5 Huge Bathroom Trends for Fall and Beyond

5 Huge Bathroom Trends for Fall and Beyond

September is a big month for fashion and interiors – a time when all the top names showcase the looks that will be big next year.

Inspired, we’ve been doing our homework on the big trends in bathroom design for this coming winter and into 2023.

Read on for ideas and must-try schemes…

The 2-in-1 Bath and Shower Zone

2-in-1 Bathroom Shower Zone - Bathroom Trends 2023

As we move into the new year, we’ll see more and more bathtubs and showers coming together in one zone. Not only does this look elegant and fresh, it’s practical too and will keep the rest of the washroom dry. The best place for a shower zone is near a window – ideal for post-bathing/showering ventilation.

Matte bathroom black accessories, such as the Tuzio Sorano towel warmer, below, would lend themselves perfectly to a minimalist take on this cool, new trend.

Bathtubs in Bedrooms

Bathtub in Bedroom - 2023 Bathroom Design Trends

Nothing says Self Care quite like a standalone tub in a bedroom. This might not be as practical as the two-in-one bath-and-shower zone, but it’s a trend that looks set to continue well into 2023.

This is where shower stools – such as Volkano’s models in matte black or matte white – are the perfect accessory. Perfect for placing your drink or your book on as you recline into a sea of bubbles.

Future Nostalgia

Huge Bathroom Trends for 2023 - Marble Bathroom

Designers and interior stylists are looking back to bathrooms of the past through a future filter, for a fresh new look. Expect a nod to Art Deco and kitsch pastel styling of the 1950s, all brought bang up to date with the addition of sleek, contemporary fixtures and fittings. Brass embellishments – and high-shine chrome – will add sparkle while matte black accents will bring punch and contrast.

Accessories such as backlit mirrors add style and ambience, while perfectly round vessel sinks such as the Calma Bassini vessel sink in superior cast marble will add a chic 2023 aesthetic..

Earthy Colours and Textures

Vasto Towel Warmer - Bathroom Interiors 2023

Natural materials are big news. Slate, bamboo, marble, stone, and woods all bring a sense of purity, calm and timeless elegance to a scheme – creating a spa-like atmosphere. A Tuzio Vasto towel warmer, as shown above, brings another dimension to the design, not to mention seriously cosy towels.

Outside-In

Kontour Linear Towel Warmer in scenic bathroom

Whether making the most of a large window in a washroom space – ideally overlooking a vast green vista – or by bringing in lots of plants and foliage, the ‘Outside-in’ look for bathroom continues to be huge for 2023.

Plants are a great way to enhance bathrooms in a range of exciting ways. Foliage can add serious style to existing schemes – and add an accent colour without decorating. Greenery elevates a space’s mood, too – bringing nature inside for a spa-like ambience.

Bathroom Renovation Inspiration for 2022 - towel warmer in bathrooom

Bathroom Renovation Inspiration for 2022

Renovating your bathroom should be a task you approach with excitement: choosing styles, colors and pieces that will bring your most-used room in the house to life. But let’s be honest, bathroom renovation projects are often met with trepidation and anxiety, with most people opting for the ‘let’s just leave it until next year’ approach. 

If you’ve been avoiding bathroom renovations because of worries about things like plumbing and drainage – it’s time to change your mindset. Bathroom interior design projects are in fact super simple and often prove to be one of the easiest rooms to transform with some simple DIY.

In this blog, we’ve put together some of our favorite bathroom style inspirations for 2022 and beyond. 

Bright Colour Splashes

Bathroom Renovation Inspiration for 2022 image 1

We’re loving these bright turquoise geometric tiles for something a little more impactful than plain old white. Experimenting with bold coloured bathroom tiles is one of the easiest ways to lend character to your bathroom space without breaking the bank. Whilst richer tones like deep emeralds have enjoyed a recent resurgence, there’s no doubt bright and bold is making a comeback, so don’t be afraid to step outside the box with your favorite color splash. 

Brushed Gold Accents

Bathroom Renovation Inspiration for 2022 image 2

The brushed gold hardware trend is definitely here to stay. A rich gold faucet is only a subtle sidestep away from the more traditional chrome hardware, but it can deliver a luxury accent and a memorable point of difference in your design scheme. The same goes with towel warmers. Opting for a brushed gold towel warmer is a powerful way to imbue a contemporary, metallic accent feature that acts as a stunning focal point in your washroom. 

