Finishing your bathroom with on trend accessories
For Urban Bathrooms
The trend for urban bathrooms continues to be sleek and modern. City dwellers need to maximise their space so we are seeing a lot more shower rooms chosen over bathrooms (baths are great but only if you have the time and space). We are also seeing darker colour palettes like slate tiles or black shower trays. Feature or subway tiles are still very popular and unique ways to combine storage are being devised. So to complement all that slickness we have chosen a range of modern accessories that we think suit this look perfectly.
This Modul K wall mounted shelf by Systempool, Porcelanosa creates much needed storage and is made from Krion, a low maintenance material. The shelf can be mounted horizontally or vertically and has an optional container drawer.
We are also big fans of the Zest bathroom accessories range by Crosswater. They’re great quality, made from brass and zinc and finished with an easy-to-clean chrome. Best of all, the dispensers are not fixed to the holders so are easy to take off for refilling.
For Classic Bathrooms
Classic bathrooms can live in cities or the countryside in period properties. This doesn’t mean twee though and stylists for classic bathrooms recommend features such as rolltop baths and traditional double basins. Wallpapers and tongue & groove panelling in a contrasting colour can also add to the period features of the rest of the room. To complement a classic bathroom, choose ornate accessories with interesting details.
The Bastide Collection by Fired Earth is pure luxury, made from solid brass with nickel and chrome plating. As well as chrome, you can also choose Brushed Chrome, Polished Nickel and Antique Gold.
The Clifton range (left) and Heritage range (right) by Heritage Bathrooms are available in either Chrome or Vintage Gold and would make very elegant additions to a classic bathroom.
Crosswater’s chrome-plated Belgravia Collection also offer a sophisticated take on traditional accessories.
For Spa Bathrooms
The modern world leaves us needing a bathroom haven, somewhere to relax and unwind. Use square baths and clean lines to create a spa look. But even if the whole bathroom is not dedicated to zen styling, we are seeing a trend for using bathroom accessories in bamboo to create a modern spa feel. Finish off with candles and fluffy towels and you may never leave.
Fired Earth’s Bamboo Collection features the Bath Caddy (left) and the Bath Bridge Rack (right) as well as cabinets, hook, bath mats and various holders. Bamboo is a well-known hardwood, water resistant and and perfect for the bathroom.
And lastly, for a more modern spa feeling, try the practical and beautiful Escarela K ladder storage by Systempool, Porcelanosa. With three shelves and a towel rail, it is storage heaven.
