2015 will bring some exciting new trends to bathroom and interior design. We take a look at the furniture, fixtures, fittings and gadgets set to be at the forefront of this year’s contemporary designs.
It’s all about style and function for 2015’s must-have bathroom products. Innovative ideas will see furniture offering more than just practicality, with technology introducing features such as touch-sensitive lighting, speakers and blue tooth.
We’ll see a move away from clear class for cabinets and shower screens, with smoked and tinted becoming favored alternatives. At the forefront of design demands, high gloss and mirrored finishes will be replaced with sumptuous skin and tone textures.
Increasingly popular, in both appeal and practicality, are sinks with vanity units and twin sinks – particularly for families or in luxury large en-suite bathrooms.
With people becoming ever-concerned about sustainability, environmentally friendly products will be prevalent, so we’ll see water-saving taps, toilets and showers, as well as low-energy LED lighting breaking through in this year’s chic designs.
As baths decline in popularity, lavish showers will feature strongly in design considerations – particularly where space doesn’t allow for both. Continuing to emerge as the ultimate luxury feature piece, however, is the freestanding bath, closely followed by frameless and walk-in shower enclosures.
Again, technology dominates, with ‘smart-phone’ showers offering the epitome of up-to-the minute digital remote control over water flow, temperature and even shower head lighting. Colour-changing taps offer instant mood setting, with infrared sensors allowing flow control and temperature change indicators.
Lighting will be creative, for atmosphere enhancement, with white and coloured waterproof LED lighting being seen everywhere from cabinets to walls and floors. And, for the ultimate indulgence, 2015 will see the redefinition of the toilet, as state-of-the-art ‘smart toilets’ arrive, offering washing and warm-air drying.
Underfloor heating continues to thrive as a necessity, rather than a luxury, as bathrooms become more of a tranquil, spa-inspired area, with consumers demanding serenity and warmth.
So much choice can be overwhelming – at Room H2o we have specialist bathroom designers who can guide you to your perfect haven of tranquility.
