Latest bathroom trends to impress

Posted on the 19/03/2019 by Karndean Designflooring

Bathrooms are small yet hard-working spaces, so it’s important that they are functional and easy to clean. But wouldn’t it be lovely if your bathroom could also offer an indulgent retreat from the rest of the world?

From family bathrooms to ensuites and cloakrooms, we’ve looked at all the latest trends to bring you our top five styles for a stunning, yet practical bathroom.

Boutique hotel experience

We all love an upmarket hotel break, and who can resist checking out the deluxe bathroom and its luxurious beauty products on arrival. There’s no need to confine this indulgence to occasional holidays. Creating a pampering retreat at home means you can enjoy a boutique hotel experience every day.

For a spa retreat experience that’s easy to create without breaking the bank, introduce an organic theme with a natural pebble or limestone look flooring, large leafy plants, generous fluffy towels and bamboo accessories. Add luxurious touches with scented candles and your favourite spa treatment products then simply lay back and let your cares float away.

Sophisticated monochrome

The clean simple lines of a minimalist bathroom, with carefully considered storage to hide away all the clutter, can bring a zen like sense of peace and tranquillity.

A contemporary interpretation of monochrome design sees grey bring a softer option than a traditional black and white scheme. Combining gentle shades of grey with metallic touches in copper, brass or brushed steel can create a calming yet sophisticated scheme.

A slate, marble or limestone design flooring brings the texture of real stone, yet with a warmer and softer feel underfoot. For interest, why not combine a brick laid tile with a complementary border tile or introduce a herringbone pattern, perhaps as a rug feature to frame a freestanding bath.

Embrace period features

If you’re lucky enough to live in a period property, the good news is that historic bathroom style can also boast up-to-the-minute technology and convenience.

Embrace high ceilings, feature panelling and large windows with a bold opulent scheme that oozes sophistication and complements the heritage of your home. Reclaimed and vintage furniture can find a new lease of life repurposed as a vanity unit or used to store products out of sight.

A traditional rich wood design floor will complete your period bathroom style but with all the benefits of luxury vinyl. Laid either to replicate floorboards or in parquet, the warm tones of our authentic wood designs will add pattern, detail and character.

Geometric pattern

A striking geometric pattern is sure to create a bathroom that makes a bold statement. Patterns such as honeycomb, cubes, chevron or repeating patterns can be introduced either on walls with tiling or wallpaper or on the floor with geometric shaped tiles.

Choose either bright colours for a cheerful refreshing zing or opt for a softer look by keeping the theme simple with shades of grey or black and white.

Inspired by the elegant geometric tiled floors of grand Victorian villas, the very latest look can be achieved with our versatile range of heritage tiles. Choose from a selection of beautifully blended traditional patterns and striking monochrome designs or mix and match colours to create a bespoke floor that is as unique as you.

Create a seamless flow

Laying a single flooring throughout your home will visually expand the space and provide a sense of flow. This seamless approach is particularly useful for ensuites and cloakrooms, creating a clean and smooth transition as your eye is drawn through open doorways.

Many of our products are available in both full size and smaller planks or tiles, enabling creative designers to introduce interest and character with a mix and match design featuring different laying patterns. Fitting full sized planks at 45-degrees or combining with a parquet plank in brick or herringbone pattern can effectively add interest and identify different spaces without losing a sense of continuity.

We’re often asked which of our products are suitable for bathrooms. All our designs are splash proof, slip resistant and surprisingly warm underfoot, so you can rest assured that your favourite design is ideal for your bathroom. Not only that, our floors are compatible with underfloor heating so you can also incorporate an extra level of comfort and luxury.
