Whether you are after savvy storage solutions for a small space, or you're looking for a splash of hotel spa chic, our Good Homes bathroom roomset sponsor, Albion Bath Company, have come up with their top bathroom trends. 

Monochrome

Phil Etherden, Managing Director of Albion, explains:

'There’s a good reason why this trend comes around year after year. A classic black or white freestanding bath will never go out of style, while a simple monochrome colour palette is sleek and sophisticated. It also doesn’t date as quickly than many of the latest colour trends. Black and white one of the easiest looks to pull off effectively, as well as being easy to live with and to adapt to your taste.'

Storage

Phil Etherden, Managing Director of Albion, explains:

'Bathrooms with barely any storage are a thing of the past -  practicality is now the crucial consideration. These days there are many beautiful ways to add storage space to your bathroom without compromising on your decor style. Our beautiful vanity consoles, such as the Hamar and Dalby range, are a great way to keep your bits and pieces from cluttering up your surfaces.'

Bold Accents

Phil Etherden, Managing Director of Albion, explains:

'Inject some personality into your bathroom with a pop of colour. Coloured baths and furniture are coming back, but in bolder, more luxurious shades than the pale pinks and avocados of previous decades. A bright or jewel-toned bath is a great way to add drama and interest to a room. We’re able to colour match the majority of our baths to any colour in the Farrow & Ball or Dulux Trade palette, so the only limit is really your imagination.;

Metallic glamour

Phil Etherden, Managing Director of Albion, explains:

'Metallic touches in the bathroom are hugely fashionable at the moment and give a real sense of getting back to base materials. Our luxurious burnished and polished bath finishes are a popular option for anyone looking for a solid, industrial warehouse look. They’re ideal for creating a focal point and adding structure and glamour to a bathroom scheme.'

Compact

'Compact, carefully designed furniture can give any bathroom a spacious feel, even if it’s used in a small room. The trick with a smaller bathroom or cloakroom is to maximise the visible area of the floor, as this creates the impression of space. With this in mind, wall-hung units are an ideal solution.'

'High Level Toilets are great, as the cistern is above eye level creating more visible space. We would also recommend including some kind of storage in your design, such as a cabinet or console basin, as this provides somewhere to hide away clutter and keep your cloakroom looking clean and sleek,' says Phil Etherden, Managing Director of Albion.

Today there are a wide selection of bathroom products available for smaller spaces, including short-projection furniture, compact baths, wall hung units and corner basins. Albion offer a wide selection of designs which help will make use of every available inch of space.
