This year sees us being more brave with our interiors and particularly our bathrooms.

Bright pattern and imagery has pushed away subtle shades and plain tiling. It’s all about going maxamilist in your bathroom this year.

Wallpaper from westonebathrooms.com

An option that is growing in popularity is wall murals, be it on tiles or wallpaper. Although these can be quite expensive to have made to measure, the effect is dramatic and so worth it. The go to pattern is still florals, which you can understand as they create the drama at the same time bringing a softness to a room.

If you are feeling brave look at painting tiles yourself or getting an artist to commission something special.

An alternative to tiles is waterproof wallpaper which can give you the same tile like effect to look at but it’s much simpler to put up. West One Bathrooms do a beautiful range of wallpapers.

Trends have changed a lot across the last decade in bathrooms. No longer are designs so traditional and pieces purely designed for a bathroom.

It’s now about furniture that makes a statement and allows the room to feel more like any other – considered, with thought and more than just a ceramic sink and toilet in a tiled room.

Interiors trends of minimal, maximalist, monochrome, traveller, midcentury, mosaic, herringbone, black – are all trends we see translating into the design of the bathroom.

When it comes to picking the vanity unit it’s about the style and design, the practicality and function, and also now we have a far broader range of furniture to choose from – and even growing in popularity is using furniture pieces that aren’t for a bathroom but converting them to work. Typically midcentury sideboard work incredibly well. The shape lends itself to working well, with good counter area and storage space in the form of draws and/or cupboards.

Consider balance of the size of furniture in the room as bathrooms aren’t often the biggest of rooms. Choose a mirror that suits the style of the unit and is not to over powering in size to dominate the room.
