Modern Bathroom Suites

Modern bathroom design aims to make the most out of the space you have, making it a very practical option for homes – particularly if you have a small bathroom area.
The use of simple design and neutral colour choices makes for a sleek and elegant design, and the use of shapes gives your bathroom a contemporary style which looks high quality and gives a sense of luxury.

Create Extra Space in Your Bathroom

There is one similarity that all modern bathrooms have – they are designed to utilise the space you have. This is particularly important in small homes, or homes with a small bathroom and not much space.
Certain features are commonly found in modern bathroom suites, which help to reduce the amount of space taken up by units and bathroom fittings. Such features include wall mounted taps and basins and a combined bath and shower. This makes for a compact bathroom which gives an elegant and spacious feel.

Match Your New Bathroom to Your Existing Décor

A contemporary home can be complimented with the installation of modern bathroom suites. Whether you have gone for a simple and sleek design throughout your home, with the use of neutral colours, or whether you have opted for contemporary and innovative interior design with the use of bold colours and patterns – you can find modern bathroom ideas which will compliment your existing décor.
If you are unsure on your options, or need further assistance on which modern bathroom design is the most suited to your property, give us a call on 01246 550400 – we’re always here to help!

Add Value to Your Home

Not only are contemporary bathroom suites guaranteed to add a touch of elegance to your home; they will also add value. More and more people are wanting a modern looking property, and will likely add a modern touch when re-decorating. By already having a new bathroom installed before selling your property, you are likely to increase the appeal by creating a space that can already be enjoyed without the need to renovate.

What Fittings Should You opt for?

There are many options available to you when choosing fittings for your new modern bathroom suite, especially with our huge range here at Bathcenter.co.uk, which is why we’re here to help you. Here is a brief guide to common options for modern bathroom accessories and fittings:
Bath/Shower – In a large bathroom area, many homeowners decide to opt for a separate shower and bath, to add a more luxury feel. However, it is common for people with small bathrooms to combine the two to save space.

Taps – There are many styles of taps which you can opt for in a modern bathroom, but if you have the budget there is no better sense of luxury (and also hygiene) than self-closing sensor taps.

Wash Basin – As mentioned previously, many contemporary bathroom suites now try to reduce the amount of wasted space by creating a more streamlined style. One important way of doing this is by having a wall mounted basin, which also looks modern and fits with the shape of the room.

Toilet – There isn’t much variety when it comes to toilet design, but there are design features which can be incorporated to make it fit better within a modern bathroom – including auto flush and dual flush.

5 Benefits of Opting for a Modern Bathroom Design

modern minimalist bathroomBathrooms come in all shapes, sizes and styles. It’s safe to say that the bathrooms we choose are largely based on our own tastes and aesthetics. However, modern bathroom design also has plenty of benefits to it as far as practicality is concerned. It’s just one reason why opting for a modern installation, over a standard old fashioned look, may be more appealing to you. Here at Bathcenter, we’re pleased to present a wide range of fantastic bathroom suites and packages for homes up and down the UK. In this article, however, we’re going to explore why you may wish to look for a modern design over a more classical twist.

The Ultimate in Convenience

The main reason why so many people upgrade from classic or traditional suites to modern bathroom design is for practicality. For example, sensor taps, intuitive shower controls and practical bathtub design will all be very appealing to certain people.

 

 

Cutting Edge Design

Modern bathroom suites are designed with the peak of the contemporary aesthetic in mind. Our stunning modern collections are crafted with artistic trends and flavours in mind, from colour palettes through to curves, edges and even fixture design. It’s safe to say that the modern way is to make curious design choices work in a practical fashion – a clear evolution from the more standard bathroom suites of old.

A Break From The Norm

Simple, everyday bathtubs, sinks and shower units may get a little samey, which is why many people are all the more willing to mix things up. Break away from standard bathroom suites and dare to go for something a little different. Modern bathroom designs will offer you a world of striking choice where you can really let your personality shine through. We have plenty of options for you to choose from, too. Therefore, you shouldn’t ever be stuck for choice.

An Amazing Focal Point

Modern bathrooms get people talking. If you really want to help make your home stand out from the rest, a modern bathroom suite will make a huge statement. It’s a great way to leave a positive, lasting impression on guests – especially those who are looking for the ultimate in convenience, and those who have fairly modern tastes to begin with. Essentially, modern bathroom design will help to elevate your suite above all others. If that’s something you care about, take a closer look at what we have on offer!

