So the time has come to revamp that tired old bathroom, give it some style, some pizazz and finally bring it into the 21st century—but where to start? These days there exists a plethora of possibilities for the modern bathroom. The layout or design of your room might not be changeable, but the fittings and fixtures can offer personalisation and may be the final decorative and functional icing on the cake, creating a room that looks alluring, tranquil, classy or opulent. Consider the style, size, lighting, furniture and additional accoutrements, all of these elements will combine to create your desired look, and with a little careful planning, ensure your space is functional and ready to stand the test of time. If you are working within a budget, a simple update of your fittings or fixtures can offer a much-needed refresh, without the time and money required for a full-blown refurbishment.
Check out the following aesthetically pleasing and highly functional examples below, get creative, and begin your new year with an updated and trendy new bathroom.

Add to this design a freestanding ceramic basin, matching bathtub, luxury linens and handmade soaps.
If you are looking for a drastic change to your bathroom space, but do not wish to undertake a full-blown renovation or refurbishment, then consider changing a few key elements in your space. A fresh coat of dark grey or cement-textured paint in addition to a new statement basin can drastically alter the essence and style of your existing space.

Tried and tested, the mixer tap provides convenience and ease of use, especially in winter when you don’t wish to wash your hands with cold water alone. Consider installing a single spout fitting with a flick mixer tap to your bathroom for a sense of rejuvenation and especially, convenience.
