What better place to kick off our bathroom trend celebrations than with the black and white beauty achieved in monochrome bathroom designs? This style is a chance for you to harken back to a simpler yet just as decadent time in bathroom design and feel like a silent movie star every time you slip into your stunning new black and white bathroom.
The monochrome bathroom is one aesthetic that is as much in the mind as it is in the bathroom around you – and we at Drench cannot get enough of this timeless bathroom trend.
Dive into monochromatic delight and draw your black and white bathroom together with a stunning signature piece such as this stunning Vellamo Matt Black Framed Adjustable Height 8mm Easy Clean Wetroom Panel.
It features a telescopic adjustable frame reaching up to 2.4metres in height to suit the tallest of bathrooms and is constructed of 8mm toughened glass with Acqua Shield coating for superbly simple cleaning. Pricing starts at just £269.99 for an 800mm glass panel width and concludes at just £369.98 for a visually impressive 1200mm option, with 900 and 1000mm options in between. It also comes with Vellamo’s bulletproof lifetime guarantee – the only thing tougher than its impressive glass construct.
The subtlety of black and white bathrooms enables you to make design statements of real volume without doing anything too outlandish. And why not top the scene off in ultimate style with a single red rose upon the vanity unit or some other sultry touch?
You can discover other black and white bathroom brilliance by Vellamo and many more designers experimenting with modern monochrome bathroom magic right here.
What a strong and stylish start to this feature on undying bathroom trends – wherever might we go from here?
Industrial design bathrooms exhibit one of the hottest bathroom trends out there right now, instigated by our ongoing focus on modern, minimal apartment spaces, as well as our undying love for anything industrial and space-age.
Industrial bathrooms boast subdued function in the most stylish format, featuring statement looks that are often punctuated by rustic furniture choices and dark, subdued colour schemes. Blended with brightness in intermittent flashes through bathroom unit detailing and decorations, the result is an urban design melody providing a homely pizzazz in a unique Bauhaus manner.
We could go on all day about industrial bathroom designs – and would you believe it, we already have! So if you’d like to discover in more detail just how you can create a memorable industrial bathroom design, why not take a look at our article explaining the key features of industrial design and how to use them?
Perhaps it is a totally new concept for you, or perhaps you just need the final nudge to carry out your overdue desires to leap into the exhilarating world of industrial bathroom design.
Head over to our article to discover some of Drench’s finest industrial aesthetic products like our Crosswater MPro Floorstanding Bath and Shower Mixer Tap available in brushed stainless steel at just £714.98. It uses ceramic disc technology to end dripping and leaks for good, is fully WRAS approved and comes with a 15 year manufacturer guarantee, or our incredibly slick BC Designs Classic Roll Top Copper Boat Bath for £2699.99. Just look at that specimen!
And as the trend toward high-rise, modern apartment spaces grows, it is not only industrial bathroom designs that maintain and add to their market relevance. It is also minimal bathroom designs that provide a key modern appeal to bathroom designers. And why not?
Minimalism is a fantastic feature to focus on when working with any smaller-sized bathroom as it provides a valuable manner of best managing the space available to you, and the appearance of that space in the most complimentary manner. This is one area in which less can definitely be more!
Minimal bathroom designs are also a wonderful way to intelligently draw attention to a specific facet – be it a fancy mirror, plant, family heirloom or freestanding classic bath. Just keep your bathroom tidy and free of clutter and you’re halfway to having a minimal bathroom aesthetic already!
Speaking of mirrors, augment your minimalist bathroom with one of our very best in this Bathroom Origins City Rectangular Mirror in Black. At just £159.98, this subtle stainless steel pane can be mounted in landscape or portrait and makes a wonderful addition to minimalist bathrooms of any size with its understated impressiveness.
Just head here to check out our full range of mirrors – be warned, there is more than a few to choose from!
The Hotel Look
Following on fruitfully from our minimalist bathroom aesthetic, we have the hotel look bathroom.
A big part of having a hotel bathroom vibe is keeping your bathroom gleaming clean to maintain that fresh, new, not-lived-in feel – that is why it is a suitable extension from our minimalist focus. But to achieve that hotel vibe, you will also want to add a select spread of decadent items that shout luxury louder than you could ever raise your voice.
