Time to make your bathroom Blossom with our spring sale!

Nothing says spring like the blooming blossom in the trees. Why not replicate that in your bathroom. Don’t worry, these looks will last way beyond the freshness of spring. They are timeless modern-contemporary looks. That will create relaxation in both practicality and aesthetics. Here at UK Bathrooms, we currently have a sale on most of the amazing items within this post. There is also a 1-2 day delivery time on them too, so you can get the most out of your bathroom this spring and beyond.

Find your blossom

This bathroom is centered around the Origin Copper accessories from VitrA. These accessories are a beautiful rose gold color to match the blossom in bloom. The coordination between the pieces in this bathroom allows for a divine sense of integration. Which will assuredly ooze a sense of relaxation.

 

Basin & Mixer

VitrA Origin Copper Basin Mixer Tap

We start off subtly with the Crosswater Torino A Midi Undermounted Basin which is rectangular in shape and chic in nature. It is clean, understated, and recessed under the countertop. It is special in its own right and won’t steal the show from your beautiful Origin Copper Accessories. Standing sturdy above the recessed basin is the VitrA Origin Copper Basin Mixer which will complement the rest of your accessorized ‘blossom’ coloured bathroom.

Accessories

VitrA Origin Copper Toilet Roll Holder

The VitrA Origin Copper Towel Rail is a good medium-sized towel rail at 45cm. It would match perfectly with the VitrA Origin Copper Robe Hooks. As well as the Toilet Roll Holder and Mounted Toilet Brush for a lovely set of matching copper bathroom solutions. There is the choice of a VitrA Origin Copper Three Way Shower Kit which would create a complete set within your bathroom.

Shower System

Grohe Rainshower SmartControl 360 DUO Shower System

However, I suggest using the Grohe Rainshower SmartControl 360 Duo Shower System. This system will create an extra layer of sophistication and luxury in one shining chrome package. It provides an entirely personal shower experience using relaxation and style at its core. The system is equipped with GROHE TrioMessage to spray to provide an ultimate feeling of comfort. In which you can experience the ambiance of a spa within your bathroom every day of the year.

Abacus M Series Walk In Shower Screen, with Return Panel

To continue the aura of pleasure throughout this bathroom. Next, I would recommend the Abacus M Series Walk-in Shower Screen with Return Panel. It suits a stylish and contemporary bathroom with its clean and minimalistic design. The shower screen creates a surreal illusion of space as it allows so much light to shine through.

LED Mirror

Burlington Illuminated LED Mirror

Speaking about light, you don’t want to miss out on this beautiful Burlington Illuminated LED Mirror. Which comes with the choice of Grey, Matt White, Olive, and Sand colors. It works immensely well in a modern-contemporary classic bathroom. The LED lighting is also much more economical than standard lighting and the bulbs have a longer lifespan.

 

Toilet System

VitrA Vitrus Glass Covered Concealed Cistern for wall hung pan

Every bathroom, of course, needs a toilet. I suggest the Crosswater Arena toilet which is a wall hanging unit. To conceal the cistern, I would suggest using the VitrA Vitrus Glass Covered Concealed Cistern. It is designed as chic in design and fits into any modern bathroom. We would also suggest using the VitrA Sirius Flush Plate alongside this.

5 Bathroom Flooring Ideas 

Choosing the flooring for your bathroom can feel like a daunting decision. The type of flooring you choose can change the whole dynamic of your bathroom. Whether you’re considering floor tiles, natural stone or vinyl flooring read on for interior design inspiration!

Something classic

VB washbasin mosaic tiles

If you’re going for a classic look then these monochrome ceramic mosaic tiles are a perfect choice! This type of porcelain tile are the height of traditional style and make cleaning quick and easy. They are best paired with a similar style wall tile too. By incorporating black and white matching towels and other accessories you can complete the look. Otherwise using an accent colour could also bring the space to life and give the room a bit of personality. Plus it’s easy to switch out to a different colour to update your room on a budget! 

