2016 bathroom trends go bold for the new year

1 Chevron tiles and gold plumbing

Standard subway tile is getting a fresh makeover with 2016’s hottest tile trend. “Chevron tiles are huge for bathrooms this year, either on the floor or walls,” says Shirley. “Contrasting grout really helps to highlight tile patterns, and white or dark tiles look great paired with the trendy gold plumbing that’s popping up everywhere.”

2 Carved stone

It’s all about luxury when it comes to bathrooms this year, with traditional pedestal sinks and porcelain tubs making way for more intricate styles. “Sinks and bathtubs carved out of stone are a super luxe bathroom detail that has been showing up all over the place,” says Shirley. “The travertine stone here is becoming popular again, only this time it has a less tumbled earthy look - with its razor sharp edges, this stone is suddenly modern again.”

3 Statement art

The bathroom is one of the most used rooms in the home, so why not add some personality to the space with your favourite artwork? “Statement art can be a major update for your bathroom, and in 2016 we’ll be seeing pieces that are really colourful or oversized,” says Shirley. “This bright graphic painting makes a big impact in the master bathroom.”

4 Round mirrors

Sometimes all it takes is a fresh update to a standard classic in order to revive a dated space. “Round mirrors are replacing the traditional rectangular shape we’re used to seeing in a bathroom, adding a dynamic, unexpected graphic focal point,” says Shirley. “Pair them with hanging pendant lights or wall sconces on either side, taking the opportunity to mix the blacks and golds that are so hot for 2016.”

5 Space-saving layouts

“Creative bathroom layouts are always current, especially in small spaces or urban condos,” says Shirley. “Placing a stand-alone tub inside an open shower is a great space saving technique and is a modern update on the standard shower-tub combo.”
