This is an Advertorial

Historically industrial style has been associated with large ‘American loft style’ spaces, however, elements of the industrial look has been adapted. It has become more accessible, especially for use within smaller and enclosed areas including bathrooms. Muted, softer versions of this look can work well, as the more obvious aspects of industrial styling such as rough weathered surfaces, exposed brick and pipework are often too harsh for, what is, after all a home.

Colour plays a large part in helping create the feel you want to achieve. Grey is the ideal partner for countless colour combinations in fact tones of grey are amongst the best-loved colours in architecture, by using darker tones in what is usually a light and bright area such as the shower you can influence the mood of the room.

A great example is the Stonetto shower tray from Duravit, which has been created to give the appearance of water-worn stone. Although available in lighter shades when used in anthracite or concrete, it can give the bathroom a much edgier feel. Stonetto’s unique design also enables you to create a ‘wetroom style’ bathroom without the expensed of tanking the room. Matching the darker tones of the shower tray to the floor surface and the creative use of tiles or wooden flooring enables you to give the impression of walking on concrete or an industrial style floor, straight into a shower.

Carefully selected bathroom furniture, such as the new XSquare range from Duravit is ideal for this more industrial theme. XSquare is elegant in design, the vanity units, mirrors and cabinets with their crisp lines and chrome framework, hint at industrial styling without overplaying the message.

Finally to achieve a defined look with dramatic definition, add a contrast of bright white. To do this include an angular counter top washbasin such as the Durasquare , include chrome mixer taps then select a matt finish and dark shade such as aubergine or cement, for your vanity units and bathroom cabinets.
