The increase in new build homes, featuring smaller bathrooms, en-suites and cloakrooms, has added to the need for smarter storage solutions. Homeowners want a bathroom that reflects who they are, and so we have seen an increased desire for functional furniture that doesn't compromise on style.
Fitted bathroom suites and wall or floor mounted cabinets with design features such as recessed sinks are proving to be essentials in the modern home. Recently, we've seen an increase in popularity of free standing vanity units such as the Caversham vanity unit with either the Dorchester or Blenheim basin. We're also seeing the use of interesting handles and knobs as an easy way to update or personalise furniture.
Colour blocking across a room is also proving popular to help consumers create interest in a small space, taking its cue from trends in kitchen interiors. The styling of Heritage's Belmonte suite with fitted Caversham furniture in graphite and oyster demonstrates how this trend can work in the family bathroom.
The vanity bathroom, the combination of a bathroom and dressing room area, is increasing in popularity. This trend seems to be gaining momentum and has revealed how consumers now want to use the space in their bathroom and how the right furniture can help them achieve this.
