Are you planning to rejuvenate your bathroom in the coming months? Is the same-old, same old feeling stale? Then you need to check out the rising styles of 2017 and how they can make your bathroom a relaxing and pleasant place to be. From modern to a more natural taste, whatever helps you to relax can be achieved this summer by following a few simple style tips.

Vintage is most definitely on-trend at the moment and so is a style that you will find many accompaniments for. Having a revival surge thanks to television programs such as Downton Abbey and ITV’s latest outing with Victoria, starring former Doctor Who assistant Jenna Coleman.
Typically, a heritage-inspired bathroom is home to a freestanding and claw-footed bathtub. But, you do not have to take it to that extreme in order to get the look that you desire. Adaptable, you can make the period fit the bathroom in many senses.
Whether you wish to recreate a Victorian or more Edwardian style space or a time-travelling mix of both, you can always add a modern touch for a truly unique space. Including a number of original pieces – a mirror or vanity stand, for example – is also another way you can make space stand out.

Stone-effect porcelain or ceramic tiles can be surprisingly deceiving when compared to granite or limestone. Whether you choose the real deal or not, the country style is a great accompaniment if you have a similar wood-focused style in the kitchen or other rooms in the home.

This is the perfect style for someone who wants to stay modern and keep to a decent budget. The materials of the shimmering style tend to be quite budget-friendly, so you can have a fantastic looking bathroom for less money.
