Trends in Bathroom Furniture

Simplicity, rigor and color inspire the latest trends in bathroom furniture, for a room that is increasingly important both in residential and contract projects

Let’s take advantage of our recent visit to Cersaie to take stock of bathroom furniture trends. For some time now, the bathroom has established its role as a room dedicated to wellness, and its furniture, as a result, becomes really important. Moreover, freed from mere functional purposes, bathroom furniture offers new opportunities for design and creativity to designers and manufacturers, and adds to the various elements also decorative radiators, which are now an integral part of the furniture.

Essential structures for bathroom furniture

Matteo Thun and  Antonio Rodriguez have designed the total look of the Indissima collection for Inda. This collection revolves around a multi-function bar, which allows you to create different customized solutions for the entire bathroom.

A trend developed in recent years is represented by the free-standing washbasin, which can be placed in any environment with no constraints. Vogue, by Meneghello Paolelli Associati for The.Artceram is a metal structure consisting of a tube that supports the three round washbasins of the collection. Available in white or black, the structure also includes a towel rail.

Modularity and minimalism characterize the Code collection by Arbi, which allows you to customize the bathroom depending on your needs. In the picture, a composition with glossy Laminam Noir Desir top, with Plaza double washbasin, bases in painted Metal Pinot and aluminum mirror.

Designers Angeletti and Ruzza created for Ceramica Globo a furniture series that integrates washbasins, shelves, supporting structures, available in different combinations, materials and colors, for a bathroom tailored to any interior design style. Essential and rigorous, the items of this collection can be square or round depending on the washbasin. Tops are made of Dekton, the solid surface by Cosentino, or in the “Bagno di Colore” ceramic mixture.

And to merge the bathroom and the gym there is Gym Space, by Mattia Pareschi for Scavolini Bagno. The project is inspired by wall bars and introduces this piece of equipment into the bathroom, creating a multi-purpose wooden structure. On its own, it acts as a support for your own gym, with fitness benches or resistance bands. Otherwise it can be used to hold lights, soap holders, shelves, bases with washbasins or mirrors, for a complete furnishing system.

Materials and colors that reproduce natural surfaces

Cubik, the system by Ideagroup characterized by an extremely rigorous and graphic design, has a new look, with new finishes, colors, modules. Aluminum and glass frames combine with fossil wood or aged oak, or with Unicolor HPL laminates or eco-mortars, for resistant and scratchproof surfaces, perfect for contract use.

Pietrablu by Arblu represents bathroom furniture at its best, being a collection of decorative textures that can be applied to any surface: washbasins, mirrors, accessories, panels, sides, tops, shower trays, decorative radiatos. Juta, Well and Trendy, three finishes from this collection, are available in the following colors: white, ivory, gravel, cappuccino, volcano, rope, cement and anthracite

Juta reproduces the warp and weft of natural jute, creating an impression of softness; Well reproduces the charm of ashlar blocks, with contemporary shapes. Trendy is a texture that recalls natural stone. Moreover, Pietrablu offers the possibility to customize the handle grip, thanks to limited thicknesses.

Shower enclosures and designer radiators

Suite, designed by Castiglia Associati for Vismaravetro, is a project of glass and aluminum walls, consisting of doors and fixed panels, up to 270 cm, allowing for different configurations. These elements are equipped with 10 mm monolithic tempered glass or laminated safety glass (4 + 4 mm) with aluminum profiles, available in different finishes. The result is a completely smooth wall, able to elegantly furnish any residential or contract space.

Over time, radiators have become decorative, and Cordivari Design has developed several projects transforming designer radiators into an authentic furnishing element for the bathroom and the rest of the home. At Cersaie 2019 it presented Window, a heated towel rail selected from the projects designed by UED students (Università Europea del Design di Pescara).

The idea conceived by Beatrice De Sanctis, undergraduate student in her final year, is simple and effective at once. Window, inspired by the shape of a window, consists of a fixed panel equipped with a movable frame that becomes a towel rail. Therefore, thanks to the combination of colors of panel and frame, Window becomes a heating element that perfectly completes the interior design of the bathroom. [Text Roberta Mutti]
