Bathroom Trends of 2023 with the Pantone Colour of the Year

With the Pantone Colour of the Year just announced, let’s take a look at some of the Bathroom trends you can expect to see in 2023 that include similar colours as part of the MagentaVerse.

About Viva Magenta and the MagentaVerse

If you’re looking for an exciting new way to spruce up your home, the Pantone Colour of the Year for 2023 is a great place to start! Viva Magenta is a vibrant hue that is both fun and enchanting. Adding this colour to your home décor will create an exciting pop of colour compared to the more pared-back neutrals we’ve seen in recent years. 

Plus, it’s not just magenta that has been carefully selected as part of the MagentaVerse – there are also complementary hues set alongside it which are guaranteed to not only add tonnes of style and charm but also inspire. Bringing Viva Magenta or any of its counterparts into your home will no doubt be one upgrade you won’t regret making.

 

Why Magenta?

In the past few years, it has become increasingly easy to step back from our busy lives and develop a newfound appreciation of the power of nature. The lockdown saw us re-engaging with the outdoors – we reconnected with our gardens with enthusiasm and care, growing house plants and cherishing our outdoor spaces. 

Since then, enthusiasm for sustainability has kept growing, even for home décor – as demonstrated by Viva Magenta’s beautiful organic product colours. With its natural sources like the carmine-dye-producing cochineal beetle, its vibrant red range strikes a balance between boldness and playfulness – adding a special atmosphere to any space. Red is truly life-affirming; Viva Magenta allows us to continuously recognise that connection in all we do.

 

Viva Magenta in the bathroom

For those wanting to wholeheartedly jump into magenta, there are many ways to incorporate the colour into your bathroom. Just painting the walls in this bold shade, will completely transform the space.

Tile Wall

Using tiles as a feature wall is set to be one of the hottest trends of 2023, and with good reason. Tiles can add instant personality to any small bathroom, providing an unexpected pop of colour or texture that turns a basic space into something truly eye-catching. 

Subway tiles are especially popular right now and they have the added benefit of being so easy to clean and manage. That’s why they work especially well behind a basin or area where spills may be more frequent. 

Plus, with so many colours available that can easily complement neutral colour schemes or stand out against bolder colour palettes, subway tiles are incredibly versatile when it comes to creating the desired look for your bathroom space. Use them vertically or horizontally to create depth, or stick with the classic subway shape for familiar comfort.

Here you can see a colour similar to Pale Khaki from the MagentaVerse on the opposing wall to the tiles that creates a peaceful area of the room where you can keep some of your bathroom accessories. Combining textures and colours really does create a busy yet peaceful space for you and your family to relax in. 

 

Wall art tiles

Another trend that we’re likely to see more of in 2023 is these contrasting style tiles that feature different patterns that can be arranged to allow a creative burst of colour into the bathroom with little effort.

Similar colours used here from the MagentaVerse are the Pale Dogwood and elements of all three of the green tones. Together they embody a floral flourish that brings nature inside, whilst still maintaining that clean and fresh look.

The MagentaVerse spectrum offers two beautiful, complimentary colours – Pale Dogwood and Plain Air. Together, they offer a serene, inviting atmosphere that can be highlighted with black accents or bronze brassware. Villeroy & Boch provides top-notch collections like Finion and Artis where we’re seeing these shades outshine all others. Herringbone tiles are also gaining more and more attention for their subtle pattern and charming appeal. In the coming year, we can expect to see this trend still going strong! Bringing these subtle tones into your home is sure to bring some colour to those everyday moments.

CURVE APPEAL FOR YOUR BATHROOM

If you want to be ahead of trend then get curve appeal in your new bathroom. Curvaceous bathrooms are predicted to be the trend for 2022.

Curves are in

These days our bathrooms need to be not just functional but also a sanctuary of relaxation. A place where we can shut out the world for a little while and rest. And that’s why we agree with Pinterest’s new ‘Predicts’ that curves and soft lines are going to be big in 2022.

New bathroom collections do away with square, harsh edges and introduce a softer, gentler style that really does give your space that chilled out vibe.

 

Adopt a rounded approach

It’s not just bathroom furniture that’s going curvy. It’s everything from toilet to basin, bath to showerhead, taps to mirrors. This ‘rounded’ approach will make your bathroom feel that little bit more indulgent. A place where you can recharge your batteries, whatever time of day.

