Washroom Trends 2017

2017 is in full swing, so it’s time to start planning any renovation work for the year ahead. Think your washrooms are in need of a revamp to create a more on-trend design? You might need to increase the capacity of your bathrooms, and at the same time crave a new décor. You don’t even have to invest too much money or time in order to follow some of this year’s washroom trends. Take a look at some of the ways you can improve your public bathrooms for the year ahead.

Metallics

Shiny interiors are a growing trend across all rooms – you won’t have to visit many city cocktail bars or hotels to find brass light fittings or copper accessories everywhere. The industrial aesthetic is moving to a more distressed look, as opposed to the high shine of most metals. This love for metallic can easily be brought into the washrooms for a deluxe feel.

Geometric tiles

When it comes to tiles, shapes are making a comeback in 2017. If you’re going to go for a geometric design then it’s important to keep the colours muted as to not go overboard. After all, a bathroom should be a relaxing environment and not create a garish atmosphere.

Chemical-free air fresheners

It can be really difficult to keep washrooms smelling fresh, and many commercial premises turn to traditional air fresheners. While these tend to do the job, they can have negative health effects and are extremely flammable. We are starting to see a range of chemical-free alternatives which are just as effective, such as odour control systems using essential oils. As these are much healthier for your staff and customers we’re bound to see a surge in these heavenly smelling air care systems.

Greenery

A huge trend for 2017 is creating an organic and natural feel, usually by bringing the outside in. You can easily apply this trend to washrooms by adding as much greenery as possible. Potted plants by the sinks and mini succulents on shelves are very popular at the moment. Breathe some life into your bathroom!

Dark colours

There are many reasons for using dark colours in bathrooms. It creates a luxurious feel if you have grey or black tiles and walls, and is much easier to maintain. The only problem with using lots of dark colours is making sure the room has enough light.

Follow these trends and you’ll have washrooms to remember!
