Well, that’s half of the year behind us now and it won’t be long until Autumn is here either. Did you know that the season which falls between summer and winter is actually one of the busiest times of the year for home renovation projects? Summer is also a great time to plan for such work and if you’re thinking about a bathroom refurbishment, in particular, it’s not too late to get on board with the trends inspiring the nation.
If your shower room has been looking a little dull of late, here are 5 bathroom trends that are still going strong for this year.
Mixing up your tiles is a great way to add a level of interest in your new bathroom without making it look overworked and too busy. For a simple take on this trend, pair white gloss metro tiles with a geometric shaped version for a look that is subtle but incredibly polished. Alternatively, stone-effect wall tiles are a popular choice lately and these work really well against a tiled mosaic feature wall.
There’s nothing better than the freedom of a wide open space and the bathroom of your home is no exception. Wetrooms are a fantastic way of introducing more open space into your home and are easy to use by the young and old alike. Bathrooms can generally feel compact in size but with some adjustments to the layout, Direct Heating Installations will be able to convert your standard family bathroom into a deluxe and open-plan wetroom. Why not read our recent article on wetrooms to find out more.
Black and White
One of the most timeless bathroom trends of this year is black and white monochrome. Because it never really goes out of style, if you choose to have your new bathroom fitted out in a black and white colour scheme, you won’t feel like it’s completely out of date later on down the line. Matte black fixtures are also becoming more prominent in bathroom design lately and when done right, they give a real heritage appeal.
Who doesn’t like wood effect flooring hey? A really nice alternative to the familiar stone-effect version, wood-effect tiles are extremely long-lasting and have the beautiful finish of a natural timber. With the bathroom also being a place of sanctuary for homeowners to de-stress, wood effect floor tiles will help to achieve a calm, spa-like quality.
Last and by no means least in our roundup of the current bathroom trends is a standout, feature floor. Named as one of the biggest bathroom trends of last year, standout flooring is still making a bit impact and because the floor space is usually much smaller than the walls, dabbling with the floor is more cost-effective and it means you can be bolder with your choices. From distressed slates to vintage patterned tiles, if you’re going to make a statement with any of this year’s bathroom trends, make it daring, feature flooring.
