THE TOP 10 TRENDS IN BATHROOM DESIGN FOR 2016

From double sinks to architectural details and contemporary, sculptural pieces, The Resident picks out 2016’s top 10 trends for bathroom design 

Story: Kara O’Reilly

1 Double sinks
Double sinks are the ultimate in luxe bathroom fittings and this eye-catching vanity unit is no exception. It’s from the new range created by influential restaurant designer, Martin Brudnizki, for Drummonds.

4 Sculptural pieces 
Prefer a more modern look? The Feel range by K-Stone, exclusive to CP Hart, proves that the key elements of every bathroom – sink, bath and loo – can work well as sculptural pieces. Feel bath, from £4,758; matching freestanding hand basin, £1,530, and back-to-wall WC, £1,254, all cphart.co.uk

5 Salvage chic
The upcycled industrial look is still going strong. Think salvaged pieces and quirky touches, such as these mis-matched taps, for a way of pulling together an individual look. Urban towels, from £8 each, lexingtoncompany.com

6 Statement sink
If you have the space, then go all out with a generous statement sink that has plenty of surface area for all your essentials. Ring the changes with a wood-panelled splashback in place of tiles. Arrezzi basin with stand, from £1,522, albionbathco.com

7 Good angles
Setting the bath at a jaunty angle allows the owners of this neat en suite to still incorporate a bath in the space – and for the addition of a generous light-reflecting feature mirror behind. Bathroom design, price on request, westonebathrooms.com 

8 Empire styling
Dark enamelled cast-iron baths, with a whiff of Empire styling about them, are the current bath look of choice. Atlantic enamelled cast-iron bath in Top Hat, £4,395; Atlantic cabinet and basin in Wenge, £1,750; East Hampton white marble floor tiles, £115 per sq m; all other items, from a selection, all firedearth.com

9 Statement shower
The statement shower has arrived. Make the most of it being a contained space and use it as a way to introduce bold pattern. Henry unlacquered brass lever-handle thermostat, from £2,812; Henry unlacquered brass gooseneck wall-mounted shower rose, £1,843, all other items, from a selection, uk.waterworks.com

10 Feature bathtub
Make more of your bath as a key feature by placing it in the centre of the room. A classic ball-and-claw design lends itself to this approach. Add freestanding furniture and on-trend colours to keep the look contemporary. Rimini cast-iron bath, £1,140; Tradition bath tap, £499, and Carlton Pedestal basin, £561, all astonmatthews.co.uk
