When the Christmas decorations need to come down and festivities start to fade, it is no surprise we all get a small case of the January blues. Nevertheless, it doesn’t have to be that way as this is the best time to refresh your bathroom and properly bring in the New Year!

As 2016 begins, you will start to see new trends for the bathroom market emerge, so there really is no better time to explore your options for that much needed revamp. If you’re in the market for a new bathroom or just looking to make some savings then look no further …

If current fashions and trends dictate your interior style, then it’s good to note that wall-hung furniture remains a big player for achieving the latest bathroom look. If you have the luxury of an open-plan bathroom environment, as pictured below, then both material and finish will ultimately influence your decision.

Premium bathroom furniture manufacturers, such as Mereway, have been able to create wall-hung furniture with a contemporary twist. Not only guaranteeing you the height of practicality, this style of furniture will also give you the chance to inject a little personality in your home this New Year.

Strada White Zebra Main Set Shot

A fantastic example of how an eye-catching finish really can influence the overall look is with Mereway’s Strada Collection seen here in its classic white finish with a Zebra print detail. With just a hint of the unusual, you really can transform your bathroom into a personal sanctuary, and if stripes don’t take your fancy then why not try a more modest red, bronze or black gloss furniture set?

Should the space you’re working with be slightly on the compact side, this type of furniture solution will work as well. Providing you with ample storage space in a wealth of different sizes, styles and configurations, wall-hung is the ideal solution for hiding all of your bathroom necessities in a limited sized bathroom. Typically incorporating pull-out shelf systems and soft-close deep drawers, it also has the ability to not impede on available floor space, which lets face it… we all want to keep clear!

If like me, you are in awe of the luxury designs seen in boutique hotels, glossy magazines and on our high streets, then you might like to know you can recreate that very same sophistication at home this 2016. There are already so many unique designs and finishes available and this catalogue of choice is only set to grow as we become more open to bespoke bathroom design.

Custom-made bathroom interiors have recently seen wall panels for the shower area completely evolve. A big step away from the standard tiled backdrop, you can now create a bespoke solution with 100% free reign over design, colour and look of the panelling. Bringing a whole host of opportunities to now combine your own digital images upon the surface itself, wall panels are definitely an affordable, fun way of refreshing your bathroom this New Year.

Multipanel Create Waterfall

Check out this exotic wall panel featured in the Create Range by Multipanel™. Featuring a crystal clear acrylic front, the wall panel gives the illusion of sparkling clear glass which in this case, is adorned by a dramatic waterfall (finish D008).

So why not add character in your bathroom and incorporate your very own unique photo wall? Whether you opt for a luscious waterfall image to create an idyllic island oasis or display one of your very own pictures, Multipanel™ is a great way to add even more individuality to your bathroom.



If you fancy more of a one-off impulse buy that still creates the same amount of impact, then a new basin mixer has the potential to transform the entire look of a bathroom. It may surprise you to hear, but a single new tap really can create a focal point and with so many different designs and models to choose from, make sure you narrow down your search wisely.

Crosswater Sparkle

The Sparkle Basin Mixer by Crosswater truly epitomises high glamour, don’t you think? A stand-out design with its gem encrusted façade, this quality tap really does go the extra mile at creating that all important ‘wow’ factor. High end luxury and show stopping design; the Sparkle Monobloc basin mixer guarantees to add a touch of drama and designer panache to anyone’s bathroom, including yours!
