European Trends

Scandinavian design style is based on three features:

Simplicity, utility and beauty. 

The style embraces white and neutral colours, clean lines and functional spaces with natural materials.

In the bathroom the Scandinavian trend presents in precise thin edge bathroomware which maximises space and function, while looking modern and elegant. The technology behind the thin edge bathroomware makes the finish extremly strong and durable.

Functionality is cleverly hidden with the lack of clutter; think in-wall storage and cupboards under your basin. Rustic floating shelves or a wooden vanity cabinet add warmth and softness to the sharp contrast of white.

Dark and Moody or Light and Bright with Geometric Shapes

The Scandanavian colour scheme can be dark and moody or light and bright with geometric shapes, and features natural materials like wood and stone. Think about a stone look hexagon tile on the floor or dark plaster feature wall to create the right feel. If its colour you crave, then add a few colourful accessories with a sprig of flowers or artwork. 

Create a sharp contrast

The soft round Miena basin creates a sharp contrast against the hard lines of the rectangular wooden cabinet.  Add a round mirror, some subway tile or a moody feature wall, and this basin is a striking choice.

The thin edge trend doesn’t just stop at basins, there are several ranges available from Kaldewei and Duravit that feature this look.
