Raise the temperature with a key trend for 2015

One of the key bathroom trends for 2015 is warm tones achieved through colour and texture. This trend sees a shift from stark whites and cooler tones that we’ve favoured in the past.


So if you’re updating your bathroom this year or would like to include elements that are bang on trend, here are several ways to implement this current trend.


Colour me warm

A relatively cheap option is to get handy with the paintbrush or call in the professionals. Choose a rich, warm colour for a statement wall in an already white or pale bathroom or choose a tonally pleasing colour palette and banish white altogether. If you’re not a fan of strong colours opt for a similar tone at the paler end of the spectrum instead.

Instant warmth

One of the easiest and most budget-friendly ways to inject warmth into a predominantly white or pale colour scheme is by updating your bathroom’s accessories. From blinds, rugs and towels to soap dispensers, mirrors and artwork, changing up the colour-way with warm, earthy tones will instantly transform the feel of your design.


And the great thing about this option is that it works well in both ultra-contemporary and more traditional bathrooms.


Texturally pleasing

Adding warm tones through texture is easily achievable through the inclusion of rugs, patterned wallpaper, wood and tiling on walls and floors in your bathroom. Used creatively, different materials can bring warmth, interest and drama to an otherwise standard bathroom.


Just think outside the box and peruse interior magazines and online sites for added inspiration.



Metallically minded

Metallic details hint at luxury and instantly ramp up bathroom designs. By simply updating your taps and bath fillers with gold or copper alternatives, you can easily create a sense of warmth in your bathing sanctuary.



Shine a light

Updating your light fittings can also cast a warm glow on your bathing boudoir. Opt for gold, copper or bronze fittings, coloured shades or coloured glass to bring instant ‘heat’ to your space. Don’t forget to complement them with gold, bronze or copper light switches too.



The real deal

The heated towel rail in gold, copper or a combination of the two not only fits the bill design-wise, but also provides tangible warmth. Essential for keeping towels toasty and aired, as well as bringing a warmer tone to your bathroom.
