Whats trending in the bathroom world?

And how can AXOR fill up your creative tub? 

Inspiration for the style of your bathroom can come from anywhere and now there are a few new modern innovations from the bathroom décor specialists AXOR which tie nicely in with certain bathroom themes. The real trick is choosing combinations which work for your personal style while still setting that trendy style your guests have come to know and love.

Go South, Sailor!

The good old-fashioned Nautical-themed bathroom – a common sight at just about every seaside holiday home from Sodwana to Saldanha – maintains its integrity as a staple classic for the coast-loving family. And as everyone knows, the Nautical bathroom should be two things: relaxing and lived-in. White wall paint and splashes of blue compliment the colours, while driftwood makes up the décor.

The Anchor

AXOR’s Starck V mixer is going to be your best friend for this bathroom style. The Starck V is characterised by the magic of transparency and has a body of crystal glass. But its real special feature is the vortex-shaped water that the spout produces. Evoking subconscious themes of whirlpools, typhoons and sea squalls, the Starck V would help take your nautical bathroom out of the early 60’s and place it firmly in the 21st century.

The Helm

So how do you carry the theme across to the shower? We’re looking for something modern, fresh and ‘sea voyagesque’. The AXOR Overhead Shower 350 is the one. Perfectly spherical, evincing that ship wheel shape, the 350 is the epitome of nautical class. Equipped with an innovative PowderRain jet, this shower will enhance your bathroom’s class, while enveloping your body in the finest cloak of droplets – for that sea-spume shower you’ve always wanted!

The Sunshine State

Another interesting trend taking over the bathroom world is the careful placement of sunny yellow in an otherwise black-and-white bathroom – done in a modern style. This colouring adds a magical pop to your bathroom space that is reminiscent of a stylish, haughty bumblebee. The trick here is to avoid overdoing the yellow! A hand towel, a floor matt or a metal dustbin is more than enough to pull of this modern style.

To Be Urban

Of course, going this route requires fittings with some class. The AXOR Citterio M makes for the perfect bathroom companion in this case! It is the ultimate symbol of urbanisation; a symbol for the living space of the future. There is no ornamentation or embellishment. The Citterio M is the power of simplicity, modelled on the modern skyscraper and adding debonair flair to your sunny bathroom.

The AXOR Finish

AXOR’s FinishPlus is the range of customisable colours for your taps, spouts and mixers. The FinishPlus range is a personalised statement for your bathroom. There are 15 different finished to choose from – including an exquisite Polished Gold Optic; which would absolutely electrify a bathroom done in the sunny yellow style. When it comes to colour choices – FinishPlus is your go to!

Just a taste!

These are but two suggested combinations for your bathrooms; but the options are limitless. Between AXOR’s product range and your own imagination, there is an endless array of beautiful bathrooms for you to stitch together.Get out your mood boards – next month we’ll be talking kitchens!
