Whether you’re wanting to add a few stylish updates, or planning a full bathroom renovation, there are trends to be set, and trends to be followed. If you’ve been wondering what bathrooms will be wearing in the year of 2013 – then you’ve come to the right place, here is the forecast for the hottest bathroom trends of 2013.
Tiles set the centre stage
If you decide to use tiles on your walls, floors, or as splashbacks, eye-catching tiles are going to be taking centre stage in 2013 trends and bathroom designs. 2013 notes that large format tiles are becoming increasingly popular and tiles which emulate other materials such as stone, concrete or wood are on high demand. If you want your tiles in keeping with the new trends try tiles with a large prints, which will create a feature for your white pristine bathroom. Porcelain tiles still remain the tile choice for the top-end bathrooms, while state-of-the-art printing techniques have allowed ceramic tiles to hold their own place.
Dim lighting and dingy bathrooms are ghosts of the past. The upcoming 2013 bathroom trends are to fill your bathroom with as much light as possible, preferably natural sunlight. This is easily done by installing larger windows and sunroofs. If a sunroof isn’t an option, all the manmade light should be soft and diffused. A well-lit will offer an inviting and happy atmosphere.
The futures bright, the futures…?
With whites, off-whites, browns, beiges and greys being the order of the day, nothing has really changed. However, these are now complimented with vibrant colours, such as fresh lime green, oranges, even icy blues, in small quantities. Small accessories such as rugs, towels and soap dispensers are a great way to cheaply add this little bit of modern fashion without making extreme changes.
The quest to be the trend setter of 2013 is set, and that’s to emulate spa-like luxuries in residential bathrooms. What is considered a five star luxury in the past, has now become a commonplace expectancy Under floor heating, waterproof speakers, ambiance lighting and Jacuzzis, oversized shower heads now hold a place in 2013’s luxury bathrooms. A modern bathroom is just not complete without these added little luxuries.
The ultimate way to tie together the latest bathroom design aspects for 2013 is by following the growing trend of creating your very own spa-like experience. Bathrooms are no longer just an area of convenience, where you can wash and ready yourself for the day ahead, but remember, this is your space, so chose your tastes and the style you like.
