One of the biggest trends for 2017 will see us all getting back to nature. The organic feel will be making a big comeback throughout the home, and the bathroom is the perfect place for this look. Slate or stone tiles on the wall or floor are an easy way to get a natural feel in the bathroom and also add a bit of drama to the room. Even having a pebbled floor around the bath can take you back to the beach in the summer.
For a fresh take on the trend, you could go for some exposed brickwork on your walls. This will add some instant cool to the room and it goes with most styles of bathroom. If you don’t want to commit to redecorating the whole room, you could just add a marble bath or, for an even smaller nod to the trend, get some wooden accessories like toothbrush holders.
A trend that we see year in, year out will be sticking around for 2017 - Vintage. Unlike previous years where we have seen lots of furniture inspired by mid-century designs, this year we will be seeing more Victorian themes in our shops and homes. If you live in an older property, it's time to maximise those period features. Make the most of your high ceilings with a chandelier or by restoring old ceiling roses.
If you’re handy and have a lot of patience, you can opt for an original to restore back to its former glory. For those with a bigger budget, you can buy previously restored originals online. A stunning roll top bath with ornate feet will be a timeless style that will add a real talking point to your bathroom. If you haven’t got the time or money to splash out on an original, there are some fantastic modern replicas on the market.

The final decor trend we will be looking at is a dramatic one! If you love bold decor then this is certainly one for you. This trend is all about making your bathroom look luxurious with some brave features.
Although your first thought for your bathroom walls is usually tile, you can go for something a bit different with a big patterned wallpaper. Dark florals or opulent Liberty type prints will give your bathroom a fresh new look. For a paper that will last, choose one that is specifically used in the bathroom, otherwise the moisture could cause peeling.
Another way to add some drama to your bathroom is with an illuminated mirror, like the ones from Pebble Grey. The glow of the bulbs are not only for adding a touch of glamour, but are also practical too.
