Tap into the new bathroom trends set to make the biggest impact on the interior design sector and then discover the products that will help refresh your wet rooms in this season’s styles.
TREND: Maximalism for bold interiors
What is it? Embrace a combination of colours, textures and intricate patterns into designs for a bathroom that wows guests every time. The more layered the better; patterned vessels with contrasting brassware, ornate tiles and luxurious fabrics can all be used across a spectrum of tones and patterns to create an opulent, on-trend finish.
Product: The Dutchmaster Artist Editions vessel basin in Midnight Floral from KOHLER is named after the painterly style that inspired this vessel’s pattern. The designs explore dramatic botanicals in lavish and moody hues, for a striking and bold finish.
Midnight Floral gives a deep, moody hue with a contrast of colours from Hellebores, Fritillaries, Ranunculus and Sweet Pea flowers against an onyx backdrop.
Available in both rectangle and round designs, Dutchmaster captures the movement and beauty of florals and invites curiosity whilst demanding attention.

TREND: Embracing the dark side
What is it? Emma Joyce, communications manager at Victoria & Albert Baths UK, says: “We’ve noticed a strong demand for darker tones in the bathroom such as matt black, gloss black and anthracite. Black bathroom products immediately bring a modern, grown up aesthetic to the bathroom and we don’t see the trend going away anytime soon.”
Product: The Barcelona 2 follows the same design aesthetic as the popular Barcelona bath, inspired by the city famous for its organic design, but with more compact dimensions.
The Barcelona 2 features a void space underneath for waste plumbing.
The bathtub can be coordinated with the Barcelona 48, Barcelona 55 or Barcelona 64 freestanding basins and are available in seven different exterior finishes. Victoria + Albert Baths is famous for its QUARRYCAST material, made from a blend of Volcanic Limestone and high-performance resins in its wholly owned factories in South Africa.

TREND: Striking black finishes
What is it? Ellie Sawdy, brand leader at Bisque UK says: “Matt Black is back and stronger than ever. This bold colour is prefect for the grey interiors we see in design. It allows you to follow the trend while still adding a statement to your interior designer. Matt black has a luxury appeal about it and is certainly a head turner.”
Product: Bisque has launched Matt Black finishes on many its radiators, starting with the Bisque classic radiator. This school style rad comes in vertical or horizontal options. Bisque has matched it with brass valves to add a timeless look. The brass also allows it to keep its traditional look. If you fancy something more modern you could opt for chrome valves. In addition to the high quality finishes and hidden air vent, Bisque’s Deline radiator has mounted brackets on the back of the towel rail.

What is it? Combining a pared-back nature-inspired palette with botanical patterns to enliven spaces of all sizes.
