•Getting makeover with concrete and plasters:
Concrete and plaster are flagrant for being cold and blunt. But it’s time to forget everything you know about them. Because you will see them looking way more refined in 2019. Concrete and plaster are seeping into bathroom design, bringing the once ‘cold’ material into a new form that feels sleek and warm.
•Asymmetrical & Advanced Mirrors:
Asymmetrical Mirrors are here and better than ever before. Unique and geometric mirror shapes are all the buzz, but that’s not all! Mirrors, just like the rest of the bathroom are becoming smarter. Mirrors can have anti-fog technologies, smart touch abilities, USB charging stations, and just about anything else you can imagine. Long gone are the days of plated mirrors. With shaped frame options taking over, you have the ability to get as creative as possible when it comes to picking out the exact style. And we have not forgotten about the most important detail of bathroom mirrors- lighting. It’s all about the lighting. Getting ready in your sleek and stylish bathroom would mean nothing if you didn’t come out looking flawless, right?! While we all love the idea of fun shapes and gadgets, functionality is at the top of our list. This is why we are seeing contemporary back lit mirrors as well a front lights increasing in popularity. Back lit mirrors are a more subtle option that will allow for optimal lighting. Lights in the front allow for more creativity, but may distract away from an asymmetrical mirror shape.
