The advent of indoor plumbing brought bathrooms inside the home, providing the opportunity to fuse form with function. Today’s bathrooms are a focal point of the house, incorporating luxury materials and sophisticated design. Whether you are renovating an existing bathroom or building a new home, here are some of the latest trends in bathroom designs that you may want to follow.
Freestanding Bath Tubs
The popularity of freestanding baths has tripled over the past three years as people discovered that pulling the bath away from the wall and out of its built-in confinements gave them a whole new opportunity to implement design. Manufacturers have responded to the increased demand by offering an endless array of styles, shapes, and sizes.
Freestanding baths come in a wide variety of materials to choose from, including:
Acrylic reinforced with fiber resin
Customised Bathroom Furniture
Vanities that resemble customised furniture lend character and warmth to bathrooms and have become wildly popular. They can be made to match the style and colour of the décor in other rooms, resulting in a cohesive motif throughout your home. Top your cabinetry off with a designer sink and hardware for the ultimate blend of beauty and purpose.
Heated Towel Rails
Innovative radiant heat technology is incorporated into metal racks to keep your towels warm and dry. They are available in a variety of finishes and styles and can be made to fit any space while complimenting all bathroom designs.
Sleek Toilet Suites
To achieve a sleek, modern look, many people are opting for the back to wall, or “wall faced” toilet suites. With a compact shape and a hidden waste trap, these toilet suites are discreet and easy to maintain.
Track Rail Shower
A track rail shower system gives the homeowner a personalised luxury shower experience without raising the water bill. These systems allow for full height adjustment of a track-mounted shower head.
