Timeless, Lasting Bathroom Spaces

Modern bathrooms cater for the modern family with a focus on minimalism –and clean lines, plenty of countertop space and open areas can all help to achieve this. As a result, many customers are favouring squared-off close coupled WCs with basins to match or wall-hung WCs with hidden cisterns. Shower toilets are also an emerging trend, as bathrooms become more ‘ intelligent’ and sustainable. All of these options work well in smaller bathrooms, allowing homeowners to achieve a modern bathroom in the smallest of spaces.

If space permits, a sense of luxury can easily be added with a vanity unit or console that combines concealed storage below with a countertop or recessed basin above. Soft-close doors and drawers will add to the premium look and feel. Dual basins provide added practicality and are ideal for luxurious en-suites while a heated mirror or mirrored cabinet with demister and Bluetooth connection for listening to your favourite tunes as you shower will create the ultimate calming sanctuary

Modern Walk-In Showers

A walk-in shower or wet room is one of the most popular ways of creating a modern bathroom look. Large, frameless glass panels prevent the shower from feeling closed-in and with a variety of different-sized shower trays to choose from, the showering space can be as large as is needed. Added benefits such as easy-clean glass coatings and frosted glass designs will ensure the shower is low maintenance as well as stylish.

When considering a walk-in shower, seeking expert advice early on in the project can make all the difference. We can advise on low-profile trays and the specialist waste fittings required to make them work effectively. Low-level trays create a seamless finish as well as being ultra-practical and future-proof, they are suitable for all ages and abilities. Digital thermostatic showers are also a great option, as they can be remote-controlled and ensure the water is at the perfect temperature before stepping in.

Modern Bathroom Tiles

When it comes to tiling a modern bathroom, there are so many choices in terms of style, design, colour and finish. Glossy, bevelled brick tiles can help prevent the bathroom from feeling flat, adding a bit of dimension back into the room. Look for a crackle glaze or iridescent finish or choose a textured stone for a natural, organic look. Alternatively, enhance a feeling of space in a compact bathroom with crisp white tiles and contrast with on-trend matt black or brushed gold brassware.

Porcelain tiles are low maintenance, durable and easy to clean and are available in a wide range of formats from micro-mosaics to large format designs. Consider using the same tiles for walls and floor for a seamless look or choose matching grouting to enhance a feeling of space. We can offer advice on the best tile and grout combinations to suit your room.

Creating a Contemporary Bathroom Design

Contemporary and modern bathroom design focuses on minimalism, cleanliness, storage and the practical use of the space. When creating a design for our clients, we will first discuss in detail who will be using the bathroom and how they are planning to use the space. We will then work to create a layout which is as spacious and practical as possible.

The use of wall-hung toilets and vanity units maintains the “easy to keep clean” ethos and integrating lots of practical storage beneath the vanity unit, in wall-mounted or recessed mirrored cabinets adds to keeping the basin countertop clear and tidy.

Design Process

Key Design Elements

The most important factor in the success of a contemporary bathroom design is maximising the use of the space and maintaining clean lines. Clients who are drawn toward this style of bathroom design often also require lots of storage to ensure their bathroom is free from clutter. Once we have completed the planning of the bathroom layout, we would then look at the specification of the storage including the bathroom vanity unit, further storage and mirrored cabinets to maximise the storage within the space. Wall-hung toilets require a concealed cistern which can only be mounted in a studwork wall and require a framework to support the toilet.

Lighting is of paramount importance and we would work with clients to create bespoke lighting plans for their bathrooms. This may include recessed LED spotlights, LED feature lights and Strip Lighting. We can also supply bathroom vanity units with integrated LED lighting within the drawers or beneath the vanity unit to add further layering to the lighting within the bathroom design.
