Brits’ bathroom design choices have been described as ‘more adventurous’ following the recession by two interior design insiders. The improving economic climate appears to have inspired British homeowners to think outside the box when it comes to decorating their bathroom, say

Pete Robertshaw, chief news editor at Better Bathrooms says: “The recession was a tough time for everyone, especially home owners. At the same time, the DIY industry saw something of a boom time, as many homeowners opted to add to the value of their home via improvements. Now it appears that homeowners are now opting to go for more extravagant themes, colours and accessories when decorating their home following the recession.”

Some of the key trends and colour schemes show that people want to have more fun with their bathrooms and their homes in general, and with the Royal Wedding set to take place on April the 29th many colourful and patriotic designs have come back in fashion, with the Union Jack, bunting and designs featuring crowns and other royal memorabilia becoming a familiar sight in many home stores. Bright colours and patterns have also had a renaissance, with more people opting to go for what feels right, as opposed to the more subdued bathroom designs they see in magazines.

Robertshaw continues: “The Union Jack is a design that’s appeared over and over again in popular culture but it’s become more fashionable, and more importantly, affordable, in the wake of the marriage of Kate Middleton and Prince William, because so many people want to show their support for the Royal wedding. One theme that we at have noticed that keeps reappearing is that more people are opting to install more unusual and more living room like features in their bathroom, such as TVs, couches and even gas fireplaces, which is just extraordinary.”
