Japandi Bathrooms

VitrA Sento

Interior designers across the globe are loving Japandi – the simple and functional shared focus from Japan and Scandinavia.

Japanese and Scandinavia styling

More and more of us are wanting a spa-like bathroom. The zen-like, tranquil settings of the natural hot springs found throughout Japan provide inspiration.

Scandinavia or ‘Scandi’ style bathrooms with their minimalist, sleek and functional offering have also become hugely popular, this popularity has been further influenced with crime dramas such as The Bridge, The Killing, Thin Blue Line and The Valhalla Murders! And don’t we all like a good shop at Ikea!

Whilst there are obvious differences, Scandi and Japanese styles have lots in common. For instance, they both make use of organic, natural materials and both use textures resulting in a contemporary, simplistic look.

Let’s have a look at what Japandi is

Japandi is a fusion of styles from both Japan and Scandinavia. To understand this further we need to consider three concepts; wabi-sabi, lagom and hygge.

Wabi-sabi translates from Japanese as ‘finding the beauty in imperfection’. Think of a natural form that is far from perfect yet still beautiful because of its imperfections. Such as a piece of oak with splits, growth rings, irregular grains and knots. These imperfections make each piece of wood unique, adding character and enhancing the beauty of this natural material.

Lagom comes from the Swedish proverb “lagom ar bast” meaning “just enough”. Lagom translates to keeping simple and free of clutter.

Hygge is a Norwegian/Danish word and is more of a feeling that you get when you are home, when you are warm and cosy, happy and relaxed. Imagine being in front of a roaring log fire, sat on a gorgeous sheepskin rug – that is hygge.

Japanese and Scandinavian – similarities in design

Both Japanese and Scandinavian cultures place high value on quality and workmanship and produce minimalistic, simple furniture. Both also use organic, natural materials such as wood, stone and glass. Similarities in design can also be found in the use of natural colours, with both favouring a neutral palette for their interior design.

What are the features of Japandi styling?

Japandi features the use of natural, organic materials and natural colours. Styling is simple and uncluttered and sustainability is at the heart of Japandi with items built to last, handmade yet functional pieces are used wherever possible.

When you imagine Japandi style then think harmony, tranquility and relaxation.  Your Japandi bathroom will be the place where you can chill and de-stress.

How to get the Japandi look

The main thing to remember when you’re creating your Japandi bathroom is to keep it simple, don’t crowd the room, don’t overdress the space. Choose your fixtures and fitting with care, buying pieces that are durable and that will stand the test of time.

Keep your colour palette neutral to achieve the Japandi look. Add plants to enhance the natural feel of your bathroom. Opt for ambient lighting and use organic materials in your design such as a wooden vanity unit or shelving.  Granite and stone are other natural materials that work well to achieve the Japandi style.

A freestanding bath with clean lines will work beautifully. Remember the bigger the bath the more precious water you will use. We love the Villeroy and Boch Theano Freestanding Bath which comes in two sizes.

Your shower area should be kept minimal, try to incorporate those natural elements and remember that Japandi style is also about balance light and dark. Choose a black framed shower panel such as the Crosswater Design 8 Matt Black Walk In Shower Panel. Introduce texture with natural materials such as the Crosswater Arena 1000mm Wall-Hung Vanity Unit in Modern Oak.

The Villeroy and Boch Antheus Wall Hung Rimless WC will sit (excuse the pun) beautifully in your Japandi bathroom with its clean modern lines. This toilet’s rimless bowl technology eliminates the rim from the inside of the toilet bowl, thanks to the newly developed flush type. Not only does the toilet look more great but hygiene is improved as the rimless bowl is 95% more hygienic than a normal toilet bowl.

How to accessorise your Japandi bathroom

This is an easy one – as you need to keep your accessories to a minimum. Think functional, for instance toilet brush holder, soap dish, toilet roll holder – and keep other clutter tucked away. Use natural wicker baskets if you need extra storage space – they are ideal to hide away extra toilet rolls and hand towels!

Bath mats and bathroom towels should be neutral in colour.  But don’t forget the odd plant or two will enhance the space.

