Bathroom Surfacing Trends 2019
News, Top Trends
January 15, 2019
2019 is the year of going bold in the bathroom – whether it is with your choice of brassware, surfaces or furniture. Extra-large slabs and tiles are set to be key this year, offering sophisticated designs, visual continuity and practical benefits.
Suitable for wall cladding or flooring, large format solid surfaces are a step away from smaller, decorative tiles. This year’s trend for solid surfaces in the bathroom centres on bold looks, such as classic marble or on-trend industrial, moving away from stark whites. Walls and flooring can be designed to match or contrast.
Statement Shower Cladding
One option is to use large format slabs for shower cladding. This is a dramatic look that pairs well with crittal style shower screens, another key 2019 trend. Marble-look bathroom surfacing is still high in demand. For a contemporary take, pair with dark hues and brass or black finishes for a fresh yet luxe look. Finish off your space with a touch of greenery for a real Instagram-worthy project!
Luxe Vanity Units
Extra-large surface cladding can also be used to great effect on the wall behind a vanity unit. This works especially well when the same surface is used for the vanity top, creating a bespoke look. Ideal for relaxing, minimalistic bathrooms, this look is all about sizing up, such as using a double vanity unit, or a large mirror. Finish with statement brassware for a premium feel.
Bathroom Surfacing Practical Benefits
From a practical perspective, large format surfaces offer a variety of benefits. Top of the list is easier cleaning, with less awkward grouting and joins to clean. Ideal for use in the bathroom, Dekton offers a high resistance to scratches, staining and low porosity, all ensuring easy cleaning. Large format slabs of up to 1440 mm x 3200 mm are available, perfect for seamless wall cladding. What’s more, Dekton has a wide range of different designs, including on-trend urban looks. We expanded our popular Dekton Industrial Collection last year with a range of surfaces inspired by aged concrete.
In addition, we offer a made to order Bathroom Collection. This means it’s possible to opt for a wash basin in the same material as your desired Dekton bathroom surfacing. Whether you choose to mix or match, you’re sure to find a stylish combination, with a variety of basin styles on offer.
