Get the look: Modern Industrial

With everyone in the UK spending so much time at home recently, it’s no surprise that many people are itching to give their interior spaces a makeover. The latest research from online trade directory, Checkatrade, reveals that 35% of Brits have come to dislike at least one of their rooms in lockdown and are planning to spend an average of £1,179 on improvements as soon as they’re able to.

If you’re dreaming of giving your bathroom a makeover, here’s how you can achieve one of 2020’s most desirable bathroom trends: modern industrial. With a raw, utilitarian aesthetic inspired by factories and warehouses, modern industrial style is the ultimate in bathroom chic. Think heavy duty materials like metals, marble and porcelain, bold lighting and bundles of practical storage space.

Achieve this look with our Aeon wall hanging unit which blends premium materials and raw design details to create a high-end industrial vibe, whilst the matt black metallic shelf on its underside is perfect for displaying towels or trailing plants, to add a touch of homeliness.

Get a bespoke finish with one of our premium ceramic basins for a more traditional look, or channel a boutique hotel and opt for a rectangular countertop in matching or contrasting materials, paired with a stylish vessel basin.

The beauty of Aeon is that it’s so versatile and complements almost any style of mirror or cabinet. Continue the industrial theme with Solstice’s matt black frame and decorative strap, or juxtapose Aeon’s simplicity with the elegant ornateness of our Arte or Deco mirrors for a truly unique and contemporary take on the industrial trend.

Modern industrial design lends itself perfectly to daring lighting choices. Throw the bathroom lighting rulebook out of the window and opt for one of our pendant lights, such as Rise. This stunning statement piece has a tapered glass pendant that diffuses ‘daylight’ illumination into the surrounding space, creating a fresh, spa-like ambience in your bathroom, whilst the metre-long wire allows you to hang it high or low to suit your bathroom and your taste.

No matter what your taste is, with our extensive range of elegant, mirrors, cabinets, lighting and accessories, it’s easy to create a beautiful bathroom that you won’t get tired of looking at.
