Top Bathroom Trends for 2013

By Touseef Hussain

2013 bathroom trends are looking to be a mix of natural elements and contemporary line with a dash of colour to lift the spirits. Culminating into a truly luxurious bathing experience, here are the emerging bathroom trends for 2013 that we know you will want to try this coming year.

Tile Trends

Tiles will remain popular through 2013. Splashes of colour in a variety of ways such as a mosaic border or centre mural are great hit in the market. Also popular are tile designs that offer a glimpse of nature such as wood grain or stone effect finishes. Whether it be on walls or floors, tiles continue to impress with their durability, anti-slip designs and aesthetic appeal.

Natural Elements

Natural elements will feature strongly in 2013 in the form of wooden floors, timber cabinets as well as in decorative pieces such as shells and stones. Even images of the outdoors and animals can be tried to decorate your bathroom. A neutral colour palette of off-white and beige tones will be seen with hints of blue, orange and green with the odd splash of pink in more adventurous quarters.

Eco Efficient

2013 is the year when an abundance of homeowners will transform their bathrooms into eco-friendly rooms once and for all. Fitting water saving shower heads and faucets, efficient heating, dual flush toilets and even installing recycled tiles are few of the ways through which bathrooms will become more eco-efficient.

Contemporary Style

Although in 2013 there is a strong focus on nature that doesn't mean we'll be seeing rustic, bulky or even traditional styled settings. Instead, bathrooms will embrace cabinetry that displays clean simple lines. Wall hung vanities, toilets and storage units will continue the minimalist theme and offer a sense of spaciousness and calm.

Light and Bright

With the desire of getting outdoors into your bathroom in 2013 go for natural light through large windows or skylights. Natural light will prove popular in the bathroom but so will artificial lights that add ambience to the room. Wall hung vanity units will make way for under counter lighting that will bring that extra touch of luxury. Light fittings will also act as features to add interest to the design.

Sleek Accessories

2013's bathrooms are made complete with practical accessories found in sleek designs. Expect to see exquisite soap holders, beautifully crafted towel rails and racks along with sleek toilet roll holders and toilet brushes - all offering the perfect finishing touch to a truly immaculate look.

The ultimate way to tie together the latest bathroom design aspects for 2013 is by following the growing trend of creating your very own spa-like experience within your home. With a sunlit bathroom featuring wood grain patterned tiles, stone counter tops, sleek design and eco-friendly fixtures, all that's left to do is install a walk-in shower, deep bath and heated towel rail and you will be bathing in complete luxury day in and day out. Now they are trends worth embracing.
