the minimalist look

Minimalism will be a key style for bathrooms in 2018.

Brassware is mounted and built-in for a sleek finish (which is easier to clean). Storage is built-in or hidden behind drawers, doors or mirrors to maintain an uncluttered look. To add life to the minimalist look, colour is introduced to create a focal point, whether it’s a painted freestanding bath, or a brightly patterned tiled wall the colour adds to the aesthetic, complementing not overpowering the finished look.

For those short on space, the minimalist approach maybe perfect for you. A ‘wet room’ incorporating some clever storage can be minimal and a smart space saving solution.

pop of colour

2018 will see colour play a greater role in bathroom design.

Natural sand tones and neutral grey colours are still very much the main colour choice for tiling, but these can be complemented with strong colours such as navy, heritage blues and greens, strong oranges or yellows. There is a common misconception that using dark colours will make a space appear smaller, but this is not the case and using dark colours such as grey or navy for tiling will add warmth and tranquillity to your bathroom design.

Colour added in feature walls can be created with tiling or paint. Add a “pop of colour” with a coloured bath or sink. The Adamsez ‘Calabar’ freestanding bath can be ordered in a range of colours and makes a stunning feature. Or consider the gold Emma Square basin.

Natural stone textures and wood effect tiles have come a long way and modern collections replicate patterns beautifully and are a practical way to add a natural feel to your bathroom.

Chrome is still the most popular choice for tapware but 2018 will see more brass, anthracite, rose gold and bronze colours such as the Aqualla – Ramore brassware series also available in Copper.  Matching and complementary shower trays and shower frames are also available to achieve your desired look.

Finally, black is back with a serious bang this year and we have all you need to create that stylish look, in-store. Achieve a contemporary look by choosing black; whether it’s a shower enclosure or chic black tiling. Finish off the look with our stylish range of black bathroom accessories.
