Bathroom decoration: 2018 trends
New collections, new finishes and new advanced solutions from the main firms in the sector
Per l’arredo bagno Arblu affianca alla collezione Dress le finiture in Pietrablu. È un esclusivo materiale composto da minerali e resine che permette di dare forma a molteplici soluzioni personalizzate
Cersaie 2017 is all about new bathroom decoration trends. We clearly could not miss this important event to discover the new trends and to understand how modern bathroom decoration is evolving. For what concerns restyling projects, the tendency is still to use new materials and advanced techniques to obtain thinner surfaces, higher performances in material duration and resistance, flexibility to meet every possible need and even more refined aesthetics.
Italian bathroom decoration is about the search for chromatic continuity. Arblu proposes a composite material, Pietrablu, to combine wall upholstery panels, shower trays, surfaces below basin and radiators. Choosing from the wide range of available colours, it is possible to match the stone-effect finishes with furniture and accessories from the Dress collection. The collection has been extended with new bathroom accessories, creating bathroom decoration solutions that are perfectly coordinated.

Aiming to revolutionise classic bathroom decorations, brands such as Flaminia and Gobo, focus on bathroom fixtures and decoration collections with contemporary shapes and refined nuances. Globo launched the T.Edge series, extra-slim basins available in all the fourteen shades from the ‘Bagno di Colore’ (coloured bathroom) range. The same colours have been applied to furniture from the Incantho series and to the ceramic wall drains, ensuring a great eye to detail.
Flaminia presented its new Flat and Slim versions of the Nuda basin in a new popular lava grey shade. During the fair in Bologna, curated by Giulio Cappellini, they also presented the wall-hung series Box, another novelty from the firm.
Double basins are increasingly popular in contemporary bathrooms. Alice Ceramica proposes a ceramic model with two separated basins, 120 cm long together. For those who prefer single basins, the firm created the Unica product line, which will be extended in 2018 with new models to customise with Materika finishes.
Hafro-Geromin also renewed the image of its bathroom decoration collections. Besides the new entries in the Change and STR8 lines, it presented the new Frantino furniture by architect Alessandro Tesolin, a tribute to Carlo Scarpa’s aesthetics.
The firm from Veneto also displayed their latest products in the shower sector. For instance, the Gemini shower cabin, implementable with G.Steam technology for steam bath, the Lama column with an integrated water hole in the new luxurious carbon version and the Stilè crystal wall that can even be a space partition.
Light and design are the two main features in the latest Duka product. The Natura 4000 shower cabin, which evolved aesthetically and technologically, is presented at Cersaie without the upper horizontal profile to highlight the purity of the crystal. The opening system can be sliding or pivoting, in both cases the closure in not in the centre, to save space. The Libero 4000 box was also presented in a new version with a rounded final wall.
Finally, Vismaravetro plays with graphics in its new shower cabins, obtaining refined effects. Skin, a walk-in model, is inspired by industrial style with square glass panels.
New technologies can combine the elegance of marble and the practicality of ceramics