Reasons to Opt for a Traditional Bathroom Suite in Your Home

Burlington Traditional Bathroom Suite

Your bathroom is a space in your home where you likely spend a lot of time. You probably spend more time in there than you imagine! Therefore, it is a space which is worth decorating and designing well. You may already be looking at refitting a bathroom suite completely, or you may be thinking about replacing one or two units in the coming months. In either case, we feel there are plenty of great reasons why you should think about having a traditional bathroom suite installed.

Here at Bathcenter, we’re pleased to be able to help homes and families across our region find that perfect look. We offer a wide variety of standalone fixtures and fittings and are also happy to help you with full bathroom suite installations, too. Alongside our contemporary collection, we are particularly proud of our traditional suites. But what is it about these suites which make them so popular?

Create That Homely Feel

One of the main reasons why people choose traditional style over modern fixtures is the fact that these suites can help you feel more ‘at home’. Our suites, fitted out with sink units, showers, bathtubs, toilet units and more besides, are all inspired by years and years of cosy, comforting bathroom style. By traditional, we don’t mean we expect you to go all the way back to the Victorian era!

Our traditional bathroom suites by Burlington are inspired by the bathrooms we grew up with. Simple, practical looks, rounded edges and humble fittings. What’s more, we’ve made sure to blend the old with the new. With a traditional suite, you get the look and feel of an old-time bathroom, but all the functionality and efficiency of modern models.

Stand the Test of Time

There is an argument that ‘contemporary’ styles change every few years. While we’re proud of our modern suites, we feel that the traditional look is one which is never going to go away. While plenty of people will be comfortable opting for modern design choices as they appeal to them, anyone looking for long-lasting, comforting aesthetics will do well to look to the past.

Think about the homes you visit which still have traditional units installed. They don’t ever seem to have dated a day! That’s because there’s always been a clear choice between traditional and contemporary. Contemporary bathrooms are sleek, angular and futuristic. They’re daring in design, while practical at the same time.

Traditional bathroom suite designs are ‘safer’ in terms of looks, relying instead on what already works well. Unless you choose to put up dated wallpaper and carpeting alongside, a traditional suite is going to look as good in ten years as it does today. That is, of course, providing you look after it!

There’s No Learning Curve

Plenty of people are happy to buy contemporary bathroom suites regardless of the changes involved. In fact, most people who buy modern suites are doing so because they like the idea of changing things up! Some modern suites have stylised taps, shower systems and even toilet flushes. For some people, moving from a simple bathroom to an ultra-modern suite can be a big leap indeed.

With a traditional bathroom suite, you get all the fittings you’re used to. While familiar, they still stand out in impeccable quality.  A traditional suite is a great choice for anyone looking for creature comforts in their new bathroom design, particularly as these models are inspired by the bathrooms we’ve come to know and love over the years.

The Choice is Yours!

Yes! It’s all down to you. You might be persuaded to consider a traditional bathroom suite if you’re looking mainly to upgrade or freshen your existing space. If the idea of modernising absolutely everything seems a bit too drastic, you don’t have to go for a contemporary suite. Choose a traditional suite which harks back to years gone by, and which will continue to look and feel wonderful after years of careful use and enjoyment.

If you’re considering installing a new bathroom suite, do take a look at our catalogue of ideas today, our Burlington range covers everything you could ever need.  Alternatively, please call our team at Bathcenter on 01246 550400, and we will be happy to help you find that perfect look.

Making Monochrome Bathrooms Work for You

Making Monochrome Work for You

With the world still hooked on black and white bathrooms, there’s no better time to make the monochrome trend your own.

This neutral colour palette adds character to stark and sterile spaces, giving you an end result that’s sophisticated and bespoke. It isn’t dictated by size or budget, which is why it works so well in en-suites and wet rooms.

Our pick of monochrome products can be mixed and matched to help you inject little touches of luxury into your space. Here’s how you can use them to bring personality to your home.

All brought to us by Frontline Bathrooms.

 

Add interest to all-white areas

The great thing about monochrome is it never goes out of date or style. This timeless colour combo means creating a bold and dynamic look can be achieved by just being creative with everyday items.

Add interest to enclosures, toilets and vanities with cool brassware. Quirky black accessories like basin taps, shower packs and black flush plates are an eye-catching way to break up all-white areas.

Shape and mould your space

When large bathrooms start to feel sparse, adding black accessories will conceal excess space and draw attention to different parts of the room. Contrasting enclosures like the Black L-Shaped Walk-In, slate shower trays and statement radiators all bring structure to bare walls and corners.

On the other hand, you can create the illusion of space with white tiles in light-reflective materials like glazed ceramic and porcelain. The golden rule to remember is: white reflects, black absorbs.