CURVE APPEAL FOR YOUR BATHROOM

If you want to be ahead of trend then get curve appeal in your new bathroom. Curvaceous bathrooms are predicted to be the trend for 2022.

Curves are in

These days our bathrooms need to be not just functional but also a sanctuary of relaxation. A place where we can shut out the world for a little while and rest. And that’s why we agree with Pinterest’s new ‘Predicts’ that curves and soft lines are going to be big in 2022.

New bathroom collections do away with square, harsh edges and introduce a softer, gentler style that really does give your space that chilled out vibe.

 

Adopt a rounded approach

It’s not just bathroom furniture that’s going curvy. It’s everything from toilet to basin, bath to showerhead, taps to mirrors. This ‘rounded’ approach will make your bathroom feel that little bit more indulgent. A place where you can recharge your batteries, whatever time of day.

VitrA’s new Liquid by Tom Dixon

One of the most exciting collections with curve appeal is the recently launched VitrA Liquid.  Liquid is a unique collaboration between designer Tom Dixon and the leading bathroom brand and is all about expressive minimalism. It’s soft and rounded forms are generous in proportion and eradicate all sharp edges from the bathroom.

All elements of the bathroom

As well as looking good, the collection is tactile and functional and encompasses all elements of the bathroom, from ceramics to brassware, tiles to accessories.

Ceramics have been extended beyond the traditional realms of basins and sanitaryware, including a rotund stool which can be used in the shower or anywhere else in the home. 

Tom Dixon’s theme continues into the expressive showerheads and controls.  The whole collection incorporates fatter, softer lines that are more generous, long-lasting and stronger.

Not just for the home

Taps and showers are available in chrome or gloss black finish for a contrast.  The products can be combined flexibly to create a unique style and purpose and are designed for use either in the home or professional environments, including offices, hotels and restaurants.

At a time when there is more emphasis being placed on the bathroom, this unique collection is both innovative and contemporary and will certainly add curve appeal to your space.

We will advise, product source, help with the planning process and create a bathroom design using the 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 life shield glass on the shower enclosure. To the modern chrome finish throughout the design.  All of the fabulous products are sold on our site.

A breakdown 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-colored 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 in 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 luxurious towels will be hung and warmed easily.

Finally, the Keuco Recessed Mirror 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

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).

 

Bathroom Design Service

Since the launch of our new 3D Bathroom Design Service our design consultants have been busy creating dream bathrooms for our customers.

One of the very first bathrooms designed by us was for a London based customer.  The brief was to make use of the light and spacious 2nd floor space that offered great views from its windows.

Our design consultant chatted via Zoom with the client and our design consultant put together this lovely layout, maximising the space available.  The customer wanted a separate shower and a freestanding bath and our designer was able to hide away the pipework in the clever shelving behind the vanity unit.

The gorgeous Victoria + Albert Roxburgh freestanding bath makes a real statement placed in front of the window.

A walk in shower has been created with the Matki One Shower Screen which never fails to impress.  The customer had a penchant for traditional brassware and so we selected brassware from the Burlington range.

 

 

Pantone’s colour of the year 2021

For only the second time in more than 20 years, Pantone’s colour of the year 2021 will be TWO colours: Pantone 17-5104 Ultimate Gray and Pantone 13–647 Illuminating.  

Two independent colours that show how different elements come together to support one another, a lesson learned by everyone in 2020 and hopefully one we can continue to practice in 2021.

These two colours give us practicality and solidness and at the same time warmth and optimism, the joining of Pantone 17-5104 Ultimate Gray and Pantone 13-0647 Illuminating is “one of strength and positivity” says Pantone.  Definitely a story of colour that catches a deep feeling of thoughtfulness along with a promise of sunnier times ahead!

Pantone 13-0647 Illuminating is a cheerful, bright yellow alive and brimming with vivacity. Pantone 17-5104 Ultimate Gray reflects solid and dependable elements, a firm foundation and everlasting qualities.  It is quietly reassuring, standing the test of time and resilient in its nature.

Two colours for 2021 – with a great deal of meaning for us all.
