Colours: Neutral, creams beiges, warm greys don’t be afraid to combine grey with lavenders, purple or turquoise, creams will always be classics with grey. A few injections of a complementary colour to add interest and prevent it becoming too sterile.
Style: Products remain predominantly minimal—streamlined wall mounted sanitary ware, soft soothing lines, mineral cast hard wearing, durable sleek designs.
Furniture: Modular wall mounted remains the most popular choice with large drawers for storage with cleverly designed drawer dividers. The look is natural materials, wood finishes light or dark far outweigh the popularity of high white gloss finishes.
