Fresh ideas for a white or cream bathroom…


Choosing white or cream for a bathroom is still a firm favourite!

Long gone are the days when a basin, toilet and bath were available in the 70’s shades of brown, avocado and blue. White sanitaryware continues to remain as popular as ever, thanks to its fresh and stylish looks. Even when coloured sanitaryware was re-introduced in more recent years, white wins every time. After all, it’s so easy to keep spotlessly clean.

Much like a white basin and loo, white or cream bathroom furniture will never really date. And as white and most creams go with any other colours, you can choose to accessorise in contrasting, complementary or matching shades.

Get the look…

An ‘all white’ bathroom is the perfect choice for keeping it light and airy. However, too much white and it can be in danger of appearing a bit bland. By following our few simple tips, you’ll be sure to have a bathroom that oozes with style and warmth!

Deciding on a worksurface…

With so many shades of white available, even across sanitaryware and baths, it’s best to create a visual divide between your furniture and basin. The best way to do this is by choosing a worksurface that adds contrast.

A worktop in a solid surface material such as Mirostone® offers all the beauty and distinguishing looks of marble, but is warmer to the touch. And much like Corian®, any joins are virtually seamless, thanks to its unique properties.

Alternatively, a woodgrain carcass to contrast against glossy white doors can look truly fabulous. Plus it will appear to frame the doors, especially with a matching worktop.

Add decoration…

Whilst wallpaper can add colour and texture into a room, finding a vinyl wallcovering that is suitable for the steamy conditions of a bathroom or en-suite isn’t always that easy!

Instead consider tiles? It’s a great way to add pattern into your bathroom, and sure to be waterproof! Choose decoratively shaped or patterned tiles for your floor or walls. Alternatively, opt for a plain tile such as a Metro brick style and fix it in a non-conventional tessellation.

And, with so much choice of colour now available in grout finishes, including metallic effects, the ways to add pattern are varied and diverse!

The finishing touches…

They may be small, but handles can change the overall feel of a room.

A minimal and sleek handle such as our Richmond in chrome is sure to keep the overall feel of the bathroom or en-suite modern and contemporary.

Likewise, a cup handle such as Hampton is the perfect choice for a more traditional feel. It’s also available with a co-ordinating knob so ideal where door and drawer units are combined.

Equally stylish, yet alluding to a bygone era is our new Pewter knob. Its dimpled surface is characteristic of the traditional art of blacksmithing, whilst offering a 21st century finish.
