'With Great Britain’s most successful Winter Olympics ever now a glittering memory in our minds, it’s quite apt that gold is fast becoming a popular accent colour in bathrooms.

More and more homeowners are “going for gold” when it comes to their choice of fittings and fixtures, with gold coloured taps, showers and accessories creating a bathroom that wins first prize in the style stakes.

With a superior PVD plated finish, you’ll find a range of glittering gold-coloured fixtures and fittings, including taps, showers, wastes and accessories, from the Spencer collection.'

Add lush green plants

'Whilst we’re all well aware of the benefits of houseplants, your bathroom may not automatically spring to mind when you think of green interiors. With a wide variety of plants that thrive in warm and damp environments, your bathroom is the ideal place to start your green revolution.

Green was one of the big themes in 2017 and this trend looks set to grow further in 2018. For a lush and verdant bathroom, choose hanging planters to keep your floor space clear, or you could even go one step further, with a “living wall'

Create a focal point with a colourful bath tub

If you like to keep it safe with colour, why not invest in a freestanding bath in an eye-catching shade? They will provide a welcome statement to any simple colour scheme. 

VictoriaPlum.com says:

'Searching for a coloured bath that will fit with a contemporary bathroom? The Ellis freestanding bath, above, exclusive to Mode Bathrooms, is available in a superb range of bold colours.

Feature tiling

VictoriaPlum.com says:

'Create your picture-perfect wall with a range of designs, colours and textures and choose from plenty of tiling accessories, including professional style grouting and adhesives.

Or why not add funky feature flooring that will transport your bathroom back in time to a classic era with Geometric or Retro Feature floor tiles from British Ceramic Tile. Or, for a more refined look, check out the feature tiles from the Laura Ashley Heritage range.'

Statement bathroom accessories
