Everything You Need to Know about Bathroom Trends for 2017

Bathrooms are fast becoming an area of the home where you can showcase modern design and the latest trends. Far from the bland functional spaces that we saw in the 80s and 90s. It’s about time too given the amount of time we spend in the bathroom. So why not splurge on creating a beautiful space.

If you’re planning a bathroom renovation or in the process of building, this article is for you. Stay ahead of the trend and future proof your bathroom with these 2017 and 2018 bathroom trends.

Bold Lines

Masonry materials are constantly evolving and we’re now seeing the introduction of strong vertical lines that are achieved through large elongated bathroom tiles. This look provides simplicity and elegance in design.

More Organic Materials

The organic movement is only just getting started. A range of soft organic finishes and cladding is flooding the market and when combined with high end masonry, it can give a warm function juxtaposition. Wood and stone is always a good combination.

Smaller Tubs

The popularity of bath tubs will increase in coming years. In the past, it was often a tricky job designing a functional bathroom with enough room for a tub. Elegant bath tubs are now available in a range of sizes, and some much smaller to be able to fit almost any space.

Tapware

Gold, bronze or black. Tapware products are becoming increasingly experimental and breaking the mould of the traditional silver colourings. Black tapware has been around for a while now but it is set to become increasing popular in 2017 when coupled with the new bathroom materials that are coming onto the market. Experimental shapes and colours now offer a palate for almost any design and look.

Living Bathrooms

Moving along with the organic trend, we are also seeing plants creep their way into a large number of bathroom designs. Complementing basins and tapware can be selected to bring life into bathroom designs and colours that will place emphasis on ferns, green walls and small bathroom plants.

Whilst we can’t predict the future, it certainly seems clear that 2017 will be all about organic materials, bold use of colour, finishes and lines as well as emerging shapes in the world of tapware.
