3 Essential Bathroom Design Trends to Look Out for in 2017
Like the water flowing through your whirlpool bath jets, bathroom design trends are always on the move. As 2016 comes to a close, it seems like a great time to turn our attention to the bathroom design trends of tomorrow. So with that in mind, here are three bathroom interior design trends that we think will be making a big splash in 2017. In no particular order, let’s take a look…
#3: Minimalism and simplicity
If there's one trend that always makes a comeback no matter how long it's been gone, it's minimalism. In 2017, you can expect to see plenty of clean lines and uncomplicated styles in every bathroom product line. If you want to get ahead of the curve, you may find inspiration in our ever-growing range of modern taps, or through the always-popular Japanese Soaking Tubs collection. In fact, the latter is an excellent example of the ways in which economy of space in bath design can create something truly contemporary. After all, who needs a huge whirlpool bath when something compact can do the job just as well? That’s minimalism in action.
#2: High-tech bathrooms and smart living
The world is growing ever more connected every day, and your bathroom is certainly no exception. In fact, next year you can count on seeing plenty more high-tech additions to bathrooms across the UK. It’s all about creating bathroom products and accessories that make your bathroom easier and more fun to use. Products like waterproof LCD televisions and whirlpool bath sound systems are set to make waves in the bathroom world. If you're yet to incorporate smart technology in your bathroom, there's no time like the present. Get the jump on next year’s tech trend now by exploring our smart whirlpool bath products and accessories. With a range of smart solutions that’s always on the increase, you could even bring a little light to your life with a chromotherapy-based underwater lighting system – it may just be more affordable than you might think.
While they may sound like two very different schools of thought, there's plenty to be said for the meeting of vintage and modern design. This trend does take a little courage to pull off. In essence, rather than simply picking a single motif for your bathroom design (say vintage or modern), you actually incorporate both. For example, you might choose to install a freestanding claw-foot style bath for that traditional touch, then pair it with a set of ultra-modern open-spout taps. Conventional logic would suggest the two won't play nice together, but if this 2017 trend is accurate, conventional logic will no longer apply. If you're feeling brave, this could be the trend to try in your next redesign.
