THINKING OF REFURBISHING? 7 TRENDS IN BATHROOM DECORATION
From the classics that are never out of fashion to the new milestones in technology, bathroom decoration has reinvented itself to look towards the future without forgetting the past. While the traditional elegance of marble, the freshness of natural wood or the evocative spirit of vintage bathrooms are always present, contemporary design makes its way with intense hues, geometric patterns or integral solutions in search of your well-being. If you wish to discover the latest bathroom trends, today we bring 7 ideas to be up to date.
1. The presence of marble
There are classics that reinvent themselves over time and a good example are the marble floors and walls, especially in the Calacatta version, with grey veining on a white background. Capable of taking you to ancient Rome, of reconnecting with the American Mid Mod or helping you create a modern bathroom with nostalgic elements, we propose to install porcelain tiles imitating marble. In addition to providing an elegant style that is not affected by changing trends, you will not have to worry about the maintenance of the traditional material.
2. The naturalness of wood, plants and flowers
Contact with nature allows us to recover our balance, that is why it is not surprising that bathroom decoration continues to make use of plants and colorful flowers to provide warmth and a feeling of comfort. Ideal to comply with the Feng Shui philosophy, or with styles like the Mediterranean or the Nordic, we encourage you to bring a bit of the countryside into your home by choosing floorstanding wooden furniture units like Lander, basin structures like Natura or the damp-proof Savana wooden countertops.
3. The sophistication of black color
Any element can reaffirm its presence with a black finish. For this reason, the hue of sophistication and elegance gains strength beyond bathroom furniture. Opt for black faucets like Insignia or Naia, for Line black shower enclosures or the Rubik and Tempo black bathroom accessories. A charismatic detail conceived for those who hate to go unnoticed.
4. Color contrasts
The color palette is so wide that black would never be on its own… Lively and intense hues mix with softer and more restrained tones in colored bathroom tiles like Samba or St Tropez, in basins and toilets with different finishes like the ones in the Beyond collection and in antislip shower trays like the vitreous china solutions in Senceramic® or resin models in Stonex®.
5. The careful symmetry of geometrical shapes
Lines, angles, polygons… There are no limits to geometry in the various bathroom designs because you can combine a round mirror with perimeter lighting and a wide array of geometrical tiles in the interior design, including proposals that recall wallpaper. Surrender to the impact of Art Decó or Mid Century Modern with over countertop basins or freestanding baths that can play with their shapes, colors and finishes.
6. The advances in technology
The 21st century has entered the bathroom… If you seek every comfort offered by a modern bathroom, you cannot overlook the total hygiene proposal of the In-Wash® WC with water jet or the glass operating plates that activate the flush of the cistern by means of presence sensors. Get ready for the future of the Internet of Things (IoT) with solutions that anticipate your needs and meet your expectations at any given time.
7. The retro flair of the vintage style
Finally, the path towards maximum innovation is not at odds with nostalgia, with returning to those first concepts of bathroom decoration where every detail had its purpose. The Carmen collection starts a journey into the past to enhance the work of vitreous china, wood, marble or glass. Handcrafted brush-strokes shape furniture, faucets or baths that, although evoking other times, do not disregard state-of-the-art features, such as Rimless technology, which facilitates the cleaning of the WCs.
