The biggest bathroom trends revealed
31st January 2018 posted in Home Lifestyle
If you are looking to update your bathroom, it is crucial that you can envision how you want the finished piece to look and feel.
Cool and clean bathrooms with high-tech updates, supersized showers and sleek finishes are timeless. Rainfall showers and wet rooms have been a popular installment as well as colour changing lights and built in audio. Modern décor is the majority of people’s choice when it comes to design and Scandinavian continues to be a huge trend. To combine the two, opt for white and grey colour schemes. A partial wall separation, creating a zone for your bathroom or shower is also a popular choice for bathroom renovations.
If your taste is more traditional then period fittings and vintage style glamour can give your bathroom a sense of timeless elegance. Classic sculpted ceilings, freestanding roll top baths and brass fittings are just some of the designs being seen and if you are lucky enough to live in an ancient abode or Victorian terrace, look high and low at the floors and ceilings for fixtures and fittings that can be revived and refitted. When it comes to eras, there are plenty of options to choose from including Art Deco and Edwardian. Head to charity shops and car boot sales in search of basins, baths and accessories and pick your own original pieces.
Mirrored and reflective surfaces are wildly popular and are everywhere from floor to walls, furniture and ceilings. Mirrored tiles look great in bathrooms and can bounce light around the room. A feature wall of reflective tiles can also look great in bathrooms and creates a focal point. In addition to this, flat-fronted, handleless high-gloss fitted furniture is a good choice if you want to achieve a modern feel and many high-street stores sell a wide range of such items at great prices.
One of the most popular colours for interiors is grey and a grey bathroom is not only understated but also sophisticated and classy. Pale grey walls look great with white furniture but there are many grey bathroom furniture options so you are bound to find something that fits in with your interior.
If you prefer a neutral colour scheme, consider bold floor tiles to had personality and character. Spanish tiles or bohemian tiles are patterned tiles inspired by Spanish culture. Depicting lively and eclectic patterns, adding them to a plain bathroom can create a standout feature.
No longer just a space to wash in, today’s bathrooms are a place for relaxation, luxury and an experience for the senses.
