A Nod To Tradition

The great news about bathroom design is that you can completely revamp an interior without sacrificing a home’s ambience. It’s always a bit strange to walk through a classic old-style home to discover a contemporary bathroom that feels bizarrely out of place.

But it’s a simple fix.

You can still enjoy all the flash finishes, but you instead simply give a bit of nod to tradition. Whether it’s glamorous marble, sparking chandeliers, floral accents or timber trimmings, it’s possible to have a new bathroom that fits in well with all that you hold dear.

It’s All About The Tiling

While history gave us intricate mosaics, modern tiling – with all its cost-cutting – stripped tile design right back and gave us the big plain white tile. We’ve been making do with it for years now, sometimes adding pizzazz with a feature tile here and there.

Now creative tiling is experiencing a comeback with slick urban stylings, retro revivals and bling bling bling as far as the eye can see. This exciting bling tile is small, shiny and colourful. Embrace it! It’s a lot of fun.
