Bathroom for four boys

This bathroom, for the four boys of a family in Bordeaux, has been designed with a sense of fun and is an explosion of colour. Each boy has his own basin, with a mirror cleverly placed at the right height.


Parapan is a sturdy high gloss acrylic. As it’s a solid material the colour runs all the way through. It’s ideal for kitchen and bathroom surfaces as it is easy to clean and won’t fade, rot, or delaminate. Parapan is available in 22 colours including Red (like the one above) and Citrus Orange (like the one in our bathroom picture).

C.P. Hart

C.P. Hart has an excellent range of countertop, undermounted and free-standing basins in a variety of sizes and styles including the Duravit Vero 450mm basin pictured here, which could be undermounted with an overflow.

Johnson Tiles

With 7000 varieties of ceramic and porcelain tiles, Johnson Tiles offers a huge selection of colours, sizes and finishes. They hold a large ‘Prismatics’ colour range of 200 x 100mm tiles which could be used to similar effect.
