Bathroom trends for 2015

Just as hemlines are constantly shifting, so are the fashions for kitchens and bathrooms. At Surrey Marble and Granite, we watch the designer ranges so we can help our customers recreate their dream look at an affordable price. Looking at the year ahead, below are our top six predictions for bathroom trends in 2015:

Statement floor tiles

This is a great trend that will easily transition from design magazines to homes across the country. Creating a feature floor is a great choice for a small bathroom or one where focus isn’t naturally drawn to any of the walls. It’s an ideal way to add a touch of glamour, a splash of colour or a sense of style to a bathroom without overwhelming it. Stone tiles are easy to clean, naturally waterproof and certainly make a statement.

Water-saving features

Not the most glamorous feature, but as designers around the world embrace sustainability, water saving measures are increasingly found in even the chicest bathrooms. Clever use of technologies helps create bathrooms that are decadent yet eco-friendly. For example, it’s easy to create a stone bathroom where shower water is re-used to flush a downstairs toilet.

Natural materials

Following the sustainability theme, natural materials are a big trend for 2015. Designers are reaching out for all sorts of natural materials, and you’ll even spot ‘living walls’ covered in moss or other plants in some of the major design magazines. For everyday use, stone bathrooms are leading the pack, particularly as granite grey is one of this season’s hot colours. Statement marble tiles hit several major trends at once, making them a popular choice.

Quartz worktops and tiles

A timely reminder that not all trends come from the same palette. Engineered quartz, with its scintillating textures and vast array of colours has been growing in popularity and is set to be strong in 2015. While natural stone worktops, such as marble and granite surfaces, are made of a single slab of stone, quartz worktops are reformed from chips of stone bonded with a special resin. Completely sealed by the process, they’re easier to shape, letting designers create stunning statement pieces.

Freestanding baths

A trend that works best in a larger bathroom, freestanding baths create a light, elegant atmosphere. Thanks to their increasing popularity, freestanding baths are now available in ever more shapes, sizes and materials. Look out for deluxe marble baths, go retro with lion’s feet or move towards modernism with a minimalist design.

Custom-made worktops

The rest of the world is catching up to a trend we’ve been following for years. Rather than try to fit a standard size granite worktop in a small bathroom or leave a marble vanity looking lost in a large space, designers are demanding custom-made bathroom worktops. As expert stoneworkers, Surrey Marble and Granite have been creating bespoke kitchen and bathroom worktops since we opened, making this one trend that’s easy to bring home.

As so many modern houses are built of fragile, impermanent materials, learning to live with the durability and strength of stone can be a challenge. We’ve noticed that some people are very protective of their stone floors or marble kitchen worktops, treating them like fragile porcelain. Others are a little too cavalier, risking damage which can easily be avoided. At Surrey Marble and Granite, we’ve been working with stone for many years, so we’ve rounded up the best tips and boiled them down to five New Year’s Resolutions for your […]
