5. Location: London, UKWhy we love itThe Victorian-print blue tiles draw the eye towards the functional storage niches in this small bathroom.

4. Keep it simpleIf you have a lot going on in terms of decor in the rest of the bathroom – think coloured tiles, panelled furniture and fancy sink fixtures – then perhaps a plain sheet of no-frills glass is the best solution. Look for glass that has been finished with a special coating so dirt and limescale won’t accumulate and make it hard to keep clean. It might bump up the overall price of the screen, but it will save you lots of elbow grease.

3. It works as a frameWant some pattern on your walls but not all over? Try teaming classic subway tile with smaller areas of pattern, as shown in this design. The pale grey subway tile forms a frame around one of two recesses that were tiled with an intricate design. The pattern would have been too busy all over the walls, but the subway tile calms it down and helps showcase the beautiful design in the recesses.

Let your tiles twinkleLED, as already mentioned, is often associated with gleaming, contemporary designs, or in homes packed with high-tech tricks controllable from your phone. All that is possible in older homes, too, but LED strips are way simpler. They also look great with classic details, such as these Victorian-style blue and white tiles. Recessed shelves, or niches, just like the box shelves shown earlier, lend themselves well to a strip of light at the back. And, again, the function of the light here is simply to show off a decorative feature, rather than to provide task lighting, so ensure you build that in too.All fittings will need to have a suitable IP rating to be safe for bathroom use.
