At AJ Walker Ltd, we know a thing or two about creating a beautiful bathroom. Normally we are led by the client’s own ideas, but if needed, we can draw upon our experience of what works and what doesn’t!
The bigger the tile the better! Not only does it add a sense of luxury, it can also make the bathroom feel much bigger. Large format tiles used to be the preserve of expensive manufacturers such as Porcelanosa. But now, many tile manufacturers are creating large tiles at a reasonable cost. The advantage of a bigger tile is less grout lines. And, as we all know, dirty or discoloured grout can be one of the very first things than spoil a bathroom.
Make sure you have plenty of lighting. An illuminated and heated bathroom mirror helps create some background lighting while you’re taking a bath, for example. And when you need maximum light, why not specify some IP rated (steam and splash resistant) LED spotlights in the ceiling.
No one likes standing on freezing cold tiles first thing in the morning. We can install electric underfloor heating that can be timed to warm your bathroom floor so it’s nice and cosy in the mornings.
Sanitaryware and fittings
Again, this can be an opportunity to blow the budget, but shop around and you’ll find many stylish, cheaper manufacturers who supply quality, sleek basins, baths and toilets. If you’re feeling flush (excuse the pun) why not take a look at Villeroy & Boch – they’ve been producing fine sanitaryware since 1748.
One area where we do recommend a quality choice is for your bathroom taps and fittings. Some cheaper, unbranded items can be difficult to source spare parts for. They can also tarnish fairly quickly.
