Bathroom ideas and design inspiration

The bathroom is one of the most frequented rooms in our homes – so, it’s important they should be spacious, functional and even beautiful. But where should you start? From storage to décor, here are some of our favourite bathroom ideas and some design inspiration too.

Bathroom tile ideas

Bathroom ideas with grey tiles and pink accents

When it comes to the design of family bathrooms, ensuites and second bathrooms, modern grey tiles are a popular choice for plenty of homeowners. Thanks to their versatility, grey tiles can create a neutral backdrop or be paired with brighter colours and patterns to make a statement.

You can also layer different shades of grey to create a three-dimensional effect. Add in some interestingly shaped tiles, like hexagons, rectangles or even triangles, and you can create a striking pattern that’s not overbearing.

A small bathroom doesn’t mean an ugly one. If you plan it well enough, you can refurbish your bathroom to create the illusion of more space.

Opt for glass panels where you can, to create a barely-there look that’s perfect if you’re lacking space. A walk-in shower with a frameless glass enclosure will fit easily into an alcove, eave or other awkward space that you may have deemed unusable.
