If you’re serious about giving your bathroom an overhaul but don’t know where to start, why not take a look at the latest trends for inspiration? To help make your bathroom makeover project that bit easier, we’ve made it our mission to find out which bathroom design ideas are expected to make a splash in 2016
Feature Floor Tiles
Statement-making floor tiles became popular back in 2014 and this eye-catching look isn’t leaving in a hurry. They really are stunning and are ideal for bathrooms that have no clear walls for a feature wall. After years of minimal concrete and stone effect tile trends, it’s refreshing to see a return of pattern. Feature floor tiles are bold and on-trend, and can serve as a great addition to any bathroom. Imagine a free standing bath hitting feature tiles – the effect can be both stylish and elegant.
One of the key bathroom trends of the coming year is to draw design inspiration from nature. This could include the introduction of earthy materials such as natural stone or wood-look tiles. This is a great way to turn the room into a welcoming and serene space with a calming vibe. Bathrooms that are designed with this concept in mind can help you to achieve complete relaxation while having a bath. Add plants as well as lots of natural light to bring the outdoors into your bathroom.
Improved Water Control
It’s time to say your farewells to standard shower and basin taps, and a warm hello to clever fixtures such as thermostatic mixers and mixers that have control of various water sources. Showers operated by touch-screen are likely to be big too. You may think that these devices sound like something from a movie set in the future, but they’re actually here now, ready to make your life a whole lot easier! These fixtures give users much more control over the mix and temperature as well as the flow of the water in their bathrooms.
Leading bathroom designers predict that 2016 will be the year when the bathroom gets just as much attention as the living room. They believe that the time has finally arrived when it will receive as much design consideration as other rooms within the home, whilst also becoming a more multi-functional space. It will transform into a room that not only has bathing and cleansing as its primary function but a room in which to really relax and unwind.
