Discover six of the hottest bathroom looks that are sure to make a splash in the season ahead – and stand the test of time too.
1. MARVELLOUS MARBLE
A recurring trend in interiors, marble has taken the world by storm over the past few years. Its crisp, clean and natural look with delicate pattern formations provide visual interest to our homes whilst still keeping it minimal, luxurious and tasteful.
Cover your walls in marble tiles for a stylish statement or simply use it on the floor for luxury underfoot.
2. CLASSIC BLUE
Classic blue is the Pantone colour of the year for 2020, making it a firm favourite with design brands across the board. It is timeless and enduring whilst its simplicity brings an elegance to a space, especially the bathroom.
3. SAGE GREEN
Sage is a chic green hue that adds a more mature spin on the pastel trend that comes back year on year.
Its muted tones are softer on the eye, but it still uplifts a room as much as a brighter more poignant shade would do.
4. VINTAGE CHIC
Whether you want to ensure your interiors are in keeping with your period property, or jump on the trend for vintage, this timeless theme will always be here to stay.
In the bathroom, think gold tones, curvy accents, antique art, statement chandeliers and a statement freestanding bath.
5. STATEMENT TILES
Statement tiles can bring a new dimension to a bathroom and elevate the space. Whether you choose monochrome patterns for the floor or tile up the wall by your basin, it will add a point of visual interest.
To elevate your design further, mix it up with different shaped tiles such as hexagons or a mixture of large and small squares joined together.
6. CRITTALL WINDOWS
First invented in the 1880s Crittall metal-framed windows were hugely popular in the Art Deco era. As with many design trends, it has come back around, but this time with a contemporary twist.
Fitting well into the industrial style, these dark and rather striking windows add sharp angles and allow for plenty of light to flood into the room. But they don't have to just be used as windows; Crittall shower screens are also proving ultra-popular and make a cool alternative to clear glass.
