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.

Highlighting our ALITA Exposed Shower Kit and ALITA Wall Mounted Basin Mixers, Certified by the Unified Water Label for their water-saving capabilities

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.

Embracing green in this gorgeous design, showcasing the FREYA Floorstanding Unit in Wreath Green with matching ASPECT Scandinavian Wetroom Panels from our 2024
Collection

For more Inspiration see our SONAS Bathrooms Displays in-store at the 101 Bathrooms Showroom Tullamore

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.

Underfloor Heating for your Kitchen, Bathrooms and Conservatories.

ECOFLOOR Underfloor Heating Mat

ECOFLOOR electric underfloor heating mats are made of a heating cable attached to a fibreglass mesh scrim. The mat can simply be rolled out onto the floor, making installation quick and easy. The mats come complete with double-sided tape on the underside so they can easily be fixed to any clean surface. Our electric underfloor heating mats are available in two standard power ratings: 150 Watt mats for internal applications including kitchens and bathrooms and 200 Watt mats for conservatory use or areas where high heat losses can occur.

Some Benefits of The Underfloor Heating Mat

  • Loose wire systems can be shaped to suit the shape of the room that you’re laying heating in, which is great if you’re working with any tricky dimensions.
  • With electric underfloor heating, you get a radiant warmth that is transmitted upwards from the floor, rather than the warmth being circulated around the room like you’d get with a conventional radiator. This means that with an effectively installed electric system, you won’t get cold spots.
  • Electric underfloor heating is widely considered the go-to solution for standalone rooms if you’re not planning to upgrade the central heating system throughout your whole property. This is because the system doesn’t need to be connected back to a central manifold, so it’s straightforward to install in one room without any disruption in other areas of the house.
  • With no radiators on your walls, you will find that your rooms now have that extra bit of space and remove any restrictions that a radiator can pose on the layout of your rooms. This will also be especially noticeable if you decide to decorate a room, without having to work around radiators.

The other side of the story

  • The initial cost of installing some underfloor heating systems can be higher than other heating systems, depending on the size of the room it is being fitted in. As well the cost for the underfloor heating, you will also need to consider the fitting of it, additional items such as thermostats and insulation boards, and also the cost of an approved electrician to wire the system to your mains supply.
    • Another potential cost to think about is removing and replacing the existing flooring if installing in an existing property rather than a new build.
  • Depending on whether you are having underfloor heating installed in a new build property or an existing room or property, you will need to consider the upheaval of emptying the rooms so that under the floor can be accessed for installation, this could also mean that the room is inaccessible during this time, although electric underfloor heating systems are usually quite quick to install.
Under Tile/Stone Floors

Underfloor Heating Mat Features

  • Approved to EN60335-2-96 as required by the 18th Edition Wiring Regulations (BS7671:2008)
  • Two heat outputs – 150W/m2 and 200W/m2
  • Quick installation – Simply roll out the electric underfloor heating mat & fix to the floor
  • Suitable for tile, stone, slate and marble floor finishes
  • Continuous metallic earth screen to ensure electrical safety
  • Low build height – Minimal floor height build up
  • Suitable for use in wet areas
  • EMC Safe

Underfloor Heating Mat Specification

  • Max Power Loading – 150W/m² or 200W/m²
  • Diameter – 3.0mm – 4.0mm
  • 230V supply
  • Twin conductor heating cable with single 3m “cold tail” connection lead

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.

Almost every activity we perform in the Bathroom every day requires the use of water. Here are some tips on how to protect your bathroom Walls, floors, furniture and accessories from the harmful effects of moisture.

Seal Under The Tiles

Fortunately, there are many materials and solutions available on the market that help effectively protect floors and walls from moisture. Tanking System is a waterproof membrane system designed to protect tiled areas in wet rooms, showers, bathrooms, and kitchen areas. A tanking system will inhibit the passage of moisture from within the tiled area into the substrates such as plaster, tile backer boards, timber, suspended floors, concrete floors and plywood overlays, which are used before laying the tiles. Properly used, it will effectively prevent the penetration of water into the walls.

 Seal your Bathing Area

Use a flexible rubber seal that will set a permanent waterproof seal between the item being installed and the installation environment.  Since the rubber is flexible, it will maintain a watertight seal whilst allowing for a certain amount of movement that is inevitable, particularly with new builds.

Bathroom Ventilation

Although one broken pipe can cause dramatic damage, the practically unnoticed water vapour deposited on the walls and bathroom furnishing every day can also be destructive. The best protection against it is sufficient ventilation. Due to inefficient gravitational ventilation in buildings, dampness occurs, not only in bathrooms but even in entire apartments and houses! A simple and relatively effective way to improve the efficiency of ventilation is to install forced ventilation – that is, suitable electric extractor fans.

The extractor fan allows drier, fresh air to circulate through the room. Extractor fans can also be used in kitchens and utility rooms to extract pollutants and moisture. They are must-haves in many bathrooms and wet rooms because these are the rooms that tend to create the most moisture in the average home.

N.B. All electrical work must be carried out by a qualified electrician.
