Bathroom Refurbishment Trends
Often the smallest room in the home, it is easy to overlook the bathroom when it comes to redecorating. Yet it plays a central role in daily life; after rising from sleep or before snuggling under the covers, this is where you start or end your day. It’s a place for grooming, relaxation and tranquility and, as such, it’s important that it is beautiful as well as functional. In this article Solid Works, experts in bathroom refurbishment in London, looks at four inspiring design trends for 2017. Click here for a quote.
The use of natural materials in bathroom design, such as wood, bamboo and stone, is on the rise and this trend is set to continue. Timber is increasingly the material of choice for shower panels, sink worktops and even sinks and baths. Stone, such as marble and granite (or its man made equivalent), is also likely to feature heavily in bathroom design as it is both timeless and elegant. Meanwhile, bamboo is becoming a firm favourite for accessories such as bathmats and mirror frames.
Grey is the colour of the moment, with grey coloured floors, tiles, doors or paintwork very much in demand. Part of the appeal is that it gives interiors an industrial, contemporary look that works so well alongside materials such as wood, glass and steel. Grey is seen as more fashionable than magnolia or white and provides the perfect backdrop for monochrome patterns or bright colour accents, such as blue, green or amber.
Bathroom furniture and accessories in unusual shapes is another design inspiration, with some home owners choosing to replace their traditional oval bath with circular, hexagonal, square or boat shaped tubs. Hexagonal wall and floor tiles have also proved popular this year and its appeal is set to last. Plain or patterned, these provide a striking contemporary look and work equally well in both small or large spaces.
Sculptural type bathroom heaters are increasingly sought after among customers looking for cutting edge designs. Contemporary towel rails and radiators in stainless steel, chrome or nickel finishes have become an exciting alternative to the traditional ladder design; as well as metallic, various colour options are available too.
