Aesthetically exuberant, full of color, and with a strong architectural imprint, Frieze aims to expand further the offer of Ex.t catalogue, that last year had already distinguished itself with a touch of poetry and emotion thanks to Nouveau collection. Both Nouveau and Frieze, albeit with different aesthetic languages, reflect the core idea of Ex.t bathroom: a modular, versatile and functional environment able to transform and renew itself continuously following the trends of contemporary living.

Frieze the new collection of washbasins and bathroom accessories designed by Marcante-Testa for Ex.t. Inspired by “entablatures” series by Roy Lichtenstein, the project is articulated through different levels of signs, materials and colours where the washbasin stars as central element of the bathroom to organize the accessory elements. The architectural approach of the designers involves the entire spatial dimension of the bathroom: the position of the sink is defined from a central wall strip, the upper and a lower part of the wall can be covered in different materials, creating space to install the mirror, shelves, furniture and towel hooks. Featuring three washbasins Frieze

There’s more to renovating your bathroom than you realise

So you have made the decision to renovate your bathroom…

It’s an exciting time with a multitude of possibilities. No doubt you’ve got at least one Pinterest board dedicated to the cause, plus a stack of magazines and mood boards ready to provide inspiration. But where do you even begin?

When it comes to renovating your bathroom, there are always the obvious requirements. You will need a new toilet, basin and bath. They’re pretty much a given, although there is a lot of flexibility in your design choices and how you choose to space them out. You may be able to move everything around to gain more space, or you might want to add or remove an item (for example, a bath or shower) to gain extra room.

These key fixtures and fittings will dictate the overall style of the room; for example, if you choose ornate and elaborate designs, you’ll likely be looking for something more vintage and rustic overall. If you pick something very sleek and modern, you’ll probably be after a minimalistic, industrial or art deco space. However, while thinking about these aspects of your bathroom is important, they’re not the only things you need to consider design-wise.

Reasons why to install a PVC Ceiling – Ceiling Cladding

I Love a uPVC ceiling in a bathroom. For me it ticks all the boxes, easy to install, levels a ceiling nice and hides a number of issues and holes in ceiling without having to plaster.

For my customers they are easy to clean and never need painting. No more mold on the ceiling.

Advantages of a plastic ceiling

The main advantages of a plastic ceiling derive from the properties of plastics, for example:

Plastic is a non-hygroscopic material and does not absorb water, the advantage of this in a bathroom is that steam from the bath or shower will not be absorbed into the ceiling. So unlike a traditional plastered ceiling which can go mouldy from steam absorption, plastic ceilings will not go mouldy.

Plastic ceilings are easy to clean using any household cleaners or a damp/dry cloth. Plastic ceilings  just need a quick wipe from time to time to keep them looking like new.

Plastic ceilings do not need painting. No more weekends spent painting and repainting bathroom ceilings with expensive paint. Plastic ceilings come in the chosen colour ready to install.

Easy to install, Plastic ceilings are easy to install with limited tools. A competent DIYer can install a plastic ceiling in a couple of hours with only a hand saw, screw drill or staple gun and a silicone gun and can be installed over an existing plastered or artexed ceiling.

Can be installed with downlights and is a great way of concealing wiring. Downlights, also known as spot lights, are popular upgrades in bathrooms and kitchens but require additional wiring runs and holes to be drilled in the ceiling. Plastic ceilings are perfect for covering over the damage to the existing ceiling caused from the downlight installation, so no need for the ceiling to re-plastered skimmed and painted.

Plastic ceilings can be installed on a wooden or metal framework.

Plastic ceiling can be used as a suspended ceiling.

Fitting A Comfort Height Toilet With Bathroom Furniture

Fitting a comfort height toilet with bathroom furniture has been a problem for me, and other bathroom designer and installers, for many years. Comfort height BTW toilets have been available to buy but have always been trouble or even unable to be installed on furniture. But not any more!

Comfort Height Toilets, also known as raise height toilets, offer a toilet pan that is height than a standard toilet. This makes going to the toilet more comfortable for taller people and for the elderly.

When installing a higher toilet this mean that the flush inlet hole is also raised, this in turn means that the cistern had to be raised, this would mean that the top of the cistern would often sit higher than the worktop height on furniture not allowing it to fit correctly. The only options would then be to cut the flush pipe to a length which was unworkable or to raise the entire run of furniture and add higher height plinths. This would then also raise the height of the basin which could then be hard to lean over making brushing of teeth and washing of faces uneasy.

But Not Anymore!

Tavistock, the makers of the popular Vortex Concealed Cistern, have been working with designers and installers from Roper Rhodes to develop a comfort height concealed cistern. This slimline dual flush concealed cistern has been specially designed and developed for use with comfort height back to wall toilets. When fitting a comfort height toilet with furniture it is difficult or impossible (depending on height of the furniture) to install a standard concealed cistern. This comfort height concealed cistern with it bottom entry inlet allow for easy installation of comfort height toilets with furniture.

Linda Barker Collection from Multipanel to debut at KBB

Multipanel, the UK’s leading brand of waterproof decorative wall panels for bathrooms, is to launch its new 2018 collections at the Kitchens, Bathrooms and Bedrooms (KBB) exhibition in Birmingham on 4-7th March.

Linda-news-article

In developing this year’s product offering, Multipanel has partnered with celebrity designer, Linda Barker, who will attend the show to launch the Linda Barker Collection for Multipanel, a range of 13 beautifully crafted waterproof panels, inspired by materials from the natural world such as stone, marble and wood.

The much-loved interior designer has been helping the British public transform their homes with stylish and imaginative ideas since her first television appearance in 1994, as a presenter on Changing Rooms. More recently, Linda, who initially trained in fine art, has won many plaudits for her commercial work, including her kitchen range for Wren Kitchens, sofas for DFS and cabins for Thomson Holidays.

“For too long,” says Linda, “the bathroom has taken a back seat in our homes. And even though the possibilities for decorating are endless, it’s often the cost and the long downtime that a bathroom space needs whilst work is carried out, that stops us in our tracks.”

“I was therefore excited to discover just how much quicker and more cost effective the whole bathroom makeover could be. Completely waterproof panels from Multipanel are easy to install, and importantly for a busy household, the downtime is kept to a minimum. What’s more, unlike traditional ceramic tiles, no grouting is required, which means a beautiful mould-free future for the renovation.”

Developed with the design loving house renovator in mind and for those looking to emulate the top bathroom trends in an affordable way at home, the Linda Barker Collection offers many stylish options for making the most of any bathroom space.

The Collection makes use of recent advances in laminate design technology. These allow much larger realistic true scale images to be printed on each panel, authentically replicating, for example, the look of real slabs of Calacatta marble, fossilised timber or patinated corten steel — all at a fraction of the cost of the real thing.

There are three colour and texture strands to the Linda Barker Collection from Multipanel:

 Elements: subtle hues combined with an incredibly solid appearance —perfect for achieving an ultra-modern industrial look.

– Wood: a weathered look exuding gentle warmth and texture.

– Stone: the authentic look and feel of real stone and marble.

A luxurious spa look is achieved with Calacatta Marble (Linda Barker Collection) feature wall and Sicilia flooring (Click Range).
