New Year brings new beginnings. With that in mind, the living space that has been getting most attention recently is without doubt the bathroom. Once, just a simple wash room and nothing more, today the bathroom has become one of the focal points of residential design. It is here that people reconnect to their bodies and spend some precious time on themselves. And this is how the bathroom has become a temple of relaxation and well-being.
For this space to fully achieve that, though, a number of exciting solutions must be found to make it both aesthetically satisfying and highly practical.
Sanitary fixtures should also be ultralight and discreet, so they don’t have to match at all costs. Basins, toilets and bidets are now usually seen as independent style elements, preferably equipped with all available comforts. These include ergonomic seats that heat up when you move near them and silent technology that automatically siphons off any unpleasant odors.
This clearly indicates that one of the key factors in recent home furnishing trends is comfort.
Another factor that is evident is modularity. Tailor made is the new religion, so all furnishings must offer an ample color range and numerous finishes that will fit not only the style of individual homes, but also the tastes of those who live there.
Classic black and white remains popular, but there are also a number of new colors to the home furnishing party. These focus particularly on tones that have been subtly transformed by Nature, like bleached wood, earth and sand.
This trend continues into the floor and wall tile sector where ceramics now offer the same natural appeal as wood and all the fascinating uniqueness of its timeworn knots and grains.
