Friday 5 May 2017, Written by Laura Tompkins

There are many factors to consider when updating your bathroom, from choosing a certain style as well as factoring in functionality, it could be a daunting process. So to make it a little easier, we’ve put together this guide to help you create the best bathroom for your home.

Family Bathrooms

First up is the family bathroom, with high traffic and frequent use it’s important to select the right fixtures, fittings and tiles for this space. If your family bathroom is in need of updating, choosing simple and hardwearing sanitary ware will pay off and last for years to come and tiles can really help to transform the space.

But functionality doesn’t have to be boring, try transforming your bathroom floor with Odyssey Grande floor tiles. They can be used on wet floors and walls, ideal for bathrooms and a brilliant way to add some style to a simple suite as pictured below.

For something more traditional try Victorian Floor Tiles, although they are often associated with hallways and paths, their durable properties make them ideal for bathrooms too. For a splash of colour look no further than the Eltham pattern pictured below.

For ultra-contemporary yet family friendly, we love Montblanc Blue from the Tileworks collection. The deep blue shade is perfect for bathrooms and contrasts beautifully with white sanitary ware.

En Suites

En suites often have shower enclosures and it is important to install tiles which are suitable and safe for bare feet on wet floors. For the walls, team together large format wall tiles with a statement mosaic like Agra as pictured below.

If it’s just a simple splashback you are looking for, Try White Lady mosaics. Their iridescent reflective qualities make them ideal for small spaces, allowing light to reflect around the room.

The downstairs WC

The littlest room is sometimes overlooked when updating your home, but it’s a great place to go bold and add a splash of colour! These Winchester Topkapi tiles do just that. Use them as strip to create a border or go for the full effect for something a bit different.

Want a decorative touch but, more understated? Opt for plain white field tiles with a decorative drop in. These nautical patterned tiles from the Winchester Tile Company are perfectly at home in the downstairs WC or any sized bathroom, adding a touch of timeless class.
