Innovative Ideas for Bathrooms / by James Lauritz

Side Mounted Taps


One of the emerging bathroom trends for 2019 is side mounted taps. Breaking with tradition this innovative way of placing tapware is as controversial as it is interesting. Usually reserved for small and confined bathrooms as a space saver, could this be the latest and greatest way of individualising your space?

Coloured Basins


Milan based Ceramica Cielo has a range of elegantly shaped, coloured basins with a contemporary colour selection The designers have created a palette of beautiful new colours not typically seen in bathrooms, mainly warm autumn shades of brown, yellow and white with a hint of grey. The collection has a minimalist vibe and features “the world’s thinnest ceramic”.


Closer to home Nood Co has a fantastic range of concrete sinks in an array of gorgeous colours that will add interest and colour to your bathroom design. Currently the sinks come in a range of shapes and the ‘Oval Pill” is shown above.

Coloured Subway Tiles

Reinvented and providing a timeless solution subway tiles in soft pastel colourways will add energy to a wet area without overwhelming it. Handmade varieties have an organic look that offers a charming break from the uniformity of porcelain styles. Glass subway tiles will bounce light around a small bathroom and make the space feel roomier.
