You will also find a world of information and insider tips available on our blog, Talking Tiles that will help you throughout the design and selection process. Our handpicked guides below provide an excellent starting point for your design journey:

Selecting Bathroom Finishes

Although it may be difficult to visit showrooms right now, you can still view all of your favourite finishes and materials online if you are considering ordering custom made cabinetry for your bathroom renovation. Sift through brand websites and social media accounts where you can view your top selections in situ which will help you get a realistic view of not only how these options will look once installed but also what colours and materials could potentially pair up well with your selections. These galleries will assist in effectively narrowing down your options to make the selection process that much simpler, allowing you to include this information in your design brief for your design professional who will confirm all of your selections and offer their best advice. 

Brands such as Caesarstone, Polytec and Laminex all include a comprehensive catalogue and gallery of their products online, while also allowing you to order samples of each.

Selecting Bathroom Fittings

Once again, most bathroomware manufacturers offer extensive online catalogues where you can view a range of different items including showerheads, tapware, ready-made vanity units, medicine cabinets and other accessories to complete your bathroom renovation. Although it is often preferable to view and test these items out in a showroom, you can at least prepare a shortlist of selections which can then be passed on to your Designer or Builder as part of your design brief who will in turn be able to confirm that your selections are suitable for the space’s requirements prior to making any purchases. Once it is safe to do so, you can then visit your local bathroomware showrooms to view your top choices and make your purchases.