Sleek and modern tiles

Crosswater Optix 10 brushed stainless steel

Having ceiling to floor marble slate tiles is aspirational and looks impressive in any bathroom. They give a real polished looking surface and look very sophisticated. Despite being very durable, there is also a worry that they are slippery and not suitable for children. There is a non-slip tile available for shower rooms that prevent slipping. In the other area of the room, it’s best to have rugs and other non-slip materials near the bathtub or shower to prevent any accidents. 

Make the flooring the focal point

Crosswater main bathroom suite

If you’re wanting to make a statement, these patterned tiles are a thing of beauty. They’re versatile in a way that you can pick the accent colours from the tiles to accessorise the space to keep up with fashion trends. There’s so many types to choose from too, from moroccan styles to geometric patterns. Using a different coloured grout is also an idea to consider to bring the room to life. 

Versatile natural stone

Imperial Baglioni iron bath

Natural stone or limestone gives a sense of that spa-like feeling. If treated correctly this type of flooring can last for years. It is naturally non-slip due to the rock-like texture and the way it naturally retains moisture. This style of flooring is super versatile as it suits modern industrial designs but also more neutral earthy looks too. 

The wood effects

Wood bathroom flooring

Another option would be to use a wood effect vinyl for your floor. Vinyl (polyvinyl chloride) is a synthetic flooring option that is watertight and easy to install. It provides durability and looks great, whilst being low maintenance and super easy to clean. Placing the grain of the wood to run lengthways in your bathroom can also give the illusion of a bigger room too. Having vinyl flooring is less of a commitment than real wood (also more cost effective!) so it allows you to refresh the space with new flooring without disturbing everything too much. 

Crosswater bathroom bundle

Laminate isn’t the obvious choice for a bathroom due to worries that it will expand and have to be replaced. But actually, there are waterproofing effects available so that it becomes suitable for the bathroom. The benefits of laminate are that it creates the feel of real wood without the worry of causing damage to it. It also has a textured surface so you will be less likely to slip. You could also consider engineered wood which is more expensive than laminate. It is suitable for bathrooms and looks like more realistic wood than laminate. 

Underfloor heating

If you’re looking to install underfloor heating, you may be wondering which is the best type of flooring to have. Using a material that will retain the temperature is important! Natural stone flooring and ceramic tiles are the most effective as they hold the heat well and give the best heat transfer. Vinyl, laminate and engineered wood are also good choices.

What is the difference between laminate flooring and engineered wood?

The main difference between the two is the way they are structured. Engineered wood is constructed in a lot more layers than laminate flooring. It also gives more of a realistic finish than laminate and is better susceptible to water damage. 

However, laminate is the most durable of the two and is easy to install and replace. It is great for families with children as it is easy to clean and can handle excessive general wear and tear. The downside to laminate is that if it does become damaged, the whole floor would have to be replaced. Engineered wood is a lot easier to replace but is more expensive than laminate and is easier to damage. 

 

A month in the life of a Digital Marketing Apprentice

How do you manage your time?

The structure of my week is split into four days of ukBathrooms work, and one day of apprenticeship learning work. Some weeks we have virtual lessons which also take up a day. On a day-to-day basis for ukBathrooms, my role can vary. I split the total time into two aspects at the moment, SEO & Social media management.

The SEO work covered by Chris, is wonderfully helpful and informative on the subject. We (Danielle and I), are tasked with creating blog posts, editing and rewriting subcategories on the website among many other things. While also taking into account how we use backlinking, keywords, and copy in our work.

 

Digital marketing apprentice at his deskThe other side is covered by Jo, who is passionate, engaging, and never fails to support us when we are confused or need help. Here, we are tasked with managing the social media platforms. I’m in control of Pinterest and Youtube. Although there is some overlap with Danielle as we have both agreed that any Youtube video we post can be posted as an IGTV. So I do the editing for that as well. Another part of Jo’s work is creating banners. I have created (at point of writing this) 108 banners for the Affiliates.

We are also tasked with creating the quarterly internal Newsletter. We have just sent out the most recent one. I do the copy and narrative, Danielle does the design. We found this to be a great way to get to know many people in the office and warehouse.

What have you learned since starting your apprenticeship?

