If we have to sum up the direction of current bathroom design trends in a single statement then it would be “a desire among homeowners to find a relaxing revitalizing and nature-centric retreat at home”. Timber definitely fits this billing and it has made a grand comeback in 2017. Incorporating wood into the bathroom is no longer a taxing affair that keeps you constantly on the edge because you are perpetually worried about damage from moisture and infestation. Contemporary solutions even provide space for cheaper and eco-friendly reclaimed wood accent features that will serve you well for years to come.
As it is in life so it is in home decor: there’s more than just black and white dark and light. There are many shades in between and sometimes they are the perfect piece to capture the balance. Often decorated with creative patterns the vessel sinks in-between will bring a completely unique element to your bathroom.
Maybe your bathroom already looks rustic and old-fashioned but maybe it’s more on the modern side. Either way a copper tub is a good choice! It will either perfectly match the rest of the rustic interior or be that one vintage element that feels like a soul of the room!
Placing a glass shower into a monochrome bathroom will open up the space even more making it brighter and more transparent. If you feel like extending the checkered pattern beyond the flooring add some to the walls as well and play with mixing the diagonal and straight checkerboard tiles.
Summer and tropical style is a match made in design heaven and it is barely a surprise that as each time the warmer months roll in everyone wants to tap into a bit of tropical richness and beauty. Once again you need not completely alter the style of the bathroom and adopt a tropical-centric look just for the sake of a few months. Instead usher in elements from the style like lush green plants with their giant leaves natural finishes like bamboo blinds or a rattan stool or maybe lighting fixtures inspired by the tropics. Mixing modern and tropical styles is pretty easy and often the result is truly spectacular.
Taking the living room into the bathroom might sound a bit crazy at first but this definitely is the way forward for those planning for a brand new bathroom. The idea of ‘bathroom living’ is gaining momentum across the world with designers and homeowners gravitating towards this innovative and luxurious concept. It is a trend that has also been personified in the many bathroom designs that we recently witnessed at Salone del Mobile 2017. Allowing you to add everything from bookshelves and comfy couches to a fireplace and TV to the bathroom this fabulous upgrade will turn your existing bathroom into a soothing private sanctuary.