VitrA’s new Liquid by Tom Dixon

One of the most exciting collections with curve appeal is the recently launched VitrA Liquid.  Liquid is a unique collaboration between designer Tom Dixon and the leading bathroom brand and is all about expressive minimalism. It’s soft and rounded forms are generous in proportion and eradicate all sharp edges from the bathroom.

All elements of the bathroom

As well as looking good, the collection is tactile and functional and encompasses all elements of the bathroom, from ceramics to brassware, tiles to accessories.

Ceramics have been extended beyond the traditional realms of basins and sanitaryware, including a rotund stool which can be used in the shower or anywhere else in the home. 

Tom Dixon’s theme continues into the expressive showerheads and controls.  The whole collection incorporates fatter, softer lines that are more generous, long-lasting and stronger.

Not just for the home

Taps and showers are available in chrome or gloss black finish for a contrast.  The products can be combined flexibly to create a unique style and purpose and are designed for use either in the home or professional environments, including offices, hotels and restaurants.

At a time when there is more emphasis being placed on the bathroom, this unique collection is both innovative and contemporary and will certainly add curve appeal to your space.

VitrA Voyage by leading designer Arik Levy

Bathroom design is evolving, and VitrA’s expansive Voyage collection points us towards the look and feel of tomorrow.

Gone are the days when the bathroom was a practical affair, a room only to dash in and out of. In recent years the space’s functionality has melded with tactile materials, sensuous shapes and considered use of colour as it moves further and further from existing purely for cleanliness, to somewhere to enjoy, retreat to, and luxuriate in.

The design of the bathroom and the objects within it have adapted accordingly, in a trend that first saw freestanding baths take on ever more experimental shapes, and slowly trickled through into furniture, brassware and ceramics. As things get increasingly progressive, leading the way is Voyage by VitrA, a 130-piece range by renown Israeli creative Arik Levy, characterised by flowing, sculptural sanitaryware and adaptable wooden storage. 

‘VitrA’s Voyage collection breaks bathroom boundaries with its unique interpretation of ceramicware, and forward-thinking approach to space saving and flexibility’ says Graeme Borchard, Managing Director at ukbathrooms.com. ‘The range is a glimpse into the future, showing us that contemporary spaces will be imaginative, impactful and approached differently to today.’

Serene ceramics

The collection clearly plays into the bathroom’s new role as a room for relaxation. Sanitaryware is modern and elegant, circular or oval basins merged with round-cornered rectangular trays, which invoke a deeply calming feel, thanks to the smoothness of the shapes and the clear craft involved in combining the forms. These pieces speak of poetry, artistry and a soothing softness.

Wet or dry?

In a further challenge to the bathroom norm, Voyage basins blur the boundaries of the wet and the dry, with the tray surrounding the bowl creating a mid-point between the two and initiating a new dialogue between countertop and bowl. Will this extra area be used for product storage, to catch water, or in ways we are yet to discover?

Total flexibility

Voyage is entirely wall hung, an innovation which makes it incredibly versatile and entirely customisable to specific spaces and needs. Storage focuses on simple timber boxes – inspired by the time designer Arik Levy spent living in Japan – units and wall panels that can be placed horizontally or vertically, in five natural tones including light and dark oak as well as white, grey and forest green. 

Signalling a change in bathroom design, Voyage works in rooms big and small, crucially embracing individual needs and preferences, and inviting the user on a journey to build their own personal space to unwind in.

Warm, reflective and glowing… VitrA’s stunning Copper Brassware & Bathroom Accessories

Copper is a traditional material that has stormed its way back into fashion.  Warm, reflective and glowing it is certainly making all of us here at ukbathrooms.com keen to update our own bathrooms!

         

We love this stunning range from VitrA, encompassing brassware and accessories all in a choice of finishes including Copper. Pair this metal with natural materials such as wood and marble for an elegant, contemporary look.  The copper trend is showing no sign of slowing down, and current demand is high on our site.  The polished finish from VitrA has a more golden look as opposed to a natural deep orange tone.

Over the past few years metallics have become really popular with the warm copper and brass shades being easy to incorporate in our homes.  In your bathroom, opt for copper taps, shower, waste, exposed bottle trap and matching accessories, use the Copper as a standout feature so it really makes your room pop.

      

Opulent shades such as Kingfisher blue and teal are a perfect partner to this metal, decadent in tone they are an ideal combination. Equally, a bathroom that uses marble and copper brassware has an appeal that is timeless. Charcoal, smoky greys, blush pink and neutrals also work with this warm finish and can be visually stunning.

Tip – use copper sparingly for more impact – either limit to a gorgeous copper bath or brassware and accessories – less is often more!
