Here’s what’s popular in the world of bathrooms


Did you know that a bathroom is the second biggest selling feature of a home? Well, regardless of whether or not you want to sell your home, it’s really worth remodeling your bathroom to suit today’s designer trends.

As bathrooms are no longer just a wash and go rooms, designing your bathroom to be more stylish, comfortable, hygienic and aesthetically pleasing should be at the top of your to-do list. Afterall, with all the “hustling and bustling” we do in the day, you deserve a place of absolute beauty and relaxation – you deserve a luxurious bathroom.

The sky’s the limit when it comes to designing your bathroom! You can come up with your very own unique bathroom ideas or get some inspiration from some of our favourite modern bathroom trends:

Let there be light

When it comes to bathroom lighting, most interior designers will harp on and on about natural lighting… And they have reason to. There’s something warming, calming and soothing about natural lighting in a bathroom. But adding luxurious lighting to your bathroom can also bring your bathroom to life.

Modern lighting solutions for bathrooms include dimmable lights, colour lighting, feature lighting and LED strips around mirrors or shelves.

Let there be life!

Add a pop of colour and freshness to your bathroom with one or a few plants. The humid environment of a bathroom is ideal for quite a few types of plants, namely:

  • Aloe Vera
  • Cast Iron Plant
  • Begonia
  • Boston Fern
  • Bamboo
  • Dracaena
  • Peace Lily
  • Orchid
  • Chinese Evergreen
  • Dieffenbachia
  • Ivy
  • Philodendron
  • Pothos

Embrace natural materials

Organic materials create a sense of coziness mixed with elegance. If you have a creative flair in you, here’s where you can go all out  and add a contemporary feel to your bathroom. If you’re considering new flooring for your bathroom, take a look at amazing bamboo flooring.

Play with darker colours

Dark, moody, natural materials, such as dark woods, tiling and other finishes, can create a dynamic look and feel to the private space. If used effectively, dark colours can enhance the feeling of absolute relaxation and luxury in your bathroom. You can mix your darker colours with pale greens and blues, and even experiment with a few splashes of bold colours to add a little fun to the bathroom.


Big, bold and beautiful tiles

Big tiles are not only trending because of the beautiful, unique style they bring into bathrooms but also because they are easier to clean and don’t collect as much grout as smaller tiles. Bigger tiles are available in a variety of materials and sizes, like 400×400 cm, 400800 cm, 333×550 cm, etc.
