Hello World! Welcome Friends! Make no mistake: the bathroom may be the smallest room in the home, but it’s also one of the most important. Bathrooms need to be functional, but this doesn’t mean you can’t use exciting new materials, innovative designs and bang on trend colors. With a bit of imagination and design flair, you can create a bathroom worthy of any celebrity residence. Here are some of the best design trends for Canadian bathrooms this year.
Industrial chic is an exciting new trend that has gained momentum in the last couple of years. Use exposed copper pipes to add a sense of utility to your bathroom. Combine this with reclaimed wood, exposed brick (use brick slips for an authentic effect), and polished concrete tiles. You don’t need a Manhattan loft apartment to make this edgy look a success.
Natural materials are very much on-trend this year. Use marble, reclaimed wood, granite, clay, and other organic materials and combine them with contemporary fixtures and fittings. Organic materials such as wood, slate and marble add an extra layer of tactile sensation to a bathroom. Wood is warm underfoot, yet works perfectly when juxtaposed against cool marble and polished concrete.
Juxtaposing natural with synthetic creates design interest. For example, use brightly colored ceramic tiles as a backdrop to a marble sink, or a contemporary standalone bath on a reclaimed timber floor. It’s the perfect combination of classic and modern.
Breathe Life into Your Bathroom
Plants are an important addition to a contemporary bathroom. Many plants love the humid atmosphere of a bathroom. They thrive in the moist heat. One or two plants are unexciting, so go a little wild and create a feature wall of effusive greenery. Build a framework of planters and turn your bathroom into a tropical garden. Your plants will love it and so will you.
Nude shades are on the rise. Grey is one of the most popular colors this year. Grey can be warm or cool, but it’s always stylish. Use grey as your main color, but combine it with stronger shades for a more interesting look. The Pantone color of the year for 2017 is Greenery, which is perfect for a contemporary bathroom. Bright shades of green and yellow contrast perfectly with darker greys.
Use metals such as brass and copper to add interest to a neutral design theme. Brass or copper taps work well when positioned against large expanses of natural marble, stone or travertine.
Avoid shiny ceramic tiles and look for matt finishes instead. Exposed brickwork, industrial cement tiles, natural travertine and slate offer a matt finish and are deliciously tactile. They are also warm underfoot if you install heated floors Calgary.
Go wild with geometry in your bathroom. There are hundreds of wonderful geometric tile designs, so play around with funky patterns on the floor or on the walls. Hexagonal designs are wonderfully popular and easy to fit. You can create endless combinations using pattern and color.
Have fun with your bathroom design. Remember, functional needn’t be boring!
Thank you for stopping by! Have a lovely day/night depending on where you are in the world! Go with God and remember to be kind to one another!
