Our new Style Directory – on shelf now –  is packed with tips and ideas for every room, including ideas for revamping your bathroom style, as well as the most coveted decor contacts from our little black book. Here online, we curate the very best bits.

With the lotions and potions of daily ablutions cleverly hidden away behind clean lines and sumptuous surfaces, your bathroom style should be fresh and fragrant with tiles, tups and taps that shine. For home owners willing to be a little daring, there’s no limit to the colour combinations and geometric print tiling options to lift a bathroom’s look.

Bold colours and personalised vanities are making the bathing zone more of an extension of your living space than ever before. Sustainable style softens the traditional clinical bathroom feel with the natural textures of brushed ceramics, raw copper, wooden finished and plant life.

Take a look inside our Style Directory for all the visual inspiration you need to revamp your bathroom style with all the latest trends. In the meantime below, here are our top picks for shopping locally – our coveted bathroom contacts from our Editor’s Little Black Book of experts…
