Go Retro


Form and function no longer applies to the bathroom or wet room design. Instead make a design impact and take a bold step in bathroom design by adding retro finishes. Small additions will have a big effect. Why not swap chrome finishes with antique copper or rose gold brass-ware. This trend is set to continue well in 2016 and beyond. These finishes add a touch of warmth and when complemented with other materials, they add a sense of elegance and luxury to any bathroom setting.

Create the Minimalist Effect.


Creating a minimalist effect is the perfect way to create a Scandinavian inspired bathroom. Tones of grey and white complement each other perfectly. Choose from a wide spectrum of shades to create a minimal design look. These two colours will ensure a timeless aspect and bring about a sense of calm and serenity to any bathroom. Complete your look with bathroom accessories that adopt similar neutral tones to ensure that your bathroom stays on trend for years to come.

The Natural Way


Bring the outdoors in. Wooden features and accents are the perfect addition to any bathroom to add a touch of Scandinavian appeal. Wooden features will have a huge effect whichever way you decide to introduce them. Solid oak furniture will have a striking effect within a simple bathroom with white, minimalist tiling. Or why not choose porcelain wood-effect tiling. These wooden–effect tiles are taking bathroom interior design by storm. They are timeless, create a wow factor and lend themselves very well to the overall bathroom design. They look incredible, are far more practical and maintenance is minimal.

Creative Storage Space


The bathroom is a practical space but that doesn’t mean that you can’t integrate style with functionality. Create a place of luxury and convenience within your bathroom. Maximize space cleverly without compromising on style or design. Don’t take up unnecessary space in your bathroom. Instead create storage below the sink with some shelves to store towels. Or why not implement a Scandinavian – inspired freestanding storage ladder to store a variety of bathroom cosmetics.
