Bathroom design in 2020 and beyond

Texture, colour, connectivity and personalisation set to define the future of bathroom design...

Words by ArchiPro Editorial Team

Texture, colour, connectivity and personalisation set to define the future of bathroom design. We spoke to a man at the forefront of designer bathrooms, Metrix Bathrooms’ Andrea Barzotto, to find out more.

ArchiPro: What are the key bathroom design trends at the moment?

Andrea Barzotto: We are seeing global trends emerge in the New Zealand market across colour, shape and texture bringing a sensory experience to bathroom design. Spaces can be more than functional, and bathrooms are increasingly becoming a living space where textures and materials can create a more harmonious atmosphere – one that has a positive impact on us at an emotional level. 

 

Bathroom design is also reflecting global trends towards wellness and personalisation. For example, the contrast between the powder room or guest bathroom being less conservative but still incorporating a unique piece or feature, in comparison to the day-to-day bathroom that becomes a more personalised and relaxed environment incorporating new elements such as multi shower spray and jet options, saunas and steam showers. 

 

Designers and architects are looking at new shapes and textures that can stimulate them to create something different for their clients. We are seeing an increasing interest across the spectrum from gloss to satin surfaces, the shape of the bathroom vessel and counter, and freedom in tapware colour and style of mounting.

ArchiPro: What is influencing people and how is bathroom design changing? 

Andrea Barzotto: Our bathroom experience is becoming more personalised and private. Household size and stage of life can demand different requirements with more than one bathroom per household being the norm as children grow into adults but remain living with their parents, or those in old age requiring more family support in a co-living environment.

 

Technology is also an influence for design in the future with connectivity in the bathroom becoming as available as it is in the kitchen. The other key influencing factor is being driven by wellness, which underscores an increasing trend towards personalised relaxation. 

 

ArchiPro: What role does colour and texture play in bathroom design?
Andrea Barzotto: Colour and texture are both very exciting in bathroom design at the moment as they drive our inspiration and emotion, reflecting the bathroom as a personalised living space and enhancing time spent in the bathroom.

ArchiPro: How has Metrix recognised this across their brand portfolio?

Andrea Barzotto: The new XViu by Duravit bathroom series inspires soft, organic forms that contrast with precise geometry. Sophisticated details and material combinations deliver colour, including the new black satin finish, as well as dynamic texture and shape for an individualised approach. 

 

Contemporary designs with elegant finishes are seen across our Paini, Dornbracht and Cristina tapware range. Colour has been a key feature for new tapware providing both bold and more conservative options.

 

We are also delighted to announce our new designer bathroom range, MOAB-80 from Italy, that has just arrived and has already become a sought-after option. Its unique style, texture and colour present an outstanding option for varied living environments.
