1. Contemporary Bathroom Suites

Choosing a bathroom suite is often the easiest solution to execute contemporary style in your space. If you are unsure on a design, Bathroom Suites are a good start as they typically consist of a toilet, basin and bath that complement and coordinate with each other.

As a change up from classic bathrooms, suites offer a variety of wall mounted or freestanding options to suit your dimensions, taste and budget. The Chatsworth Traditional Shower Bath Suite evokes the classical style of a bygone era, yet is manufactured to today's high exacting standards.

The statement grid bath screen brings style to your space, with the vanity unit and toilet seat adding depth, thanks to their subtle yet sophisticated satin graphite finish!

Adaptable with chrome, brushed brass and matt black fittings, we recommend the Arezzo Matt Black Round Mirror and Chatsworth Thermostatic Shower for state of the art results.

Overall, the Chatsworth Traditional shower bath suite can be accessorised with a combination of traditional and modern features, proving it’s an all-round, versatile pick and the perfect foundation to inject contemporary style to your bathroom.

If you're after an ultra modern look but space is a concern, the Antonio Bath Suite is an optimal choice. Its simple yet high quality design includes a toilet, countertop basin and freestanding bath (available in 4 sizes) to suit bathrooms big and small.

Countertop basins benefit bathrooms as they take up less space than a pedestal or wall-hung basin and can be positioned at any height suitable for you!

We recommend a Bath and Sink Tap Set to fulfil a uniform and elegant look.

The hansgrohe Talis S Basin Mixer and Bath Shower Mixer are a top quality pair as their AirPower technology adds generous amounts of air to the water, creating a soft, splash-free spray. With the freedom to experiment with colour and style, the Antonio Bath suite is a top-quality option for an on trend bathroom.

2. Freestanding Baths

Freestanding baths are the centrepiece in a bathroom and make a statement thanks to their swanky yet practical structure. Freestanding baths can be placed anywhere in the room, unlike standard baths that must be installed directly to the wall and floor.

With a wide choice of styles to match the decor of your home, we recommend an eye-catching, unique design for true contemporary style and to make a lasting impression.

3. Contemporary Shower Enclosures

A contemporary bathroom design can easily be executed with the help of a shower enclosure. They’re available in quadrant, rectangle or square shapes with a choice of sliding, hinged or walk-in styles to match your dimensions and desired look!

Shower enclosures modernise a bathroom and add a feeling of sophistication due to their impressive reflective glass structure.

Particularly fluted (also known as reeded) designs have taken bathrooms by storm, as their unique grooved edges diffuse light and act as an element of privacy.

For a cutting edge, striking look, we suggest the Arezzo Shower Enclosure. With smooth, matt black sliding doors and a sleek, frameless glass structure, this enclosure guarantees functionality and elegance. It's not only spacious and easy to clean, but provides good coverage against stray splashes to prevent any water from escaping.

Bathroom panels are available in a wide selection of colours and designs. Wood, stone and quartz designs are a popular choice as they offer clean and contemporary looks without the cost (or weight) of the real thing!

With a watertight seal that gives a seamless finish, the Multipanel Linda Barker Dolce Macchiato Wall Panel adds depth and warmth to a bathroom, thanks to its neutral tones that mimic real slabs of granite.

5. Contemporary Tile Ideas

With a huge range to choose from, tiles have tonnes of potential to completely transform a space. With more of us opting for statement looks, Granley Rustic Green Gloss Wall Tiles are an ideal pick to ooze timeless beauty!

Green is an ideal colour for a bathroom as it’s easily coordinated with neutral colours and textures to remind us of the great outdoors.
