While these three may be the most common, other natural elements can also help round out your bathroom design. Try to let as much natural light into the room as possible; if you have control over the home’s layout, consider making the bathroom a room with a view. On a smaller scale, try incorporating greenery into the space.
A wet room is the height of modern bathroom style and is ideal for maximising the sense of space, particularly when teamed with a soft colour palette and minimal styling. With no moving parts or doors to open and close, a wet room is also suitable for all ages and accessibility requirements.
The new serenity trend is inspired by the Japanese notion of Zen. Create a simplified, pared-back look that is the perfect antidote to the pressures of urban living with tonal colour combinations and natural wood such as raw oak for warmth. Oversized tiles (above) will minimise the amount of grout lines, which will make for cleaner open wall and floor areas.
Futureproofing your bathroom by making it accessible to older people is a practical trend in modern bathroom design – possibly because more of us are now living in multi-generational households. Products such as low-slip floor tiles, lower level baths and furniture and accessories that are designed to make bathing easier for all can be incorporated into any scheme.