Imaginative Shapes

Bathroom Renovation Inspiration for 2022 image 3

The fun part of any renovation project is finding the perfect way to establish the personality of your space. To create a washroom that has depth and character, you need to build fine layers of colors, textures and shapes that come together into one cohesive expression.  That’s why interior designers love getting creative with shapes and structures: they inform movement and lend personality to the space. We love the way our Tuzio Vasto towel warmer (pictured above) mimics the shape of the panelled windows – but with a little twist. By playing with the silhouette of the traditional ladder towel warmer, we’ve formed a design piece that offers something just a little off balance whilst still retaining the classic identity of a heated towel rail. 

Classic Glamour

Bathroom Renovation Inspiration for 2022 image 4

If you want your new bathroom to really stand the test of time, opting for timeless traditional pieces is the way to go. Let’s be honest, classic glamor oozes opulence and never goes out of style, so selecting more traditional vintage pieces will result in an elegant, enduring look and feel that you’ll adore for years to come. Our Tuzio Thames has all the vintage hallmarks: classic exposed shape, well-weighted bars and metallic finishes that echo the past beautifully. 

Rejuvenate your washroom with ICO

As much as we love building colors and textures, we believe the practical elements of your bathroom should be a primary consideration from the outset. Thinking about sanitary-ware, fixtures and accessories can help you plan your space with efficiency and creativity. Get in touch with our team to see how our carefully crafted collections can deliver comfort, luxury and design to your washroom.

Traditional Towel Warmers: The Timeless Bathroom Trend

Traditional Towel Warmers: The Timeless Bathroom Trend

If you’re searching for bathroom design inspiration, then you’ll probably be overwhelmed with choice when it comes to current tile trends and bold color palettes. But as with all interior design projects, it’s the finer details that truly bring the scheme together into a cohesive, finished look. Practical additions like towel warmers might not seem exciting at the start of your brainstorming process, but they can make or break your finished aesthetic. That’s why opting for something classic, that’s both versatile and timeless, will deliver lasting style pay-off for years to come: cue the traditional towel warmer.

Why we love Traditional Towel Warmers

The reason we love traditional heated towel rails? They bring that vintage-chic feel in abundance – blending cohesively with all types of design schemes, from big and bold industrial to charming ‘cottagecore’ luxury. The versatility of a traditional-style towel warmer cannot be understated. Having been a statement design feature in opulent hotel suites for decades, they’re now an affordable option for homeowners who are looking to add a little luxury to their bathroom. 

Traditional Towel Warmers: The Timeless Bathroom Trend

Versatile Aesthetic

The simplicity of a traditional towel warmer helps it blend cohesively into bathrooms of all shapes and styles. The vintage silhouette is the perfect choice for those who want a towel warmer to add warmth and depth to their bathroom, without it dominating the aesthetic of the space. We’ve styled our bestselling Tuzio Thames towel warmer (pictured above) in a soothing iceberg teal scheme with big contrasting hints of vintage luxury: a marble-topped vanity, a deep freestanding bath and elegant gold faucets and finishes to deliver a vintage-twist washroom moment. 

Simple Shapes

The beauty of a traditional towel warmer is in its understated elegance. The well-weighted bars are perfect for hanging towels and warming your bathroom without overpowering the overall design style. Whilst quiet and unassuming in their classic silhouette, vintage towel warmers still deliver that ‘wow’ moment when people enter the room – projecting an undeniable beauty through distinguished uniformity and restraint. 

Space-Saving

Traditional towel warmers are often a little more compact than other styles. As much as we love long heated towel ladders and experimental designs like the Tuzio Ortona, sometimes a petite towel warmer makes the most design sense. Choosing a traditional towel warmer allows you to have warm fluffy towels, a powerful secondary heat source and a classic design feature without compromising on essential space that might be better used for sanitaryware or storage. 

