10 Newest Trends In Bathroom Design To Update The Look
Bathroom in need of an update? We’ve found some of the best new looks and designs for your space – from modern shower room ideas to chic, marble styles and plush, luxurious designs.
Refreshing a bathroom doesn’t always require a total overhaul: it can be as simple as swapping the sink, the taps or bathroom wall lights. And this year has seen the launch of some seductive new collections. Designers are moving away from hard, angular lines and instead leaning towards furniture and fittings in more flowing shapes.
Whatever your style – whether you’re after an on-trend brass bathroom, raw and natural space or a patterned look – if you’re planning to refresh your bathroom, we’ve got it covered. These are the latest bathroom fittings and luscious looks you’ll love for years to come.
1. HOT STUFF
A radiator is not the sexiest part of a bathroom remodel, or so we thought, until we saw the CLIP from BREM. The design, which resembles a torsion spring, comes in three sizes and can be installed vertically or horizontally. What’s more, it’s available in a staggering 80 cool colourways. Snazzy.
2. MAKING WAVES
London Basin Company is more known for its richly decorative pieces, but this new offering shows it can put a clever spin on classic white, too. With its delicate ripples, the Angelina basin makes a pretty focal point in any bathroom scheme and a subtle gold rim adds a touch of razzle-dazzle.
3. ECO LOVE
Just landed at West One Bathrooms is the Lambeth pendant that not only boasts a cool design but has top-notch eco credentials. It’s a collaboration between Mullan Lighting and Elvis & Kresse, the ethical luxury pioneers who manufacture leather goods from rescued fire hoses and leather offcuts from high-end brands like Burberry. Featuring a distinctive cone shade suspended from a strap made from reused rubber, it comes in a number of finishes.
4. MINI MARVEL
Struggling to make a design statement in your shoebox of a bathroom? Enter the new Elm Mini made by Kast Concrete Basins. With a distinctive pinstripe pattern and integrated splashback, it comes in a staggering 28 colours – from the palest white to a punchy orange.
5. CANDY CRUSH
Bring some East Coast style to your kitchen or bathroom with the limited edition Miami Colour Pop collection from Dowsing & Reynolds. It features striking taps in pastel pink, soft white and neo mint, which have a matt finish and work with a variety of surfaces.
6. MONO MAGIC
If you want the look of marble without burning a hole in your pocket, Ca’ Pietra’s new Eclipse porcelain tiles are perfect for walls and floors. The monochrome design will add interest to a white kitchen or bathroom, whether it is a striking splashback or a statement floor, or you can use it with pastels or bold colour for more drama than an episode of Succession.
7. MULTI PURPOSE
What if you could fit a workout in every morning without even leaving the bathroom? Such is the idea of Mattia Pareschi’s Gym Space concept for Scavolini – a wall-mounted structure dedicated to exercise, blended with bathroom fittings – helping you squeeze in leg lifts while you wait for the shower to warm up.
8. REFLECTED GLORY
We know – it’s what’s inside that counts. But there’s no denying that feeling good about our looks helps to boost confidence and mood. With this in mind, Philippe Starck’s La Plus Belle mirror for Flos has been made with all-out flattery in mind, featuring LED lights beneath a silicone diffuser to produce the ‘best possible light’. And, with a Colour Rendering Index of 95, the light is closer to true daylight. Install in your hallway for the ultimate pre-work ego boost.
9. SOMETHING’S AFOOT
Baths are becoming increasingly leggy, which not only looks elegant but works wonders in smaller bathrooms. The Vigore from Clearwater, with its distinctive sculptured feet, is a stylish and contemporary addition to any space. Made from natural stone, it retains heat – making it energy efficient – and the soft curved design is a nod to one of the new season’s biggest trends.
10. HEX APPEAL
Our love for brass is showing no sign of abating, and it’s not surprising with on-point designs like this tap from Abode. The monobloc mixer’s hexagonal detailing will add industrial style. It’s all about the antique brass finish with a patina that will only get better over time.
