With 2017 well under way we wanted to take this opportunity to bring you up to speed with what we have spotted as the emerging bathroom design trends of 2017 so far. We take our inspiration from the beautiful VP customer bathroom pictures that are shared with us and we also listen to our growing community of interior designers, bathroom design influencers and customers on the Victorian Plumbing Pinterest and Instagram pages.

One fantastic way that customers have been sharing their bathroom ideas and inspiration has been on a special bathroom trends Pinterest board we launched recently. This collaborative board has a constant stream of pictures that highlight some of the biggest emerging trends in bathrooms right now: definitely worth a look.

Below we have picked out 5 key trends that you can easily incorporate into your own bathroom design. Whether you are designing a large family bathroom or a smaller en suite or cloakroom bathroom, these ideas will make sure your new bathroom is bang on trend!

1. Grey Bathrooms

The trend of using grey as the main colour for your bathroom has been growing in popularity over the last few years and shows no sign of slowing down. The grey bathroom look is understated yet sophisticated and another plus point is that this style won't look dated in a few years time. This colour is most definitely one to consider when planning a bathroom!

One of the keys to nailing the look is choosing the right bathroom furniture and tiles. Today there are more grey bathroom furniture options available than ever before so you are sure to find something that fits in with your design. Popular ranges we stock include the Brooklyn avola grey range and another is the slightly more traditional Chatsworth collection. When it comes to choosing tiles you can't go wrong with light grey metro tiles. If metro tiles aren't for you there are lots more grey bathroom tiles out there that include both stone effect and patterned styles.

The grey bathroom trend has been a revelation in interior and bathroom design in the last few years, to find out more about how to incorporate this look into your bathroom check out our recent in-depth article on grey bathroom ideas.

2. Handle-less Bathroom Furniture

Another trend we've spotted recently is bathroom furniture with a handle-less appearance. If you're planning a modern or even an ultra-modern bathroom then this trend is certainly one to take a look at. The idea of handle-less furniture is that the actual handle of the cabinet, vanity unit, mirror etc is built into the unit itself. This design feature makes for a great minimalist look that's popular in contemporary bathroom designs.

Two ranges to take a look at with an eye on handle-less furniture are the Urban and Ronda collections. Both have two different takes on the handle-less style and the Urban range in particular is available in grey which is perfect if you are looking to incorporate both the handle-less and grey trends in one room.

3. Spanish Tiles

Spanish tiles (sometimes referred to as bohemian or even boho tiles) are a style of patterned tile that's influenced by Spanish artisan culture and tradition. These beautiful tiles often feature lively colours and eclectic patterns; you can buy them as both wall and floor tiles however it's the latter that has been getting all the attention in recent months. Add Spanish floor tiles to your bathroom design to achieve a rich footprint and a standout feature. A great combination to consider is using Spanish tiles on the floor of your bathroom and metro tiles on the walls.

A Spanish floor tile that has proven very popular with Victorian Plumbing customers since the beginning of the year has been the Almada grey tile. This beautiful and understated tile can add a rustic edge to your bathroom design.

4. Rose Gold

The rose gold trend is all about choosing rose gold over chrome as the finish for your taps, wastes and even your shower. Rose gold offers a refreshing alternative to chrome and is a modern twist to using more traditional yellow gold. Using rose gold is certainly a way to make a statement with your new bathroom.

If you like the idea of adding rose gold touches to your bathroom then a range worth your time is the rose gold Hemsby collection from respected manufacturer Heritage. This gorgeous collection includes a rose gold shower, basin taps, bath taps and even a freestanding tap.

5. Green Bathrooms

Colour aficionados Pantone announced at the start of the year that the interior colour for 2017 is ‘Greenery’ and ever since we have seen a constant stream of brilliant bathrooms that feature the once feared hue. People fell out of love with the colour green because of those terrible avocado coloured bathroom suites of a few years back but green is back in a big way. For a little more on the green bathroom trend read our expert guide on green bathroom ideas.

Another idea that falls in with the green bathroom trend is the idea of botanical bathrooms. This trend is all about bringing nature into your bathroom with the addition of carefully chosen bathroom plants. For more information on this trend and some advice on which plants are best for your bathroom read our botanical bathroom ideas.
