1 STEP UP

Level-entry showers may be popular but there are advantages to traditional stepped entry, as seen in this elegant space by Banner Day Interiors. For one, it allows you to raise the shower tray enough to solve the common issue of insufficient space between floor joists for drainage. Stepped entry also makes it far easier to contain water and keep the rest of the bathroom dry. Design by Banner Day Interiors. For similar tiles try (wall) Hoxton Bottle Green Gloss Porcelain, £46.67sq m; (floor) Carrara Honed Hexagon Marble Mosaic, £199.17sq m, all Mandarin Stone

2 WONDER WALLPAPER

Looking for an alternative to mildewprone grout lines? ‘Wall&decò’s waterproof wallpaper can be installed directly inside the shower, providing a seamless surface that’s low maintenance, easy to clean and perfect for making a bold statement,’ says Kirsten Wain, designer at West One Bathrooms. ‘The wallpaper can also be applied over existing tiles, making it great for a quick update with minimal mess or disruption.’ Wall&decò Vivido waterproof wallpaper, £171.60sq m, West One Bathrooms
