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 look of bathroom fixtures is also changing with the advent of new technologies. Unusual, architectural designs are more widely available. This one from Kohler looks like a modern line drawing, with the bulk of the fixture erased. It’s an intriguing design that still has plenty of water flowing from the tap, just as an ordinary faucet does. designs like this allow homeowners to be more creative in coming up with a bathroom design that expresses their personalities and adding interest to this hardworking space. Freestanding bathtubs have been all the rage in recent years, replacing the mammoth built-in jacuzzi tubs of decades past. Now, within the freestanding category, there are different types available. This new model from Villeroy & Boch sits on a chrome base, lifting the height of the tub and lightening up its footprint in the bathroom design. Similarly, the wall mounted toilet, where the tank and plumbing are secreted within the wall, is a streamline option. Even if space is plentiful, the wall-mounted toilet is a sleeker option than one with a hulking tank attached.
What about tiny shower windows? Well, that`s an option too. Check out this intriguing bathroom layout featured on marydewaltdesigngroup. The shower is positioned in the corner, framing the tub which gives the room a pretty symmetrical look. There are four tiny windows in the shower, high enough to maintain privacy. When it comes down to choosing an option, the decision should be made in relation to the unique particularities of the bathroom and the shower. That being said, it`s possible to combine two or more of the ideas we just presented, much like in the case of this stylish bathroom which has a direct connection to a garden and a set of clerestory windows.
