Last year, a lot of social media sites like Pinterest exploded with interior trends. The best of these were the emerging bathroom design trends. Pictures showing off beautiful marble counters, brass fixtures, subway tiles and modern glass. The trends for 2017 seem to be just as promising.

We should expect this year to bring personality with quirky accessories, colour and texture. For example, think about combinations of statement furniture, colourful wallpaper and stylish tile patterns. All of these could easily convert an everyday room into a sanctuary.

Keep in mind that before you undergo any bathroom renovation or building project, it’s best to get expert advice from professional designers and builders.

Statement Furniture

Creating a distinctive look and feel for your bathroom doesn’t have to be difficult. It’s easily achievable with the clever use of furniture and decor. Custom designed vanities, hand painted tiles or even hand crafted lights are all fun ways. Each of these can be tailored to specifically suit your space.

The key is to avoid mass-produced items and materials and instead go for ones that are designed by individuals. Think about handcrafted stone or even exotic veneers.

Bold Colours

Splashes of colour in neutral spaces was one of the most common bathroom design trends in 2016. But this year we see colour taking over entire bathrooms. The colour of the year is Greenery, so we’re bound to see fresh hues of lime, jade and grass. All of these look great with bright white accents and brass fittings too.

Patterned Tiles

This year’s statement for tiles is patterns inspired by Moorish and Mediterranean motifs. They’re often printed handmade cement tiles and are most popular in either blue and white or black and white. The appearance adds a lot of visual appeal to white bathrooms.

Strategic Lighting

Just like in 2016, this year will have strategic lighting as a trend. With proper planning and placement, the entire look and feel of a room can be totally transformed. With LED lighting strips, you can turn your bathroom into an oasis for low cost.
