Happy New Year from everyone at Nexus Hygiene! Around the office, we have been discussing our New Year’s Resolutions, both personally and for the business. It got us thinking – what sort of habits are ideal for both professional settings and personal growth? Here are some of our top picks, which we will be focusing on in 2024.


Not only is it a creative way to process emotions and work through any problems you might face, but journaling provides a written record of your life that you can look back on fondly later. The principles of journaling are also present in good business practices – keeping well-organised records, protecting data, and approaching problems methodically. This year we are committed to optimising our record-keeping even further, and looking at issues from every angle to help our customers find the best solutions.

Time Management

Time management can be a challenge (very few of us enjoy an early morning!), but it is so important to get it right in a business context. Being timely is about more than just efficiency – it signifies that you respect the time and effort of those around you, improves your reputation as detail-oriented and conscientious, and ensures that you are prepared at all times. It can be a small habit that opens plenty of doors, so definitely worth focusing on in the new year.

Using Trusted Suppliers

Building strong business relationships can set up every new year to be successful. Just as individuals have brand loyalties to specific products and shops, businesses that choose suppliers that they trust can enjoy an understanding and a flexibility that facilitates better business practices. For example, at Nexus, our supplier of washroom consumables has been established for 25 years, and we have worked with them extensively to provide the best quality products. Benefitting from the knowledge of experienced experts is the perfect resolution to set yourself this new year, both at work and at home.

The PANTONE Colour of the Year 2024 has been announced: PANTONE 13-1023 Peach Fuzz. This delicate, velvety shade reminded us of some of the colour trends we have seen in eras past, particularly in the bathroom. In this blog, we’re looking back on previous decades of decorating and remembering some of the best (and brightest!) of the bunch – which one would you choose for your office washroom?

1950s – Hot Pink

The 1950s were all about volume – big hair, loud music, and even louder colours! Hot pink bathrooms were fashionable and chic, adding a vibrant and exciting splash to the facilities. From tiling to towels, accent colour became a way to express individuality and liven up what was previously a much more utilitarian space.

1960s – Retro Prints

Move over, hot pink, here comes flower power. The garish patterns and colours of the 1960s were not just limited to clothing; they were often used to brighten up the bathroom! From paisley to polka dots, nothing was too much for the bathroom walls.

1970s – Avocado Green

Perhaps the most famous (and divisive) bathroom trend of all was born in the 1970s – avocado green. No such thing as too much, an entirely green bathroom was not an uncommon sight, from the porcelain to the tiling. Another common feature of 1970s bathrooms was carpeting instead of hard flooring, which might leave a modern decorator baffled but was all the rage 50 years ago!

2020s – Peach?

Skipping forward to the present day, PANTONE’s Colour of the Year may well begin to feature in 2020s bathrooms. With a light and airy feel, this gentle colour can help to open up a smaller space, and promote relaxation.
