Traditional or Modern style bathroom furniture? An important choice...

All the furniture items fall in to one of two categories - either Modern or Traditional style. It is very important to decide from the offset which of these looks you are going for, as mixing and matching from both styles can produce unsightly results.

If it's Modern style bathroom furniture you're after, there are a wide range of new additions available which can add an air of cool sophistication to any home. Often in a bold, cubic style, these stunning designer furniture items tend to boats stark lines and smooth finishes, providing a cutting edge look for your home. Ranges such as the Linea or Venice sets are fine examples.

On the other hand, a timeless, classical and rustic look can be just as effective. By choosing a Traditional style of furniture you can set your bathroom in a style which will look great for years to come, providing a vintage chic look that will make your bathroom the talk of the town. The York or Paris set (pictured) are fine examples of this type.

Combine stunning styles with simple storage to de-clutter your bathroom

Let's face it, there's no point in having beautiful bathroom items if they can't be seen for clutter and mess.

In today's modern homes, space is increasingly at a premium - this is especially the case in many modern apartments and in guest or ensuite bathrooms. In situations like this, it is advisable to make the most of every inch of space you can. It is easy for spaces like these to become cluttered, which can seriously detract from the look of your bathroom - this is especially the case in busy family homes.

You can easily de-clutter your bathroom by installing items such as cabinets, vanity units or wall hung units - many of which incorporate practical storage solutions such as soft close drawers or cupboards. These make it easy to hide away the day to day bathroom items which can quickly make any bathroom look untidy.

With the latest and smoothest fixtures and fittings our bathroom furniture is available in many shapes and sizes, and is the ideal solution for storing all your bathroom items.

There are many different types of bathroom furniture available today - it is important to decide which pieces of furniture you need. In order to help with this, we've assembled a list of the more common types of furniture below...

Free Standing Furniture

Freestanding furniture provides increase flexibility and customisation for any bathroom

Free standing furniture comprises of any units which stand vertically up from the ground, as the name suggests. This incorporates a wide range of vanity units, cupboards and WC units, all of which will likely include room for storage.

This type of furniture is highly popular due to it's ease of installation - many of these items are provided fully assembled, saving you the nightmare of having to build each item yourself. Freestanding furniture can also offer much more flexibility in terms of where you place your items, pipework permitting. This allows you to locate your furniture in a way that suits your own unique tastes, greatly enhancing the overall look and appeal of your bathroom.

Many of these items can also easily be moved, should you feel the need to change the layout of your room at any time. This also makes cleaning behind, under or around the units much easier.

Wall Hung or Wall Mounted Furniture

Perfect for smaller bathrooms, guest rooms or ensuites, wall hung furniture provides the illusion of added space and room

Perfect for smaller bathrooms, guest rooms or ensuites, wall hung furniture provides the illusion of added space and room. By having furniture items attached to the walls rather than upstanding from the floor, you free up much needed floor space.

When used properly this can greatly increase the feeling of depth and space created by a bathroom, making it feel much less cluttered and claustrophobic. It is much easier for you or your guests to relax and unwind in a bathroom that does not make them feel boxed in.

Despite taking up less room, today's wall hung or wall mounted bathroom furniture offers ample storage space, and is easy to install thanks to its intelligent design. There are many advantages to this type of furniture, making it among our most popular.

Modular Bathroom Furniture

Modular furniture is a great option if you’re working with much smaller bathroom spaces - it allows you to choose a combination of furniture to suit you. It is very popular nowadays thanks to its contemporary yet timeless look.

Modular furniture is the type which comes in individual units or components which are then put together to create larger furniture sets. You can select from a wide range of plinths, worktops and units, combining them to produce a furniture unit that is tailored towards your specific needs.

Furniture items such as our Venice furniture range allow you to easily add or remove pieces based on what you do or don't need. This allows you to fill your available space with the furniture you want, rather than being forced to make room for large or bulky furniture sets featuring things you don't really need.

Cloakroom Furniture
These excellent units bring the various items together in to one complete set, allowing you much-needed room for your other bathroom items

As well as the modular furniture described above, we also offer a range of stylish and great value Cloakroom Furniture. This is ideal for ensuites, guest bathrooms or any smaller space where room is at a premium.
