A bathroom is supposed to be a warm, inviting and relaxing environment. In fact, even when the temperature begins to drop outside, these spaces should still be a place to escape to after a day of being out in the cold.
However, if you wish your bathroom could be more cosy, it’s not too late to refresh the design. Even some small changes can have a profound impact on the comfort of your bathroom over the winter months.
Here are three design trends that can transform your bathroom.
1) Add warmth to your bathroom through colour
One of the best ways to improve the feel of your bathroom or ensuite is to give the walls a makeover. Whether this is a fresh coat of paint or some new wallpaper, bringing in hues of smoke grey or deep green can add warmth and depth to those chilly winter months.

A great example to test out would be the Pantone Colour of the Year for 2017, Greenery. This “refreshing and revitalising” shade is a play on those first days of spring “when nature’s greens revive, restore and renew.”
A designer’s brief needs to check off the client’s wishlist and all the pertinent information relating to the requirements of the desired project. So, how is a design brief created and what makes a good one?
Building the right draft
A design brief starts with a basic draft. This pinpoints the best layout for the space available, and will ultimately become the backbone for the creation of a functionally safe and aesthetically pleasing bathroom.
All bathrooms need mirrors, and an extra large mirror doubles the look and feel of any small space. A strategically placed mirror is also very effective positioned above a vanity or along side a narrow bathroom.
Vertical mirrors give a sense of raised height whereas horizontal mirrors widen the space. The larger the mirror, the more it reflects light. Wall-to-wall frameless mirrors are a nod to the 90s, whereas framed or smaller mirrors are a more contemporary look.
Forget bulky vanity units. Swapping floor cabinets with off the floor, wall-hung cabinets free-up valuable floor area. It creates the perception of a bigger space especially if floor tiles are large and long. Floating bathroom vanities are the ‘in’ trend of the times. Consider the weight of the unit when it’s mounted to the wall, especially if it has a stone top.
