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.
Freestanding tubs are a staple for modern bathroom designs. Balance is key, so keep things symmetrical and sharp by strategically placing your tub in a spot that enhances the feng shui of your bathroom. Traditionally bathtubs are the familiar oval shape, however give a rectangular or pedestal tub a try.
