rounds up the key themes that will take your space from sim­ply prac­ti­cal to se­ri­ously epic


think be­yond tiles when look­ing for ways to in­tro­duce pat­tern to the walls in show­er­ing ar­eas. Dec­o­ra­tive sur­faces are mak­ing big waves in shower en­clo­sures, rang­ing from com­pletely wa­ter­proof wall­pa­pers that al­low you to turn your en­clo­sure into an avant-garde art in­stal­la­tion to sur­faces, such as an­tiqued glass or dra­matic, heav­ily veined mar­bles that de­liver pat­tern on a ma­jor scale. Make no mis­take – this is about turn­ing your shower en­clo­sure into a can’t-be­missed fea­ture and in­ject­ing colour and per­son­al­ity into what is of­ten a cold and ster­ile space.
