Supplied

A room often forgotten about it when it comes to interior design, bathrooms have a massive amount of design potential. We discover the top trends for your bathroom, from colour and textures to materials and fittings.

Millennial Pink

bathroom trend Forget those mumsy offerings of the 1950s – the next generation of pink bathrooms is subtle, sophisticated and incredibly current. If you prefer white porcelain, pair yours with a blush-toned feature wall and copper accents, as seen in this Cuna bath in White with steel frame in Copper finish by Patricia Urquiola for Agape. Available at Lavo Bathroom Concepts for R137 940.

Marbled Black

bathroom trend Black bathrooms are still a major trend, only this time around, matt finishes have been replaced with marbled versions. Experiment with inky tiles and accessories, or make a grand statement with marbled sanware, such as this In-Out freestanding bath in Nero Marquina marble by Benedini Associati for Agape. Available at Lavo Bathroom Concepts for R427 500.

Light Wood

bathroom trend The natural look is big in interiors, and that extends to your bathroom. From wall panels for insulation to textured units for storage, wood adds warmth and interest to a space, as seen in Geberitʼs new iCon bathroom series (below), with its illuminated mirror, two-tap basin, two-drawer vanity unit and tall cabinet, all in Natural Oak.

Gilded Malachite

bathroom trend Reminiscent of Victorian bathrooms and vintage glamour, brushed gold and emerald green is a winning colour combination. Get the look with lush foliage, faux-stone wallcoverings and brass fittings, such as this Liberty I wall lamp in brass and crystal glass with gold-plated finish - available at Luxxu.
