Out with the Old and in with New: 5 Trends to Watch for 2015

Villeroy & Boch offers cutting-edge bathroom design trends projected to be popular in the New Year.

Monroe, NJ, January 01, 2015 --(PR.com)-- This year, design trends for the bathroom focused on free-flowing natural styles. Organic materials, a pure white color palate, and coastal accents created a cozy and rustic feel while adding character to the space. In 2015, coastal cottage gives way to lush luxury. With design directions moving away from traditional bathrooms in favor of a more modern aesthetic, form and function come together to create stunning spa-like escapes. An emphasis on personalization and bold choices presents both designers and consumers with an increased opportunity for creativity and self-expression, transforming the bathroom from a lavatory into an at-home retreat.

Minimalist motifs and contemporary colors have taken prominence in shaping the multifaceted modern bath. Always at the forefront of modern-day interior elegance, Villeroy & Boch’s premium products align perfectly with these popular present-day preferences.

Soaking Tubs

Large soaking and freestanding tubs combine chic contours with visual serenity, making them the ideal centerpiece for any modern bathroom. The award winning La Belle deep freestanding tub features clean lines and an ergonomic rectangular shape that communicates a sense of lightness and provides the perfect space to unwind and relax. Made from the durable Quaryl material, the sumptuous tub is available in pure White Alpin and dramatic Graphite Noir.

Undermount Sinks

Undermount sinks boast clean, efficient designs that pair perfectly with wall hung vanities or curvy consoles. Their sleek contours and seamless blend between countertop and sink create an uninterrupted surface that makes a striking design statement. Gentle arcs and soothing lines like those of the Twist Undermount Washbasin add subtle character for modernism with a softer edge. The glossy white glaze simple silhouette emanates contemporary charm when complemented by a set of shapely wooden legs.

Natural Beauty

Organic forms and neutral tones bring an earthy feel to a room that is both modern and luxurious. Incorporating natural materials such as stone or wood-like elements creates an inviting atmosphere with a stylish twist that invokes a sense of rejuvenation. With real wood finish, Memento furniture harmoniously blends linear forms and natural ambiance to bring a warm tactile appeal to the bath while remaining sleek and functional. The oak veneer and textural contrast give the room a certain brightness that enhances the calm, spa-like environment.

LED Lighting
