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.
In the bathroom, space is at a premium. Every square inch, on the floors, walls, and even ceiling, plays an important part in increasing or diminishing the functionality and aesthetics of the space. That’s why an accurate study of the users’ lives will play an important role in striking the perfect design balance for the bathroom layout. Of course, there are also regulations and standard requirements for spatial constraints (for example, a toilet requires a certain amount of space around it and in front of it, as does a sink, the tub, shower, etc.).
Ideally, a large shower window or glass wall would open up the bathroom to a private garden. This way privacy is not an issue and you can also control exactly what you see from in there and you can create a very zen and fresh decor. What if you want natural light in your shower/ bathroom but there's no way you can make a full-height window work? Perhaps a skylight can be an option or perhaps you could opt for a long, horizontal window just under the ceiling. It`s hight enough to offer total privacy and to let you have solid walls but it still serves as a source of natural light.
