Avoid colourful sanitary wares. Trends change all the time and white is the safest bet. You can always add colour by choosing the right tiles or painting a wall (but avoid wallpapering). Another trend to avoid would be carpeted or wood flooring as it's much less sanitary than tiles or vinyl. As for tiling, avoid mosaics, a lot of tiles means a lot of grout that needs to be cleaned and maintained and glossy floor tiles is just a slip hazard and downright dangerous.

To be honest it’s horses for courses. One man hate is another’s love of a bathroom. Some like classic furniture as it’s suits them and their property. The modern theme in a modern house, so it’s best to treat job by job. The classic bathroom is just that a classic bathroom so it does not really change other than the style, Victorian, ect. Modern had more variety and thus more issues come to the time to fit.

Cheap cladding!!! Bathroom cladding and panels are all the rage at the moment but there is a big rage of types and prices. the chaps plastic pvc cladding that comes in the 25cm wide strips is generally cheap and nasty and you can put your finger through it. on the plus side it is very quick and easy to fit. Then the large 8x4 sheet panels are more expensive but are more hard wearing and will last longer if installed properly, but at the same time if its a poky little bathroom it can be hard to work with!

when choosing your bathroom suite and furniture please make sure your choices have longevity and wont be dated and out of favour quicker than your shower gel . It is important to not only choose items that you like but the choice of fitting and furniture are fit for purpose . Big isn't allways better in a small space and bling and sparkle may date and become stale in no time . A good rule is ask yourself will it still meet our needs in 5 years and will it still be pleasing to the eye . Take time to select cheap doesn't mean its a bargain and expensive doesn't mean it suitable .

We like to think, when designing your bathroom - it shows off your personality and we like that everybody is different. It makes every bathroom installation different. We recommend you choose a colour and theme that makes you happy and then sit back and allow us to turn your smallest room into your best asset.

There isn’t anything that should be avoided, there will only be things that can’t be done in certain situations. Something that someone hates will be something that someone else loves. Choose colours and a theme that make you happy and that you like it’s your bathroom not anybody else’s. H

For me following trends can easily become out of date or you can soon change your taste and style to the next trend that come out. I visited alot of tile suppliers and designs are always changing just like trends so it wont be the trend forever. Go with white suite with natural colours will never go out of date, you can then accessorise the bathroom to meet your tastes.

Following other people's tastes. It is your bathroom, and it is best to choose something you are most happy with. Always take advice on the best use of materials for a particular budget, but always choose upon what you like the most. The more neutral colours age much better than certain coloured suites/tiles. It is a good option to consider how long you are planning on remaining at your home too to help choose the suite and colours.

Avoid fashionable suites and tiles, as they will date very quickly. A white suite is neutral, clean and smart looking, with a nice wall finish will always look timeless. Avoid black and dark colours in wet areas, particularly if you live in an area with hard water/limescale. Chrome over brass

Would advise to stay away from coloured suits as you have to build and colour the room always thinking of the suite . a good white or plain suite is always elegant and works with nearly every colour. also you can completely change the look of a suite just with the accessories you choose and the tiles / paint used .

It’s always best to stay clear of bold colours For the toilets and basins etc . For example the salmon pink units in the 70s pick a bathroom where it’s plain but stylish which will work with accessories to make the room into this years must have design but once that’s faded out you can then change the the room again with accessories to the next must have look

It’s always best to avoid trends as they come and go in fashion all the time like the old coloured bathroom suites of the 70s. The best option is to use accessory’s to make an statement or trend as they can be swapped easily where as if you follow current trends of bold colour tiles it will require major work to. Change it again in the future
