A small room that's big on style
It’s sometimes easy to neglect the smaller rooms in the house, but refreshing a cloakroom or separate toilet can give it a new lease of life. We love this wonderful WC from customer Vicki, who has used light coloured tiles to create a bright and airy space. We spoke to Vicki to find out more about her project.
The downstairs toilet suite was about 20 years old so it was looking a bit tired, and as it was such a small room, we wanted to try and make as light as possible.
We went for a bathroom suite which had a smaller sink and a toilet with a back to the wall to hide the pipes and make it look neater. The bathroom suite and accessories all came from Victorian Plumbing.
We chose the white Tripoli tiles as we liked the large 25x50cm size which helped create the effect of a bigger room. As we have wood flooring throughout the house, we chose these wood effect Bayur porcelain tiles. We wanted a simple but stunning room, one that won’t date and is easy to keep clean.
We chose Direct Tile Warehouse simply from an internet search and then finding the tiles we liked. The service from yourselves was great as even though there was a long wait for the floor tiles as they were special order, they actually came a lot sooner than required.
We absolutely love the room, and the floor tiles are my favourite. The plumber was also very pleased with the result! We will definitely be using yourselves again when we do the ensuite bathroom later in the year.

The Tripoli tiles are no longer available but you can get a similar look from our white tile range.
