Plan ahead to make the most of every nook and cranny. False walls are the key in this bathroom. The cistern and unsightly pipework have been boxed in behind the loo with the space above it being used for a handy storage cabinet. One side has a door, the other glass shelves. A similar false wall has also been created behind the bath to include recessed shelves – a stylish, yet practical, feature that includes coloured accent tiles.
New technology has led to ultra thin tiles that can be laid directly over existing flooring and wall tiles. Inkjet technology is used to faithfully replicate stone patterning, which means it is easy to have the classic look of stone without the drawbacks of weight, size limitations and cost. Large-format tiles are now available in sizes measuring up to 3m by 1m, and can be butted against each other to give a seamless finish.
Go for gleaming metallic tones and shimmering greys for a bathroom with glamour. Choose a single tile colour and look for designs in two contrasting textures or finishes. Here, a grey textured design at the head and foot of the bath adds sparkle to the room, while the larger format version elsewhere provides a streamlined low-sheen, matt-finish contrast.
Choose black and white storage for an arresting colour combination that’s stylish and sophisticated. Black floating shelves look smart against a white-painted wall, drawing the eye to the accessories artfully arranged on top of them. Disguise pipes and cisterns with a purpose-built tiled unit – it’ll create a handy extra shelf, too. Sleek under-basin drawers will keep cleaning products and other practical bits and pieces out of sight.