Pre-apprenticeship I had a lot of ‘loose’ knowledge of digital marketing. From odd youtube videos and personal research. With the backing of this apprenticeship, I have started to fill the gaps in my knowledge. I had never done business at school or university. In this course, we have started to learn about how certain businesses fit within the structure of civilization. We also have classes where we have peers across the north of England, going through the process with us. It’s been great to network with them so far, and we are doing group projects with them too!

How does the job differ from what you expected before starting?

Before starting I was expecting to take on a determined role, like in an agency. However, in reality, it is the opposite. We have been given certain tasks that suit our skills, and we are expanding on them constantly. For example, I have been tasked with editing a video for our YouTube channel as well as keeping the Pinterest account up to date. I am in the process of introducing a PPC campaign to Pinterest too.

What is ukBathrooms like?

Imagine an office in a highrise, with no accessibility to the outside world. Constantly glued to your screen with a sign above your head that reads “you are not being paid to talk”. Well, it’s definitely not that!

A view of Ripon CathedralAt ukBathrooms, I had settled in within a week of being there. All the staff are amazingly friendly and dedicated to constantly improving the brand. I am inspired to work here, and I cannot wait to see where this company goes. I am sitting next to Danielle which is great because we can bounce ideas off each other and has made the entire ‘new job’ anxiety dissipate pretty fast. Behind me are the Product Marketing team, where our line manager sits, and the rest of the team. I cannot express how happy I am that they are friendly, hardworking, and fun.

The location here is great too. So far I have been on a couple of socially distanced walks with the product marketing team on our lunch break around the canals and rivers. The area is beautiful, and so refreshing after coming from a big city like Liverpool. Here is a collage of images I took the other day.

What training have you attended with Apprentify?

So far we have attended a virtual lesson covering our basic marketing principles unit. We have another penciled in for the following week (although this blog will probably be posted after). Although it was based around the basics of the subject I found it enlightening and captivating. It was a good first look into what is to come over the next 13-15 months.

As an Apprentify apprentice, we have a development coach who supports us and keeps us informed throughout the process. My development coach is Rebecca Craven who is situated over in York. Only a stone throw away from us. Although we have not yet face to face because of COVID, I hope that when everything begins to relax that we can.

Is your apprenticeship overall what you expected it to be?

This time last year I was at University doing Fine Art, and at the time I thought I could be an artist full-time. With COVID and the declining job market, I very quickly realised that this was not a viable option. I am grateful for the support and encouragement that Apprentify has granted so far in this journey.

So overall, yes. I remember the first day I was so nervous about the job, the apprenticeship and how it would all enfold over the next year. Within hours, I was put at ease with the job, the environment I’m in and the people I would be working with. When the apprenticeship started and we virtually met Rebecca, all my anxiety lifted. I think that the apprenticeship will be a great stepping stone into my future, both with ukBathrooms and my knowledge in the industry.

3D Bathroom Design Service In Action

At UK Bathrooms we offer a  3D Design Service so we can help you design and create your own dream bathroom. Our expert design consultants have over 20 years of collective design experience. We will advise, product source, help with the planning process and create a bathroom design using latest 3D software which will bring your dream bathroom to life.

Success Story

Recently we had one excited customer who was delighted to receive their new bathroom design. They had given a very rough brief on what they wanted: “I want a modern-contemporary look. I like quality and I want my bathroom to last. After all my family will be using the room several times a day. The bathroom would have to be easy to clean and robust to survive constant use.”

With this brief our design consultant created these beautiful modern-contemporary renders.

Our customer was delighted with the results. As all aspects of the design met his brief. From the family safe lifeshield glass on the shower enclosure. To the modern chrome finish throughout the design.  All of the fabulous products are sold on our site.

A break down of the products:

Storage & Basin

A problem some families find within a bathroom, is that there just isn’t enough space for all their belongings. Our design team engages this by introducing Crosswater’s Glide II range. Which increases storage capabilities in such an elegant way. The Storm Grey Crosswater Glide II Vanity Unit is a great place to start. As it is a prime example of how practicality and charm can be so easily intertwined. On top sits the tall mineral marble cast basin which is a fresh, immaculate surface for pure satisfaction when it comes to cleaning. The handleless drawers are also another key practical feature to this design and their soft-closing motion adds to the luxury of this unit.

