We are really pleased with how we were able to transform this old bathroom into a modern high end wet room. As you can see the old bathroom was looking tired and felt cold and unwelcoming.

The Genesis tiles colour matching trims were purchased from Tech Tiles Ireland and all put together by our amazing team at Bespoke bathrooms.   If you have a bathroom that has seen better days then why not take the first step to making the transformation?

We are all aware that the actions we take in our day to day life add up to have a big impact on our planet.

The days of the basic three-piece combination of shower set, basic toilet and a simple basin to carry out your daily regime are long gone. The bathroom in many homes has evolved from a purely functional room to an spa like area for self-care. In the past bathrooms were purely about functionality. Today's customers are more discerning and are looking for their bathroom to make a statement and have some of that wow factor. The rise of social media and the accessibility of far more examples of peoples homes all adds fuel to this fire. Even though bathrooms are small rooms compared to other spaces in a home they can quickly present big problems if they aren't designed correctly. It is important to look at the finer details such as lighting, flooring finishes and storage, and to make sure measurements are done right. Consideration needs to be given...

During the bathroom design phase of a project we often get asked what are the best options for storage? How do you make a bathroom functional but also keep the sense of style?

Recesses can be created in walls and then tiled to provide a seamless finish. This is our preferred method for adding storage within showers or alongside baths. It maximizes the space...

Over the years we have encountered lots of Bathroom mistakes that people have asked us to come and rectify. The following are the most frequent mistakes that we see people making 1. Not budgeting properly It can be easy to overspend when in any renovation project and bathrooms are no different. If you're not in control then costs can quickly spiral and end up much higher. To ensure you don't overspend we recommend using an Excel or Google sheet with everything itemised. This way you can see at a glance exactly what the bottom line is. Having a contingency of about 20 per cent is also good practice, just in case. Don't be tempted to cut corners and use inferior materials, inevitably this will end up costing you more in the long run. 2. Rushing in and not doing proper research It's easy to get carried away with the latest...
