Fabulous free-standing bathtubs and compact fixtures for small spaces were among the stand-out bathroom trends on display at IDS 2017 in Toronto. we searched out the coolest new fixtures and designs for you and your next bathroom renovation. Freestanding tubs have become very popular in the past few years and the trend shows no signs of slowing down based on the offerings shown at IDS2017. Designers are presenting new finishes and shapes, as well as down-sized versions of luxurious tubs for smaller bathrooms. Native Trails showed this spectacular Santorini soaking tub, which is forged from high-quality recycled copper. Master copper smiths spend weeks crafting the textured finish with thousands of hammer strikes.
A great view definitely helps elevate a decor so if you already have a large window in the bathroom make sure you turn it into a focal point. Alternatively, you can enlarge a window or make it stand out somehow. Skylights are also awesome and they make any space look sophisticated. In the bathroom, however, they're excellent because they bring in natural light without compromising your privacy. It’s also possible to focus on having a tech-savvy bathroom. For instance, you could give it underfloor heating, a steam shower, a remote-controlled toilet, touch-controlled faucets and all sorts of other accent features. If an ultra-modern design is not really your style, you can try something a bit more bohemian and opt for things like vintage-inspired fixtures and furniture such as a small ornate table, an accent chair or a chandelier. A lot of high-end bathrooms usually offer some sort of seating such as a tufted ottoman, an armchair, a garden stool or a small sofa. If you’re going for a retro look, use brass or copper instead of chrome.
To get the vintage rest room look, use an old piece of bedroom furniture. A distressed and antique looking chest of drawers makes for a great powder room storage unit. Either cut the back away so you can run pipe work through it or cut a hole in the top to recess your wash basin. Another classic counter top look, that evokes vintage charm, is to opt for a slab of marble, set against decorative tiling. It is not for everyone, but a cozy rest room is made into an inviting place by giving it the additional function of an occasional library. A single shelf with a couple of magazines and easy reading books is enough, but if you like the idea, why not make it a mini reading room?
