on Jan 10, 2019
Looking at selling your home in the near future, building a new home or wanting to update your bathroom? Allure Bathrooms has the inspiration you need for all the latest bathroom trends this year. The bathroom is the one room where we all start and finish our day. It is one room that can add huge value to your home, where function, practicality, and style should not be overlooked.
This place brings luxe products to the market that don’t break your budget. You’ll find quality, stylish and practical pieces to create your ultimate dream bathroom. Recently I popped into Allure Bathrooms Mitcham showroom to explore all the current bathroom trends. The below ten styles have been in high demand and are setting the mood for this year’s bathroom trends. It can be easy to play it safe when it comes to bathroom design and styling, but once you discover all the latest bathroom trends don’t be afraid to add different textures, natural elements, metal tones, and splashes of colour. Find some inspiration below with the top 10 latest interior design trends for your bathroom renovation or makeover!
1. Natural and Raw Materials
Think timber, stone, concrete and marble. Timber vanity bench tops are huge at the moment with American oak being extremely popular along with the warmer tones of wood. Bath and basins in natural or stone-like materials are hugely popular when it comes to baths and basins. Matte black being the most favourable as it creates the perfect statement piece. These materials are also setting the trend when it comes to bath caddies, side tables, niche features and all other bathroom accessories.
2. Metal Tapware
Rose gold, polished gold and gunmetal bring that luxe feeling to your bathroom. Timeless, classic and with a touch of elegance makes me a huge fan of this bathroom trend! Tapware never looked so damn good. This is one of easiest ways to update your bathroom if you are opting for a minor makeover. It’s a small but impactful way to change the look and feel of a bathroom.
3. Fully Frameless Showers
If you are renovating your bathroom this is one trend you must follow! A frameless shower suits all bathroom designs. Providing functionality, it elongates the smallest of bathrooms. We have a walk-in frameless shower in our downstairs bathroom and it is honestly the best, especially when you have kids! Practical, seamless, stylish and modern, it opens up the space and is so much easier to clean. A single fixed glass panel says goodbye to frames and creates the perfect spa like retreat to unwind in after a long day. Allure Bathrooms have options to suit your requirements from fully frameless showers to walk-in shower options. Not only do they look fabulous they are also very friendly on budget.
Every bit of space counts, especially in small bathrooms. Wall niches are a fabulous way to store everyday shower and beauty essentials and to display stylish accents. A wall niche on its own can create a beautiful statement piece. Enhance a wall niche with intricate tiles and add a little more luxe with LED lighting. Set the LED lighting within the niche for a seamless look and added luxuriousness. Its statement making and practical, minimising clutter in the shower. With various sizes available speak to one of Allure Bathrooms friendly designers to help select the best sizing to suit your design requirements.
5. Back to Wall Baths
Want that "freestanding" look but don't want the trouble of cleaning all around the bath? Trust me we have a freestanding bath and with kids water gets everywhere! Back-to-wall baths are becoming hugely popular. A bath that sits flush against the wall and still gives the appearance of a freestanding tub and allows more space in the bathroom. Depending on what shape you are after, Allure has options: Riva for a round style, Quadra for a corner style and Hydra for a square style. No matter which style you opt for it's the perfect location to place a stunning niche. Fill it with luxurious bath products, greenery, scented candles or perhaps a cute rubber ducky for the kids. Your own little day spa sanctuary at home.
6. Hang It From Vanities To Mirrors
When it comes to vanities and mirrors wall hung is on trend with simple details, no handles and luxe features like soft closed drawers and premium runners. London, Kyoto and Emporia are great options within this trend with numerous options to customise your vanity choice. Stone, concrete and timber are the most popular choices for vanity tops. Solid timber is definitely highly explored, whilst warmer tones and American oak is a favourite.
Compliment your vanity top with an above counter basin in a matte finish. Matte black has been a top choice, and matte white is being opted for over a gloss. For matte black options Lotus is style that will never go out of style. In matte white solid basins Monarco and Phoenix or Lotus Choose matte white for a less expensive option. Next add metal tapware for a luxe feel to compliment your choice.
Wall hung mirrors can make a statement of their own. Like a work of art it’s one trend worth exploring.
Just doing a mini bathroom makeover? Lighting is a great way to up the ambience, elegance, and that "day spa feel" and style. From the smallest pendant lighting to largest "wow" piece and wall lights to create your own luxurious oasis. As mentioned above LED lighting in niches bring a whole new level of ambience.
8. Underfloor Heating
While the sound of underfloor heating sounds quite costly, once you experience it, it is one you’ll want to splurge on. It adds a whole new level of luxury to any bathroom. Not only wonderful to step out on, there is the added benefit of any leftover water being evaporated. Say hello to less mould! This is one trend I don't think will disappear anytime soon.
Cue earthy tones in larger styles, monochrome and herringbone feature tiles. Tiles are a fun way to add textures, colour and patterns. With endless styles to choose from, tile choice can easily make or break a space. Allure Bathrooms’ style guide will provide you with ideas for the type of design you’re after. Be sure to speak to a design consultant in your selection process. Natural earthy tone tiles are a great way to bring the outdoors in. Intricate smaller tiles almost like a piece of art can create a "wow" feature when you walk into the bathroom.
Greenery, greenery and more greenery. In our busy lifestyles today we can all benefit from bringing elements of the outdoors inside. There is something about plants in the bathroom creating a place of tranquility and relaxation. Personalise decor trays with favourite items like your fanciest skincare. Add finishing styling touches with large scented candles, luxuriously soft robes, divine smelling soaps and other accents to compliment your style. Towels are a great way of adding a splash of colour from prints to solid colours. Storage baskets are great options for neatly storing and displaying towels. Styling is one of the cheapest ways to change up a look and keep up with new trends.
