The bathroom continues to be a key element of our homes, playing a much greater role beyond that of its traditional function as merely just another part of the daily routine where you start and end your day.

“The bathroom continues to be a key element of our homes, playing a much greater role beyond that of its traditional function as merely just another part of the daily routine where you start and end your day.

It has become both multi-purpose and multi-functional, from somewhere to get energised and inspired to a space where you can relax and unwind."

Natural materials

It’s often been avoided in bathrooms, but light wooden furniture and surfaces are going to be a big trend. Thanks to a range of new finishes and treatments, woods that once wouldn’t have survived in such damp environments are now hard wearing enough to withstand wet conditions. Great for adding a rustic theme to your bathroom, think less polish, more salvage and rough-hewn finishes.


The ultimate material for fans of raw, cement provides a cool, relaxed feel to any bathroom and can make a space seem larger as it can be laid as one smooth surface. That being said, creating a cement floor, ideally with underfloor heating to counteract its cool properties, can be a big job. Luckily, cement effect flooring can be applied as an alternative. These strong materials are hard wearing and bring the industrial trend into your bathroom.

Mettalic Hues

Sometimes changing the smallest details can make the biggest difference, for example gold, copper and chrome finishes, and will make even the most mundane basin shine. Adding metallic hues can give taps a contemporary twist, also look for oxidised metal or even a matt-pattinated finish for a more natural, less polished finish.

Darker colours

Using dark colours on the walls and floor with good lighting can actually make a small space seem bigger, as well as delivering that chic spa like feel. Think different shades of greys, particularly darker shades and hues, which are very on trend for creating a tranquil feel of luxury and relaxation.Dark purple, rouge and even duller matte greens are all also on the rise as part of the bathroom colour scheme.

Supersized walk in showers

Walk in showers, with the entrance to the showering space at floor level, are set to become ever more popular. Taking inspiration from luxury hotels with huge showers suitable for multiple users, supersizing your shower at home for a luxurious experience is bang-on-trend for 2017.

Double basins

His-and-Hers bathrooms are on the rise as busy couples say the bathroom is the number one sanctuary where they can spend time together – it also means saying goodbye to waiting for your turn to brush your teeth in the morning!

Rimless toilets

Busy lives mean we’re less inclined than ever to install a bathroom product that is going to zap our time with cleaning. Thankfully, rimless toilets, such as AquaBlade from Ideal Standard, are set to become ever more popular and provide easy cleaning as well as a pleasing aesthetic. Rimless toilets allow for a more powerful flush without splashing helping to make cleaning your toilet less of a chore.

Free standing vanity basins

Wall hanging vanity basins make cleaning simpler and save space. They are a saviour especially in small bathrooms, as a clear expanse of floor below creates the illusion of space.

Decorative tiles

Finally is good to mention that the late years we can see a shift away from the super minimal bathroom of old. Colours and patterns are incorporated into the design. In flooring for instance, Victorian style monochromatic tiles or even Moroccan inspired repetitive patterns can be laid. Also a little Mediterranean flavour to the wall or floor, traditional florals, decorative motifs or geometric patterns are another option to be used. A mix of eccentric shapes and colours can add a fun, vibrant look to your bathroom.
