DISCOVER UNDER FLOOR HEATING
No one likes a cold tile early in the morning!
There are many different ways to heat a home/ bathroom. A popular choice is to use under floor heating. While the technology has changed over the years, the concept is still the same; heating an area at a modest temperature (20-24°C / 69-76°F) produces the most comfortable and efficient form of heating possible.
Keeping with the minimalist design without heaters attached to your tiles, underfloor heating keeps your family warm and also helps keep that nasty build up of fungus away!

WHO SAID BIGGER ISN’T BETTER?!
Tiles come in hundreds of different sizes. We find many of our clients choose bigger tiles over smaller tiles. Here are some of the reasons why: Less grout lines and a larger tile surface gives a greater sense of space. Larger tiles often come with the same if not cheaper price tag than smaller tiles such as mosaics, therefore you get more bang for your purchasing buck! Along with getting more bang for your buck, you can get more creative with your tile choice.
MAKE YOUR BATHROOM UNIQUE
Want to create a unique space without spending a fortune on feature wall tiles? Easy! Keep it simple by wrapping the floor tile up one wall, all the way up to the ceiling. This trick creates continuity throughout the bathroom and allows the room to flow from the floor up. Especially when working with whites and greys, this trick will give the wow factor without breaking the budget.
LOOKING FOR A MODERN SOLUTION AND RUNNING OUT OF SPACE?!
Saving space is one of the most common challenges we face when renovating a bathroom. By building a false wall and concealing the cistern we create the illusion of space by mounting the toilet pan to the wall. Keeping the toilet off the floor really helps open the space and we’ve found a way to do it for a fraction of the cost! Building a false wall also creates a hob behind the toilet which enables more opportunity to tailor your! bathroom design.
GOOD BYE UGLY PLASTIC DRAIN HOLES!!
Tile insert drain covers are the new innovation for concealing those grimey plastic waste holes in your floor! This clever invention enables water to move around the waste and flow through to your floor trap whist keeping out anything big that may clog up your drains. Your floor tile is cut into a 100mm x 100mm square and simply sits inside the waste. The waste is fully removable to enable access through to your floor trap. This waste is ideal for giving your bathroom that modern and simplistic look.