A fantastic example is this Crosswater MPro Wall Mounted Basin Mixer Tap in Brushed Brass, available now for just £236.99. This stunning golden mixer tap would look right at home in any five star hotel, and now in your home too! The colours on this thing beyond pop…
Few things define hotel luxury more so than gold wall-mounted taps. And of course, they perform just as slick as they look. With ceramic disc technology, an adjustable spout and precise lever control, each use will transport you into a land of luxury. Which is exactly what you want when using a hotel bathroom!
What kind of bathroom trend celebration would this be if we did not touch upon the marvel that is marble? It is one of the most sought-after materials by design enthusiasts in any field – and bathroom aficionados are no exception to the rule!
It is such an adaptable material that can provide the pinnacle finish for a space-age industrial bathroom just as it can supplement the traditional bathroom of a regal manor house with some esteemed style.
Line your new bathroom design with an illustrious finish in the form of this Bauhaus Glide II 100 Wall Mounted Unit and Marble Worktop available from just £889.98. Bauhaus is synonymous with the apex of luxury bathroom products and this stunning marble piece is one of their finest spectacles, if we do say so ourselves.
Featuring soft close function and six fine finishes including American Walnut, Storm Grey and Windsor Oak, Bauhaus has implemented its Carrara Veined marble for a highly heat and dust resistant finish that is as easy to clean as it is sanitary in the first place.
With pieces like this, it’s not surprising that everyone’s losing their marbles over marble bathrooms.
From one iconic bathroom material to another – bathroom tiles are trendier than ever. The general direction is exhibiting larger and darker tiles that continue to tie in perfectly with a range of bathroom aesthetics. Larger tiles not only look incredibly slick – they are also far easier to clean!
If you are in the market for some new bathroom tiles then we highly recommend you check out the wonderful pieces being put out by our friends over at Tile Mountain. You could – and we endorse that you do – spend all day cruising their selection of impeccable tiles, but we have picked out one here that is a favourite amongst the Drench team when it comes to recommending our customers the very best tiles.
These Doblo Matt Grey Porcelain Tiles come in a 598x598mm sizing and are a sure way to cover your bathroom walls in pure class. You can’t have a bathroom without some tiling, right? Well, do it right with some of these sleek pieces.
The bathroom mirror is no longer just a mirror. Confused? Well, bear with us. Now, mirrors will always be an essential part of a bathroom – how else can you monitor yourself during your various grooming processes? But technology has caught up with mirrors and now a simple pane they need no longer be.
As well as using mirrors as a piece of focal artwork in your bathroom, you can also use mirrors equipped with a ridiculous amount of technology. Some will champion the simplicity of their mirrors – until they give these a go! We’re talking automatically demisting, LED-lit, Bluetooth-equipped – yes, the humble bathroom mirror has evolved.
Check out this Harbour Glow LED Mirror with Demister Pad and Shaver Socket for just £289.99, featuring a touch-free infra-red on/off sensor to automatically bathe you in LED brilliance and switch off to save power when you exit in style.
We also have this Roper Rhodes LED Illuminated Beat Mirror with Bluetooth Speaker System for just £310.00. That’s right, it’s not a misprint – bathroom mirrors now come with wireless speaker connectivity. No more mouldy old DAB radios or testing your smartphone’s waterproof claims!
That Wonderful Wood Effect
We finish off this joyous bathroom trend feature with the wood bathroom effect. There is just something so clean and invigorating about a bathroom based around wood – and as a material it just works with everything due to the numerous types of wood finish you can get.
Whether a dark wood to round off your grey industrial cloakroom bathroom or a wonderful bright oak spread to add extra light to your brilliant white bathroom – that wonderful wood effect is all you need.
Finish your contemporary bathroom with items such as this Bauhaus Glide II 100 Wall Hunt Vanity Unit with Basin (right) in decadent Driftwood finish, providing stunning modern handleless design with a choice of ceramic or cast mineral marble basin, soft close Blum drawer runners and a five year guarantee for just £789.97. It’s also available in four other finishes such as Wenge and White Gloss, providing the ultimate full stop for any minimalist or monochrome bathroom.
