2017 has been a great year for interior design, especially the bathrooms.
Let’s look at some inspiration before the year runs out.
Are you thinking of updating or redesigning your bathroom before the Holiday guest arrive?
So here are some of the trends to take advantage of as the year draws to a close.
The Past Comes To The Present…
Farmhouse style has been popular for a long time now, and it doesn’t look like it will ever go out of style,
but the heritage style has enjoyed a nice revival in recent months.
The heritage style comprises of a few different components, such as brass fittings, sculpted sanitary ware, as well as freestanding baths
You can find a collection of elegant freestanding tubs through various wholesalers to suit your bathroom size.
But while heritage and farmhouse styles are very popular, you can still add modern touches, such as power showers, as well as eco-flushes for the toilets.
If you are looking for other ways to provide that classic sheen to a modern bathroom, you could do some restoration work yourself.
And there are plenty of restorations specialists around that can help you realize your vision.
Keep It Warm
The natural warm wood look is a great one
It gives your bathroom a sense of earthiness, and by adding wood to your bathroom, you can alter it any way you want.
If you want to add elegance design, you can add some stone accessories,
or if you want to be demure and understated, simple veneers of wood look simple, practical, and great.
The great thing about wood shiplap or board and batten, is that it has a lot of character
If you’re going for a farmhouse or rustic look, wood is your ally in this respect.
The one thing to think about when adding wood walls to your bathroom is what color to go for,
a darker brown is going to look more rustic, while lighter colors will look more farmhouse
If you’re really thinking about adding lots of wood, you may want to go raw.
Painted tongue-and-groove paneling adds a nice work in progress dynamic to your bathroom
Think about what you like in your design before you press on.
You could also benefit from a mirrored glass, or if you’re feeling particularly adventurous, colored glass.
The great thing about mirrored glass is that it will create a feeling of space, even if you have a small bathroom.
If you decide on tiled floors with light grouting, it’s best to opt for the designs in a large format.
A lot of bathrooms suffer from a lack of natural light, mainly due to frosted windows
Frosted windows provide privacy, but also creates a darker bathroom.
The main problem is that reflective surfaces all over the bathroom can look too bright and quite sterile.
To combat this, make one wall a feature wall, which focuses one’s attention.
Another option to create a nice bright bathroom, but without the glare, add some LED lights, behind glass,
This gives a more soothing tint to your bathroom, which is great if you want to spend some time relaxing in the bath, and who doesn’t?!
Adding Color To The Bathroom
As well as these styles, colors are making a big impact
You want to go for calming, relaxing colors in your bathroom.
Adding warmth and a sense of comfort is key.
Some color ideas including plum, deep amethyst purple, and teal
If you’re not feeling warm and cozy, denim colors are continuing to be a hot topic in interior design.
Bluey Greys are great colors to use with white or chrome fixtures
This color will make them stand out more, and the contrast is fantastic.
Cozy & Relaxing
Winter is a time for sitting back, feeling cozy with a hot chocolate in the kitchen, relaxing on the couch in your favorite socks, or enjoying a warm cozy bath.
You need a luxurious bathroom in which to do this, so try these trends out and see for yourself!
