Bathroom trends

Bathrooms are no longer just practical areas of our houses with a standard toilet, shower and basin arrangement. With a huge range of new products on the market, the bathroom has become a place to express your style and personality.

There are two key trends I’m loving at the moment – the first is the use of furniture to make the bathroom feel less clinical and more like other rooms in your house. The inclusion of an interesting chair or side table next to a bath, or perhaps a piece of art or unique pendant light, can really change the feel of your bathroom and allow you to showcase your style.

The second is the use of black tapware. If you’re looking to create a sophisticated, sexy bathroom with a bit of attitude, these new products could be just the thing.

Keep it simple by using the black tapware as a stand alone feature in an otherwise simple white and black bathroom or go all out and combine it with some amazing feature tiles or a burst of colour.
