Whether traditional or contemporary, freestanding baths are set to be a big bathroom trend for 2017. If you have the space it’s definitely worth opting for a freestanding bath to give your bathroom a stunning focal point. What could be more relaxing than enjoying a long soak in a freestanding bath after a long stressful day?

Round Mirrors

If you’re on the hunt for a new bathroom mirror, but not sure which style to go for, then why not consider a round design? Round mirrors offer a stylish alternative to square or rectangular shapes and give the bathroom a touch of glamour. To create an eye-catching feature, pair a round mirror with a square basin.

Patterned Tiles

Patterned tiles are fast becoming a very popular choice for those updating their bathroom. Coming back in a huge way, patterned tiles are great for making a statement in any bathroom. They come in a wide variety of designs and colours, and range from contemporary geometric patterns to beautiful Moroccan-inspired designs, so there’s something to suit all tastes.


bathroom plants

Houseplants are perfect for adding a splash of greenery to any bathroom, and will instantly update the space. They help to purify the air and can aid relaxation. Plants that thrive in a bathroom environment include orchids, peace lilies, fern and ivy.

Make a Statement with Art

Adding quirky wall art to the bathroom has become a popular way to inject personality into the space and stamp your own style. You could even add impact with patterned wallpaper, which works really well in a small downstairs toilet.

Reflective Finishes

Reflective finishes don’t just bounce the light around, they add wow factor too, as well as give your bathroom a bright and airy feel. Glossy surfaces and mirrored finishes make a big difference in a small bathroom, and help to improve light levels. The most common reflective materials for bathrooms include coloured or mirrored glass, glossy wall tiles and wall panels, and high gloss bath panels and furniture. Be careful not to go over-board with reflective finishes, instead limit to a single wall or a key area.

Wall Mounted Vanity Units

Wall mounted vanity units are perfect for small bathrooms as they help to create the illusion of more space. From modern glossy finishes to luxurious wood effects, wall mounted vanity units add a designer touch to any bathroom, and they provide a superb storage solution for toiletries.

Wall Mounted Taps

Wall mounted taps maximise space and create a neat, streamlined look. They are available in modern and more classic designs to suit any bathroom. Pair a wall mounted tap with a countertop basin for a touch of hotel-spa style.

Traditional Style

Although modern is still a popular look, traditional style is becoming increasingly popular. By choosing period fittings you can give your bathroom a sense of timeless elegance with this trend. To achieve authentic traditional style opt for a freestanding roll top bath, high level toilet, pedestal basin and metro tiles.

Sleek Showers

Fitting a frameless shower enclosure or a walk-in shower will give your bathroom a luxurious, spa-like feel. If you have the budget create a wet room, which removes the need for a raised shower tray; this will provide your bathroom with a feeling of space and add a designer touch.

Add Drama and Impact

Inject life into your bathroom scheme by teaming splashes of bold colour with statement patterns. If you have a plain, white bathroom suite, you can easily add colour and pattern with towels and bath mats. You could even paint a single wall, fit a vanity unit in a bright colour or use wallpaper.

Go for Metallics

The metallics trend is big news for bathrooms, so instead of opting for the usual chrome, why not consider choosing other finishes such as brass, copper or rose gold? These soft metal tones add warmth to any bathroom scheme, and look super stylish too.
