This year has been an incredible one for the world of bathroom enthusiasts. Modern, innovative products are all the rage and companies like Hansgrohe continue to push the limit in their quest to find the perfect bathroom experience.

But while the future of sanitary fittings and products is being experimented with, 2019 has brought with it some incredible new trends in the world of bathroom design. Trends which deserve their moment in the spotlight as the existentially-stimulating beauties that they are.

Black is the New Grey

Black bathroom tones, palettes and colour-schemes have really come into their own this year. It’s bold, it’s eye-catching, its Devil Wears Prada for the loo.

And to go with your black-accented master bathroom? The Metropol range is the one for you. Defined by linear expression, the Metropol is a geometric model of magnificence. Firstly, the bathroom basin tap, with three different handles to choose from – Flat lever, Bow-shaped and Select. Designed with ComfortZone, the bathroom tap allows you to find that perfect spot when washing up.

Secondly, the shower mixer. The exposed single-lever mixer has minimalist qualities and comes with two handle options in the flat lever and bow-shaped; to match to your basin tap. For the perfect ensemble, match this shower mixer with the Raindance E overhead shower.

Finally, your tub can feature Metropol fittings too, adding style and modernity to whichever tub you have settled on.

When put together with the black tones and contrasting whites – this bathroom will look an absolute treat!

Wooden You Like to Know

But of course, much like the wand choosing the wizard, so too does the style choose the bather. Some will find the idea of a black-toned bathroom far too Gene-Simmons-esque. Which is where wood accents come to play.

One of this year’s major trends was a move away from grey, and while some went darker, others enjoyed a lighter side of life. Wood comes in so many shades and grains that it’s perfect for putting together a stunning bathroom look. Wood can complement almost any shade of paint as well.

The Talis range compliments the wooden concept without fuss; its popularised pin-handle making any bathroom look delightful. This multi-award-winning tap features EcoSmart technology, reducing water consumption considerably and saving you money.

The Talis S is the pin-handled family favourite, but the Talis E is a more modern redesign, coming with smooth contours and graceful lines. There is also a Talis S Select, featuring the Select button for convenience and use and no lever.

For the shower, the Crometta S is the showerhead to look at. Its simplistic circular design and look will go incredibly with dark or light wooden tones inside of the shower.


What we are also seeing is a rise in clean and functional accessories for the bathroom as families look to set a decent theme across the entire house. The Logis range of accessories from Hansgrohe is incredible and certainly one that you want to cock an eye toward if you are thinking of upping the ante in your own bathrooms.

From paper roll holders to lotion dispensers; from soap dishes to towel rails, and from toilet brush holsters to grab rails – this is a collection which will suit your bathroom, your home and your impeccable sense of style.

Go get ‘em.
