Maison Valentina blog is aware of all the trends of the moment. Be sure to check the predicted best luxury bathroom ideas and bathroom inspirations for next year. The year is not quite at an end, but the 2016 trends are already making their appearance in magazines and designers’ lookbooks. What is the next year keeping in store for bathroom decor? Let’s have a quick look at some of the hottest trends we’ll meet in the next few months.
In 2016, metals trend are coming back with full strength. Although we’ve seen a little bit of brass in 2015, you can embrace it fully in the upcoming year.
Along with brass, you’ll also find gold, silver, platinum, stainless and brushed steel as popular finishes for your luxury bathroom in 2016. Get a little bold with brass faucets or change the cabinet knobs to a metal finish.

2. Stones and minerals
Another beautiful 2016 trends will be the use of natural stones and minerals not just as decorative elements, but also as functional items, for example a polished stone sink instead of the typical porcelain.
Also think of stones and minerals as decor items: a stone bench near the bath, or a stool covered in a polished mineral. In Feng Shui, stones represent mountains and their calm, grounded qualities. It’s a good item to keep in the bathroom.
If your budget permits, you might even want to consider a luxurious marble or natural stone tub!
3. Green plants
Green bathrooms have made an appearance in 2015, but the green plant trend of 2016 will make having greenery in the bathroom a must.
I’ve talked about some great plants to use in your insuite bathroom. But if you are bolder (or renovating), think about adding a full green feature to the space: green walls and indoor gardens are cool and trendy right now.
4. Dramatic colors
If you’re tired of the white-and-beige bathroom, you’re in luck: this year, dramatic colors are back-especially black.
Black tile and paint will be used in rooms with dramatic lighting and stark contrasts. This also translates to bathrooms using a lot more bright colors, even just in the accessories.
In short, don’t be afraid to abuse of dark indulgence in your dramatic, glamorous tastes, especially in the ensuite bathroom where it’s unexpected.

5. Floral patterns
Floral isn’t kitsch anymore: it’s actually in!
Big flowers, small flowers, colorful flowers or understated flowers: they’re all trendy this season. Aside from real flowers in your ensuite bathroom (which you can totally do if you choose them right), add some floral patterns with your towels, your shower curtain and even a new floral print.
6. Pink in all its shades
Embrace your feminine side: pink is in.
Whether it’s bright, flashy hot pink or a more subtle pinky beige, an earthy taupe or cotton candy, it’s all about shades of pink this season.
In your luxury bathroom, don’t be afraid to abuse the indulgence in pinkiness: pink towels, pink bath math, pink cabinets and window frames, even pink paint or wallpaper. It’s all good.
7. Personalize it
More important than following these amazing trends is you giving your personality touch to your luxury bathroom and in any room of your house, never forget that there is nothing more luxurious than being original and authentic! Whatever it is, be original and show yourself in every detail.
2016 is coming!
It’s the end of the summer already, and 2016 is coming fast. These trends are sure to make a big splash once the new year arrives.
