PR Furniture company look at the hottest bathroom trends right now.
No matter how small the smallest room in your house might be, ensuring it makes a design splash is child’s play with our how to guide.
Free standing bath tubs.
Check into any luxury boutique hotel and it is likely you will be met with a free standing bath tub, a trend that is standing the test of time. Chrome legged, elliptic and likely to be positioned in the bedroom rather than hidden behind a bathroom door. These are statement baths! Baths which inspire a feeling of self indulgence within our hectic lives! Install now.
Do you ever remember using the bathroom at your Great Auntie’s? Was it full of Yardley’s soap, doll toilet roll holders and hanging spider plants? Trends always come full circle and whilst we may be glad we left the doll and soap behind, plants are very much on fashion point for the bathroom. Plants can infuse the bathroom with a calming vibe, but styles have moved on from mother-in-laws-tongues to vertical gardens. A fabulous alternative to conventional tiles.
Homeowners are increasingly searching for bespoke bathroom fittings. They want something which suits their individual needs, rather than looking at mass produced products. This also enables more effective use of the space, especially with doors which open inwards rather than outwards. The traditional three piece bathroom suite is heading for the history books…but where do you stand on bathrooms with twin toilets?
Do you remember when sleek and shiny was the only bathroom style choice to make, well not anymore. The rise of sustainable living is not only stylish but sensible. Reclaiming and up-cycling materials enables the homeowners to create their own unique space, putting their style stamp all over it.
Whilst modern houses are allowing more space for bathrooms, older bathrooms are usually conservative when it comes to space, but this does not mean compromising on style. You just need a few tricks and tweaks…
Large square sinks are not known for their space saving qualities so opt for an oval shape which will allow more counter space. Two sinks are covetable but if space is limited, why not consider an oversized single vanity unit which will allow two people to get ready simultaneously.
As we discussed before, statement baths are raging their style war all over the country and this is great news for small bathrooms. Relocating the bathtub to the bedroom frees up bags of space …creating a bigger and better canvas on which to design.
A shower curtain is a complete design no no, regardless of how small your bathroom actually is! Opt for clear glass, it will open up the space dramatically….And to ensure modesty, double check that bathroom lock!
