Our Top Three Bathroom Trends

Your bathroom should be a place of relaxation and a little indulgence. A great bathroom will make you feel invigorated in the morning and help you to relax in the evenings. Fresh, sleek bathrooms that have been injected with personality and offer great functionality are an expectation of any home these days.

So if it’s time for a little bathroom update, here are our top tips for upping the ante in your bathroom space!

1. Lighting

The saying might be “less is more” but that’s not always the case in your bathroom. For bathroom spaces, multiple lighting sources are generally favoured so that you can create mood for times when you wish to relax but also have ample lighting for applying makeup, shaving etc. Having more then one lighting source will ensure that your bathroom is both functional and fashionable.

2. Free Standing Bathtubs

A freestanding bathtub is like having a beautiful piece of art on display.  A striking, sculptural design will lift the style stakes of any bathroom.  What’s more, these aesthetically pleasing tubs will set the tone for rest and relaxation.

It’s important to consider your freestanding bathtub in relation to the rest of your bathroom design.  A curved bath will bring softness to a sleek room featuring sharp lines, while an angular tub can offset soft colours or add impact to a highly structured bathroom.

3. Décor

 You want your bathroom to be a space you love being in so it’s important to give the space ample personality.  We recommend doing this through décor that can be changed as your taste and style evolves.  Hot pink walls or tiles embedded with seashells reflecting your personality might tickle your fancy now but won’t enhance the resale value of your home!

Soap dispensers, laundry baskets and towels are fairly standard décor items for any bathroom and each present a great way to add both colour and texture to your space.  Chrome and metallic bathroom accessories are great for people who love to be on trend while soft, white accessories and natural textures promote a sense of relaxation and calm.