Easy to Install 

Most people approaching a bathroom renovation project worry about installation. We know why: pipework and drainage isn’t exactly your everyday business and the last thing anybody wants is dreaded flooding. But installing a towel warmer is far more simple than you might think. All traditional towel warmers are available in electric hardwired, electric plug-in or hydronic models – so it really can be as easy as securing your towel warmer with screws and flicking a switch to get your towel warmer working. If you want to learn more about the technical aspects of installing a towel warmer, check out our Complete Guide to Towel Warmers for everything you need to know and more.

Meet the Team: Daniel Stutterheim

Meet the Team: Daniel Stutterheim

In the first of our Meet the Team interview series, we’re catching up with our account manager, Daniel Stutterheim. 

Following a successful career in the fashion industry in Europe, Daniel moved across the world to develop his skills in branding and design expertise in the bathroom industry. We sat down with Daniel to learn about his story and what motivates him to deliver excellence each and every day with ICO. 

Tell us about your background and how you got into the bathroom design industry?

Prior to joining ICO, I worked in the fashion industry, specifically in managing branding and production of labeling, packaging and other key pieces which would communicate the brand of each company.  It was an exciting and challenging place to work as we assisted several global fashion brands which would be household names in many countries with their garment identity.  While the product and type of work differ a lot, there is a lot of crossover between bathroom design and the fashion industry as both are driven by trends.  The bathroom industry offered me an exciting change and the opportunity to learn something new.  Just as it is with seeing a label you directly worked on in a store, it is very rewarding to see ICO’s products showcased in homes around North America.

What inspires or motivates you on a daily basis?

Building meaningful relationships with my clients is what inspires and motivates me every day.  With a quality product and competitive price point, ICO is well liked and received by pretty much everyone I speak to but at the end of the day the biggest impact is created through meaningingful relationships.  I really enjoy working with my clients across Canada and the United States and assisting them in growing their sales in the categories we operate in.

Why is bathroom design important to you?

Before joining ICO, bathroom design and interior design was something I took an interest in; however I never appreciated the attention to detail in bathroom design until I joined ICO.  That is the most important factor to me in bathroom design, it’s the little things that make a half finished bathroom look complete.  Small details like robe hooks, consistent finishes, complementary color schemes etc.  It’s the small things that make the big thing complete.

As an account manager, how do you deliver excellence for ICO clients and dealers?

It is a similar answer to what motivates me: by building meaningful relationships where the client can have absolute trust in what ICO delivers and trust in me as their representative to the company.  This allows me to grow these relationships and support the companies we work with in a greater way.

What is your favorite ICO product at the moment?

Tough question, I think it is the Vasto towel warmer followed closely by the Summit series in PVD Gold.  I am also a big fan of our vessel sinks, these are unique and classy.

How energy efficient is my heated towel rail?

No modern washroom is complete without a statement towel warmer. Once considered a luxury, heated towel rails are now a popular feature in bathrooms of all shapes and sizes. But with consumers becoming more conscious of their carbon footprint, we’re increasingly asked about the energy efficiency of our towel warmers. Do heated heated towel racks guzzle power? Can they be turned off remotely? Are they controlled by timers?

We’ve put together a short guide answering some of the most common questions we get about the energy efficiency of our towel warmers.

Will a timer help reduce my energy usage?

As with all household goods, the key to responsible usage is all about timing. If you’re monitoring your energy consumption, then a timer allows you to have full control over when your towel warmer is operating. This means you don’t have to worry about leaving your towel warmer running until you get back home – simply set your controller to activate at times that suit your lifestyle. 

All Tuzio and Kontour towel warmers are available with WiFi controllers designed to deliver total ease to your everyday routine. With a smart WiFi controller, you’ll be able to programme your towel warmer for seven days with remote mobile access and voice assisted integration technology. Not only do timers help keep costs down: they save time and provide you with the assurance that you’re doing your bit for the planet too. 

Are electric models more energy efficient?

When used properly, both electric and hydronic towel warmers can be energy efficient heat sources for your bathroom. The benefit of choosing an electric towel warmer is that it doesn’t engage the rest of your heating system: meaning your towel warmer will work in isolation from your boiler system and utilise electric wire heating to keep your towels toasty. 

Electric towel warmers are perfect for warm fluffy towels, but if you’re looking for a secondary heating source for your bathroom, then a Tuzio liquid-filled towel warmer can reach between 45°C and 55°, taking just 20-40 minutes to reach maximum heat. 

How much do towel warmers cost to run?

