Hey Peeps, I hope you’re all well and enjoying Home Peep so far. If your like me you like to have the latest and greatest. Why? because you can and you deserve it of course. Well, this is what inspired me for this post. I wanted you to know some of the up and coming trends for 2016 so you can be the first to have these designs.
I have researched lots of articles to find the latest and greatest, up and coming trends. Some are extreme but you can always use the design thought and just scale it down a little to suit your needs.
Come on and take a look at my collection of new trends for 2016 and be a trend setter yourselves. I hope you enjoy and remember…. Rule number one… Have fun.Feature Floor Tiles – Make a bold choice in your bathroom by selecting floor tiles which stand out above the rest. So many people go for the square marble effect or the wood floor. I’m not saying this is a bad choice, I’m just enlighting you to the other options out there which you may not have thought about. Here is a glorious design by Brooke Wagner Design. This uses a selection of colours, sized patterned tiles to glorify the floor. Framing Nature – Ever heard the expression … looking outside the box? Well, this couldn’t be truer in home design. Many people visualise their bathrooms using the room they have between the four walls. Well, what about what is around those 4 walls? You might have amazing views of fantastic grounds, panoramic landscapes or amazing outdoor water features. You could design your bathroom to include these amazing features by creating a masterful viewing platform to bring what is outside in. Look at this design by John Maniscalco Architecture. They have used a unique bath set next to the window so overlooking the view. Green Rooms – The best way to describe this, pardon the pun, growing trend is to use the picture above by Mark Brand Architecture. They have installed a living wall with a stand alone roll top ceramic bath in front. I can only imagine the amazing feeling you would get laying in your hot bubbles with all this green foliage next to you. This design definitely has the thumbs up from me. Adults retreat – Who of you has an en suite? is it big? or like mine… quite small? Then have you ever thought of trying this new trend. Instead of keeping your en suite separate, knock down those walls and may it open plan. Look at how Minosa Designs has transformed this bedroom and made it into a romantic retreat. Smart water technology – Basic tap ware are a thing of the past. Now everyone wants easy to use controls which not only control flow but thermostats and multiple water sources. Did you know there are even touch screen operated showers now? Mario Romano has used an integrated shower head in this design and sunk shelf. The controls are simple and lite.
