According to recent forecasts by some interior design analysts in the bathroom design industry, 2011 is the year that bathrooms are to go back to basics, with a more traditional farm colour palette that includes sudden bursts of bright colour set to become more popular in UK bathrooms in the next 12 months, say

Pete Robertshaw, chief news editor at Better Bathrooms says: “Recent research has revealed that consumers and interior designers have gone back to basics when opting to decorate the bathroom, with bright farm colours, such as understated neutrals like browns and creams to much brighter colours, such as reds and blues set to be staples in bathrooms across the country. Many interior design experts believe that the next few months will see Brits returning to some very unusual colour schemes, such as green, bright orange and even purple.”

Another prominent feature of 2011 bathroom furniture design is set to be the use of wood, primarily oak, for statement furniture pieces, bathroom accessories, window treatments and even Venetian blinds, all of which hark back to some of the more traditional methods of bathroom design and decoration.

Robertshaw continues: “The use of wood in bathrooms is something that has been replaced by the use of stone, such as ceramics and slate for a while now, as before there weren’t that many ways that you could protect wooden furniture and accessories in a bathroom. However, at BetterBathrooms, we’ve seen that wood is definitely making a comeback this year, especially in the guise of wooden blinds, which are more hardwearing than plastic ones, and are often thought of as being an ideal feature in any room of the home, because they let in just the right amount of sunlight and heat.”
