Creating the Ultimate Bathroom Sanctuary
Contemporary bathrooms have well and truly become a space for living, just as much so as our kitchen and family areas.
It’s important that essential spaces, such as the bathroom, are functional and have room to move freely, but there’s no reason why they can’t also provide busy families with a blissful experience, and a Simonds bathroom can do just that.
With several different layouts available, we can build you a bathroom that delivers the best of both worlds. A functional space in the mornings that flows with your everyday routines and a calming place that you can unwind in at the end of a busy day.

A must-have for your bathroom are shower niches and ledges. With tiled niches, a little investment goes a long way for practicality. You can avoid the hassle and fuss of bulky shower caddies that are prone to rust and difficult to clean. Accenting your niche with a pop of colour or a creative tile pattern is also a subtle and inexpensive way to let your personality shine through. For the ultimate combination, pair your luxurious shower with a freestanding bath and you’ll never want to leave your bathroom!

Extending your vanity can also pay off in big ways, as it provides everyone in the family with easy access to their everyday essentials, as well as plenty of much-needed storage space down below for hiding away clutter. To help instil a calm mood throughout your bathroom, try adding a timber finish to your vanity. This helps bring a beautiful, natural warmth to the space. A timber finish always stays on-trend, and luckily for you, many options for timber look laminate to bathroom vanities come as standard in our homes.
By adding in that little bit extra, choose from our extensive array of coloured tapware options from Alder (think matt black, warm metallics and more) to achieve that sought-after designer look and showcase your attention to detail.
