Trend alert: Ten fresh bathroom trends

The bathroom is a sacred space and for me provides the only hour of solitude during the day. There is nothing as healing as taking a bath with essential oils and soaking away with your own thoughts.

I have found ten very exciting new bathroom trends including a few that have been with us for a while and are so popular that they might just stick around a little longer.

Trend #1 – Patterned floors

Patterned floor tiles in Moroccan designs gives the space texture without being too busy. This bathroom’s structural elements are outlined with the use of black and creates a lovely regal look.


Trend #2 – Textured tiles

Matt white textured tiles are now seen in all the hippest bathrooms. It shows off its shape subtly with only the light playing on the textures.


Trend #3 – Geometric tiles

This 3D geometric tile gives the bathroom a sophisticated feel and a dash of masculinity.


Trend #4 – Industrial lighting

This trend made its way from the dining room to the bathroom and look at the dramatic effect it creates combined with wood and shaped mirrors.


Trend #5 – Barn doors

Sliding doors are a great space saver for a bathroom. Barn doors add a bold, natural statement to the space which I absolutely love.


Trend #6 – Plants

The vertical garden is still big and even more so in the bathroom. It can be costly to get it installed with the correct watering system but has a wow factor that’s hard to beat.

Alternatively you can create a still life using a few distressed ladders and plants that love a moist environment.


Trend #7 – Stone walls

Stone tiles or cladding are all the rage in bathrooms right now. Play with natural (or natural looking) elements.


Trend #8 – Ceramic wood tiles

This bathroom is clad with ceramic tiles that resemble wood to give it a lovely textured and natural feel.


Trend #9 – Subway tiles with dark grout

Subway tiles are etched off to emphasize their shape by using dark grout instead of the usual white. I love the industrial elements in this bathroom contrasted with the wooden floor.


Trend #10 – Black, white and blue

Bathrooms have taken on a more serious colour palette like this one in black, white and blue giving it a masculine feel.


Keep an eye out for our bathroom make-over incorporating some of these trends on a shoestring budget!

Happy styling,
