Design trends for bathrooms in 2015 part 2
This year we’ll see some sensational new trends emerging in bathroom and interior design. Here we look at the must-have furniture, gadgets and fixtures for 2015.
Essential bathroom products this year will focus on style and creativity, while offering practical functionality. We’ll see the trend for sinks with vanity units continuing, and twin sinks will be a staple solution for families with children and sizeable en-suites.
Shower screens and cabinets will move away from clear glass, with smoked and tinted glass being a big hit this year. And high-gloss and mirrored finishes will make way for magnificent skin and tone textures in furniture and feature designs.
While the demand for baths has declined, the ultimate indulgence is still the freestanding bath. Where space allows, this adds sophistication to a bathroom that’s second to none. Shower concepts will become more extravagant, with luxurious walk-ins and frameless enclosures opening up possibilities for bathrooms of any shape and size.
This year’s bathroom designs will be bursting with the most innovative features, as advances in technology continue to dominate in all areas.
We’ll see an explosion of ‘smart’ ideas, with the ultimate being a state-of-the-art toilet that offers washing and warm-air drying. We’ll see sensational showers with digital remote control for temperature, water flow and even showerheads with colour-changing light effects.
Cabinets are no longer just a place to keep essentials – with built-in speakers, blue tooth and touch-sensitive lights, they offer the ultimate in convenience and high-tech functionality. And colour-changing taps allow you to set the mood you want for your bathroom experience, while infrared sensors give you instant flow and temperature control.
Low-energy LED lighting will be prominent in chic bathroom designs, with waterproof white and coloured lights offering atmospheric solutions on walls, and in floors and furniture. Underfloor heating remains indispensable, as the bathroom becomes less of a simple washroom and more of an indulgent retreat.
With the environment playing a large part in design considerations, we’ll see water-saving showers, taps and toilets becoming increasingly popular.
