Bathroom Makeovers - what's new for 2019?

If you are looking to address your Chigwell, Loughton or Woodford bathrooms or plan to move into Chigwell, Loughton or Woodford to get yourself some more classy bathrooms take note. 

"The spa-inspired bathroom trend has officially returned–back to the spa, that is. These days it's all about bold, dark, sultry bathroom designs that evoke an indulgent high-end experience," says designer Kesha Franklin. This sentiment is supported by Young Huh, "we’re seeing that people no longer see the bath as a utilitarian space and more as an experiential space. They’re looking for spa-like experiences as well as a kind of theatrical beauty for what used to be a very interior and private space." 

So when you are thinking about your ideal bathroom it’s - "No more tiled, grouted shower floors and visible drains! Beautiful plumbing fixtures still deserve to shine, but the pedestrian drain is becoming invisible: now walk-in-showers can feature a luxurious floor surface of large marble slab that acts to hide linear drainage lines beneath. Sandblasted for a non-slip surface, the full marble floor is a bespoke detail that feels so luxe beneath book-matched walls." Says Carolyn Pressly.

"We'll see the use of concrete application in sink basins, countertops, floors and walls. It's really exciting to see a brutalist material mixed with organic elements. Traditionally, concrete has been viewed as cold and non-welcoming, but I'm of the mindset that marrying this utilitarian medium with woods, steel, porcelain and resin is what you guys are going to see surface in 2019 across all design aesthetics." Adds Becky Shea. “Pewter and gunmetal is the trend we are loving. It’s not as harsh as pure black or specific as brass or gold, but it gives fixtures some texture and depth.” Says Highlyann Krasnow. 

It would seem that the year of 2019 is all about making a bold artistic statement in your Chigwell, Loughton or Woodford home and the bathroom is no exception. Even if you are not planning a bathroom makeover “a sophisticated piece of fine art will provide your bathroom with a pretty focal point." Says Anne Hepfer.
