Gee Street, 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:
6. Reflect a littleCreate the illusion of space by using mirrors in your bathroom. In this cool wash space, 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 USHow 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.
Which materials are popular right now?“Trends vary in different areas of the UK. Chrome still accounts for 85 to 90 per cent of sales, but gold, brass, nickel and black chrome in polished and brushed finishes are becoming more regular sales,” Beharrell says. Kopala 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.”Bathroom accessory finishes you may not know of
3. CopperCopper is unmistakable and bold. It gives the bathroom a rich feeling, especially when mixed with a subtler material, such as marble on a countertop. Advantages: Copper has natural antibacterial properties. It’s fairly easy to find and also has the ability to ‘heal’ itself. Over a short period of time, a scratch in copper will become darker and eventually blend with the patina.Disadvantages: A shiny copper finish might require a little more maintenance than brushed nickel, oil-rubbed bronze and chrome, but if you let it age naturally, copper will develop a beautiful patina. It’s harder to match accessories and other fixtures to copper, and it’s not as durable as other finishes.Styles it works with: Farmhouse and, of course, minimalist.How to perfectly plan your bathroom project
