One of the most important rooms in a home is certainly bathroom.

A perfect bathroom gives one the opportunity to enjoy the time spent with oneself to the fullest. At the same time, a bathroom is also a very pragmatic room in which the harmony of design should be combined with the functionality of the furnishings.

Bathroom trend no. 1: coloured baths and sinks of stone mass
Coloured baths made of Xonyx stone mass. Modern form and the innovative Solid Surface technology are combined in the production of baths of stone mass. It is a novel solution offered by the company – the colour of the panel can be chosen based on the RAL code. This adds verve to your bathroom and creates wonderful extra options for designing a bathroom. In addition, Balteco offers stone sinks with similar designs.

Particular reasons to prefer a bath of stone mass:

  • warm and silky surface;
  • long lifespan of the material;
  • easy installation;
  • environmentally friendly material;
  • drain is covered with Xonyx.

Bathroom trend no. 2: an economical room design with fixed shower walls.
If you have a smaller bathroom, the best solution is to install a shower wall, shower screen or a corner shower in your bathroom. More and more, people have started to use novel solutions together with top-quality fittings.

Bathroom trend no. 3: a home outdoor spa — outdoor mini pools
In the Nordic countries, particularly in Finland, home spas are gaining popularity. An outdoor mini pool with massage options is installed to add value to a summerhouse or a house. They are also used at apartment buildings.
