Your bathroom should be a sanctuary space,where you can retreat from your busy life. Keeping this space updated is one of the best investments you can make in your home. 

These are some of the top bathroom trends to guide your decorating and renovating choices. 

Bright and beautiful

It’s easy to see why bold bathrooms are the latest look. Have some fun with colourful fixtures, patterned towels and wallpaper.

Metal

The copper metal trend will be around for a while longer. Bring this warm, lustrous metal into the bathroom with your basin, taps, piping or even a copper bath.

Beach

Coastal style incorporates natural seaside accessories and elements, drawing inspiration from rocks, shells and natural driftwood. A simple white-wash and natural blue and green tones are classic choices.

Contemporary cool

Contemporary bathrooms are elegant spaces that reflect a forward-thinking design approach. The use of clean lines, geometric shapes and hard angles are the way forward here. This bathroom style is characterised by a sleek, simple and unadorned space, which is great for smaller bathrooms.

Float

Floating sinks and cabinets are all the rave at the moment thanks to the many advantages that they offer.

Luxe

Create a feeling of ultimate extravagance in the vanity area. Luxury bathrooms are all about freestanding baths, marble and gilt accessories to create the ultimate feeling of opulence.

Minimalistic

This style of bathroom is all about clean lines and the use of whites and greys to keep the space simple. This is a great fit for smaller bathrooms as it creates the illusion of space with elegant lines and nothing to unnecessarily clutter your bathroom.
