The bathroom suite is the most important aspect to get right because it lays the foundations for your perfect bathroom. Choosing your desired suite can be complex, as there are lots of things to consider, such as the style you’d like, what sizes will be appropriate, your household lifestyle requirements, and which items will fit within your budget.
At KNB we have over 30 years experience in designing and installing tailor-made bathroom suites across Nottingham. Whatever your needs or design aspirations, our guide to bathroom suite design ideas will help you to choose suitable cabinets, taps, sink, toilet, bath, and shower to complete your dream bathroom.
Choosing the Best Suite Style for you
How do you picture your dream bathroom? Is it sleek and contemporary, rustic and traditional or a blend of the two? Whatever your vision, there is a style of suite that can be designed and installed to make sure you get the bathroom you deserve.
Many homeowners opt for contemporary bathroom suites because they tend to be more versatile and easier to maintain. The clean lines and strong shapes of modern bathroom suites may be devoid of traditional charm, but it’s a perfect fit if you like the minimalist, sophisticated look.
Traditional bathroom suites embody a classic style. Typical features include classic taps, high cistern toilets, roll top baths and oak fittings. If you’re a fan of period inspired décor and love the idea of an elegant bathroom with a sense of timelessness, a traditional suite could be best for you.
Bespoke Bathroom Solutions
With our bespoke service, we can offer the best of both when it comes to designing a bathroom suite. For example, if you love the look of oak fittings, but prefer contemporary-style bath tubs and showers, we can help you to select the right features to blend effortlessly together. Choosing a bespoke design will also help you to tailor your bathroom suite so it perfectly meets your lifestyle requirements.
If you’re unsure about a suitable choice of bathroom suite, the following is a list of key considerations that should help you to narrow down your options:
- Do you want your bathroom to match the rest of your house or stand out as a bold statement?
- What suite will best match your bathroom décor?
- Know your space measurements; can you fit a grand, roll top bath in your bathroom or would it be better to choose a more compact, modern design?
- What is your budget? Choosing a more traditional design with ornate features could be more expensive.
- Household lifestyle requirements. A fully kitted out traditional bathroom suite may look beautiful, but it may be impractical for use with children.
Adding furniture to your bathroom can provide valuable storage space and will help to enhance the overall look and feel of the finished design. Whatever your bathroom size, vanity units are a great choice of furniture, and can be installed above the sink or as a combined basin and/or toilet cabinet – depending on the space you have available. Wall hung vanity units are a popular choice and come in a wide range of traditional and contemporary designs.
Bathtub & Shower
Bathtubs and showers tend to be the most prominent features in a bathroom, and of course, also one of the most useful. Available in a wide range of styles and designs to suit any lifestyle requirement, budget, or bathroom size, you’re guaranteed to find a bathtub and/or shower that perfectly brings together your dream bathroom suite.

Sinks & Taps
Choosing the right sink and taps is crucial when it comes to bathroom design. These elements set the tone for the entire bathroom, fulfilling a wide range of daily needs and forming an important part of your chosen design scheme.

Whilst it’s definitely not the most glamourous aspect of a bathroom suite, the toilet is of course one of the most important features, and there’s a variety of visually pleasing and highly functional toilet styles to choose from.
