We are seeing a great revival of the surface and wall coverings decor. Starting from very original tile coverings, with lots of patterns, to ceramics that imitates in a very realistic ways natural stones and marbles, to new wallpapers. In fact, if you think that wallpaper is not suitable for wet areas, you are wrong: in fact, the latest wallpapers are made with fiberglass and they can be water-resistant, so perfect for the bathrooms.

The options for wallpaper design can be endless, also for those who prefer a more minimalist kind of decoration.

For example, TRALERIGHE is a wallpaper inspired by a minimalist grid in black and white. Available in 20 variations, its patterns are studied on a mathematical algorithm, intersecting as if they were alive and constantly moving.

The circular approach to design , as we have been sharing for many years now, is finally something happening and we are seeing this in many different ways, from a more conscious production in the furniture process, together with the use of innovative materials made of recycled resources , or the discovery pdf traditional materials to be used in new ways.

This is the case, for example, of cork. A durable, fire-retardant, elastic, light material that does not fear humidity – for these reasons, it is a perfect option for bathroom design. The new freestanding basin Borghi has a distinctive base which is entirely made out of recycled cork, recomposed by using only natural resins. Read more about Borghi here.

Among the bathroom items which are having the major changes and more interesting proposals, we have to mention for sure bathroom faucets and shower heads. From very minimalist to more decorated ones, with a touch of vintage style, faucets and shower heads are now distinctive elements to decorate the bathroom and make it unique.
