This month we are looking at ‘The Stylish’ bathroom, which can be viewed in our Leeds showroom. This is the latest addition to our Leeds collection and is a great example of how to maximise space in a small room. This ultra-slick wetroom is paired with dark tiles & glassware to really blend the furniture & pottery. As a result, this is an excellent example of how a small space can be transformed into a luxurious wetroom. The VitrA ‘Elegant’ vanity unit with the side mounted Grohe tap adds flair and character to the room, whilst doubling up as a great storage solution.
Furthermore, with trusted brands such as Grohe and VitrA you can renovate your bathroom in confidence and within budget at just £3,505.00 inc. VAT (supply only).
This feature bathroom is classed as a wetroom. A wetroom is achieved by installing a tray to sit underneath tiles; this provides a continuous and minimal look to the room. If space is an issue try to incorporate a ledge which raises the wetroom tray and restricts the water flow; this will achieve a wetroom look but in a practical way. If you haven’t got enough space for the waste underneath the wetroom tray try raising the floor artificially; then add the wetroom tray and tile so that you step up into the shower area.

Anthracite is definitely in this year and we believe it is going to be an ongoing trend. From black brassware to anthracite radiators, vanity units and even smoked glass panels. Therefore, in this Leeds setting we have used extremely contrasting colours of dark ‘coal’ tiles, smoked glass wetroom panel, an anthracite towel rail and vanity unit with the gloss white washbasin and back to wall WC to contrast against the dark setting creating an ultra-contemporary look.
Above all, we are showcasing feature tiles. The tiles used, ‘Vento’ are from the Pietra collection. By using a smaller decorative tile (8.5x35cm) we were able to tile this in a herringbone effect to give the bathroom an added focal point. The remainder of the room contains tiles from the same range, however, a larger format of 40x80cm. As the ‘Vento’ is a porcelain tile it can be used on walls and floors to create a continuous look and is also available in a variety of colours including Sand, Earth, Grey and Coal. Due to the small space, we had using the same tile on the floor and wall would have caused the room to look smaller, therefore, to give the wetroom a focal point with added texture the decorative tile was incorporated.
