Up and coming and here to stay
Round mirrors are key. Gone are the standard square shapes. Even square
mirrors are getting a shake up with rounded corners. Thin profile basins
are on the rise, although the traditional and organic styles are
topping the preference chats at the moment, the thin profile is becoming
ever more popular, and we're seeing many more of these shapes in store.
Hamptons is here to stay, it’s safe and great for resale as it suits a
broad market. Powder rooms are for having fun. Pendant lighting and
statement tiles are always at home in a powder room.
Tips for planning the perfect bathroom
- Make sure you plan for its user. Make it practical if planning for a
family with children; plan for wet floors, storage spaces and the best
layout that will suit.
- Lighting, natural light is the best for a bathroom that will be
used every day. Also think about if you want pendant lighting for a
feature. Frosted glass or glazed.
- Shower heads, Drenchers (overhead soakers) or a head on a rail so
you can take it off or lower to kid’s height. Although drenches look
amazing (a feel amazing) they are a bit of a pain when you want to sit
on the floor and shave your legs! Ha-Ha.
- Floor heating vs lamp heaters.
The list goes on and on, by best advice would be start looking in magazines, on Pinterest and website such as Metricon and Reece, pull inspiration from the sources that are so readily available. You will soon see a pattern in what style you like most.
It may be that your favourite looks will all feature black tap ware and marble bench tops, maybe even plantation shutters behind a free standing bath. If you draw from the images you like and reference back to them you won’t find yourself off track with a mixed style.
