New printing processes can create highly realistic interpretations of natural stone, marble and wood on ceramic tiles, so you can save hundreds on the cost of tiling of your bathroom without sacrificing the overall look. Using mosaic tiling is also a great option: it’s on trend, but also cost effective, as you don’t need to use much of it. Cut sheets in half or use fine strips between larger plain tiles to create vertical features behind a basin or horizontally around a bath.
It’s also worth raising the bathroom door threshold by about 5mm from the floor in case the room fills with water (if someone covers the shower drain with a towel, for example). This will keep the water contained.
Making over a busy family bathroom? A glass bath shower screen is a smart and practical choice. Designed to fix to the wall and over your bath, it’s easier to clean than a shower curtain, and will provide more of a sense of light and space, even the smallest room.
If you do plan to change your layout, measure your bathroom carefully. Note the position of doors windows and any pipes. It might help to draw an outline on graph paper, or use an online design tool.
