Shape plays such an integral part in setting the style of your bathroom, it’s important to think about what look you’d like to create and what products can help you achieve it.

As something that plays such a big role in our daily lives, getting your bathroom just right is important. And when it comes to designing the ultimate bathroom, the shapes, patterns and finishes you select will form the basis for your space, from fixtures and fittings, right down to the accessories.

Whether it’s a minimalist style, defined by precise lines and sleek surfaces, or a space filled with organic shapes that ooze tranquility, planning a functional and beautiful layout will help bring your dream bathroom into focus.

The Kado Neue Arched Shaving Cabinet immediately softens a space

Soft curves and natural shapes

While strong symmetrical lines have long been popular in the world of bathroom design, natural curves are making a comeback. In a nod to the art-deco era, we’re seeing this classic shape with a modern update — think brushed brass finishes and matte black framing.

Ideal for introducing a softer feel to your space, this striking style brings with it an immediate sense of relaxation, sure to take your bathroom design to a whole new level.

From basins and baths to beautifully arched mirrors, curves are a staple of luxurious spaces. With rounded edges, these design-lead products work to soften the angles of the room and offer maximum relaxation.

When it comes to tapware, the Milli Pure Wall Basin Outlet and matching Wall Top Assembly Taps showcase the ultimate minimalistic design, featuring an effortless natural form that embodies understated luxury. Pair it perfectly with the sophisticated curve of the Milli Pure Curved Hi-Rise Shower, for the ultimate bathroom experience.

We’re loving the modern matte finish, and thin-edged design of the Roca Inspira Round Above Counter Basin. The perfectly rounded form sits just as perfectly atop a vanity that mirrors its curvaceous shape, as it does a more structured straight-edged alternative.

Similarly, the soft and simple silhouette of the Kado Neue Arched Mirror Shaving Cabinet is the perfect way to introduce or cement some organic form in your bathroom. We particularly love pairing it with other curved features for a look that immediately invokes a spa-like feeling.

Angular shapes and clean lines have long been considered a cornerstone of a contemporary bathroom. After all, a space featuring simple and sleek streamlined features immediately brings an air of uncluttered serenity.
