2) Wall-mounted and Curving Bathroom Vanities
Visually lighter and practical, wall-mounted vanities continue to be a popular bathroom trend. New ceramic and casting technologies have made both basin and countertop profiles thinner and lighter. Clean minimal rectilinear designs are still very popular and new gentle curving profiles round out your options. Wood finishes on vanity cabinets and matching mirror frames add a nice warm touch.
3) Integrated Sink and Shower Drains
The newest sink basins incorporate integrated drains and overflows. These narrow slot-type drains are easier to clean and more practical. According to designer Roberto Palomba while presenting his latest basin designs for Kartell and Laufen – “they will also save your jewelry too if dropped”. Integrated drains for showers are on trend as well. These new-style shower drains can be incorporated into the tiling or they are cast directly into solid shower bases.
4) Marble Finishes
Following the furniture trends, marble finishes give the latest bathroom designs a luxurious look and feel. Marble is being used on bathroom floors, to create bathroom accessories and as beautiful vanity tops. These two new vanity designs from Lacava illustrate this beautifully.
