SalaBaño was founded in 1981 to be the first national Spanish magazine to specialise in the bathroom decoration sector. As a professional media, SalaBaño timely provides market information as a truthful reflection of a dynamic sector, on account of developing and writing product reports, publishing interviews and company news, newscasts, latest product presentation, global market research, reports from national and international fairs, etc.
SalaBaño covers perfectly the professional and technical aspects with a broad array of sections dedicated to bathroom decoration and design, working with first-rate collaborators, to offer our readers excellent ideas and solutions for renovations and bathroom designs.
SalaBaño has a circulation of 7.000 copies, distributed periodically every two months between subscribers and carefully selected mailing list members. Our database is continuously updated and includes bathroom professionals, showrooms and distributors, bathroom boutiques, interior decorators, architects and bathroom & tile installers. The vast majority of the print magazine is distributed in Spain, although it is largely read by professionals of the bathroom and construction sector from our neighbouring country, Portugal. SalaBaño has managed to open new markets and enhance the brand exposure of all companies that partner with the SalaBaño magazine.
The strong and long-time establishment of the SalaBaño brand calls the magazine to be present in most of the leading international fairs of the sector, such as Cevisama (Valencia), Construmat (Barcelona), Cersaie (Bologna, Italy), ISH (Frankfurt, Germany), Salon del Mobile (Milan, Italy), M&O (Paris, France) and 100% Design (London, UK) among others.
