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.

The Designers said,

“Our brief was to challenge and improve that everyday experience, to introduce better light and offer versatility – Loop was the result.

“The form and styling of the mirror is something we are particularly proud of. Taking cues from consumer trends, Loop’s round styling was an easy choice. This, combined with its slim depth and framed lighting, gives the design a floating effect. We’re firm of the belief that useful technology doesn’t need to look bare and functional, and I think Loop reflects that.”

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

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…

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.

INCORPORATE BATHROOM LIGHTING

Lighting can be a simple way to add style to a minimalist bathroom, by using sleek integrated ceiling lighting and opting for the dimmable version can add ambience to the space. The bathroom cabinets I mentioned before are also available with led mood changing light, this can also give your bathroom just the right lighting.

PUTTING SOME DÉCOR IN THE BATHROOM

Don’t go covering your clean walls with pictures and cluttering up your lovely room, use some nature to décor your bathroom, potted plants are a perfect addition to any minimalist bathroom. They offer a fresh and cheerful look that complements the minimalist style.
