Bathrooms have transformed from a utility room of little importance to a major focal point in any new homes. They now often reflect the look & feel of 5 star luxury, a haven in which to retreat & relax. Listed below are some emerging design trends
1. Harmonious Sanctuary
The master Ensuite in particular has become a retreat, a space in which to relax. Bigger rooms, spaces that flow, minimal contrasts, lots of natural light
2. Decorative Luxe
Ornate mirrors, chandeliers, patterned wallpaper, gold or silver trim, patterned tiles. This trend suits especially suits Powder rooms, where it is less of a wet area & you can have a bit a fun with it
This is a modern European look. Think slick, straight or slightly curved lines & gloss finish on vanities. The vanity dominates with strong colour & contrasts against the tile colour. It especially suits small apartment spaces
4. The free standing bath.
You can create a statement & focal point with a free standing bath. It won't work unless the space is big enough to support it.
5. Large, airy showers:
Larger showers that accommodate 2, often with 2 sets of taps or a hand rail with feature shower head.The look is clean & minimalist; the shower base is tiled like the rest of the room
Not just functional, they are a great way to add a designer element to the room. It can also alter the way we look at a room, making the room look bigger
