Top 7 Bathroom Trends for 2016

- Circadian LED Light Systems: “Tuning” your light fixtures to regular sleep-wake cycles, combined with natural sunlight streaming in through windows will be a primary focus in new bathroom design.
- Timber Tops: From teak shower seats to duckboard flooring, wood is looking brilliant and bringing home the organic feel under our feet, over the countertops and up the walls in the bathroom.
- Touch Tempting: From organic-looking sinks to textured walls, tactile finishes and natural stone are also in high demand.
- Oversized Tile: Big and robust tile installed in broad patterns on walls and floors is dictating a more back-to-basics composition–as opposed to the intricate tile patterns and detailed nuances previously favored.
- Dual Showerheads: The large rain showerhead paired with a hand-held is the most popular bathing option. Yet, we have seen two oversized rain showerheads featured side by side in a large stall shower– a look that fosters sharing and holds water for energy-savings, too!
- Storage Genius: Unique solutions are as aesthetically pleasing as they are functional. The fantastic creativity provides plenty of hideaway space and makes a design statement with clever clutter control in mind!
- The Clean Slate: We are seeing mostly neutral and organic hues with accents of blue and green. A wall of color or a few natural green plants are high on the list for customizing a harmonious balance.
The color on the walls in your bathroom can influence your mood. A soft green in a bathroom can aid digestion, while blue, linked to flowing rivers, seas and lakes, is said to keep the water in the room flowing swiftly, which is beneficial.”
