While Eurocucina was the focus of this year`s Salone del Mobile in Milan, the annual International Bathroom Exhibition was also a draw. We found quite of few bathroom trends that can bring the latest innovations to your space, making this part of the house even more inviting. Sustainability was a strong theme among innovations, highlighting water efficiency, energy-saving technologies, and personal health. All these underlying concepts were combined with the latest visual and experiential elements to create a spa-like personal wellness space. Sure, the bathroom serves some very basic human purposes, but that doesn`t mean it can`t be comfortable and stylish as well. From fixtures to materials and added functions, these 20 new designs were trending. There’s no better place in the house for plants than in the bathroom: The moist, often humid environment is perfect for living greenery and they add a relaxing dose of nature to the space. Not only are plants visually pleasing, but they reduce levels of carbon dioxide and other pollutants in the air, cut down on airborne dust, and can even help keep air temperature down. This bathroom trend can be a major feature, as in these bathrooms by Duravit from IdeaGroup, or be an accent. Either way, plants in the bathroom can make it feel more serene and relaxing.
The way in which the bathroom colors are displayed in important too. A lot of times, geometric patterns are created using tiles. If you’re not a fan of tiled walls there‘s also the option to paint the walls or to create interesting murals. Bathroom wallpaper can be an option too, although moisture may pose problems. If you're aiming for a dramatic visual impact, give your bathroom a special kind of focal point: an entire wall showcasing a cool mural or an oversized painting. Don‘t think of your bathroom as merely a utilitarian space. Give it the touch of elegance and luxury that you would normally focus on when designing the living room.
Of course, new bathroom designs are not limited to shallow square basins. For those who want a dramatic piece, large artful sinks made from all sorts of luxury materials are available. This conical, extra tall basin is from Stone Forest is matched by a tall, modern faucet from Franz Viegener. The single-handled faucet is the best choice for a tall basin like this one, where users might otherwise have to fumble around to reach the knobs. The drama of a tall faucet also enhances the vertical styling of the basin. A rich copper basin is a warm choice and it can be paired with either a traditional faucet mounted on the vanity or with more streamlined fixtures mounted on the wall. Here, the faucet options are from the Inciso Collection by Gessi. The choice of wall versus vanity mounting is driven by not only by visual preference but also by considerations of space and function. In a powder room, wall-mounted fixtures can save precious inches when space is at a premium.
