If your bathroom is in need of a revamp, here are four of the biggest design trends that you need to know about in 2016.
Boutique Bathroom Design
In 2016, there is more than ever before, a focus on ambience when choosing the perfect bathroom design. The bathroom design should always be functional but there is now more of an emphasis on creating a tranquil space that is designed to enhance your experience. This trend is inspired by five-star hotel bathrooms and the need to create a practical space that makes getting ready for the day simple yet balancing that functionality with furniture that has a boutique feel. Why not add a dressing table into your hotel-inspired bathroom design or add sofa style seating to create a relaxing space that you want to spend time in?
It’s safe to say that metallics are having a moment so if you are looking for inspiration for a bathroom design makeover, look no further. Incorporating metallic elements into your bathroom not only is a fail-safe way to add a touch of glamour to this space but it is also a simple way to create a contemporary aesthetic. Metallic taps are a subtle way to experiment with the metallic trend and due to the versatility of metallic fixtures, you can be as subtle or dramatic as you desire. A copper bath is one way to take this trend to the extreme without going overboard while splashes of copper and rose gold also make for a stunning bathroom feature.
There was a focus on freestanding baths in 2015 but this year it’s all about making a statement with your shower. High-tech showers offer innovative features such as steam functions, water jets and oversized showerheads designed to provide a luxurious, invigorating bathing experience. Built-in portable benches and built-in audio features are becoming more and more popular options for homeowners that want a modern bathroom design. In terms of space, next season’s showers themselves are larger providing homeowners with more space and as a result an upgraded shower experience that enhances any morning or evening ritual.
This latest trend is all about adding luxury to your bathroom design with a fire feature. Unique features like this not only make your bathroom more desirable but it can even add value to your home. A built-in fireplace will create a cosy, romantic feel to the space and make your home stand out from the crowd. Having a unique feature such as this can make your home more desirable to property buyers when the time comes to sell and help you get a higher return on investment. If you are happy with your existing décor but simply want to add a little bit of wow factor to your bathroom design, this is one easy way to achieve it.
