Metal Framed Showers

Architectural design is becoming more and more popular in everyday homes. The industrial trend is popping up in all the new restaurants, products, and home catalogues. Not for the faint hearted, metal framed shower screens offer a linear, architectural look for the bathroom. Paired with luxurious marble they give a very high-end finish, but they are equally at home with simple white metro tiles creating a more industrial feel.


Black and white will always be classy. It will continue to be in fashion long after the peachy pinks and teals have been painted over. It’s traditional for bathrooms and yet, continues to work with strictly contemporary schemes too. All the hues of black to grey and white are ever increasingly popular. Textured stone effect tiles are the most popular tile choice for us in Hertfordshire, with people aiming for understated, simplistic, spa like design for their bathrooms in 2018.


Once upon a time marble was prohibitively expensive for most of us, but it’s now possible to create the same effect with large format marble effect tiles. At its best luxury marble design can be a combination of black and white coloured marble tiles, of course getting the lighting correct is imperative as the example below shows.

Patterned Tiles

Patterned tiles have been used in bathrooms for many years but are recently making a real come back. Many patterned tiles are inspired by the extraordinary designs of the European and African Mediterranean – especially Spain,  Greece,Morocco, Algeria – and these designs are begging to be joined together to make wonderfully striking focal points of beauty. Some of the latest tile patterns echo Victorian grandeur, you’ve probably walked on similar floors in museums and galleries around the UK. Its not minimalist but it’s definitely on trend!
