About HiB

Here at HiB, we’re on a mission to make bathrooms beautiful.

Home is where the heart is, and when it comes to the bathroom,we all need a space which soothes the body and stirs the soul. Our desire at HiB, is to help homeowners find their signature bathroom style and provide the ‘wow’ which comes from a beautifully styled interior.

We believe in perfection made personal, and our extensive collection of bathroom products has eye-catching options for everyone. Whether their dream bathroom is cool and contemporary, traditional and timeless, or artfully avant-garde, our range of lighting, mirrors, cabinets and furniture helps our customers to create their dream design without compromise.

HiB has created a huge change within the industry. Before the brand’s inception, bathroom mirrors and cabinets were seen as add-on products. Today, as a result of HiB’s cutting-edge design, our range of products have been elevated to show-stopping ‘must haves’, revolutionising the bathroom sector to an unprecedented degree.

As an industry innovator, HiB pioneered technology such as LED lighting, steam-free mirrors and cabinets, built-in USB charging sockets and Bluetooth connectivity.

Our hard-earned reputation in the industry has been built upon outstanding innovation and peerless quality, but above all else, our commitment to revolutionising design and ‘making bathrooms beautiful’.
