3 easy ways to refresh your bathroom

Posted by Adam Chard in Inspiration | 1 year ago 4 min read

If you’re looking to update your bathroom, simple upgrades to your taps, shower and accessories can often make all the difference. Our friends at Ideal Standard explain how small changes can go a long, long way.

The bathroom is the perfect space to showcase design and really make an impression, but you don’t need to break the bank to create a striking end result, it’s the little changes here that can often make a real impact. For example, swapping out brassware and accessories is an easy and cost-effective way to upgrade the look of your bathroom and make it feel refreshed.

The brassware (taps, showers and accessories) collections from Ideal Standard provide a variety of design-led pieces to do just that. Each unique range offers a different style, with an array of options available from wall-mounted to basin-mounted fittings, that can be easily paired with any fixtures to enhance your space.

If you're looking to update your bathroom, a few little changes can make a big impression

Mixing it up

Continually developed over two decades, the Ceraplan tap range combines soft lines and expert German engineering for a stylish and affordable mixer option. The water-saving features of this collection also make it a great choice for those looking to reduce water usage while cutting down on bills. With both chrome and Silk Black finishes available on Ceraplan models, it’s easy to opt for a contemporary look, introduce modern, monochromatic accents, or even create a dramatic all-black appearance.

For those looking for a more rounded design, the Cerafine collection is defined by its slender shape and cylindrical accents. The range combines end-user practicality with the innovative technology you’d expect from Ideal Standard. Also available in chrome and Silk Black, you can easily integrate Cerafine into your bathroom design. And, what’s more, industry-leading technology like the FirmaFlow® ceramic disc cartridges can be found throughout all Ideal Standard mixer taps. This means the capabilities of each tap match the timeless design, so a small investment can make a big difference, over a long period of time.

Showers to shout about

Mixing and matching basins and mixer taps isn’t the only area where a change in brassware can rejuvenate a space. New showers can offer an equally striking result. Adding a new shower mixer can really help to make your bathroom “pop”, and thanks to Ideal Standard’s easy-to-clean and scratch-resistant finishes—available in Silk Black or chrome—these showers will always keep their shine.

Cutting-edge technology is at the core of these showering ranges too, with Ceratherm shower mixers featuring FirmaFlow® Therm ceramic cartridges that last for 500,000 cycles. What’s more, this technology ensures fittings will shut off automatically if the hot or cold-water supply cuts out, while Cool Body technology keeps surfaces cool to the touch for added safety.
