Gee Street, LondonContemporary Bathroom, London
With the request of pastel colours which is evident on the floor tiles, copper fittings and hexagonal tiles, this gorgeous bathroom has been updated into a stylish, contemporary space. A solid surface bath and basin gives a modern feel and mirrored panelled cabinets provides confined storage which visually expands the space. A bespoke shower screen meets the ceiling, maintaining clean lines throughout.
What Houzz contributors are saying:
Reflect a littleCreate the illusion of space by using mirrors in your bathroom. In this cool washspace, the designers have lined the wall behind the basin with mirrored tiles. The reflective surfaces make the room appear larger and lighter, and give the geometric floor tiles double the impact.Tell us…How have you maximised the space in your small bathroom?

Try some tilesThe wall behind this basin is covered in mirrored tiles. Not only do they provide a handy reflection, they give the compact area a feeling of space. The basin looks almost space-age, as it appears to float in mid-air.For practicality, mirrored tiles like these are a good option, as they’re easier to replace individually if one cracks.Find bathroom designers and fitters in your area
Which materials are popular right now?“Trends vary in different areas of the UK. Chrome still accounts for 85-90% of sales, but gold, brass, nickel and black chrome in polished and brushed finishes are becoming more regular sales,” Lauren says. Inga adds that she’s seeing more colour-coated finishes of late, not only black but also yellow, pink and white, as well as various metals. “I also think people are moving away from smaller heads that you can tilt,” she says. “Size matters when it comes to the experience, and there’s a big trend for rainwater heads.”
Swap brasswareTaps and other brassware in stainless steel or chrome could never be said to look warm. In this bathroom, on-trend copper is used instead for bath, shower and basin, providing the opposite note, and the hexagonal floor tiles pick up the shade.Copper’s not the only option if you want to ring the changes with brassware. Pinkish rose gold is an on-trend choice, too.
