Innovative Products on the Horizon

Innovations from manufacturers are shaping the bathroom landscape, catering to diverse tastes and  emerging colour trends.

  1. Hotel & Spa Elegance: The desire for a tranquil and mentally soothing space keeps the hotel and  spa style in vogue for 2024. Key elements include freestanding baths, understated colour schemes,  marble details, and minimalist designs.
  2. Coloured Ceramics Make a Statement: Personalised bathroom spaces are in demand, leading to  an increased use of colour in ceramics. While classic shades like matt black remain popular, there’s a  noticeable shift towards softer hues.

  4. The Rise of Walk-In Showers and Wetrooms: The debate between showers and baths continues,  with walk-in showers and Wetrooms gaining the upper hand, thanks to their convenience and  modern appeal.
  5. Compact Freestanding Baths for Smaller Spaces: With space at a premium in British homes,  smaller, space-efficient freestanding baths are becoming the norm.
  6. The Hygienic Appeal of Rimless Toilets: The trend towards rimless toilets is driven by their ease of  cleaning and improved hygiene, making them a new standard in modern bathrooms.
  7. Increased Storage Solutions: Responding to the need for more organised spaces, there’s a shift  towards more storage options, with fitted cabinets making a comeback.
  8. Minimalism Remains a Key Feature: Minimalist designs continue to be popular, with an emphasis  on uncluttered spaces, clean lines, and hidden storage solutions.

  1. Botanicals & Natural Woods: Topping the colour trend list, this scheme includes a range of greens,  blues, browns, and whites, drawing inspiration from nature and promoting relaxation.
  2. Warm Metals Over Chrome: Warm metal finishes are increasingly preferred over traditional  chrome, adding a touch of luxury and warmth.
  3. Matt Finishes Gain Popularity: Matt finishes are shedding their reputation for dulling colours, now  favoured for their sophisticated and understated appeal.
  4. Greys and Anthracites Stay Strong: Grey and anthracite continue to be popular choices, fitting well  into both minimalist and more adventurous colour schemes.

5.The Rise of Brushed Satin: This finish, especially on heating products, combines a matt colour with  a brushed effect for a luxurious and stylish look.

  1. Moody and Masculine Colours: Darker colours, industrial accents, and a ‘moody’ aesthetic are  becoming increasingly popular in bathroom design.
