Bathroom design trends for summer 2018/19 include bold colours and remarkable mirrors; along with timeless favourites like brushed brass finishes and bespoke concrete textures. Whether you’re looking to undertake a minor bathroom makeover or enact a full bathroom renovation, Highgrove Bathrooms suggest that you keep in mind your home’s overall colour palette and how to best utilise the framework of your space in terms of layout and design impact.
Brushed Brass Finishes. Brushed brass finishes made a comeback in 2018 and will continue into 2019. Suited to most colour schemes, but especially darker palettes, the warm, burnished tones and earthy industrial sheen of brushed brass give a luxe appeal to any bathroom renovation, instantly adding value and a no-expenses-spared look and feel to your home. It is a classic, timeless finish that will stand the test of time; and the addition of matching brushed brass elements like the showerhead, tapware, robe hooks or vanity handles, will complete the look.
Dark, Bold Colours. Pastels and neutrals may have been all the rage in 2017, but for those looking to move with the times and make a bold statement, darker colours are trending. In particular, bathroomware and accessories in a deep forest green or striking navy are on the rise in bathroom design. Whether you’re looking to splash some vivid colour over a vanity, plush towels, cabinetry or statement wall, bold colours will provide impact for a bathroom renovation.
Concrete Textures. Introducing a new texture to your bathroom will transform the look and feel of the space. A concrete finish has a bespoke look and is fast becoming an interior design favourite. In Summer 2018/19, the raw, industrial look of concrete is making its way into bathroom design. Consider bringing concrete textures into your bathroom renovation by pairing a concrete basin with a timber vanity top or matte black tapware for a contemporary look.
LED Mirrors. LED mirrors can bring that 5-star feel to your bathroom makeover. The streamlined look of an integrated LED mirror oozes luxury while significantly brightening up the bathroom with dedicated task lighting and creating the illusion of more space. Available in so many different shapes and sizes, there will be a variant to complement your style and décor.
Round and Oblong Mirrors. If bright lights don’t suit your bathroom design, opt for round or oblong mirrors instead. Unlike traditional square or rectangular mirrors with squared edges, the curved profile of a round mirror can soften the overall look of your bathroom. With an elongated oblong mirror above the vanity, you’ll also be able to create the illusion of a higher ceiling, making your bathroom feel more spacious.
