We’re nearing the end of 2017 we’ve seen a number of bathroom trends over the past year. From elegant period style through to luxury wet rooms. We’ve taken a look at our top 3 2017 bathroom trends.
1. Period Bathrooms
Period bathrooms have made a comeback recently with
the home owner looking to be in keeping with their period home.
With plenty of bathroom products available when it comes to
Victorian to Edwardian reproduction you’re spoilt for choice.
We’ve also seen a rise in art – deco style geometric patterns with
the traditional style metro tiles becoming increasingly popular.
We’d always recommend going for reproduction pieces for your
bathroom just because you’re going for a Victorian Style bathroom
doesn’t mean you should suffer the misfortune of Victorian Plumbing. Most period style bathroom
reproduction manufacturers such as Burlington now offer products with modern plumbing technology
such as toilets with Eco flushes and taps with ceramic cartridges.
2. Hotel Chic
With couples spending weekends away in luxury boutique hotels it’s
no wonder they want to replicate that look in their home. This trend
is great for quality bathroom brands such as Vado & Hansgrohe as
you nearly always find their products in these hotels due to their
reliability. The Hotel Chic bathroom trend nearly always starts with
a freestanding bath as a centre piece, the bathroom is then always
built around that with lighting used to create a relaxing warm mood.
3. Luxury Wet rooms
Luxury wet rooms are really on-trend in 2017. With people having such busy
schedules it’s no wonder people tend to shower more than using the bath. This
has seen an increase in people looking for large luxurious showers which has
seen more people going for wet rooms. Gone are the days of the badly informed
plumber claiming they always leak as bathroom showrooms such as ourselves
have spent a lot of investment in educating them in how they should be installed
properly. Providing your plumber knows how to install a wet room properly they
will sing their praises all day long as the positives far out way the negatives as long
as the correct products are used. We’d always recommend going for a wet room system such as Aqua4ma or Impey
as they both come with lifetime guarantees.
