Bathroom Design: Tips & Trends

There are so many new and evolving trends in bathroom design that it can be quite intimidating to decipher the path best for you. Known for being a regular feature in the powder room, Caesarstone sifted through all the headline trends to make the bathroom renovation process a little more spick, span, and clean cut for you… 

Minimal Impact

Free of clutter and chaos, the minimalist trend offers an experience of serene cleanliness, with a touch of sophistication. We are living in times of a more muted elegancy, creating spaces that provide refuge and comfort to retreat from everyday life. This is where you will find the stand-alone bath or the frameless/curb-less shower that blends with seamless ease into the bathroom space. The fitting options that go with this look are plentiful! Chrome is longer the modern choice, but metallics are coming back and black is still very much the favourite – they will all pop in these minimal design spaces. Featured below: 5131 Calacatta Nuvo Caesarstone

Keeping it Raw

Embracing natural and raw materials such as concrete, wood planks, and exposed beams has become common in home interior design over the past few years. Bathrooms are now catching up with the beautiful, imperfect, and authentic look that natural materials offer. Warm-coloured surfaces and natural granite tones, as well as wood furniture and classic sink vanities, reflect an ongoing fascination with nature’s simple, yet vivacious forms, resulting in a supernatural look.

Eclectic Vividness

For the bold at heart, opting for a vivid palette will find you steering in the direction of the latest forecasts.  Bringing together cultural bits and pieces from different design worlds, you can be at ease if you’re drawn to the colours of the sunset (pumpkin, champagne, and yellow) because these are being integrated everywhere. If you are not brave enough to paint the whole wall, opt for colourful décor finishes in these shades to bring the space to life. Eclectic details, richness in colour and texture, and an alluring ambiance, are created in this mix-and-match look. For a striking visual effect try ornate, patterned wallpaper, velvet drapes, and chandeliers – this can bring an unexpected chic with a twist into your bathroom spaces.

Green Fingers

For all the nature lovers, you should’ve heard of biophilic design by now, which focuses on bringing the outside in, which connects us with nature. Integrating plants and greenery into your bathroom is a great idea if you’re looking to become more calm and productive in life. The bathroom also acts as the perfect green house to grow many kinds of plants. If you don’t have green fingers, even having the nature’s essence in the form of wallpaper, and big windows to let the light in, will satisfy your desire to connect with Mother Nature.

Luxurious Escapism

Our bathrooms no longer serve as spaces where we just wash, but are rather evolving into places to relax and unwind in. This trend includes rich textures, décor, furniture, and accessories for a cosier feel that we might usually associate with living rooms or bedrooms. It is therefore no surprise that the stand-alone bathtub has made its way into this trend. Combining floating sinks, suitable lighting, and floor/wall cladding with neutral, soft colour palettes will turn your bathroom into a pampering spa. Featured below: 4044 Airy Concrete Caesarstone

When in Doubt

If the influx of options is causing anxiety – then go with these tried and tested fail proof options:
Industrial Look: With concrete being a material representing longevity, it will be around for a long time. For example, you can incorporate Caesarstone’s Rugged Concrete in many different styles to achieve a modern or classic look as the grey canvass is extremely versatile and calming.
Marble Mood: The versatile colour palette and veining found in marble-inspired surfaces like our Montblanc is a no-brainer if you can’t make up your mind. We all know that marble is timeless and matches just about anything, but it can also be utilised in different applications from small decor items to tiled or fully-cladded walls.
Safe Zone Colours: Keep your palette neutral when in doubt – whites, greys, and nudes will act as the perfect backdrop for any design style going forward. Don’t be tempted by trends that don’t sit well with you.
Tiling Fever: Of all the tiles trends and designs that have come to market, the good ol’ subway tile is still a really good option. The clean simple lines are versatile and by simply selecting a different shade of grouting, you can bring them to life or make them subtly fade into the background.
