There is a lot to the interior of a building, from the entrance to every corner of a building. In design, details are not just details, they are what make up design. You want to make sure that furniture blends with the wall, the ceiling blending with the lighting, wall paper embracing the floor finish. Many say your contractor is not your designer, that’s only if these are not designers. You can always look up to London Building Contractors for all your space planning and design consultancy and construction. While many clients are obsessed with large dining rooms, seeking enough space for the living room area, the perfect furniture and an enticing bedroom display, bathrooms and toilets are rather a last looked at section. I dare to think otherwise. Here’s why!

I remember entering an institutional library to do some research and was greatly impressed by every effort dedicated to the painting, stone works, glazing works and lightings in all it’s reading sections. Every element played a role to one’s comfort, making one to loose track of time while lost in the books they read.

During my study time, I visited its toilets and bathrooms and 30 minutes got me just staring at the toilet wall, the appliances, the lighting and how inviting these were. If it were not a public building, I would read a full novel while in those toilets or invent the deepest theories through meditation while staring at its glamour. This, I believe should be the welcome feeling every building owner should have when entering or using their bathrooms. As earlier emphasized, details are what make the design.





Paint every sample color on the walls and see how it reflects on every other appliance fixed in the bathroom. This should be the last activity in bathroom interior works. Bathroom. Balancing the colors of finishes applied in wall finishes comes with mastery. Be careful to blend each one of them to avoid a exaggeratedly dull bathroom or rather with imbalanced color-mix between its ceilings, walls and floors.

It is required that a wall finish selected should be moisture resistant and easy-to-clean but remember, the less light reflected, the less durable the finish. Here’s a variety of wall finishes from which one can choose as desired;

Semi-gloss and Gloss

When dry, these paint finishes reflect the most light, providing a bright sheen. Perfect for bathrooms and kitchens. Semi-gloss and gloss finishes prove durable and scrubbable, with high resistance to moisture. This finish easily exposes any mistakes done while building on their surfaces and poor application.


This silky, smooth paint finish retains its pearl-like sheen when dry. A satin finish reflects more light than matte and stands up well to washing. Due to its reflection effects, it does not hide any imperfections done during its application or general construction.

Matte and Flat

Matte finishes absorb light rather than reflect it. This means they will hide bumps and other little flaws in your walls rather well. This type of finishes are not very durable, but they make for rather easy touch up jobs. Matte and flat finishes cover imperfections in surface and application, making them a great choice for ceilings as well as walls in the bedroom, dining room and living room. You can easily touch up this finish. They easily hold dirt and are difficult to clean because cleaning can actually remove the finish. Best used in bathrooms that are not public and constantly maintained.

These define every plumbing appliance used to have a fully functional bathroom or toilet. For a contemporary bathroom, these boost the general appearance of the bathroom. Manufacturers continuously modify these appliances, giving a variety of options as per a desired bathroom design. Commonly used modern appliances include concealed toilets, sensor wash basins, unique bowl designs to generate a rich and inviting bathroom.

Mirrors too thou minor, add a perfect interior look to the bathroom through its shape, size, position and fixing method. These are best fixed at the center of wash basins with their sizes dictated by the wall width and space provided for the mirror.

Also, for bathroom spaces that seem too small, invisible walls are the best walls. These are usually colorless glass-like doors or enclosures used to create the bathroom section. The space allocated for the bathroom remains constant but the display of invisible walls makes them appear bigger and more elegant as shown.



Most contemporary bathroom finishes are entailed with tileworks or stone works. You need to be careful on specific tiles design for a good bathroom pattern. These dictate the patterns to be maintained on the bathroom walls. One should be careful to ensure that patterns used blend with all appliances and floor finish as per selected designs and colour. Too much of an emphasized pattern is most likely going to kill the proposed desired general look
