Tiles replicating real wood, stone, rimless water closets, and copper or gold fittings tend to make a statement and can make your bathroom look more luxurious, suggest experts.

Abhishek Somany, managing director at Somany Ceramics, and Manish Bhatia, president — building products division at Hindustan Sanitaryware and Industries Limited, have listed the trends that you can shop for that can amp up your bathroom.

Dress up your walls and floors

Statement wall and flooring not only add the desired dash of glamour, but also create a defining theme to pull the rest of the bathroom together. Tiles are a timeless update. Tile options replicating natural materials such as wood, metal and stone available in both unpolished and polished finishes can turn a simple small bathroom around.

Be tech-smart

It is time we jump onto the tech-savvy parade with smart fittings such as rimless range of water closets. Bold and beautiful, the water closets offer clean simple lines and contemporary styling suitable for any bathroom. Another option is an avant-garde music shower, which not only enables you to flip your hair in the shower to your favourite tunes, but also answer important calls.

Ornament it with faucets

To recreate the charm and elegance of the yesteryears, move beyond the contemporary sleek styling, and look towards Neo-Rococo period. Opt for statement copper or gold fittings, free standing baths or showers, and statement vanities. Subtle finishes, such as rose gold, look great on taps, showers and handles, are in demand.

Light it bright

The correct use of light can affect the overall ambience and the look of a bathroom. While lots of light can brighten up the space and add certain grandeur to the bathroom, subtle and accent lighting can also be used to strategically highlight specific areas.
