The Tap End designers share their tips on how to make your bathroom more personal to truly enhance your home and, in turn, your life. 

From colourful cloakrooms to sleek bespoke master en-suites, briefs and budgets differ from client to client. Everyone’s taste is different, and their bathrooms should reflect this – here is what Justine, Zoe and Daniella have to say about some of their recently completed projects:

‘If a client comes to me with a request for bright and bold, I will always start by asking what the rest of the home is like. Bright and bold is always a winner in my eyes, but only if the client loves this look and can live with it for years to come. This project was super fun, and as well as the bold tile we opted for polished copper brassware and a copper tinted mirror in the shower alcove to further add interest.’

Zoe Curtis – Designer 

‘This home is a very elegant period property in Cardiff and the clients love art, so I based the scheme on a piece of art that they said they wanted to use in this new bathroom. The tile behind the vanity area is a décor tile, but it is faded in pattern and muted in colour to better suit their personal style of understated glamour. You can introduce pattern and colour in subtle ways – on the opposite side of this room we did a traditional double-ended bath in a painted finish, but the main elements, including the floor and the painted walls, were all neutral for longevity.’

Daniella Fantini-Griffiths – Designer 

‘This project is amongst some of my favourite projects – the clients were a pleasure to work with and they really wanted to create a calm escape for their master en-suite where they can retreat to and relax after a long day with a young family. The focus was on the bath area – I created a freestanding tub between two stud walls to make it feel more enclosed. I paired this with a porcelain book-matched feature tile, which was a pastel take on turquoise/aqua to introduce colour in a calm way.’

Justine Bullock – Director and Designer
