We all know that design trends come and go but the next big thing is warm metal fixtures in bathrooms. Gone are the days of cold chrome and stainless steel. These days it’s about creating inviting spaces with the likes of copper bronze brass and gold.
Large natural slabs of marble & onyx; every slab unique making no two bathrooms exactly the same. Venetian marble wall prints are popular elsewhere in the house as are these colorful slabs in the bathroom. The bigger the better single pieces preferred an entire wall claimed by natural beauty which has been concealed for millions of years.
In most small bathrooms you either have a combination bathtub with the shower inside or you only have a shower. If your budget allows lose the shower curtain and add a glass door enclosure. Glass will create the illusion of a bigger bathroom and when you’re using the shower it will feel larger too. Consider using clear or lighter colored shower curtains if installing a glass door is not an option. If you have tall ceilings install the shower curtain at a higher head height to elongate the feeling of the room.
Traditionally choosing furniture for a modern space meant staying within the Art Deco Shaker or Mission styles. More recently Scandinavian-inspired products have also been included in this category. Whichever design your bathroom furnishings are try to ensure that they are as simplistic as possible and have a clearly defined shape.
Sleek and minimalist; A massive trend over the past 5 years: Frameless shower enclosure are simply no nonsense. Cutting back on all the frills bells and whistles using only what is necessary to ensure structural integrity (chrome brackets) this is the design to go for if you’re looking for longevity versatility and class.
Clean and clinical; simple monochrome is another winner for 2014. Variations of the same color throughout the bathroom using sleek polished or matte tiles to set off the latest in modern fixings. This is all about keeping it simple like the Scandinavians do well; eliminating clutter using high quality materials keeping it lustrous tasteful and classy.
