Go Bold and Stay Home
Bathrooms are now less confined to clinical white, polished ceramic and a clean contemporary feel. Instead people are becoming more confident about going busy and bold in bathrooms and WC’s.
1. Luxurious Styling
As homeowners, we tend to use our bathrooms at least twice a day. Studies have shown that the average female spends at least 29 minutes in this space each day so it’s become a necessity to ensure that bathroom design delivers an at-home spa-like atmosphere so we can linger for longer.
There are extensive ranges of luxurious showers and heads allowing the creation of an indulgent showering experience in your own home. Connection between water and wellbeing has never been easier with waterfall shower heads and walk-in showers to replace bulkier units.
2. Greenery not just for the Garden
In addition to luxury panels, Biophilia – the integration and inclusion of nature as a focal point – isn’t going anywhere.
A biophilic bathroom design will boast certain patterns that reduce stress and improve creativity while featuring forms and materials that emulate those found in the great outdoors. Add greenery with plants, real or faux, soft furnishings or wallpaper.
3. Fluted finishes
Intricate surfaces have been given a contemporary twist in the bathroom. Add detail with edge details on tops, skirting or even dado.
4. Warm earth and terracotta tones
Embrace natural pigments to turn up the heat in your bathroom scheme.
Alongside the mood for comfort comes the move towards warmer tones, including terracotta, rust, caramel and biscuit. Try contrasting them with black taps or a black basin to add definition.
5. Marble still in the limelight
Marble is definitely enjoying its moment in the limelight. You will still see plenty of bathrooms that being planned has some form of marble in it. ‘It is a beautiful natural looking material which comes in a wide variety of colourings, markings and veining’s.
But remember, it doesn’t have to be real marble which can bring some problems with the natural material. Faux marble’s like Versital offer the option for the appearance of marble, whilst also being non porous and stain proof.
People are being more adventurous with marble, incorporating greens, blues, pinks, basically anything a bit out of the ordinary to make their own mark.
