Bathroom design trends

Many of us have moved on from items that feel sharp, hard edged and industrialised – a common theme seen in 2016 bathrooms. The race track shape, almost rectangle, with sexy curves has seduced us to take a closer look at our interior spaces and trends insist the ‘touch appeal’ is now an essential to any design. Think curved freestanding baths to sink into and sleek basin mixers or shower tapware.

A piece of furniture or a home décor item lovingly crafted by an artisan as an original individual piece, rather than mass produced instantly adds a distinctive and personal touch to any interior space. Original hand painted tiles or hand crafted pendant lights can add an extra personal touch to these spaces also.

When designing the bathroom space; hand crafted stone, concrete, timber or painted vessels placed on beautiful handcrafted cabinetry crafted from local timbers or exotic veneers can be stunning. Custom designed pieces i.e. timber tops of vanities or complete vanity sets, can become an exquisite feature in any bathroom. Examples of this are shown in the Bathroom Collections below and in The Bathroom Book 2017 (page 8-15).

The concept of chargeable/enlarged imagery on surfaces will transcend into bathroom joinery and enable the device to be your news, music or social media whilst bathing. For this reason the bath will never be out of trend.

Lighting is also high on the specification list when designing the bathroom. Strips of LED lights can range from a basic warm light to multi light changing options, creating the mood you so desire. Ambient lighting casting out from under the mirror cabinet or flooding down a wall of tiles are a truly cost effective way in really making your bathroom an oasis.

We’ll see 4 eclectic trends pulled through to bathroom products, colour palettes and textural devices; Fade, Discover, Proclaim and Invisible. Colour is immensely important, polarising between simple and honest or unassuming and stronger with more saturated tones that make a bold statement.

Texture is a key feature, not just with tangible touch and feel, but with colour diffusion and material highlights. Uneven patterning, textural opposites, blocked colour contradictions and a transparent opaque look.

Fade – Subtle watery/muddy paint hues and tones applied with the ombre effect for more definition. A feeling of softness, calmness and light seems to be the desired result. Perfect for using the pantone colours of the year; Rose Quartz 13-1520 & Serenity 15-3919, which, when subtly featured in a bathroom will add a harmonious touch. 

Discover – Slick and rough i.e. a freestanding bath with a rough rock exterior. Modern details mixed with old world items. The colour discovered from these processes can vary from a deep aqua tone to the clarity of river stone grey.

Proclaim – A hyper natural atmosphere. Think digital printed botanicals onto wall papers, tiles and fabrics. Quirky and unusual based on the natural rich hues of the earth. 

Invisible – Monochromatic colour tones paired with transparent weaves. Looking for the blurred out version of colour. Whitened print over coloured wallpaper, fabric or tiles. Sheer fabric covering windows for the filtered light. The foamy and water droplets look gives a space a multi layered pure feel.
