Designing a bathroom is all about finding balance between your dreams, your functional needs and your budget. Bathrooms need to work efficiently but ideally they also need to give you a little bit of enjoyable time to yourself amid a busy day. Take time choosing your bathroom fixtures to make certain you get the right mix of practicality and luxury. We recommend using the 3D Design Planner to create a threedimensional model of your bathroom space and arrange the fittings of your choice inside it.
Traditional drop in baths with a bath screen are ideal for bath/shower combos and are great for families. Freestanding or back to wall baths can create a sense of space in a small bathroom. Thoroughly measure up your space, including the door frames of your bathroom and home to ensure your bath will fit through the door! View our Bath range.
For an uncomplicated, seamless bathroom look, it’s hard to beat a walk in shower. The key here is to layer the space by choosing a feature backdrop of glass, niches for storage instead of glass shelves, and a foot nook for ease of shaving. For added luxury, a simple slide rail shower can be complemented by a rain shower emerging from the ceiling. As for tapware, a family bathroom shower should aim for water efficiency while also delivering a good shower experience within a short time. Understanding your water pressure and choosing the right shower mixer also helps make your shower more enjoyable to use every day.

3. Basins + Tapware
Consider basins which echoes the look of your bath and toilet, tonally and texturally. While rustic stone options have become more widespread, metallic basins are emerging as a favourite. It’s worth spending a little more money on a tap you’ll love. A good tap should suit the style of your bathroom and feel good to touch and manoeuvre. Soft golds, brushed brass and gunmetal will be trending for 2020. View our basins + tapware range.
