5 key bathroom design trends for 2015
For many people, the New Year is an opportunity for a fresh start. Whether this involves cleaning out your diet and hitting the gym 3 times a week to get in shape, cutting out bad habits like biting your nails and smoking, or making more time to focus on your hobbies – its common for people to want to reinvent themselves… as well as the spaces they live in.
If you are looking to redecorate your home this year, we have listed 5 key design and style features that are sure to revive your bathroom in 2015:
1. Statement tiles
Whether they feature on the walls or floors of your bathroom, or maybe even both, 2015 is all about statement tiles. With a variety of new designs and shapes available, from subway, to geometric, to mosaic – you are guaranteed to find a tile that reinvents your bathroom space and adds that personal touch.
Tip: For small, compact bathroom spaces, white or cream rectangular tiles are a great way to open up space and add light, with minimal grouting required.
2. Large walk-in showers
As our schedules get busier and the morning rush to get ready gets quicker, it is no surprise that people have less time for baths. Many now opt for quick and easy everyday showers and as a result are investing more space and money on larger showers for their bathrooms.
Tip: Creating a large open shower-space in your bathroom can be done easily with a walk-in shower feature and a clear glass shower screen.
3. Personalised vanity suites
Vanity suites have long been a popular feature of many bathrooms. They provide the necessary storage space to make everyday bathroom products easily accessible and keep surfaces free from clutter. People are now looking to make this feature of their bathroom as unique as possible.
Tip: When personalising your vanity unit, consider your key uses, whether this is for storage, electrical shaving points, or maximum mirror space – tailor your vanity suite to suit your needs.
4. Recycled design
As the importance of waste recycling and sustainable living continues to increase in 2015, design and style is now also moving in the same direction. When it comes to bathroom décor, this involves the use of reclaimed furniture in the form of cabinets and shelving, wooden flooring and low-flow toilets and showers.
Tip: Cut down water and electricity bills by choosing water-saving flush toilets and energy saving light bulbs, to transform your bathroom into a modern day eco-friendly feature of your home.
5. Heated flooring and towel rails
Investing in heated flooring and towel rails has become an essential feature of any bathroom and it’s not hard to see why. There is nothing worse than getting out of a warm bath or shower; to be greeted by a freezing cold tiled floor and a damp towel. These two popular features can give your bathroom the necessary warmth, comfort and luxury required for everyday relaxation.
Tip: We recommend browsing our vast range of shapes, sizes and styles of heated towel rails to suit any bathroom design in 2015.
