Vanity & Countertops

Planning cabinets, shelving and storage solutions is a tricky problem in most cases. In small, irregular shaped rooms like the bathroom, it is even more so. They need to be functional and accommodate all your stuff while keeping everything easily reachable, they must fit into the available space and make the most of it and on top of it all, they need to look stylish.

Flooring

Depending on your budget and style: porcelain, ceramic, marble, and granite tiles make handsome and highly durable flooring and wall surfaces for bathrooms. Whatever your choice, always mind other key criteria for choosing your bathroom flooring: durability and slip-resistance. When selecting your tile, please consider the install pattern and the grout colour you would prefer as well, our suppliers are able to make expert recommendations. In-floor heating is also an option that you might want to consider, there’s nothing better than a warm bathroom floor!

Lighting

A bathroom can be quite impractical without adequate lighting so plan for lighting that is functional and also creates atmosphere. Plan for maximizing natural light first, whereas for artificial light it is advisable you should have least 4 watts of incandescent lighting per square foot.
