagined. 😉

LAKE STONE LAPPATO PORCELAIN – SUITABLE FOR FLOORS AND WALLS

Marble has been reigning in interiors for many years. It is appreciated for its characteristic structure, minimalist form and timeless elegance. Lake Stone Opoczno tiles are glazed gres, i.e. mass-colored gres, inspired by marble. Light grey stone not only looks great, but is also extremely functional. It will look perfect in many different spaces: on the terrace, in the living room, in the kitchen and in the bathroom. Smooth, pleasant to the touch surface is another advantage of the Lake Stone series. It allows you to give the rooms refinement and cosy warmth at the same time. It is a great choice both for the floor in a small bathroom and for the living room in a large single-family house. Subtle shades and unobtrusive design – for everyone.

COSIMA  – CERAMIC WALL TILES AND PORCELAIN FLOOR TILES

Do you feel great in classic, tastefully decorated spaces? This is an example of a timelessly beautiful collection made of majestic stone, which, thanks to the use of satin glaze, is deceptively similar to a natural material found in nature. Thanks to these tiles, in your bathroom you can feel like you are in a monumental ancient building. Their graphics in the form of copper and grey veins will be appreciated by particularly demanding customers who will certainly want to emphasize them with skilfully selected accessories, thus creating a unique combination.

GREY BLANKET CERAMIC TILES

An extremely dynamic and original collection whose structure resembles crumpled paper. Such a result was achieved thanks to the combination of uniform grey with scratches and an irregular, three-dimensional structure. The impression is also strengthened by the surface structure – the use of microgranilia enamel for those who will appreciate the unique, delicate, soft surface of the tiles. This solution will also appeal to those who love well-lit rooms – the collection perfectly refracts the light and harmonizes perfectly with it.

CLASSIC OAK WOOD EFFECT PORCELAIN

Do you dream of a modern bathroom design, but at the same time you do not want to give up home cosiness? Wood-inspired tiles from the Classic Oak collection are perfect as a substitute for a plank floor. The light color of the wood-like tiles will help to visually enlarge a small bathroom. It is also perfect for the kitchen, and in larger rooms it will create a unique, warm atmosphere, because the appearance of ceramic tiles resembles real wood.
The Scandinavian style is still in fashion. Natural, wooden elements of the interior attract attention – not only on the floor. Wooden texture floor tiles are a good choice if you are looking for easy-care surfaces. A ceramic tile floor does not require special care, so it will be an excellent choice for busy people. Classic Oak tiles are also perfect for walls. Combine them with minimalist furniture with simple forms and you will get the effect of a classic and stylish kitchen.

COLOUR BLINK

No matter what style we prefer, the Colour Blink collection helps us create the original bathroom that we have always dreamed about. A monochrome subdued interior or a crazy mix of patterns and colours? The choice is ours.
From the smooth base and structural tiles, to the original “roof”-shaped mosaic – within the wide collection of elements anyone can find something to enjoy. If we are seeking bold stylisations and strong colours, we can choose satin-finished turquoise tiles, while anyone preferring more subdued designs have quiet and very universal shades of beige, enlivened by a shiny strip.

 REST CERAMIC WALLS AND PORCELAIN FLOORS

When searching for a perfect colour palette for a bathroom, customers often choose simple, balanced solutions. Shades of white and grey combined with green hues are ideal for elegant, coherent interiors.
The REST collection is a subtle reference to natural stone, skilfully combined with geometrical decoration. These tiles will add a touch of eclecticism to all stylistically harmonious rooms. Thanks to the delicate glossy elements visible only on parts of the tiles, they will be an excellent addition to matt surfaces. The simplicity and subtlety of this collection offer a wide choice of arrangement solutions and thus function as a great base for interior design in various styles.
