Designing the bathroom is a significant part of home décor, and decking up this cozy retreat can be a challenging affair. The interiors of the bathroom need to be refreshing and soothing because this is the room you head to before kick-starting your day in the morning, and where you unwind after returning from work in the evening. Here are some of the latest trends that can lend a fresh look to your bathroom:
Gone are the days when bathrooms were supposed to be the staid and colorless corner of the house. The modern bathroom of today blends décor, furniture and accessories associated with living rooms. It is all about giving it the look of a “comfort zone” with sufficient space to keep not only the bathroom essentials but also books, magazines, vases and even armchairs.
The modern bathroom is all about shapely looks with rounded corners. Therefore, the bathtub and the basins need to flaunt their curved looks. To go with the pattern, even the mirrors need to be circular.
Space constraints can come in the way of having a giant bathroom. To create the illusion of an airy open space, there are frameless shower enclosures that are gaining in popularity. The color palette of a bathroom needs to be simple, and it is best to use one main color in a variety of shades throughout. Too many color shades can have a jarring effect. Beige and eggshell-colored bath fixtures and white or polished chrome faucets were in for many years, but gray is now fast catching up as the lead color in bathrooms for a minimalist feel.
Patterned floor tiles are the toast of the season. Be it in retro style or patchwork combination, textile-inspired designs can lend a unique look to a bathroom. Porcelain is the most favored material used for tiles.
With today’s bathrooms aspiring to be on the lines of spa retreats, the shower heads are also undergoing transformation, so varying water pressure of the shower heads can ensure a soft rain feel or a waterfall effect when taking a bath.
