Different colour palettes

Did you know that sticking to a colour palette that exudes minimal contrast can make any room, including bathrooms, feel bigger?

Bathroom tiles, décor and fixtures that are all within the same or similar colour scheme enables a seamless visual flow.

Custom glasswork, including those incorporate the same, coloured tinting can truly enhance a bright, light and pleasant atmosphere. For example, custom glass shelving and cabinetry can let light in, flowing freely to add to the relaxing ambience.

There’s really no wonder why people appreciate glass as the perfect neutral to use in a colour palette.


Glass partitions

Glass dividers and partitions separate spaces subtly, but still keep bathrooms feeling open.

How does it work?

  • A glass wall/divider/partition can separate a walk-in shower from the vanity, whereas
  • Frosted glass can shield a bathroom toilet from the rest of the room.

When you install glass partitions over bricks wall dividers, you can still successfully section off some spaces, but still let the light in to avoid a dark, confined bathroom.

Glass tiles

Glass tiles can help even the smallest of bathrooms appear bigger due to their ability to reflect light.

In the shower, glass tiles are exceptionally easy to clean with a simple wipe down. Oh, and they’re waterproof for extra peace of mind, too.

Just like ceramic tiles, glass tiles come in an array of different shapes, colours and sizes so there’s guaranteed to be some to suit your style requirements.