As for taps, our design team suggested the Grohe Allure Basin Mixer Tap. This mixer tap has a sleek u-shaped spout, and a chrome coloured finish to match with all the other details across the bathroom.

Paired with the vanity unit, is the Crosswater Glide II Tower This tower’s surfaces are made for constant bathroom use and will last for years and comes with a 15-year warranty. The design is polished and has the same drawer features as the vanity unit. They truly are a great example of functionality through simplicity.

Both units have chrome features as a homage to the modern-contemporary movement. The vanity unit has a chrome overflow ring, whereas the tower has chrome hinges.

Shower Space

The Kudos Ultimate Walk in Showerpack is made with the family in mind. The pack includes their best quality trays, as well as Lifeshield glass. This glass is an extra thick 10mm so it is strong, as well as being able to repel grime, soap and water. Perfect for easing those busy mornings. For peace of mind, there is also a lifetime guarantee. The shower space itself is a perfect size for couples showering, or helping the kids.

Paired with the walk in shower pack is the hansgrohe square shower kit. It has a two head option for pure practicality as well as keen, angular lines as a nod to the contemporary movement. Excitingly the shower is fitted with a RainAir spray pattern, which produces a refreshing air enriched spray. Pure luxury.

The Bath

The Villeroy and Boch Squaro Edge is an opulent inclusion within this bathroom. It provides a real statement piece. It is a high quality, durable and truly beautiful bath. The shape of this bath continues to hit the brief, the rectangular narrow edged walls create a stylish profile that is just astounding. Paired with the bath, is the Grohe Allure Bath Mixer Tap. This mixer tap matches the basin mixer tap with its sleek u-shaped spout and chrome finishes.  The positives don’t just stop at its looks, the bath is also remarkably comfortable. Sublime for when you need some me time.

Toilet

From Crosswater’s Glide II range again, comes the toilet. It is an ideal wall hung toilet with a rimless bowl. The wall hung feature, allows for easy cleaning underneath and around the toilet as there are no pipes below the toilet. As the toilet is rimless, it means that there will be no hidden bacteria beneath the rim. All of this will increase simplicity into your cleaning routine.

Accessories

This Crosswater Kai Towel Warmer in an Anthracite finish screams coolness. Ironic as this towel warmer will do very much the opposite. It is well made and designed to be used within a modern-contemporary bathroom. It has a darker finish than the rest of the chrome features in this bathroom, however it does provide a beautiful focal point for the bathroom. The design of group rails means that even the most flocculent towels will be hung and warmed easily.

Finally, the Keuco Recessed Mirror which has a double door and is another good answer to storage problems. It is an admirable unit of modern-contemporary geometric design. It is even installed with a fully functional dimmable LED light that is eco-friendly as it runs at low power. It provides a divine flow of light across your bathroom, especially when you need to use the toilet at night and don’t want to disturb anyone.

Shower Room Ideas

Bathrooms of any size can be transformed into your dream shower room. Choosing to remove your bath, or even choosing to making better use of the space you have is a big step. If planned well, you will be able to create the perfect space for the whole family to enjoy. Here are some ideas to help you renovate your new shower room!

Recreate that away-from-home feeling

shower room idea 2  shower room idea 1

Get that hotel-spa feel in your own home with a spa-style shower room! The all-over stone effect tiles and neutral tones give that true away-from-home feeling. The dore oak wood panelled vanity unit is great for storage and gives an organic feel to the room. Using lighter colour tiles in shower enclosures create the illusion of a bigger room which is great if you’re looking to open up the space. Combining angular fixtures and accessories with the smooth round mirror can make all the difference to the feel of the room. A simple switch from your old rectangular mirror will instantly modernise your shower room. They’re also super on-trend too!

Make a statement

patterned tile idea 1  patterned tile idea 2

Tied in with the spa-style, Moroccan style inspired shower rooms are another variation to consider. Swap neutral earthy tones for more statement tiles and patterns. The rich colours create an environment that feels distinguished and luxurious. Plan the colour scheme by combining blues, oranges and gold for this look. Tiny tiles work well when framing the area around wall-hung storage cabinets or even a mirror. The Belgravia brushed brass fixtures paired with the classic Moroccan style ceramic styles create that holiday feeling that we all crave.

