From matte finishes to a monochrome colour scheme, soak.com rounds up top 2019 interior trends for your bathroom.
Soft Industrial & Concrete Bathrooms
The soft industrial look is still going strong but who is surprised when there’s so much to pick and choose from to create your look. When you break down what makes this trend so impressive, you will see concrete, terracotta’s, bold patterned pastel terrazzo, pale/weathered woods, hand blown glass and unrefined metals. But it doesn’t stop there – in the summer months, you’ll see the introduction of matte black metals (which look stunning in bathrooms and kitchens) plants, wire frame furniture and natural/nude finishes alongside wicker and stone washed stripes.
Matte finishes will be everywhere - whether it’s in a deep navy kitchen unit, a black tap or pastel furniture unit, the matte finish is as versatile as it is stylish. Matte finishes are multifaceted as they possess both a fresh and warm finish to them. This is because they can be crisp and soft and looking whilst avoiding the sterile, cold feeling that can often happen with metals and polished finishes. Matte is a great finish to have in a bathroom as it will definitely help relax and warm up a harsh Monday morning bathroom!
Whether it’s black on black or black on white, black taps and metal work are going to be around for a bit longer… The old fear of monochrome looking boring or being too stark is officially a thing of the past! Black and white is deservingly dramatic, refreshing and relaxing all at the same time. You can initiate balance by combining monochrome with natural stone and greenery to create a more comfortable feel for the everyday home.
If you’re looking for a trend that is a little bit ‘out there’, especially in your bathroom, we’d take it back to the 80’s (and no, we don’t mean bright neon’s and legwarmers!) We’re loving sharp geometrics, bold colours - and even bolder colour blocks – simple, almost childlike, patterns and shapes such as stripes, dots, triangles and circles. Mix that alongside grid work and the power combo of iridescent contrasting against colourful matte finishes, and you create a dreamy, yet dynamic trend that will always keep you on your toes.
