Top 4 luxury bathroom trends for the summer
Are you planning to give your bathroom a luxurious redesign this year? There’s no time like the present. No matter how glamorous your luxury abode is elsewhere, if your bathroom isn’t up to scratch then guests will be the first to notice. An ugly or dated bathroom suite can let your whole house down – so why not go all out and create the luxury bathroom you’ve always dreamed of?
If you really want to ensure an opulent feel, then how about a gilded bathroom with a pair of £9,000 copper baths – or bespoke Japanese toilets and gilded basins worth over £36,000? These are the types of features you’d find in some of the world’s most expensive bathrooms, and can make for a luxury bathing sanctuary to be proud of.
Be bold with bathroom wallpaper
While wallpaper has had a huge resurgence throughout the rest of our homes, it’s taken its time to reach the bathroom. In 2019, however, it’s right on trend, and with this year’s bold patterns, it can be used to create a unique feature wall that will really ramp up the glamour.
Once, the advice was to keep wallpaper well away from wet areas, but with the introduction of new printing techniques and materials, you can now use it in even the wettest parts of your bathroom. Just make sure you seal the paper with a matt decorator’s varnish so that you can enjoy soaking in your new modern oasis without a care in the world.
Go graphic with your bathroom tiles
This year, bathrooms should be anything but dull, and whether on the wall or floor, using an accent tile is a great way to add luxury and individuality. Choose from bold contrasting colours or subtle soft hues – there are a range of intricate patterns available that will completely transform your bathroom. Atlas Ceramics recommends water-resistant tiles as they are easy to keep clean whilst also protecting the walls from moisture. From ceramic, stone, glass or porcelain, using patterned tiles is a great way to introduce eye-catching feature areas.
Go for gold
While chrome may have reigned for a long time, gold is now officially back. But while it’s undoubtedly a way for you to add some glamour into your bathroom, this year’s trend is far more subtle than before. Take a less is more approach to introducing gold into your bathroom design and build it up gradually. Choose gold light fixtures or basin tap to start with, then continue to layer on the gold accessories to reach the level you wish. But remember, subtlety is the key; the gold accessories are designed to compliment your bathroom, not steal the show.
Colour bathroom suites are back
Believe it or not, the white bathroom suite is finally out – and that means that coloured baths, sinks and toilets are back. You may have never thought you’d see the day when avocado bathroom suites might be back in vogue, and if that’s not quite to your taste, then worry not – there are a whole host of other shades you can choose to add a bright splash of colour to your bathroom. Coloured bathroom suites in bold shades add a great sense of luxury and drama to any bathroom, especially combined with gold or polished chrome taps.
Whether your tastes are bold and eclectic or subtle and relaxing, this year’s bathroom trends are all about adding a new dimension to your bathroom through colour and shape – and upping the glamour factor across the entire house.
