Many people like to leave the redecoration of their bathrooms to the last minute, assuming that redecorating it will be an expensive and stressful experience. But with a little planning and keeping up with the best bathroom design trends, this doesn’t have to be the case.
While you obviously don’t want to be too “on trend” as this may mean that your bathroom looks out of date a few years later, choosing to incorporate some of the best can give your bathroom a fresh, interesting look that keeps it feeling modern for years to come.
Hexagonal tiles are a great way to be trendy without risking going out of fashion. While tiled bathrooms will always be a classic style, using a different shape is a great way to get a fresh look. Bathrooms are also excellent places to show your artistic side, and you can either buy or make some lovely pieces and use them as focal points in key spots like over towel racks, the bath or toilet.
Those who like to keep up with more modern trends will appreciate the monochrome style. Different variations of this style have been popular for years and will continue to be popular for years to come, and you can choose from muted or glossy black finishes with white and chrome. For those who are uncertain about going fully monochrome in the bathroom, choosing a few key accessories to show your monochrome look is another great way to embrace the trend without going overboard.
Anyone who has been on Pinterest or key design blogs lately will know that a natural style is big this year. People are picking out natural stone accessories along with timber vanities after seeing how popular they are in Milan and Paris, and while timber flooring always looked great, it wasn’t a good idea due to the amount of moisture that is usually found in bathrooms. Luckily, there are now many great tile options to choose from that actually have a timber look and can help you make your bathroom look a little more on trend.
If you have a small bathroom (and many of us do), you may be tempted to use dark colours. However, this is a mistake, and the solution is to use light colours in order to make your space look bigger and brighter.
Another way to make a space look bigger is to make sure you’re using the most appropriate lighting. Fluorescent lighting looks good on no one, and it’s never a good time for those who need to put their makeup on in the morning. Instead, use wall-mounted lights, make the most of any natural light that comes in from the windows, and if possible, install a skylight to get more natural light in the room.
Painting your bathroom is an easy way to make it look a little more modern without spending a lot of money. Just be sure to choose a colour that goes well with your theme and accessories so you don’t want to change it in a few years.