 

Create a centre stage washing area

Monochrome doesn’t have to mean chequered floors. If you’re looking for something different, a black and white freestanding bath creates a luxury washing space worthy of a boutique hotel.

Matt black fixtures against white baths create a striking juxtaposition. Our freestanding Vibe Tap against our Graphite Bath shows how you can layer the colours for all-out drama.

Don’t forget, monochrome style also doesn’t have to mean black and white. Soften this trend to your taste with dark grey hues and cosy creams.

All these items are supplied to us via Frontline Bathrooms, please see our complete Frontline Range.

Why choose bathroom wetwall panelling

Why choose bathroom wetwall panelling

 

Whether you opt for Wetwall, Nuance or Mermaid, Bathroom wall panelling is becoming more and more popular. Primarily used in shower enclosures as the panels are waterproof and designed to cope with everyday showering.

Grout free, the ease of maintenance with all our bathroom wall panels is undoubtedly one of the main reasons why (for instance) Nuance wall panelling is becoming a must have product in any new or renovated bathroom.

Bathroom wall panelling can be used all around your bathroom or also with tiles, In fact in the main, we supply our panels to go with tiles, Gone are the days where you would choose a border tile to break up the colour scheme in your bathroom, now you can choose a tile to go with a contrasting shower panel colour, With so many decors to choose from you can colour co-ordinate your bathroom to come to fruition.

Pricing is another obvious topic of conversation and while you can obviously pick up cheaper tiles than most Wetwall, Nuance or Mermaid  panels I always inform our customers that compared to an averagely priced tile you may still pay a little more on the panels (per square meter area) However that cost is more than covered by the amount you will save on labour as the panels are fitted in less than half the time it would take a tiler to tile the same area.

In conclusion, bathroom wall panelling is practically maintenance free, waterproof, high quality, easy to fit and without doubt looks great.

How to clean bathroom taps and brassware.

How to clean bathroom taps, showers and brassware ie

Brass, Chrome, Aluminium, and Stainless Steel fittings

We recommend:

Clean all chrome surfaces immediately after use to stop a build-up of dirt
and harmful limescale on your product.

Clean with a warm weak neutral washing up solution, rinse immediately
with clean water and dry with a clean soft cloth.

The occasional use of a mild non abrasive bathroom limescale remover
can be used, ensure to rinse off immediately with plenty of clean cold
water. To remove a build-up of lime scale, we recommend to use a white
vinegar solution.

You should not…

Use products that contain abrasive chemicals to clean your
brassware. This may cause the materials to corrode which inevitably will
void the warranty on the product.

If you would like further advise on the recommended cleaning products to use, please contact our customer service team on 01246 550199.

 

It should also be mentioned that purchasing a higher quality tap will vastly reduce the likely hood of corrosion or developing a fault, we recommend the Flova brassware range as they include a 10 YEAR manufacturers warranty.

 

Wetwall better than tiles?

Is wetwall better than tiles?  Its a question we get asked on a regular basis.

Wet wall has become more and more popular in the last few years, and  installing wet wall as an alternative to tiles can often be the ideal and favourable option.

Mermaid, Wetwall and Nuance, panels are fully waterproof and can be used around baths, showers and basins.

They come in variety of sizes and can be cut to your specific needs, are easy to install and do not need to be grouted, making them easy to maintain and keep looking as good as new.

Wetwall panels are made from various wooden materials usually either MDF or Plywood treated to be completely waterproof usually coming in sizes such as 600mm tongue and groove, 900mm, 1000mm and 1200mm but can be cut to any size and be as tall as your bathroom requires.

WetWall

Wet wall provides a modern seamless finish that is easy to keep clean due to the lack of grouting required, making them more hygienic and stain resistant.

Their versatility means they are suitable for use in different areas of your bathroom, such as the shower enclosure, behind the sink or around the bath.

You can install panels throughout your entire bathroom or just specific sections. You can even panel your ceiling, ideal in wet rooms or particularly splashy households.

Tiles

Tiles, on the other hand, may be a more suitable choice if your bathroom suite has a traditional or period design.

They can require more regular maintenance than shower walls, as grout can harbour mildew and mould.

That said, wet wall panels are much easier and cheaper to replace than tiles, as well as being less effort and time consuming to install.

This makes installing wet wall panels a great way to update and change the entire look of your bathroom suite.

 

The answer can often come down to personal choice, the rest of the look of your suite and the amount of money and effort you are willing to put into decorating your bathroom, there is no real right or wrong answer. Wet wall or tiles, the choice is yours.
