Simon Boocock, CRL Stone MD, gives his ‘how-to’ on incorporating textured surfaces

Simon Boocock, managing director at CRL Stone, talks to kb-network about achieving the perfect

textured surface within your interior scheme… 

As the bathroom has become a space to retreat to for some time away from today’s hectic lifestyles, so the fixtures and fittings chosen for this space have shifted too. On the rise: textured surfaces. 

From countertops and surfaces, to furniture and sanitary ware, modern bathroom design is all about creating a sense of calm and relaxation. 

Soft curves, organic lines and nature-inspired materials are being matched with surfaces in a textured finish to make the space a warm, welcoming and all-round comfortable and pleasant place to be. 

Ultimately, the current trend in bathroom design is towards harmony, and the choice of countertop surface, flooring and wall tiles have a huge part to play in achieving this. Washbasins with curved design elements and cylindrical brassware can be matched with a textured countertop that has visual appeal in abundance, while a softly rounded freestanding bath meets its match with practical, durable and beautiful porcelain floor tiles beneath your feet. 

Textured surfaces also combine beautifully with other bathroom trends, including the move towards timber and natural wood grains now often seen on furniture, creating a sense of style that is modern but will never go out of fashion. While colour and pattern are effective ways of adding interest in a bathroom, textured surfaces are equally as exciting and very on-trend. This design element is often seen elsewhere in the home, such as the living rooms and bedroom, and is now being used more and more in the bathroom too. 

Ceralsio porcelain surfaces are available in a textured finish and in a wide range of colours, enabling this key design trend to be introduced into the bathroom with ease. A versatile, practical solution that more than meets the demands of modern living, this porcelain surface is ideal for vanity tops, tiling, and flooring in the bathroom, as it is non-porous, as well being scratch, stain, and UV resistant. 

Straight-forward to install and simple to maintain, the surfaces come in a choice of natural, polished or textured finishes, ensuring elegant, clean and, above all, trendsetting designs that bring a sense of harmony to the modern bathroom.