Pretty in Pink (and Grey)

pink shower room idea

Greys and blush pinks have been a popular choice in other rooms of the house, but what about the bathroom? Accent colours have always been a bathroom theme favourite for all room sizes, with pastel colours becoming more and more popular. Using pops of colour make the space completely customisable and can be changed to suit future trends too. The pink chevron ceramic tiles placed against the chrome fixtures on the shower screens keep in with the room’s theme. Adding your accessories and elements in advance can really help with planning the space. Using matching towels, ornaments and even shampoo bottles make the space completely unique to you!

Incorporate a bold feature wall

feature wall shower room idea

Pink not your thing? This fresh alternative incorporates light airy white spaces with deep green marble effect walls. Why not channel your inner Interior Designer and pick a statement feature colour for your room? Having a bold statement wall draws your focus as you walk in, and this green marble look is truly unique. The wooden elements on the freestanding vanity unit complete the look too. Having such a deep colour is a bold choice, but if the space has plenty of natural lighting it could really pay off. This shower enclosure, in particular, is specifically designed for the shower door to attach straight to the wall. Which is valuable if you’re working with a smaller area.

Best of both worlds

mix and match shower room idea

Terrazzo flooring is great for mix and match colour schemes you may want to have in your new shower room. Here it matches perfectly with the soft pink and green tones in this picture. Combining dark grouted subway tiles with statement geometric ones in the walk-in shower creates a playful space. Doing this for attic rooms or narrow rooms can really help separate the sections of the room to give the illusion of more space.

Bring NYC to your home

black screen idea for shower room

Inspired by Manhattan loft style, the Impey Soho wetroom panels are definitely a statement shower piece. Paired with matt black brassware it is the ultimate monochrome look and surely an on-trend investment. You can add an extra ounce of personality by introducing rich colours, or even some deep green planhttps://www.ukbathrooms.com/shower-enclosures/walk-in-showers/https://www.ukbathrooms.com/wet-rooms/ts for a fresh botanical vibe. This look could work in small spaces and you will still have space to dry off! It comes in many sizes and panelling combinations, enabling you to have a cloakroom shower or en suite, all the way up to a full walk-in shower or wetroom.

Due to be popular for 2021 is the leaning ladder radiator. Its appearance may seem imposing for very small rooms but could work well as a heating solution in those more awkward spaces.

Complete the look

flooring ideas for shower rooms

Another big decision you may have to make will be about which flooring to choose. Tiles may be the obvious option and there’s plenty to choose from! But if you’re looking for a natural feeling space then it’s worth looking into laminate flooring too. The Palio Clic Wood Vinyl flooring give the feel of laminate but is completely waterproof. Made especially for the bathroom. It’s available in all different effects to match your room perfectly.

Country style meets the contemporary

country contemporary idea for shower room

If you’re unsure about whether you want a more traditional or modern style, why not incorporate both? This bathroom combines the stylish modern black bathroom aesthetic with traditional elements such as the Victorian style shower valves and taps. The style is very decadent and looks very luxurious. It would also so look great with an industrial style too, by adding wood instead of the contrasting marble tiles shown. The floor-to-ceiling tiles make messes easy to clean making them completely child friendly! This range by Burlington also includes a black country-style sink and even a toilet for a matching set.

Brand new for 2021

new 2021 shower room idea

Make use of all the quirky alcoves in your home with a recessed shower. This frameless walk-in enclosure has just released and is in a very sought after style. The black tiles paired with brushed brass fittings is sleek and sophisticated. This design uses clever space utilisation by having glass shelves built into the walls to store all your favourite products. The Gallery 10 shower enclosure collection is a brand new release so is the perfect investment to stay on-trend.

 

 

 

 

Ensuite Bathroom Ideas 2021

Are you looking for a fashionable new ensuite bathroom design in 2021? Well, you’re in luck! Through this blog, I will be providing ideas covering four of the hottest trends of this year. This includes Boutique hotels, Modern Contemporary, Crittal, and Traditional/Heritage style bathrooms. All these styles are perfect for a house or apartment with ensuite bathroom spaces.

