Sometimes, all you need to make a big impact is a small change. Changing over your tapware can turn a basic bathroom design into something chic and contemporary. At Wholesale Domestic Bathrooms, we have a wide range of modern and traditional styled taps for you to choose from. Our favourite look of the moment has to be the ultra-modern waterfall style, check out our best-selling Cubix Waterfall Basin Tap.

Minimal Tiles

When it comes to bathroom renovation, tiles can work out to be one of the biggest expenses, between installation costs and the price of the tiles themselves.

Keep costs down by being strategic with where you place your tiles. You don’t have to tile over your full bathroom. Stick to tiling in only the necessary areas, like behind the bath and above the basin, to save a bundle. 

To elevate the look, you could use bold, patterned tiles to create a feature wall, while painting the rest of the room in a block colour. Another chic option is to tile the walls halfway and paint the remaining walls in a complementary shade.

Lower Cost Alternatives

At Wholesale Domestic Bathrooms, style and cost-effectiveness can go hand-in-hand. Take inspiration from the latest interiors trends and achieve a fashionable look, without the eye-watering price tag.

Cast-iron freestanding baths are what vintage bathroom dreams are made of. However, the price can often be closer to a nightmare. An acrylic freestanding bath can be a good compromise. Opt for one in a traditional design, like our budget-friendly Windsor Double Ended Bath, to achieve a classic look for a reasonable price.

Do you desire luxurious marble tiles? Opt for marble-effect wall panels instead. This popular option gives the Pinterest-worthy look of marble, while also being purse-friendly and highly functional.
