    We used Pigeon in our bathroom too and it really is a gorgeous colour! Very happy with the result... Wish we’d been braver and used it on more walls! Having said that, we tried it in our bedroom first and it looked quite cold in there, so would definitely recommend testing first!

    Many thanks Sims Hilditch for sharing the colour name and also how you have used it in your bathroom Nisha. I would never have guessed it as pigeon - I honestly thought it was a green... which goes to show just how different colours can look in different places and different lights, as you both have said...

    Hi Alecia, these are indeed hidden cabinets which were custom made for our client. Glad you like them and thank you for your interest in our project.

    there's a visible break in the mirror just above the basin height. I think it would be more practical to start the mirror above that only. it does however depend on the design of basin and tap as well. some don't splash much

    Bring it back to the bathroomGreen is a colour to be used cautiously on bathroom walls. Why? Choose a darkish shade and it will cast a hint of that colour onto your face when you’re looking in a mirror (not the most flattering tone). So stick to a shade that’s at the palest end of the sludgy spectrum, go for a large, space-enhancing mirror, and ensure lighting – both natural and artificial – is complementary and practical without being harsh and in-your-face functional.

    Attach to the mirrorIf you’d like a wider mirror but still need lights in close proximity to the sink, it’s possible to combine the two. Here, the designers have fitted wall lights to the mirror/cabinet to keep the symmetry while still maximising the glass. The shades keep the light soft, but the mirror will provide a reflection to amplify the illumination in the space.

    Order materials in advanceBy now you should be a dab hand at making lists, so write down every product you’ll need, then, once it’s all decided, order everything, even if you only need it right at the end. Items such as designer tiles, specialist materials and made-to-order products can have a longer lead time than you might expect. All sorts of annoying things could delay a delivery that are totally out of your control, particularly when a shipment is coming from abroad. Many factories in Europe close in August, for example, adding up to six weeks to a standard lead time, while suppliers in Asia can be affected by holidays and festivals that aren’t on our radar. Note the bespoke mirror in this bathroom. The taps and lights have been mounted directly onto the mirror, so the exact position would have needed to be confirmed before it was ordered, so the supplier knew where to cut the holes. You can get a plain mirror quite quickly, but a bespoke one with holes or bevelled edges can take a while, and since the taps and lights couldn’t be installed until the mirror was in place, a delay in ordering could delay the whole project.

    Try out a dimmer switchTry fitting a dimmer switch to your main task light, as this will let your eyes adjust first thing in the morning and help you wind down in the evening. Dimmers are available for halogen and LED lights, so you can control the intensity of all your bulbs.TELL US…How have you lit your bathroom? Share your advice and photos in the Comments below.

    Perch on a plinthIf your storage needs are sorted (tick), your choice of vanity unit doesn’t need to revolve around umpteen cupboards and drawers. Instead, you can pick out a striking piece that relies more on aesthetics than humdrum functionality. Here, a pair of modern, sculptural basins sit on a thick, wall-hung plinth and the result is a light and airy visual feast. The shelf below is perfect for stashing fresh towels.
