Give your bathroom the wow-factor by choosing the perfect hero piece. This will be the focal point of the room; tying together design elements and setting the overall tone of the bathroom. There are a range of options to choose from so we’ve put together a list of our go-to hero pieces for any bathroom design.

Custom Shower Screens

Shower screens have become the new showstopper of the bathroom. Often selected based on function and practicality, the shower screen is now looked at as a feature, adding to the aesthetic of modern bathroom design. Termed this year as the “hidden hero”, there are a range of design options when it comes to colour, texture, size, frame and more!

Feature Tiles

Choosing unique floor or wall tiles make for a great bathroom feature and can help bring your personal style into the space. Statement floor tiles are a great option in challenging spaces where no feature wall is available. If you’re looking for something a little bolder try textured wall tiles, changing the feel of the entire room by adding depth and movement to your bathroom. Large tiles are a popular pick in modern bathrooms and with fewer grout lines, they are a great choice for keeping your bathroom clean.


With the rise in contemporary basin design incorporating above counter settings, slim-lines, unique shapes and using a range of materials like concreate and stone – It’s not surprising that the basin has become the popular choice as the bathroom hero piece! American Standard’s Acacia Evolution round vessel basin, is the perfect example of a modern hero piece. With its soft lines and balanced proportions, the vessel basin creates a sense of tranquillity and calm.


It’s not often that people look to the toilet as the hero of a bathroom but American Standard’s Acacia Evolution toilet range offers a modern, sleek design that’s sure to catch the eye. Create the illusion of a larger bathroom with the wall hung pan – exposing more floor space or opt for the back to wall pan, offering a clean look by concealing the cistern within the wall.