Tuzio towel warmers draw between 150W and 450W. To calculate your energy usage, we’ve put together a simple formula to help you get a rough idea of how much a Tuzio towel warmer costs to run:

Towel warmer element size ___ watts (eg: 150watts – this is the maximum draw, not continuous draw)

Divide by 2 to get continuous draw ___ watts (eg: 75watts – this is the continuous draw from a 150w heating element)

Divide continuous draw by 100 to get kilowatts_____kilowatts (eg: 0.075)

Multiply by cost of electricity (per hr) in your area $ ___ /hour (based on $0.18/kw/hr, this towel warmer will cost $0.0135/hr to run – That’s about $2.27/month based on 6 heating hours/day)

Electricity costs vary from $0.07 to $0.18 by region. Check a recent bill from your power provider to complete this calculation.

Does a quick heat up time make it more efficient?

Yes – if you’re shopping for a towel warmer, keep an eye on how long they take to heat up. The quicker a towel warmer heats up, the quicker it will complete its job of warming up towels or acting as a heat source for your bathroom. All ICO towel warmers start to heat up as soon as they are switched on and they’ll start to feel nice and warm in just ten minutes. By investing in a high quality towel warmer that heats up quickly, you’ll benefit from vastly reduced operating costs and energy consumption in the long term.

sorano brushed gold towel warmer on blue tiled wall - Choosing the Right Towel Warmer Finish

Choosing the Right Towel Warmer Finish

Bathroom interior design is notoriously tricky, and striking the balance between the pretty and the practical can often prove to be an unenviable task. Whether you’re adding a little life to an en-suite, or giving your main bathroom a monumental makeover, choosing the right towel warmer will undoubtedly be part of the design process. 

When it comes to towel warmer selection, there are three key elements to consider: finding the perfect shape, size and finish. Whilst shape and size depend on the spatial aspects of your washroom, the finish is all about your aesthetic.

Afterall, heated towel racks don’t just bring warmth and comfort to your bathroom; they’re a statement design feature too. We’ve put together a few of our favourite heated towel rail finishes that could breathe new life into your bathroom…

Beautiful Brushed Gold

sorano brushed gold towel warmer on blue tiled wall - Choosing the Right Towel Warmer Finish

Probably the hottest trend for 2022, brushed gold hardware offers a sumptuous focal point in bathroom interior design. The metallic lustre of  Sorano in Brushed Gold delivers an elegant statement and the gentle shimmer catches the light gorgeously. This high-end finish complements warmer colour palettes exceptionally, so pair with velvety emeralds and deep navys to really set the senses alive.

Matte Black Moment

Matt Black Towel Warmer finish on patterned wall

Matte black hardware is the gift that keeps on giving. Once predicted to be a fleeting trend: strong, matte black hardware is now the defining feature of contemporary kitchen and bathrooms design. Most commonly seen in taps and small fixtures, a heated towel rail like Ortona in Matte Black is a big, bold expression of how matte black hardware can be a dominant feature of strong, modern bathroom design.

Classic Chrome Kiss

Kontour Chrome Heated Towel Rack

Sometimes, classic just works best. A bright, lustrous chrome towel warmer like Kontour Square in Chrome delivers the high-shine finish that characterises timeless bathroom design. Perfect for catching and reflecting light, chrome towel warmers are a simple way to make smaller spaces appear bigger and brighter. Chrome finishes are ideal for cooler colour palettes: think icy blues and silvery greys for the perfect marriage. 

Sumptuous Brushed Nickel

Vasto Brushed Nickel Heated Towel rail

The muted, understated cousin of chrome, brushed nickel is ideal if you’re trying to achieve a slightly more subdued metallic finish. Favoured in traditional bathroom design schemes, the deeper tones of Vasto in Brushed Nickel (pictured above) provide a stunning focal point that complements warmer colour palettes perfectly.

Wow with White

Sorano Matt White Towel Warmer

For something a little more out the box, matte white towel warmers are the daring choice for the trend-setters out there. Sorano in Matte White is a powerful modern design feature, perfect for imbuing a sense of calm and serenity whilst offering a signature, focal point in your washroom. A brighter, fearless take on modern design, a matte white towel warmer is the forward-looking choice if you’re willing to make a statement with your bathroom hardware.
