Is it time for a change of tub?

2018 is just around the corner, and for many that means it’s time for a shake-up, for a change or a redesign. You’ve got your mind set on swapping the style of your bathroom but you’re stuck for ideas. Here at Options Studio, we understand what can make or break a bathroom. So we’ve compiled a handy blog of upcoming bathroom trends to look out for in the new year. By looking at these, you can ensure that your bathroom scrubs up nicely.

Colour

Bathrooms are no longer being confined to just all-white spaces - 2018 will see a bit of colour added into the mix. Strong, vibrant colours designed to make a statement against a monochromatic backdrop are in - muted is out. Greens, blues and yellows all help to evoke a natural feel in the bathroom, but 2018 is going to be all about that fusion of black and white. At Options, we can offer deep blacks that create striking, hard edges, which play well with the light space created by the white.

Freestanding Baths

Bathrooms are rapidly becoming more about space and the way that space is used. Showers no longer have to be rigid cubicles - 2018 is going to see an influx of more freeform showers that work in conjunction with the rest of the bathroom, giving the impression of a flowing space. Walk-in showers and wet rooms are becoming more common, while a rainmaker shower head adds a tropical feel. Combined with the open nature of a walk-in shower, this creates the essence of an near endless space.

Mixed Materials

At Options, we don’t believe bathrooms have to appear clinical and sterile - quite the opposite. In fact, a fusion of traditionally modern and natural elements is going to trend in 2018. Wood has found its place in the bathroom, able to work alongside the typical ceramic to create a powerful dichotomy. It’s a clever move, with the wood providing a warmth that contrasts well with a bathroom’s usual coldness. Whether it’s the bath, the basin or anything else that is transformed, the addition of mixed materials can help to bring an extra facet to a room.

Patterned Tiles

Tiles are going to play a big part in how bathrooms are going to look in 2018 - in particular, coloured and patterned tiles. Patterned tiles can turn an otherwise plain bathroom wall into a feature, or even a work of art that nicely compliments the rest of your room. Alternatively placing the pattern on the floor means that you can choose a more minimalist approach on the rest of the bathroom.

2018 is shaping up to be a year of stylish bathroom trends, mixing the modern with the natural while emphasising space over form. If you’re still in need of ideas or just want to get started on a new bathroom, don’t hesitate to get in touch 01344 627500.

With nature themes prevalent in 2018, wood is the perfect material to feature in your bathroom, and with a rich variety of timber, you will be spoilt for choice!

Let us help you innovatively and creatively combine wood with stone, metal and ceramics for a completely unique bathroom interior. Research has gone into combining wood with these materials to ensure that they merge perfectly and can even be seamlessly introduced directly in the way of the water, such as floor coverage and shower zings!

Check out our  gallery  for some ideas on combining textures, or visit our  showroom  in person to get more inspiration and advice.

Recently we have been working for a client with a rented property looking to refurb two of their en suite bathrooms. Our team are delighted with the amazing transformation of each bathroom, the before and after photos below showing just how much of an improvement was made. The designers incorporated some of our most popular brands to give each bathroom the showroom effect that our clients desired.

Bathroom No.1
This is the perfect couples bathroom with stunning twin sinks and a large spacious double ended bath. The mirror lighting on the cabinets is an exciting extra touch, ensuring there is the optimum lighting for getting ready in the morning. The dark, sleek basin with two discreet inset sinks is by Dansani,  whilst the dreamy sunken bath is by Bette.  The wall hung toilet is Catalano  as is the sophisticated flush plate.

Black has been hugely popular so far this year, and it won’t be stopping anytime soon. Its simplicity yet contemporary tone is perfect for the modern bathroom, particularly when paired with some innovative lighting. Black  brassware  is also a very stylish and original accessory to consider; its smooth matt surface is stunning in contrast to a textured white surface.

Choosing the floor and wall  tiles  for your  bathroom  can be really tough – the choices seem almost endless and the variety is overwhelming. Many choose to go for a pale, sophisticated yet simple tiling design which is guaranteed to look flawless and stylish. However, considering bolder, brighter, patterned tiling will guarantee you a wow factor that you and all your guests will appreciate. This doesn’t mean you need to cover your bathroom with the craziest tiles possible; a feature wall will draw the eye, emphasise the contrasting tiles and look incredible, without coming across as overwhelming or tasteless.

 

1/ Texture

Combining textures in the  bathroom  is certain to give a contemporary and unique feel. No longer is the bathroom limited to porcelain ceramics! Stone, wood, cork and glass are just a few options, each with various textures such as glossy, matt, polished and satin. The gorgeous  shower  room below uses the contrast between the dark textured wood and the smooth cream  tiles  to have a real impact. Textured feature walls such as this add interest and originality to your bathroom.