Many ensuite bathrooms are often small rooms so space-saving must be key. I will be giving ideas for some of the best ways to divide the space and showcasing the best choice of what UK Bathrooms have to offer. I’ll cover; bathroom furniture, showers, sinks, flooring, freestanding baths, and vanity units.

Boutique Hotel Styleboutique hotel ensuite bathroom

Boutique Hotel style bathrooms scream luxury with a hint of meticulous care. The attention to detail is immaculate, everything from the lighting to wall-hung toilets. We will be looking at a neutral plush style for Boutique Hotels.

The Keuco Royal Match Semi-Recessed Mirror Cabinet is a beautiful recessed mirror cabinet. They come with statement lighting fixtures including an electronic sensor. There is also plenty of space for all your possessions and nothing says sumptuousness like cleanliness.

The Matki Boutique Walk-In Corner Shower Enclosure is a fantastic shower enclosure. It is all about creating open space as it is a freestanding walk-in enclosure that will cocoon you in a feeling of utter opulence.

The Villeroy and Boch Avento Wall Hung Toilet and Vanity Unit Pack is a great example of elegance and simplicity. They make it seem as if they are floating which makes floor cleaning quicker and it is beautifully streamlined.

modern contemporary ensuite bathroomModern Contemporary Style

Modern contemporary style bathrooms are very much of the moment. They use the deliberate use of colours and textures to illustrate spaces rather than objects like the more traditional styles.

The Ideal Standard Concept Air Cube 50cm Semi-Countertop Basin holds a bold, angular shape offering a sharp but minimal look. This makes it a deliberately unique design statement for any modern contemporary bathroom. There is also plenty of room within the wood cabinet for all your needs.

The April Cayton Modern Freestanding Oval Bath is a classic oval shape with a high-quality white finish. Making this bathtub a modern piece that fits in most contemporary layouts.

The Keuco Moll range provides the finishing touches to any contemporary sleek bathroom. With its full range of stylish fixtures and accessories.

The Crosswater 25mm Storm Grey Stone Resin Rectangular Shower Tray can cater to many different bathroom sizes. As it comes in seven different sizes. It is also finished in a cool storm grey which makes it a great fit for modern bathroom styles.

Crittal Style

crittal style ensuite bathroom ideas

The Crittal style is nothing new but the way it is being used within bathrooms is. The use of steel-framed shower enclosures or metal framed mirrors can completely transform a space. The Crittal style will allow your ensuite bathroom to become space-saving, light, and relaxing. Crittal is the umbrella term for small glass panes framed by interlocking metal bars. They can come in the form of shower enclosure frames or a wetroom panel. Who knew industrial brassware fixtures and accessories were to become a major trend?

The Impey Soho Black Double Walk-in Wetroom Panel is a great example of how a glass panel can zone an area without creating block walls. You can even pair the wetroom panel with black taps and other accessories for a finished professional look. I would recommend pairing this with a monochrome floor pattern or one of our laminate flooring options. For example the Karndean Palio Clic Vinyl Stone Flooring.

traditional ensuite bathroom ideasTraditional Heritage Style

The traditional style will continue to be timeless. Many bathroom styles have come and gone over the years but Traditional has always stayed. One of the best features traditional bathrooms do is provide an innate sense of sanctuary and privacy. It is the ultimate home experience.

A problem some ensuite bathrooms have is that they are tight on space. Yet, this Burlington Buckingham 1500mm Freestanding Slipper Bath is perfect for a smaller space. It is also of a high standard so you don’t miss out on quality.

Nothing says heritage more than true British workmanship and heart. You can find this in the Burlington Sarah Georgian Basin with Aluminium Washstand.

Finally, the Imperial Antique Crackle Ceramic Wall Tiles create a classic but simple frame that will last the test of time.

3D Bathroom Design Service

UK Bathrooms 3D Bathroom Design Service is tailored to your needs by our team of expert design consultants.  As well as offering advice they provide a product sourcing service and will guide you through every step in planning and designing your dream bathroom.

Since the launch of our 3D Bathroom Design Service earlier this year, we’ve been inundated with requests for bathroom designs.

