  1. Bathroom Design In Unique Spaces

    Leave a Comment

    Bathrooms are a key room to any space, whether it be commercial or residential. Keeping your bathroom up to date with modern equipment and décor makes a big impact. An impressive domestic bathroom can elevate the overall feel of the property. 

    Bold wallpaper

    Striking wallpapers are a great way to catch the eye in a bathroom. Even in a small space where you might think you should keep away from bold design and colour, being brave and opting for something dramatic can pay huge dividends. Far from making a space look smaller, a clever bold colour or design can make a big impact.

    Pairing a bold wallpaper with Versital marble, for any combination of the shower tray and panels, vanity tops or skirting, makes for a great modern bathroom design. The neutral background and traditional feel of the marble stops the room from feeling too overwhelming.

    Making the most of a small bathroom

    With this bathroom design, the client wanted to make the most of the space available. Since they had plenty of other WCs available in the house, the decision was made to remove the toilet, opting to use the space instead for a larger walk-in shower. A custom shaped shower tray from Versital was ideal to make optimum use of the space. 

    Removing the toilet also offered the opportunity to include a large bathroom cabinet from Geberit and a feature top-mounted basin from V & B. 

    Feature lighting

    Lighting is a fantastic way to add interest and open up a room. The use of spotlights and clever LED strips under the furniture highlights the features and makes it feel larger.

    Bathroom Design Starring Versital

    Versital marble was used throughout the bathroom for a range of surfaces. The waterproof, easy-to-clean nature of all our marble products makes it the ideal choice for shower trays, panels and backsplashes. The anti-bacterial protection provided by SteriTouch makes it a great choice for vanity tops as well.

  2. Staycation Luxury: Marble Bathroom

    Leave a Comment

    With holidays abroad and even domestic hotel stays unavailable for most of the last 18 months, it’s been more difficult to get a slice of luxury into your life. This has turned many people to renovations and adding touches of aspiration to their own homes.

    It is truly the moment of the staycation – and with the pandemic meaning that many people’s expenditure has dropped significantly over the last 18 months, more and more people are looking to reinvest their savings into their homes. The bathroom is always a popular room to renovate, and what says luxury quite like a marble bathroom?

    MARBLE BATHROOM DESIGNS

    We are always thrilled when our surfaces and products are used for domestic renovations as well as commercial works. Of course, without being afforded the opportunity to escape to luxurious hotels abroad, some people have decided to bring that style of design to their own homes – which is exactly what this client wanted. 

    We worked with the designer Langley Interiors to hand make bespoke surfaces for this renovation including a custom shower tray to incorporate fitted seats, shower panels, a striking vanity top with deep down stand and skirting. They come together beautifully to create the look of a hotel at home.

    HOME SPA

    A marble shower set inside a marble bathroom is the place to start. In any bathroom, the bath or shower is the centrepiece, and nothing makes a statement like a marble shower. For this design in particular, a seat and steam cabinet was incorporated which brings not only the features of a hotel but also a luxurious spa into the home.

    STAYCATION PRESTIGE

    The twin sinks echo the most prestigious destinations across the world. The bathroom can be a trickier room to modernise due to the general lack of electrics compared to other rooms in the house, but here the his-and-hers sinks bring modernity to this marble bathroom.

    Thanks to the custom shower panels and Versital used throughout, there is no grout in this bathroom, which is unsightly at the best of times. Instead, the designer opted for sleek lines across the shower tray, vanity tops and the skirting, allowing the marble bathroom to blend seamlessly together. 

    With Versital being custom made to a designers specifications in terms of size and edge details it really allows them to create a sleek, modern look with minimal joins.

    Versital’s range of cultured marble finishes comes with all the aesthetic beauty of the material, whilst also being waterproof and easy to clean, with the benefits of Steritouch anti-bacterial technology. Moreover, as it can be cut on-site by the installer with ordinary woodworking tools there may not even be a need for pre-templating, making it the perfect choice for any luxury bathroom installation.

  6. How to Create the Ultimate Bathroom Wetroom

    Leave a Comment

    Want to know how to create the ultimate bathroom wetroom but worried about costs and possible complications? Relax and take a look at our guide – it’s not as hard as you might think.

    Shower flooring – Bespoke shower trays

    Save on the mess and trouble of tiling and waterproofing a wetroom floor by choosing a custom made shower tray which covers the shower area. Versital bespoke shower trays are made to the exact shape and size of the area you require, and can even have the colour and waste position specified.

    Custom floor slabs from Versital in the matching finish can be ordered for the rest of the bathroom floor to keep the sleek wetroom look.

    Wet Room Walls – Shower Panels

    Bespoke shower tray, shower seat and panels in brown granite finish.In a wetroom it is essential that the walls are 100% waterproof. To save on messy waterproofing and fiddly tiles with unattractive grouting, choose shower panels that are made to measure to the size that you need.

    Versital offer made to measure shower panels in a huge range of different marble, granite and sparkle colour options. Simply measure the size of panels you need, choose your colour and order.

    Make sure you panel right to the ceiling if you plan on hosing down the whole bathroom when cleaning to save on water ingress.

    Unlike natural stone tiles need to be resealed regularly (quite a big job when all your walls are covered), Versital does not need to be resealed and will remain waterproof for its lifetime.

    Keep Water Contained

    It’s always a good idea to raise the lip of your bathroom threshold by 5mm. This will ensure that water is contained for longer within your bathroom in the event that the shower drain becomes blocked or runs

    Underfloor Heating

    Underfloor heating is a great option in a bathroom wetroom to dry out the wet areas quickly.

    Versital bespoke shower trays and slabs are totally compatible with underfloor heating. It has the benefit of being completely invisible with no external radiator and heating appliance to clutter up the room.

    Simple Shower Screen

    Designer look bathroom in white marble - marble panels, marble shower tray and marble vanity top.You may wish to consider adding a simple wetroom shower screen to ensure you keep other areas of the bathroom dry. There’s nothing worse than a damp toilet seat and towel for the next user!

    Although this means your bathroom won’t be 100% open plan, a simple shower screen won’t spoil the look of the shower area, as it will be completely see-through. Our clients recommend brands Aqata and Kermi.
