This year’s Surface and Materials Show will present a myriad of key trends, including the hotly-discussed emerging theme of hyper-nature. This interesting new concept will give designers wall-to-wall style options, with a collection of high-performance wall coverings that each present textural aesthetics influenced by the natural world. For bathrooms specifically, the market is already seeing designs leaning toward this trend, and thanks to the influences of Hygge, home-spas and greenery-inspired hues we only expect to see this grow in popularity.
From metals and marbles to distressed woods and raw stones, these elegant, earthy designs, are combined with the latest technological and material advancements to provide an instant stylish solution for any bathroom. Additionally, digital printing technology is making a mass effect in this style sector – allowing for bold colours, ‘ghosted’ images and exaggerated grain or textural effects to be easily attained, on a practical material.
The hyper-nature looks we’ll be seeing at this year’s exhibition include: Kerradeco’s African Wood – solid wall panels that offer the beauty of highly grained timber in an easy-clean finish; Fibo’s Roughwood Marcato – the company’s latest tile panel collection that offers modern matt, textured finishes, large tile designs and thin grout lines; Johnson Tiles’ Classics Carrara – a range of glazed ceramic wall tiles, inspired by the beauty of natural marble and stones.