One of the recent requests came from a homeowner in Huddersfield, West Yorkshire who had an idea on the look he was hoping to achieve for not one, but for two new bathrooms.

The customer gave our design consultant the room dimensions and various points about the two spaces. He also briefed his likes and dislikes including his preference for a classic contemporary look.

The two rooms were designed to make the most of the natural light and considered specifics such which way the doors opened.  The results are two perfectly put together new bathrooms, using products from leading brands such as Crosswater, Villeroy & Boch, Kudos, VitrA, Britton and Zehnder.

With limited space in the ensuite our design consultant was able to keep the room looking light and airy, with a fresh contemporary style.

The Crosswater Svelte 8 walk in shower panel  and the Villeroy and Boch Memento 2.0 toilet.

Our design consultant used a white Carrera marble background to keep the room light and bright.

The main bathroom shows the VitrA Shift wall hung toilet with soft closing seat. Britton’s Shoreditch basin with its matching vanity unit in matt grey works perfectly against the marble tile. 

Crosswater’s MPRO brassware is used in this main bathroom and the stylish Trojan Emerald Double Ended Freestanding Slipper Bath sits perfectly in the design.

The 3D Bathroom Design Service is available without you having to leave the comfort of your own home. Complete our contact form online and we’ll be in touch, it’s as simple as that. The one time fee of £100 per design, is fully refundable against any purchased made £1000 and over).

Imperial Black Sapphire Collection

Merging comfort and style, black bathrooms are here to stay. The Black Sapphire Collection of dark sanitaryware by Imperial Bathrooms ups the ante, finally bringing ceramics over to the dark side.

The bathroom of 2021 has emerged as a space for wellbeing and retreating to for a moment of calm; time spent in the bathroom of today is prized, an opportunity for peace, privacy, self-care and time out from frenetic lives of home working, schooling and multitasking. No longer simply a functional room, bathrooms have become another lifestyle zone within the home, fulfilling emotional needs as well as practical ones, and in response their design has become more expressive, experimental and exciting.

Enter the vogue for black bathrooms, with dark, cave-like spaces creating sanctuaries where the stresses of outside cease to exist. While surfaces, furniture, fixtures and accessories have all been doused in black tones of late, sanitaryware remained traditionally white and bright – until now. Imperial Bathrooms’ new Black Sapphire Collection has put an end to interrupting dark schemes with chunks of dazzling paleness, with the extensive offering, encompassing basins, toilets, bidets and accessories in a myriad of styles, enabling bathrooms to wholly embrace the darkness, as well as adding an unexpected edge to monochrome designs and broader palettes.

‘Black and monochrome rooms soothe the eye and allow an overworked mind a moment of calm’ explains Graeme Borchard, MD at UK Bathrooms. ‘The Black Sapphire Collection from Imperial Bathrooms means that bathrooms can now fully commit to a black palette, and offers wider and bolder options for lovers of statement spaces.’

The range incorporates four sanitaryware families, the first truly comprehensive collection of black bathroom ceramics.

Etoile Black Sapphire

Bedecked in the pigment-rich Black Sapphire finish, the round edges, intricate design and striking silhouettes of the Etoile collection take on an alluring, opulent feel. Each piece is crafted in Britain, repeatedly fired and smoothed to ensure a flawless, glossy finish. Team with high shine tiles in a matching tone and polished metals for maximum effect.

Astoria Deco Black Sapphire

The Astoria Deco range takes on an edgy, moody personality with a glossy Black Sapphire coat. The sculptural quality of its Art Deco angles, defined lines and shapely elegance make a dynamic statement – bring together multiple pieces for high impact and unforgettable wow factor, if you dare.

Drift Black Sapphire

Combining the playfully curved lines of the Drift range with a blackened coat creates a tongue-in-cheek effect, the modern finish and shapes merging with hints of the traditional. Place the subtly decorative ceramics against a white, coloured or patterned backdrop of to make the most of the collection’s design details.

Radcliffe Black Sapphire

With slick lines and an even sharper attitude, the refined Radcliffe range is a nod to classic British bathroom design, made even more stately and statuesque in a shadowy glass-like finish. Style with traditional brassware, lighting and mirrors to complete the powerful, sophisticated aesthetic.
