Showers Cubicles/Wet Rooms

A tell-tale staple of the contemporary bathroom is a stylish shower cubicle. There are so many different shapes, styles and types to choose from now, it’s a good idea to arrange a consultation to ensure you’re getting the right one for your needs. Walk-in showers are a fantastic way to modernise a bathroom, bringing a sleek hotel or spa feel to any space. Wet rooms are also a popular addition as they look great, are easy to keep clean and are helpful for people with mobility problems.

Free-standing baths

These have been popular in bathroom refurbs for quite a few years now, and it’s not hard to see why. The bathroom has become synonymous with relaxation, and a stylish freestanding bath in copper or rose gold screams this.


Although brightly coloured and patterned tiles are de rigueur and look like they’re here to stay for a while, a sleek and contemporary bathroom is usually kitted out with plainer tiles in a dark or light hue . If you want something a bit different, choose a patterned or monochrome tile.

Fixtures and Fittings

If you want a sleek and contemporary bathroom, you want sleek and contemporary taps. There are lots of great tap manufacturers out there, with the German brands, such as Hansgrohe, being some of the best. If you need a point in the right direction, please come in for a free consultation or chat.


Lighting is sometimes last on the list when it people start thinking of bathroom design, but good lighting is essential in creating the space you want. A well-lit bathroom makes it a usable and practical space, perfect for grooming and relaxation, but it also helps accentuate the design of your bathroom, complementing the lines, shapes and colours. Think about whether you want a soft-lit area for relaxation, a well-lit area for makeup application and/or personal grooming, and whether you want ceiling lights or light fittings.
