The New Year is upon us and it’s the ideal time to think about redecorating or maybe even remodelling your bathroom. So, if you need some design inspiration, we’ve rounded up the biggest design trends for the year ahead…

Vanity Units

Continuing to gain popularity after last year, vanity units are still topping the list of must-haves when it comes to bathroom furniture. Few of us have huge amounts of space in the bathroom and the vanity unit is the perfect solution to this. Combining function and style, vanity units combine storage space, a mirror and your sink space all in one, leaving you with a clutter-free bathroom.

Bathroom Tech 

There’s no avoiding it, there’s a high-tech solution to everything these days and the bathroom is no exception! This is more of a luxury than a necessity of course, but if you have the budget then adding a few technological upgrades could make a huge difference. Get the perfect temperature with a digital shower and turn it on remotely from bed so it’s ready for you as soon as you poke a foot out from under the duvet. Or how about a smart toilet? You’ve probably seen them on TV, but you could have one in your own home. Self-cleaning, water jets and a whole load of features you never even knew you needed!

Frameless Showers

This is a great contemporary addition to any bathroom, but is particularly suited to an ultra-modern, minimalist space. They are also good for creating the illusion of more space, leaving your bathroom with a more open and airy feel. The designs tend to be minimalist and chic, giving your bathroom a timeless elegance.

Metallic Accents

We’ve seen a huge rise in the trend for rose gold or copper in bathroom design, and metallic accents are a great way to add eclectic character to your bathroom. Whether you choose traditional chrome, fashionable rose gold, or you choose a more vintage style brass or gold, subtle metallic accents are a great addition to any bathroom.

Countertop Basins

Countertop basins are a really stylish addition, particularly if you have decided to add a vanity unit. They have a unique look and give a real design edge to your standard vanity unit or countertop, their sleek shape and freestanding design is perfectly suited to a contemporary, modern bathroom.
